'The Playboy Club' actress says she's down, respectably
Actress Naturi Naughton will be playing "Brenda" in the new NBC drama "The Playboy Club." While her role on the network series doesn't require her to show any skin, she isn't opposed to going all out for the magazine.
She tells Huffington Post:
As far as me doing Playboy, I don't want to confuse the lines for fans. I'm playing a Playboy bunny -- that's different from being in Playboy as Naturi Naughton. I'm a character. But I'm not saying that I wouldn't do a fun thing with the magazine if it was something respectful and tasteful. I mean hey, you never know. And at the end of the day, if it was done in a very tasteful way that I feel comfortable -- and it would have to be in character. But I definitely try to make sure that people distinguish me as Naturi Naughton from the character and being a role, just like when I played Lil Kim. It doesn't mean that I am going to do everything that my character does as Lil Kim. I love embracing my sexuality, and being sexy and looking good. Every girl wants to feel gorgeous and that's wonderful, but I definitely would always want to maintain my values and just respecting myself.
Speaking of that Lil Kim role, if you can't wait for the day that she does decide to pose for Playboy, you can get a glimpse of the goodies during a scene in "Notorious," which is on DVD now. You're welcome.
