Score one for the “curve” women.
Hayley Hasselhoff – daughter of David Hasselhoff – is the first plus-size model to appear on the cover of Playboy magazine.
The 28-year-old is making her topless appearance in stark contrast to the images promoted on her father’s iconic show, “Baywatch,” which featured impossibly perfect bodies.
Hayley Hasselhoff is on May 2021 cover of European Playboy and tells ITV’s Lorraine: “That was a television series in itself. I’m talking about real life here. I’m talking about real bodies, real people and right now what I’m trying to project is that you are beautiful just the way that you are.
“And whether that relates to my father’s journey or not – it pretty much doesn’t.
“I live a very different life than the person who is in my family and this a career path in which I’m able to project my own body positivity and hopefully be able to share this message with a lot of other people.”
She adds that her 68-year-old dad, and her mother, Pamela Bach, 57, are fine with her career choice.
“My dad is very supportive in the choices I make for my own career,” she told MailOnline, “My mum and my dad are always very supportive in everything that I have done.
“You have to remember I’ve been in this industry since I was 14 and I’ve been a curve model since I was 14.”
And about the pictures?
“There are a few photos that are tastefully nude where I’m topless,” she said. “At the beginning there were pieces of me like ‘oh Playboy…’ and then I had a think and I was like ‘oh cool!’ I get to make this movement for curve women during a global pandemic and let them know they have every right to celebrate their bodies.”
