Playboy Selects Pamela Anderson to be Final Nude Centerfold

Pamela Anderson will bare all for final nude Playboy issue 1:58

Pamela Anderson will be the last person to pose nude for Playboy, ending the magazine's more than 60 year publishing tradition, the company revealed on Thursday.

The former "Baywatch" star will be featured on the cover of the January/February 2016 edition of the publication, hitting newsstands next week.

"I got a call from (Hugh Hefner's) attorney who said, 'We don't want anybody else. There's nobody else, could you do the last cover of Playboy?'" Anderson told Entertainment Tonight.
