Alluring Playmate Elizabeth Leigh

Meet this month’s cover star Elizabeth Leigh / @elizabethleighsullivan

Welcome to the Playboy family! Congrats on your Sweden Playmate Cover! What does this mean to you?  I am extremely honored and grateful to have been chosen. I remember the first time I saw the cover of a Playboy magazine when I was a young girl and thought “Wow, I want to grow up and look just like her!” 

What do you think of when it comes to Playboy and the iconic bunny? Playboy is such an iconic brand and it holds a special place in my heart. I had the pleasure of working with Playboy Golf in the US for several years. I met lifelong friends because of the brand and have so many great memories.

Describe your photo shoot for Playboy. The day started with early morning hair and makeup. Diana is such a beautiful soul and a talented HMUA. I’ve worked with her in the past, so it was great to catch up with an old friend and share this experience with her. The photoshoot took place at a picturesque ranch outside of Los Angeles complete with majestic horses and views. Arthur was so much fun and easy to work with. It was an honor to shoot with him. He’s so talented and I’ve always been a huge fan of his work. 

Have you ever been to Sweden? If not, would you like to visit someday? I’ve never been to Sweden, but it’s on my bucket list of places to visit.

What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you think of Sweden? The fairy tale landscapes! I would love to visit when you can see the Northern Lights. 

Favorite movie? Favorite actor? My all-time favorite movie is Rudy – I’m a huge Notre Dame football fan! Jack Nicholson is probably my favorite actor. If he’s in a movie, I know I’m going to like it. 

What type of music do you mostly listen to? I listen to all different genres of music. 90s country, especially Trace Lawrence, is my favorite! Although, Memphis Rap is a close second – have to show some love for DJ Paul and Three 6 Mafia.

What’s your favorite color? Green.

Where were you born? Where did you grow up? Where do you live now I grew up in Covington, Tennessee but Memphis is home now. 

If you could eat only one food for the rest of your life, what would it be and why? That’s a tough one! I love all the food. If I had to choose just one, I guess it would be steak. 

Favorite cocktail?  Depends on the occasion or season. I love a spicy Mezcal cocktail in the summer, especially when you add Tropical Red Bull! In the colder months, I warm up with a little bourbon. Can’t go wrong with Eagle Rare or anything from the Sazerac portfolio. 

Any pet peeves? Dishonesty! I hate being lied to. 

Biggest turn-on in a man? Biggest turn-off?  I love a man that can make me laugh. I’m also a sucker for dark hair and pretty eyes. Smoking is the biggest turn-off. Yuck.

Your best asset.  You decide.

Describe your perfect date. Anything you put thought into. It could be a home-cooked candlelight dinner, or going somewhere together I’ve never been. I love visiting new places or trying new restaurants. 

Besides modeling, what keeps you busy?  Work and travel! I’m a workaholic, but when I have time off, I’m probably visiting a beautiful beach. I’m also very involved in events within my community. 

If you could change any one thing in the world, what would it be and why? Poverty and crime. I think they go hand in hand. If we could improve our education systems, provide more economic opportunities, and improve health systems, it would make the world a better place.
