Jamie Foxx and Carmen Electra Add Tributes to Hugh Hefner


Jamie Foxx and Carmen Electra have added their tributes to Hugh Hefner as celebrities continue to remember the Playboy boss following his death on Wednesday (27Sep17).

Pin-ups Pamela Anderson and Jenny McCarthy were among the first stars to salute the 91-year-old publishing mogul, and now tributes are pouring in from all over Hollywood.

In a tribute on Instagram, Foxx writes: “If there’s anyone who lived life to the absolute fullest it was you.

“I will never forget the first party I went to at your house…,” he adds. “You welcomed me (and) allowed me to talk to you… and then you gave me the microphone and you let me turn up! I told you how I snuck into the Playboy Jazz Fest… and you said you don’t have to sneak in anymore… And for the past 20 years I’ve sat next to you at the most incredible jazz fest in the world.

“Your spirit and your energy will live forever… And I know the VIP in heaven is off the chain right now… Nothing but love and gratitude.”

Electra, who posed naked for Playboy on many occasions, writes: “I am so grateful I had the opportunity to shoot many Playboy celebrity pictorials with u Hef thank u for picking me and Bringing me into the magical world of Playboy! I just can’t stop crying and I can’t imagine how many (Playboy) bunnies (models) are crying for u too. U are a class act and I will always have gratitude for your kindness.”

Tributes have also come in from Rob Lowe, Gene Simmons, Lena Dunham, Cindy Crawford, Jenna Dewan Tatum, Paris Hilton, Kim Kardashian, and Nancy Sinatra, who simply called Hefner “one of the nicest men I’ve ever known”.
