Miss January 1994 Anna-Marie Goddard is one of the hottest international models to appear inside the pages of Playboy. Her pictorial appeared in the 40th anniversary issue of the magazine, making her Playmate selection quite an honor. She also served as Playmate of the Year 1995 for the Holland edition.
Anna grew up in a small fishing village in the Netherlands. During her senior year in high school she discovered a modeling contest through a magazine. Contestants sent in their pictures and the winner received a contract with an international agency. She sent in her photos but didn’t win. However, the agency recognized something special in her and gave her a contract anyway.
With her modeling contract in hand, Anna flew to Belgium to begin her new career. She visited Milan, Paris, Madrid, London, and Australia for photo shoots. One job required her to go to Miami. It was during her stay in South Beach that Playboy discovered her and asked her to pose for the magazine. She initially turned down the offer because she had vowed never to pose nude. A few weeks later Playboy asked her to reconsider. After consulting with her friends and family, Anna agreed.
Her Playmate pictorial opened the door to even more modeling opportunities. After appearing in the magazine, she posed for a number of high-profile brands including Pepsi, Mountain Dew, Pizza Hut, and Miller Lite. After a number of Playboy video roles, she found professional acting work as well. She guest-starred on a couple of hit TV shows including Baywatch, JAG, and The Drew Carey Show. She also landed small parts in feature films such as Austin Powers in Goldmember and The Master of Disguise.
After appearing in Playboy Anna settled down in the United States. She married fellow model and screenwriter Collin Goddard. The couple ran away to Las Vegas for their wedding. They have two kids, Ashton and Chanel. Anna successfully transitioned from in front of the camera to behind it. She and her husband opened their own photography studio, specializing in weddings. They operate out of Laguna Beach, California.
Although she loves America, Anna still holds fond feelings for Europe. She says she misses Europe’s “history, culture, narrow streets, and tiny villages without McDonald’s.”
