Sunday Mirror (Northern Ireland) - - News - EX­CLU­SIVE BY HALINA WATTS Showbiz Edi­tor

MAR­GOT Rob­bie is in talks to star in a film about Hugh Hefner – years af­ter turn­ing down his of­fer to ap­pear in Play­boy.

Hefner, who died last month aged 91, was a huge fan of the Hol­ly­wood ac­tress and wanted her to ap­pear in his magazine, say­ing: “She should be in Play­boy! Send her a mes­sage!”

At the time Mar­got de­clined and said she had “put her fam­ily through enough”. But now she is in talks with di­rec­tor Brett Rat­ner to play one of Hef’s wives in new film Rush Hour along­side her Sui­cide Squad co-star Jared Leto, who will play the US ty­coon.

A source said: “Mar­got turned the of­fer down be­fore but this is dif­fer­ent. She’s con­sid­er­ing it.”

Jared is also keen to se­cure a top role in the film for Mar­got, who starred in The Wolf of Wall Street with Leonardo DiCaprio.

The film source added: “Jared is work­ing on the movie with his buddy Brett and they’re re­ally push­ing for Mar­got to have a ma­jor role. She’s per­fect for a part and he’s not go­ing to give up un­til she ac­cepts.”

Hugh was mar­ried three times – first to stu­dent Mil­dred Wil­liams in 1949, who had two chil­dren with him, then in 1989 to Play­mate of the Year Kim­ber­ley Con­rad, 36 years his ju­nior.

She had two sons with him be­fore they split in 1998. In 2012 he mar­ried Play­mate of the

Month Crys­tal Har­ris.

It is not clear which of the wives Mar­got would play.
