However, the pioneer of sexual expression does not approve of his illicit affairs.
"There are two great, false rumors this week on the Internet related to me. One is that I'm dead. The other one is the notion that I somehow approved of his (Woods') behavior because I said that I was not surprised by it,” Fox News quoted him as saying.
He added: “But I don't approve of it. I just was not surprised by it.
“The reason that I wasn't surprised is that he’s traveling the world. He's a handsome, young guy and beautiful ladies are throwing themselves at him.
“You never know the circumstances of a personal relationship or a marriage and how well it worked and I think that the immorality of infidelity is the lie. It isn't really the sex. It's the cheating."
Hefner feels Americans are still too uptight about sexual expression.
He said: “I think we're very hypocritical about it. Before Playboy, we were really repressed. It's not as bad now as it was then in the '50s. But we’re very hypocritical about it.
“And the very notion that obscenity is related to sex is silly. The very obscene things on this planet have little to do with sex. They have to do with war and bigotry and death and killing. They have nothing to do with sex.”
Hefner was present at the release of Benedikt Taschen's "Illustrated Autobiography: Hugh Hefner’s Playboy" in Beverly Hills.
