Eugenia Yuan: Playboy Babe of the Month

Chinese American actress Eugenia Yuan plays an evil Geisha in Memoirs of a Geisha. A little promotion doesn’t hurt, she must have thought. So now she is ‘Babe of the month’ in the December Playboy (USA) edition.

“In America,” she says, “I’ve never been seen as this sexy person or the girl who’s hot. But Playboy is a big step. Maybe now people will see me in a different way.”

  1. A much better pic than the previous Eugenia article – thanks Robin! We aren’t going to get any nasty emails from Playboy’s lawyers though, are we? 😉

  2. Actually Robin, do you know who the photographer was here? That’s one of the most original and sensuous Playboy shots I’ve seen in quite a while.

  3. See the ‘ALT’ on the picture 😉

    For those of you not familiar with ALT: this is the text you get to see when you hover with your mouse over a picture and stop moving the mouse. ALT stands for Alternative. This is what people see when the picture is loading or will not load at all. And people with eye-sight problems will see this on their text output machine.

    Unfortunately the highly acclaimed Firefox browser does not seem to support this handy ‘alt mouse-hover’ feature…

  4. I never been a fan of Playboy, but that pic is great. I like how there is something left for the imagination when you look at her. As for breasts implants, I’m against them, especially for Asian women because they don’t need them. They will look a mess when the woman gets older and then need surgery to get them removed because they put so much stress on the back as well as pose a health risk all for the sake of superficiality.

    Francine Dee is my prime example. She was gorgeous without them. But she had to get these huge fake breasts that look a mess when she is naked. She was gorgeous without them, and now she is just ok.

  5. Yes Robin, thanks! Eugenia is hot! It’s so funny you posted this because I just rented her DVD last week called “Mail Order Wife”.

    This movie is very entertaining and I highly recommend it to anyone who has not seen it. Eugenia’s acting is teriffic in it.

  6. The story sounds like fun, but the rating is not that good: 5.9 out of 10. Usually I don’t watch movies with an IMDB rating under 6.5, unless there is an Asian beauty in it. So this one is on my list now! 😉

  7. Holy moly! Remember back when posing for Playboy was a BAD thing for an actress to do? How times change.

    Thanks for the tip. I’ve been in love with Eugenia since Mail Order Wife, and also dig her and Jacqueline Kim in Charlotte Sometimes (see my reviews @

    Tony D, I’m not sure where you’re coming from on the implants, but I’d bet money she’s 100% natural.

  8. Hmm, she looks quite a bit different than she did in the past but maybe it is just the lighting, makeup, and the way they did her hair. I wouldn’t have recognized her if they didn’t say it was Eugenia Yuan.

    As far as not being found sexy in America, I find that hard to believe since I thought she was very sexy in her first film role Charlotte Sometimes. I suppose what she may mean is that she hasn’t been asked to be featured in magazines like Maxim, FHM, and Playboy but I think that is more due to the fact that she hadn’t been in a major American film so wasn’t as bankable.

    When I tried finding good pictures of her for the Asian Sirens feature that was referenced, I didn’t come across any that I felt represented her beauty that well. They were mostly low quality screencaps with a few small headshot photos. I used that particular photo from the Hong Kong film “Three : Going Home” because she won a major Hong Kong acting award for that role where she had to pretend to be dead and lie motionless in a bathtub.

    Anyway, I don’t mind if someone wants to change that photo of Eugenia Yuan (and the text that refers to it).

  9. Although I don’t agree with Tony re breast implants (as I’m sure verybody knows!), I absolutely agree that this is a truly great and sensuous photo. To be honest I don’t feel Eugenia is especially pretty by Asian standards, but in this shot she just looks awesome.

  10. Someone please help me understand how a magazine with 226 pages gives one page and only one photo of her. She could have received at least two pages.
