Playboy founder Hugh Hefner was the victim of a death hoax this weekend. To prove that he’s still alive, he posted a photo of him and his 28-year-old wife, Crystal (nee Harris) Hefner, dressed in matching red silk robes, getting ready for “movie night with the family.” He said they were going to watch Clint Eastwood’s new film, American Sniper. No word yet on what the 88-year-old publisher thought of the film.
In his 88th year, Hef is spending a lot of time reminiscing. Every Saturday on Twitter, he posts tons of old photos of him and his celebrity friends partying at the Playboy Mansion with the hashtag #scrapbooksaturday. It’s his very own #ThrowbackThursday. Whether it’s deliberate or not, with his new photo project, Hefner is certainly leaving a rich digital archive of material for someone to dip into when the time comes to write his obituary.
