Anna Faris, Playboy Magazine

Playboy Magazine

From high school geek to hot blonde on the cover of Playboy!

Welcome to Anna Faris' life.

The funny bombshell has landed the cover of the men's magazine for two reasons: She stars as a Playboy Bunny who moves into a sorority house in the upcoming comedy The House Bunny, and, well, she's friggin' hot!

But Faris, 31, wasn't always so confident about her looks...

"I felt unattractive, short and self-conscious about my body, and I would purposely emphasize that by doing odd things," she tells the magazine (it hits newsstands on Friday) about her teenage years. "I wore glasses, braces, odd hairdos and dumpy clothes...When I was a freshman I wore a Christmas-tree skirt as a cape. I couldn't get any dates until senior year."

While Faris doesn't appear nude in Playboy, she actually told me recently she was definitely tempted to strip down for the mag.

"I felt really sexy," she told me of the shoot. "I found myself totally getting into it. I was like, 'Let's just take it all off.' " (Her publicist convinced her otherwise.)

No surprise, but Faris wears body-bearing barely there outfits for most of the flick.

"I was working out hard," Faris said about getting in shape for the flick. "My boyfriend was like, 'Baby, you got to eat. You're losing your butt.' "

The House Bunny is the first full-length feature allowed to shoot at Hugh Hefner's legendary Playboy Mansion. "It was my first time there," Faris said. "It was surreal. There were randomly placed jars of baby oil but no babies that I knew of…It was great: peacocks, monkeys, hot girls and old men in pajamas! It was awesome."
