“When the caterpillar thought it was all over; it became a butterfly.”
Lillian Müller was born on August 19, 1951 in a small town by the sea in the South of Norway. Spending her early childhood in the financial turmoil of the post-WWII era, her determination to make something of herself was imbedded deep within. Lillian spent her formative years burying her head in books igniting an optimistic sense of reality that differentiated from the world around her. In the meantime she blossomed into a strikingly beautiful woman who would go on to become a successful model in London where she strutted the catwalk, graced the pages of French Vogue, and hit the stands as the “Page Three Girl” in the London Sun. After being discovered by Playboy she moved to America and was featured as the 1976 "Playboy’s Playmate Of The Year." Lillian went on to become the most featured "Playmate Of The Year" in the history of the publication and has nine covers from 1975 through 1999 to her name. To date, Lillian has more than 1,000 cover stories and features in international media publications as a celebrity and supermodel.
Utilizing her beauty and charm, Lillian found herself as a desired commodity in the acting world where she has been featured in more than 30 movies and television shows, such as Remington Steele, Starsky and Hutch, Once Upon a Spy, Eischeid, and Fantasy Island. Intent on perfecting the art, Lillian immersed herself in studying under talented acting teachers. Since 2009 she has been studying under Oscar Winners, Martin Landau and Mark Rydell at The Actors Studio in Hollywood, which is home to legendary actors, such as, Al Pacino, Gene Hackman, Meryl Streep, and Tom Cruise. Throughout the years Lillian has starred opposite of established leading men such as Tom Selleck in Magnum, P.I.; Tony Curtis in Casanova & Co.; Rock Hudson in Superstunt II; and Bill Cosby in The Devil and Max Devlin. She has also costarred with Pierce Brosnan, Elliot Gould, Vincent Price, Dudley Moore, Kirstie Alley, Harry Hamlin, Dennis Hopper, and Ted Danson. Most recently Lillian has been circulating amongst Norway’s mainstream media, starring in hit television shows such as "Ja, Vi Elsker Hollywood" (Yes, We Love Hollywood - 2011), "4-Stjerners Middag" (4-Star Dining - 2011), "71 Grader Nord - Celbrity Edition" (71 Degrees North - 2010), and most recently, "Skal Vi Danse" (Dancing with the Stars - 2012).
The portrayal of Lillian as the leading female vixen in Rod Stewart’s "Da Ya Think I’m Sexy" music video could not stray farther from reality, as she is a walking advertisement of health and fitness. In December 2010 Lillian won PETA’s Sexiest Vegetarian Over 50 title, which was well justified thanks to her 35 years as a vegetarian. She promotes her vegan lifestyle through her book, Feel Great, Be Beautiful Over 40, as well as her lectures as a motivational speaker. This past half-decade Lillian has been well received by audiences listening to her speak about health, fitness, beauty, and anti-aging. She acclaims that her youthful looks and demeanor are the product of her healthy lifestyle, as well as the fact that she has never tried tobacco, alcohol, or drugs. Lillian’s charismatic and informative lectures have proved to be a sensation for those she has inspired throughout the years all over the US and Norway. Her fascinating life story, as well as her transformations from the runner-up of Miss Norway; successful fashion model; most celebrated Playmate of the Year of all time; actress; and finally today as a health guru and inspirational speaking leader, have all elicited immense interest culminating in the creation of her 1998 biography, Usminket, and two documentaries, Tillbake Hos Hef (The Lillian Müller Story - 2003) and more recently, "Lillian Müller- Mitt i Livet" (Lilian Müller - In the Midst of Life - 2012).
