Hugh Hefner Will Be Buried Next to Marilyn Monroe, Playboy’s First Cover Star

Hugh Hefner will be laid to rest next to Playboy‘s very first cover girl.

The magazine founder will be buried at Westwood Village Memorial Park in Los Angeles next to iconic actress Marilyn Monroe. Hefner, who died at the age of 91 on Wednesday, purchased the plot 25 years ago for $75,000.

Monroe, who passed away in 1962 at the age of 36, appeared on the first issue of Playboy in December 1953. Hefner was able to scrape together $8,000 to introduce the magazine with the decade’s hottest star on the cover.

The cemetery is the final resting place of some of Hollywood’s biggest names, including Natalie Wood, Farrah Fawcett, Truman Capote, Dean Martin, Zsa Zsa Gabor and Rodney Dangerfield.
