Heather Rene Smith was Playboy’s Miss February 2007. She’s from Salinas, California, where she used to compete as a gymnast.
“I started when I was three because I had a lot of energy,” she told Playboy. She can still do a side split on the balance beam, and she showed it in her Playmate of the Month pictorial.
Heather got her start with Playboy as a Coed of the Week in July 2006, and she was so popular that the magazine gave her the cover of the October/November issue of Lingerie later that year. Hugh Hefner took one look at Heather and offered her the centerfold, and the rest is Playboy history.
These days Heather Rene Smith is a successful model and actress in Sacramento. She played herself on The Girls Next Door and Playboy TV’s Hot Babes Doing Stuff Naked and was featured on an episode of MTV’s The Hills. More recently, she appeared as a Playboy Bunny on AMC’s hit series Mad Men.
In addition to acting, she studies criminology and forensic psychology at Sierra College. “I like thinking about what makes people tick and why they act the way they do,” she said.
Heather is also a competent mechanic and rebuilt a 1964 Chevy pickup with her brother. “I can do a basic tune-up,” she said. “And I know how to change the fluids.”
When she’s not working or tinkering with trucks, she loves spending time outdoors. She enjoys hiking, camping, and going to concerts with her friends. “I can be really loud,” she said, “but I’m a romantic, and I tend to wear my heart on my sleeve. Someday I’ll fall in love and settle down.”
