“I like to dress up for Carl,” Dolly shared with E! News. “Every day, I put on some makeup and fix my hair because I think, ‘Well, the whole world, I’m out here and everybody else sees me all dressed up, and I’m not going to just kind of go home and just flop on him.’”

She continued, “Nobody wants to make out with a slouch! It’s important to me that I look as good as I can. I think it kind of helps keep things spicy.”

Last summer, Dolly re-created her iconic 1978 Playboy cover for Carl‘s birthday.

If you didn’t know, the couple has been married since 1966. Dolly‘s photo was a big surprise for fans since she and Carl keep their romance out of the spotlight. In 2020, Dolly addressed the rumors that Carl doesn’t actually exist.

In another recent interview, Dolly squashed another big rumor about her.
