Sex icon Marilyn Monroe appeared on the first ever cover of Playboy magazine in 1953, so it is fitting that Hugh Hefner will be buried next to the legendary star.

The Playboy founder, passed away at 91 on Wednesday, Sept. 27  at his favourite place – the Playboy Mansion. Hef will be laid to rest at Westwood Village Memorial Park in Los Angeles in the same mausoleum as Monroe.

He famously bought the crypt adjacent to the “Some Like It Hot” star for $75,000 25 years ago.

Hefner’s remains will reside alongside many other Hollywood greats at the famous cemetery, including James Coburn, Rodney Dangerfield, Eva Zsa Zsa Gabor, Merv Griffin, Dean Martin, Natalie Wood and Farrah Fawcett.

The iconic publisher celebrated his 91st birthday in April 2017, posting a thank you note to all who wished him a happy one on Instagram.
