Keanu Reeves’ Mom Designed Dolly Parton’s Iconic Playboy Bunny Outfit
Yes, Keanu Reeves actually dressed up in Dolly Parton's original Playboy Bunny costume.
On the Wednesday (Dec. 15) episode of Red Table Talk, The Matrix star shared a story about his mother, costume designer Patricia Taylor. Taylor ended up creating the bustier used for Parton's Playboy Magazine cover back in 1978 and Reeves was able to wear it as a Halloween costume after the photoshoot took place.
"So my mother was a costume designer," he explained. "She made some costumes for Dolly Parton, and she once did the cover of Playboy, and somehow I guess she got to take that home. So we had it, and it was Halloween."
“So I put on the ears and the bustier,” he recalled. “I wore sneakers with fishnet stockings and the bowtie. I had some pretty long hair, and I was Dolly Parton as a Playboy Bunny.”
Unfortunately, he didn't share a photo of him in the costume, but fans are crossing their fingers that there is a photograph somewhere of him in it.
Earlier this year, Parton revisited her iconic cover by dressing up in a similar costume. She did this to celebrate her husband Carl Dean's birthday and shared a video with fans of her recreation.
"You're probably wondering why I'm dressed like this, well it's for my husband's birthday," she told her followers. "Member sometime back I said I was going to pose on the Playboy magazine when I was 75? Well, I'm 75 and they don't have a magazine anymore."
"So I was trying to do something to make him happy," she continued. "He still thinks I'm a hot chick after 57 years and I'm not going to try and talk him out of that. And I hope he agrees. What do you think?"
