The 39-year old says her latest shoot is 'a lot more sophisticated'...
Actress/model/advocate Jenny McCarthy has once again set tongues wagging with her sixth appearance on the cover of Playboy - posing for the prestigious publication, aged 39.
The blonde bombshell is featured on the cover of the July/August issue wearing nothing but some black knee-high tights and coordinating fingerless fishnet gloves.
In addition to the cover photo, McCarthy appears in an eight-page photo spread inside the magazine, her seventh pictorial for Playboy.
McCarthy has since told People magazine that this particular photo shoot was particularly special because of the classy factor.
She stated: "I'm really proud of it. The pictures are really gorgeous and classy. They could be out of W magazine.
"They're really elegant. It's probably a lot more sophisticated than a lot of the stuff you'd see of people with their clothes on."
McCarthy made her Playboy debut in 1993 as a centrefold and later went on to be named Playmate of the Month and Playmate of the Year.
Shortly thereafter MTV enlisted McCarthy to co-host our popular '90s dating show Singled Out, which officially put the model/personality on the pop culture map.
Entertainment Weekly deemed McCarthy "the Vanna White for the MTV generation," and praised her plucky, outspoken and signature touchy-feely hosting methods.
McCarthy parlayed her fame into multiple roles in television series and film, including two of her own self-titled sitcoms, but in recent years has become more well-known for her work as an activist for autism awareness, on behalf of her own autistic son Evan and the challenges and preconceptions associated with parenting autistic children.
She also hit the headlines for her four-year relationship with The Mask actor, Jim Carrey.
