Newly released in Playboy in 2011, Eva Lovia is Playboy’s first 18+-year-old Playmate. With stunning model looks and an enticing personality, it’s no wonder she’s quickly become a go-to girl for companies looking to create marketing stunts.

Potential producers suggested it be shot in color and not the black-and-white that Hall insisted on. Others wanted her to beef up the male roles in a story centered on two women.
