The actress reveals she never intended the intimate shots her husband took of her to hit the pages of Playboy - but when he needed money, she agreed to free them up for the men's magazine in 1971.
Appearing on U.S. news show Access Hollywood Live on Wednesday (19Oct11), Evans said, ""We took the pictures for us. He loved photographing me and he took pictures of me every day.
""At one point in our life we ran out of money, he wanted to do something and that offer came (from Playboy bosses) and he said, 'Can we?' and I said, 'Yeah'.""
And Evans has no regrets about becoming a Playboy pin-up.
She added, ""They made me who I am today.""
