Former Playboy Playmate Cynthia Myers has died at the age of 61.
The busty beauty graced the cover of the men’s magazine in December, 1968 - just three months after she turned 18. The saucy shots had actually been taken when she was 17, but Playboy policy dictated that editors waited until she was of legal age to publish the images.
The Toledo, Ohio native also tried her hand at acting and made appearances on Playboy mogul Hugh Hefner’s Playboy After Dark TV series in 1969, before going on to land roles in 1970’s Beyond the Valley of the Dolls and 1972’s Molly and Lawless John.
Details about her death have yet to be revealed, but Hefner broke the news on his Twitter.com page on Friday (04Nov11), writing, “I’m saddened by the news of the passing of beloved Playmate Cynthia Myers, Miss December 1968.”
