PHOTO: Jenny McCarthy Poses for 'Playboy' at Age 39

The Love in the Wild host, who turns the big 4-0 in November, covers the magazine for the sixth time and poses for her seventh nude pictorial

Jenny McCarthy might have opted not to wax her nether regions before posing for a nude photo spread in Playboy's July/August issue (on newsstands this Friday, June 29) -- but, if the cover image is any indication, readers won't be disappointed in the slightest.

This marks the 39-year-old Love in the Wild host's sixth cover appearance and seventh clothes-doffing pictorial for Playboy. And if McCarthy had any reservations about taking it all off for her eight-page spread just four months shy of her 40th birthday, she sure isn't letting on.

"I'm really proud of it," McCarthy tells People of the shoot. "The pictures are really gorgeous and classy. They could be out of W magazine. They're really elegant. It's probably a lot more sophisticated than a lot of the stuff you'd see of people with their clothes on."

While readers will have to wait until the special summer double issue hits stands this Friday to see if McCarthy followed through on her promise and "grew out a bush" for the photos, there's something she says she most definitely didn't do to prepare: starve herself.

"The one thing I like about Playboy is they don't have the anorexic look," she tells People. "The women are voluptuous. So I didn't really want to diet. I just wanted to tone up."
