Christie Hefner, chief executive officer and chairman of the board of Playboy Enterprises, 2001. “This was taken for a magazine about the Internet. I’ve known Christie since we were in high school together at New Trier; I was working for Playboy then. My uncle was the manager of the Playboy movie theatre, and he got me an interview there with the photographer Stan Malinowski. I became his assistant. Years later I got a call saying that Christie was going to be made the new president of the company, and she wanted me to take her picture. Every year after that I would get a call. She likes my work, and she likes me because I’m fast.”
