Dolly Parton Recreates Her 'Playboy' Cover For Husband Carl Dean's Birthday

Dolly Parton first posed for the cover of Playboy in 1978, and has re-created it as a special gift for her husband, Carl Dean, for his 79th birthday.

“You’re probably wondering why I’m dressed like this,” the 75-year-old country icon said in the video to fans on social media, as she posed in the classic Playboy bunny ears, puffball tail and corset. “Well, it’s for my husband’s birthday.”

In the same video, Dolly also asked fans if they remembered when she said “I was going to pose on Playboy magazine when I’m 75? Well, I’m 75 and they don’t have a magazine anymore.”

She went on, saying that Carl, who has hardly been photographed, has “always loved” her original October 1978 cover photo and so, she recreated it for his birthday this year.

“He still thinks I’m a hot chick after 57 years and I’m not going to try to talk him out of that,” she said. “I was kind of a little butterball in that one. Well, I’m string cheese now, but he’ll probably think I’m cream cheese, I hope.”

Dolly joked after, “You think Playboy oughtta pay me for at least the photoshoot? I do.”
