Hugh Hefner dies elderly 91
Hugh Hefner in his personal phrases
The Prime Minister is the person responsible for bringing Playboy mag to Australia just about 40 years in the past.
In the wake of Playboy founder Hugh Hefner’s demise, Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull has recalled a commute he made to the United States to negotiate with the empire.
The younger attorney used to be on a project to download the Australian rights to the grownup mag for his shopper Kerry Packer.
“I did that deal in 1978,” he informed Channel 10.
“I went over there, I hate to say it, but it was nearly 40 years ago, to negotiate with Hugh Hefner’s daughter Christie.”
But Mr Turnbull stated he by no means stepped foot within the well-known Playboy mansion, despite the fact that “it would have been great” to.
“I negotiated it in their office building in Chicago,” he stated.
Mr Turnbull had a number of careers ahead of coming into politics, together with as a attorney, banker, businessman and journalist.
