In a publicity bonus for both parties, it is reported that Jennifer Aniston has turned down Playboy, which allegedly offered her $4 million to do a photo spread. Entertainmentwise further informs us that Playboy offered a performance bonus of $10 million. Aniston has managed to gain attention over the years for artfully concealed nude cover shots, like this 1996 Rolling Stone page-sticker and last year’s for GQ, and Playboy attracts attention whenever Hef gains or loses “girlfriends,” or it makes an offer like this. Everybody wins, including the parents who don’t have to explain why the nice lady from Marley & Me is naked on Uncle Doug’s wall.
