Celebrating The Career Of Victoria Silvstedt!
One of the Facebook fans of my “2021 Sex Kitten Countdown” asked if I would look at some of the great sex kittens of the 90’s – and not only is Victoria one of those, I have a personal connection to her!
Victoria Silvstedt is a Swedish Playboy model and Actress. She was born on September 19, 1974 in Skelleftea, Sweden.
By the time she turned 19 years old, fame came calling…
In 1993, Victoria was the first runner-up in the Miss Sweden beauty pageant – can only imagine who won! She then went on to represent Sweden in the Miss World contest.
While there, she met a Modeling agent from Paris and has been modeling ever since.
Yes, THAT Melanija Knavs…
Here’s a fascinating fact : while she was a struggling Model in Paris in the mid-90’s, Victoria shared an apartment with Slovenian Model Melanija Knavs…whatever happened to her?
Victoria’s big break happened when she was chosen as a Playmate….she was 22 years old
She was chosen as Playboy’s Playmate of the Month in December 1996, but there was a bigger honor just ahead:
Victoria’s Secret Indeed!
That’s right, Silvstedt was chosen as the Playmate of the Year in 1997.
With that huge honor, she jumped into films!
She made her movie debut playing herself in the 1997 comedy “BASEketball” opposite the creator of “South Park.”
Of course, she ended up in a hot tub!
Of course, no matter what she did on camera, what she did in magazines was impossible to top, as the camera loved her!
Victoria also was a Radio and TV Host, Singer, and get this: she was a former national-level skier in Sweden as well!
There doesn’t seem to be anything she couldn’t do…which leads me to my “wet” connection!
This is a gorgeous photo from Victoria’s 2000 calendar…it’s filled with twelve stunning shot of Silvstedt…
So why do I know she did this calendar?
Because I have one!
And not only that – she signed it to me!
You see, while she signed the calendar to me, it was because I have a producing team shooting a story with her – hence the TV Hostess part of her credits – and when they came back, they presented it to me!
A year later, she had her most popular film role in the 2001 movie “Out Cold”, along with a younger Actor who had stardom just ahead…
- “Hello Inga. I’ve never been a man of words, but there’s something I have to say to you. Inga, I’ve loved you from the first time that I saw you, and I love you more than any man’s ever loved a woman that he’s never actually spoken to. I’m only gonna offer this once. Inga, will you… have sex with me?[long pause
- “Nothing would piss off my stepfather more. Let’s do this!”
Yes, Zack Galifinakis was just a nerd in a hot tub, but it seems to have turned out all right for him!
Victoria recorded a CD called “Girl on the Run” that topped the European Billboard charts!
Not only that, but the video to her single “Hello Hey” reached number 1 on European MTV!
The Actress / Model / Singer continues to have multiples businesses, and bravo to her for a career that was empowered and fun – and for signing my calendar!
She’s just one of the many Playmater who became stars across film and TV – like Denise Richards, who was in “Starship Troopers” and a “Bond girl” too!
You can see more of her provocative Playboy photos by clicking on my story here:
Oh, and as for Denise’s breakthrough role: “Starship Troopers” was directed by Paul Verhoeven, who also made this film:
That’s right: he gave Elizabeth Berkley the chance to bare all in “Showgirls”!
