Maribel Guardia has received a compliment that many women on social media would love to receive so they could have the privilege and distinction of being able to say 'thank you but no thank you'. The ex-Miss Costa Rica beauty pageant winner of 1978 was asked at age fifty-sex to pose for Playboy Magazine but she 'passed' on the offer.
For entertainment fans her saying 'no thank you' to Playboy's offers was not as important as the fact that this over-fifty years old beauty is in such fantastic shape and deemed such a sex symbol by Latino males that the magazine editor asked her to pose for their magazine and even offered her not only a feature but also the cover! (El Impartial.com - September 12).
She reportedly passed on the offer from the men's magazine because of the perception, not the money, a reality that has her male fans flummoxed as it is apparent that she is flattered but cannot be swayed due to fears it might hurt her standing with employers. Often actresses who need attention will pose for Playboy Magazine but those who are in demand do not and she possibly does not want to give the impression that she is desperate.
However, her rejection of Playboy's offer, something she has done repeatedly to the magazine throughout her almost forty-year career is different this time because the offer reaffirms her status as one of the most desired actresses in Mexico at an age when many actresses would love for men to consider them sex symbols.
Maribel Guardia 'struck a blow' for mature women over fifty with her receiving and rejecting an offer to pose for Playboy magazine and is showing with her career and scintillating physique that she is a leading lady and sex symbol, an enviable and enticing package for television directors and producers.
