While many of us have suspended our plans for the foreseeable future as the coronavirus pandemic continues to cloak the next weeks, months and beyond in uncertainty, Suzanne Somers already knows what she wants to do for her birthday over a year and a half from now: a nude photoshoot for Playboy.

To celebrate turning 75 in October 2021, the Three’s Company star says she wants strip down once again for the iconic nude mag, which she featured in twice in the ’80s.

“I would like Annie Leibovitz to shoot me nude for Playboy for my 75th birthday,” Somers told Access‘s Kit Hoover in a remote interview. While discussing Somers’ recent semi-nude shoot for People, Hoover mentioned that the actress does “nude really well,” before asking her if she’d ever make a return to Playboy. 

“Maybe on my 75th birthday,” Somers replied. “Actually, that would be really cool,” she added, before naming Leibovitz her dream photographer.

Somers isn’t the only celebrity to pick lucky 75 as the year for an encore Playboy shoot. Earlier this month, Dolly Parton announced she’d like to recreate her 1978 cover shoot for her own 75th birthday next year.

“I don’t plan to retire. I just turned 74 and I plan to be on the cover of Playboy magazine again,” Parton told 60 Minutes Australia. “I did Playboy magazine years ago and I thought it’d be such a hoot if they’ll go for it — I don’t know if they will — if I could be on the cover again when I’m 75.”

Considering the magazine recently featured veteran Playmates of all ages recreating their iconic shoots in Playboy‘s Winter 2020 issue, there’s a good chance the brand would be more than willing to welcome Parton and Somers back — though they’d have to grace a digital cover this time. Earlier this month, Playboy announced the magazine would end its six-decade print run with the Spring 2020 issue.
