Rosanna Davison has opened up about the time she met Hugh Hefner, who passed away at the age of 91 last week.
The Irish model, who posed for Playboy back in 2012, was once invited to the Playboy Mansion – where they had dinner and watched Charlie Chaplin movies.
Speaking following the news of his death, Rosanna has said that her experience meeting the famous publisher was nothing but “positive”.
“From my point of view I had nothing but a positive experience with Playboy and I don’t judge anyone until I’ve met them and spend some time with them and he was perfectly charming to me,” she told the Irish Mirror.
“Everyone has their opinion of his life, some people think he’s wonderful. Some think he’s not but I had a positive experience. He was perfectly generous to me.
“My agent in the UK and Germany were both contacted about it and I feel I’m not someone who wants to gain media attention off the back of somebody’s passing and I just wanted to pay my respects in whatever way I could and then move on.”
When asked if he invited her to be one of his ‘bunnies’, she said, “No that didn’t even cross my mind, I was engaged at the time and he was married too so there was never going to be that proposition.”
Meanwhile, Rosanna has revealed that she’s heading back to college – having set her sights on doing a Masters degree over in the UK.
Speaking to the Irish Sunday Mirror, Rosanna admitted that it’s always been a struggle for people to accept her intelligence due to her modelling career.
“People assume you’re not as intelligent as you are. It’s definitely always a struggle when you maybe want to make a career out of how you look and how your brain works.
“People find it hard to believe you do both or be a part of both areas. It’s always been a challenge for me to prove I can do both.”
“I think it’s a general society thing that people box you into a category and say well if you can make a living out of how you look then you certainly can’t make a living out of your brain.
“I’m probably crazy but I’m thinking of signing up to a Masters degree next year in nutrition with a university in the UK.
“But it’s distance learning so at the end of it, it’s university accredited, delving into sports and personalised nutrition, so it’s designed to help you work one on one with colleagues. I really want to go back to college, my brain misses studying when I’m not,” she added.
