Hailey's Novel Diary – 7/7/17

Has anyone ever made a movie about Hugh Hefner? It doesn't really matter. I'm only mentioning it in passing. It will never be as detailed as the Bertolucci movie.

A quick search reveals that Brett Ratner is trying to make a Hefner movie. That makes sense. There's plenty of room for nudity and drugs in that subject. I'm kind of surprised no one has already made it.

Like Bertolucci, Hugh Hefner is not the youngest kid on the block. He could go soon, which is probably why they're trying to make a movie about him. If he dies right before or right after it's released, that would only help ticket sales. That sounds cold, but that's how studio executives operate.

In looking up Hugh Hefner, I've just looked at a website full of naked pictures. I have to say, at least as far as centerfolds go, Playboy is a pretty boring magazine. If you look at them in chronological order, it's just the same thing over and over again. The hairstyles change, both drapes and carpet. Up until it's all hardwood floors. The poses go from teasing T&A to soft focus spread eagle. But essentially, it's just the same thing month after month.

I guess that was exciting when it first came out. How many places could lonely men look at pictures of half naked women in the '50s and '60s? But with the internet, those centerfolds are obsolete. And all that airbrushing is just annoying.

I just realized that if my book happens to come out before any Hefner movie, it will look like I predicted it. That would be funny.

No hate, please. There's enough of that in the world already.
