David Hasselhoff says the best party he ever attended had naked Playboy models walking around covered in body paint.

The 'Baywatch' star was a guest at one of Hugh Hefner's annual Midsummer Night's Dream bashes at the Playboy Mansion, which are held at the sprawling Los Angeles property on the first Saturday of every August, and he can never forget the night because the paint soon came off.

In an interview on British station BBC Radio 1, he said: "Hugh was there but he doesn't remember it. The bathing suits were all made of paint so it was basically no clothes, it was mainly painted on clothes. By the end of the evening I had painted on clothes too.

"There were lots of Playboy bunnies but some didn't have paint on at all. I had paint on from hugging the girls. I had my clothes on though, I'm 'The Hoff', I don't take my clothes off."

Although he insists he doesn't strip off, David was reminded he has previously taken part in a nude photo shoot for a magazine and joked his manhood was so impressive it was difficult to adequately cover up.

He said: "That was for Cosmopolitan magazine, that was very tastefully done, I had two Shar Peis [breed of dog known for its distinctive features of deep wrinkles and a blue-black tongue] covering me. They brought in one but that wasn't enough!"
