Minka Kelly hasn’t compromised her integrity for the pursuit of fame.During a Wednesday interview on The Late Show With David Letterman, the 31-year-old Charlie’s Angels star recalled a time when she was approached by a former Playboy Playmate who offered to take Kelly under her wing.
“I was 19. She was very seductive and said that she wanted to manage me and that I had a lot of potential,” Kelly said. “She said that she could get me a job at this doctor’s office in return for plastic surgery which I would need to be a Playboy Playmate.”
“All I needed was lipo, fake breasts, a few veneers and all kinds of stuff,” the actress laughed.
Though Kelly took the job offer, she only lasted “about a month” because she realized plastic surgery wasn’t for her. “When I told her that I didn’t want that, she said I would never be Playmate of the Year and I said, ‘I think that’s okay. I’m okay with that.'”
Letterman, 64, assured the sexy brunette that she made the right decision. “The stuff that you have is fine,” he told her.
Kelly also briefly opened up about her ex Derek Jeter, who she dated for three and a half years. “He is a tremendous guy,” she said of the New York Yankees shortstop, 37.
When Letterman joked that he “always wanted to date Derek Jeter,” Kelly responded: “I believe it! You show his house every night.”
