Brett eyes Mar­got for Hefner wife role

Sunday Mail (UK) - - News - James Sex­ton

Sui­cide Squad star Mar­got Rob­bie is set play Hugh Hefner’s ex wife in a biopic about his life – ful­fill­ing the 91-year-old’s wish.

The magazine mogul died last month. He pre­vi­ously gushed about the star, say­ing: “She should be in Play­boy. Send her a mes­sage.”

At the time, Mar­got de­clined and said she had “put her fam­ily through enough”.

Now di­rec­tor Brett Rat­ner is in talks with Mar­got to ap­pear in his Hefner biopic Rush Hour.

If she agrees, she will ap­pear along­side her Sui­cide Squad co- star Jared Leto, who will play Hefner.

A source said: “Mar­got turned the of­fer down be­fore but this of­fer is dif­fer­ent.

“She’s not strip­ping down for the magazine, she would be play­ing a role in a movie and she’s con­sid­er­ing it.

“Jared is work­ing on the movie with his long-time di­rec­tor buddy Brett and they are re­ally push­ing for Mar­got to have a ma­jor role in the film.

“Jared is bug­ging Mar­got no end. She’s per­fect for a part and he’s not go­ing to give up un­til she ac­cepts.”

Hefner was mar­ried three times. First to stu­dent Mil­dred Wil­liams. They had two chil­dren to­gether.

In 1989, he mar­ried Play­mate of the Year Kim­ber­ley Con­rad, who was 36 years his ju­nior. They had two sons be­fore split­ting in 1998.

His third wife and widow was Play­boy Play­mate of the Month Crys­tal Har­ris, who he wed in 2012.
