Jennifer Aniston has turned down a $4 million offer to pose naked for Playboy. Magazine boss Hugh Hefner reportedly approached the former Friends star after her recent photoshoot for GQ, in which she posed nude except for an appropriately placed necktie. According to the National Enquirer, Hefner tabled a bid that could have earned Aniston as much as $10 million, with rewards for high sales. But sources claim the 40-year-old star isn't interested in showing off any more of her body, and turned down the offer.

No wonder Playboy is in trouble. The brand has clearly lost much of its luster in recent years, as they used to land big name actresses all the time, from Marilyn Monroe to Bo Derek.
On the other hand, I'm not sure if Aniston is making a huge mistake turning down that kind of money for a day's work. She pretty much showed us everything but the naughty bits in GQ anyway, so what's the big difference at that point? I say take the cash and run. Sure, Marley & Me was a huge hit over Christmas, but Aniston is turning 40 in a few months and that generally marks the end of large paydays for actresses, even if she does have the body of a 30-year-old.
