Playboy magazine has recently been embroiled in a number of controversies. Anna Nicole Smith rose to prominence in Playboy magazine when she was named Playmate of the Year in 1993. Larry Birkhead expressed his displeasure with the Anna biopic currently in production.

According to TMZ, Anna Nicole Smith’s biopic is in the works, and her ex-husband Larry Birkhead is not happy at all with the project. “Hurricanna,” as the film is currently titled, follows Anna’s therapist as she attempts to save Smith’s life. Holly Hunter’s character, the therapist, embarks on a “36-hour odyssey in which she unknowingly delivers the fatal blow.”

Larry Birkhead, Smith’s former lover and the father of their daughter, has strong feelings about a biopic centred on Anna’s final 36 hours of life. He claims she was sick in bed for 24 of her 36 hours, with little else going on. He also believes that a film about Anna should focus on the legend herself rather than her therapist. Larry compares it to making a film about Elvis from the point of view of his toilet, on which he died.

Birkhead believes Anna’s wild life would make a much better film. As you may recall, Anna was going through a lot in her prime, including the loss of her son, legal squabbles over money, and even a debate over whether Larry was the father of her baby girl, Dannielynn.


Larry understands that her death was not a big mystery that necessitated an investigation into her last day and a half of life. Remember, she died of an overdose in a hotel room in Florida in 2007. According to Larry, Anna’s fans and his daughter deserve more than a film that deconstructs her final hours. Her therapist should be secondary to the bizarre twists and turns she went through.

The producers of the film have yet to contact Larry or Anna’s estate for information on her final days. To get the latest updates, keep an eye on Thirsty.
