Picture Trivia
          Do you know that Hollywood actress and fashion model Denise Richards posed nude for Playboy barely five months after giving birth? Richards, who is known for her portrayals in such films as Blonde and Blonder, Starship Troopers, Wild Things, and The World Is Not Enough, was the former wife of actor Charlie Sheen. On March 2004, she gave birth to their first child. Barely five months later, she did nude pictorials which appeared in a 10-page spread of the Playboy December 2004 issue. She was even labeled by Playboy as “Drop Dead Gorgeous,” and was also the magazine’s cover girl.
