It may have taken a while, and it may have included one canceled wedding, but Hugh Hefner is now happily married to Crystal Harris.
And the Playboy founder tells the new issue of Esquire that, contrary to popular opinion, his union could not be more ideal.
“All our friends think it’s made in heaven,” Hefner says. “It’s only people who don’t know us who simply use us as stereotypes in terms of age and beauty. I just feel very, very fortunate to have found her at this stage in my life. I saved the best till last.”
And just how many women came before Harris?
“Over a thousand, I’m sure,” Hefner said of his magic number, though he’s quick to tell the magazine:
“There were chunks of my life when I was married, and when I was married I never cheated. But I made up for it when I wasn’t married. You have to keep your hand in.”
Well, sure. But the better question would be: How does this 86-year old keep a certain other body part up?
