Hugh Hefner's gonna be pissed ... 'cause "Zero Dark Thirty" star Jessica Chastain tells TMZ she's totally down to get naked in front of a camera ... but it will NEVER be for Playboy.
The Golden Globe winner was leaving the Brentwood Country Mart yesterday when we congratulated her on locking up the cover of Vogue -- and Jessica told us for her next shoot, she's hoping to do something a little more "risque.'"
So, naturally, we brought up Playboy ... but Jess shot that down hard -- saying, "I'll be naked in other magazines but not Playboy."
For the record, Chastain's not just talking the talk -- she's been naked in a couple of movies before "ZDT" ... including "Lawless" and "Jolene" ... the latter of which happens to be available on Netflix.
Chazz Palminteri's also in "Jolene" ... but don't worry -- he's totally clothed.

'50 Shades' & Playboy Are Both Porn
... and I Support Both!
10/20/2013 12:35 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
If a woman can read "Fifty Shades of Grey" in public ... then a man should able to peruse a "Playboy" wherever he wants, so says famed author Anne Rice who tells TMZ she supports PORN EQUALITY!
Anne is a literary titan -- penning the books behind "Interview with the Vampire" and "Queen of the Damned" -- and she's also big into erotica.
So, when we asked her why the social standards are different regarding the two publications -- Anne is clear, she thinks society should embrace both literary AND visual porn .. saying, "fantasy and pornography and erotica are wonderful."
'Wire' Star Idris Elba
I NEVER Really Watched the Show
10/17/2013 1:32 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Idris dropped the bomb while talking to Playboy this week -- and said he was forced to watch an episode or two during screenings ... but never once by choice.
Don't worry Stringer fans ... Idris doesn't have anything against the show, he just claims it's too hard to watch because he's critical of his own work.
Idris, if you decide to watch on HBO Go ... skip the last season (but it's still one of the best shows ever).
State Farm is 'Despicable'
7/19/2013 6:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Mark Salling doesn't buy that State Farm is like a good neighbor .... he's suing the insurance company, claiming its refusal to cover him against sexual battery allegations is "despicable" and "malicious."
TMZ broke the story ... Salling was sued by a woman who claims on one occasion when she was dating the "Glee" star ... she insisted that he wear a condom during sex but he refused and forcibly had unprotected sex. The woman -- a former Playboy model -- claims she went to his house later that month to demand proof that he was STD-free, and he responded by pushing her to the ground.
Salling claims in his lawsuit the State Farm homeowner's policy requires the company to foot his legal and other bills connected with his defense, but State Farm has repeatedly refused.
Although there's no mention as to why State Farm won't cover Salling, we're guessing the insurance company is hanging its hat on a provision that excludes criminal acts from its coverage.
As for the sexual battery case against the actor ... it's ongoing.
Bears' Brandon Marshall
Screw Training Camp
I Love Wine & Pilates!!
7/16/2013 10:25 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
NFL star Brandon Marshall is about to blow your mind -- 'cause it's not every day you meet a wine, yoga and Pilates lovin' football star!
We caught up with the Chicago Bears' wide receiver at the Playboy Mansion -- probably not the best time to remind him training camp starts in 9 days, but we did ... and his response was awesomely honest.
"It sucks. Right now ... you got stuff like Espys and Playboy parties. Now you gotta go to camp, you gotta go to a dormitory for a month?"
Brandon also revealed he and Jennifer Aniston have more in common than we would have ever thought -- you gotta see him light up talking about his love of Pilates, yoga ... and fine wine.
Brandon Marshall. NFL Renaissance man.

Chris Brown didn't let the threat of 4 years in the big house get in the way of a big night out in Hollywood Monday ... because Chris partied like a rap star at the Playboy Mansion.
Brown -- whose probation was revoked Monday afternoon in the Rihanna beating case -- mugs with 2 cute chicks at a charity event to celebrate the MLB All-Star game.
Chris hung with Snoop Lion and L.A. Dodgers phenom Yasiel Puig (fast becoming a Hollywood party animal).
Playboy Mansion with the homies ... every guy's cure-all.
Lindsay Lohan to Oprah
$2 Mil For My Thoughts!
7/16/2013 6:05 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Lindsay Lohan's guts don't come cheap, because we found out she's spilling them to Oprah at a cost of around $2 million.
Sources close to Lindsay tell us ... The Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN) has been negotiating with Lindsay for 4 months. The plan -- an 8-part docu-series about Lindsay's struggles, her career and her plans for the future -- but we're guessing it's mostly about her struggles.
It's a better deal for Lindsay than just taking her top off. For that ... Playboy paid her a measly $1 mil.
Ironically ... Lindsay's latest rehab stint may have scored her more cash, because of the drama and interest created around almost going to jail, firing her lawyer, going to Betty Ford, bailing from Betty Ford ... and on and on.
Sources tell us ... Lindsay actually signed the deal at Betty Ford.
Lindsay got some perks from Oprah as well -- as in TWO fully-paid assistants and a stylist.
Substance abuse can pay handsomely -- Who knew?
Hey, we interviewed Lindsay for free -- check it out!
REJECTED By Playboy
7/15/2013 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
INTERGALACTIC EXCLUSIVE: TMZ has learned, "Teen Mom" porn star Farrah Abraham will be living out every young girl's fantasy to model nude for Playboy magazine!!! Just kidding, Playboy rejected her sorry ass.
Sources tell us, the star of "Backdoor Teen Mom" reached out to the men's magazine following her sex tape release about appearing fully nude in an upcoming issue ... one of her lifelong dreams.
But the mag said no way, ho-se.
That didn't stop Farrah from trying one more time though -- we're told she reached out again last month ... and the magazine shot back with a SECOND NO, saying they just didn't have enough room for her.
Makes sense ... her new boobs are pretty damn big.

Looking like a cross between Coco, Anna Nicole Smith, and two young girls who just got their hair braided on a cheesy summer vacation, Playboy's famous twins Kristina and Karissa Shannon resurfaced in L.A. recently ... or at least their tanned asses did.
Caution: slippery when wet.
Playboy Mansion Attack
$62k Settlement for Chick
Who Got Punched in Face
6/25/2013 5:10 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Name: Alessandra Mendes
Pet Peeves: Getting punched in the face at Playboy mansion parties.
Likes: The $60k settlement she just got for getting punched at Playboy mansion party.
TMZ has learned ... the chick who allegedly took a fat German fist to the face (from a fat German rapper) during a party at the Playboy mansion back in 2009 has just struck a deal to drop her case.
We broke the story ... Mendes claims a famous German rapper named Xatar got all drunk and unruly at the shindig and popped her right in the kisser ... breaking her nose.
Mendes sued everybody under the sun ... but eventually struck a settlement with Playboy and The Privilege Agency, which apparently had a role in throwing the event.
Playboy kicked in $31,250 ... explaining they just wanted to "buy its peace" and make the case go away. Privilege kicked another $31,250 ... totaling a fat $62,500 settlement.
We reached out to Alessandra -- but got no response ... so we typed her name into Google images and found some pretty hot lingerie pics of a person who might be her. At least we hope it's her. If so, her nose healed quite nicely.

... with a Penis Pump
6/12/2013 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
What does "Gigolos" star Nick Hawk have in common with Austin Powers?? They both have a special affinity for penis pumps, baby ... YEAH!
Hawk -- an original cast member on the Showtime series who also happens to be a real-life male escort -- broke out the dong-enhancement device for his recent full-frontal photo shoot for Playgirl ... and TMZ has the pics.
No word if Hawk's penis pump is of the Swedish variety ... unlike some other people we know.
