Lisa Matthews is Playboy’s Miss April 1990, and she went on to be named Playmate of the Year 1991. Born in Peoria, Illinois, Lisa was a tomboy growing up. She told Playboy, “I played all kinds of sports, like baseball, football, horseback riding, and snow skiing.” Lisa’s family moved a lot when she was a child, eventually settling in Los Angeles.
After graduating from high school, Lisa began modeling. She appeared in several Playboy videos and Special Editions as well as the movies The Adventures of Ford Fairlane, the Bruce Willis comedy Hudson Hawk, and a video release called The Kudzu Christmas.
In a 1990 interview Lisa described her dream date to Playboy: “Sitting on the beach at sunset with my man, drinking champagne.” Lisa revealed that she’s turned on by “salmon-colored roses, sunsets, the outdoors, friendly people, and lingerie,” and turned off by “rude people, tattoos, traffic, and guys who have longer hair than me.”
