The PLAYBOY PHILOSOPHY
Installment III: Conservation & Environmentalism

COOPER HEFNER
There have been a few moments over the years when PLAYBOY has encouraged discussion around conservationist principles, but for the most part this has not been an issue upon which the Rabbit has taken a strong or permanent position. Delving into the archive to explore our history on the subject, I recently came across a 1983 Playboy Interview with famed American photographer and environmentalist Ansel Adams—one of the last interviews he participated in before he passed away.

Your recent Centerfolds have been simply amazing. The ladies of present-day PLAYBOY, such as March Playmate Elizabeth Elam and July Playmate Dana Taylor, seem to have a sophistication reminiscent of Playmates from the 1970s. I will consult my copy of the Complete Centerfolds book for further study.

Rainey Qualley is painfully shy—until you press PLAY. “I started dancing when I was two,” says the 27-year-old, who makes music under the name Rainsford. “I’m introverted, but when you’re dancing, you have to experience it, to be in the music rather than passively listening.”

In the new Hulu documentary Obey Giant, Shepard Fairey admits that the Andre the Giant sticker that launched his career as an artist was something of a joke. He was working at a skateboard shop, designing boards and stickers while attending the Rhode Island School of Design, when a friend pointed out an image of the pro wrestler in a local circular.

STEPHEN REBELLO
Finely attuned to the motivations of both gods and monsters, with plenty of room left over for ordinary humans, Guillermo del Toro’s films are as uniquely his own as anything from David Lynch or Tim Burton. Consider Cronos, del Toro’s debut, which he made in his native Mexico while still in his 20s.

ALEXANDER CHEE
In the spring of 1994, my last semester at the Iowa Writers’ Workshop, I was lucky enough to be selected for the writer Denis Johnson’s fiction workshop. Johnson, who died in May at the age of 67, was then in the middle of his career. He had published four of his eight novels and four of five collections of poetry, and his novellas and plays were ahead of him.

After seven years of mocking celebrities on basic cable, Chelsea Handler has discovered that she prefers to ply her exfoliating wit on issues more pressing than Kim Kardashian’s Botox. At 42, with a freshly launched talk show on Netflix, the new Chelsea is ready to get serious. She admits it’s part of growing up: With age comes maturity—and better decisions.

“I am well educated, I am a feminist and I don’t act or sing, so what am I doing posing nude for PLAYBOY?” asked Vicki McCarty—journalism grad and lawyer to be—in the article she wrote to accompany her pictorial. The Los Angeles native decided to become a Centerfold in part because “it began to seem that my first experience with sexual stereotyping would be self-inflicted if I succumbed to the notion that being a liberated woman meant that I could not pose nude.”
