Hugh Hefner's happy to be used

HUGH Hefner doesn't mind if women use him to get famous.

The 86-year-old media mogul - who recently reunited with Crystal Harris, a year after she ended their engagement just days before they were due to get married - insists he wouldn't be "offended" if people dated him just to further their own careers.

Asked if he would be upset if women used him for sex or fame, he said: "I wouldn't be offended in either case. It is reality that women use me to become famous and it would be ridiculous to turn a blind eye to that.

"And if they use me for sex it is above all a big compliment in my age."

The Playboy founder is known for dating much younger women and he thinks that is because his tastes haven't changed at all since he was 20.

Asked if he ever wishes he had a partner his own age, he told Zeit Online: "Honestly? No. My taste has never changed. When I was 20 I fell in love with 20-year-old women and today I still fall in love with 20 year olds. It's not the worst - if you can afford it."
