Hugh Hefner wants Miley Cyrus in Playboy - in three years

Hugh Hefner has floated an idea that will have Disney and dads of teenage girls cringing - he wants Miley Cyrus to pose for Playboy.

In three years when she turns 18, that is.

"Sure, she'd be welcomed in the magazine," he told "Extra." "Very pretty lady."

Better known to her adoring tween fans as Hannah Montana, Cyrus is a pretty 15-year-old Lolita now.

Hefner's offer comes just as Disney was damping down the controversy over Cyrus' vixenish Vanity Fair spread, in which she shocked her prepubescent fans and scared her corporate minders - by baring her back.

The last thing Disney wanted was for Hefner to utter the words "Miley" and "Playboy" in the same sentence.

Playboy's 82-year-old founder scoffed at the fuss over Cyrus' spread.

"I think to make such a big to-do over something as innocent as those photos, I think is a reflection on how schizophrenic America is about sexuality," he said.

Hefner has a history of courting underage ingénues for his magazine.

Just before Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen turned 18, Hefner called them "every young man's fantasy" and implored them to strip for his centerfold. Now 21, they passed.

More recently, Hefner made a pass at Lindsay Lohan, who also said no. Instead, the troubled 21-year-old actress did a sizzling New York magazine spread that became a sensation.
