Patti Davis, 58, Poses Nude (Again), Looks Awesome [NSFW]

The daughter of Ronald Reagan isn't new to stripping off her clothes for a photo shoot. She made history when she posed for Playboy when she was 42 years old — and sixteen years later, has done it again.

In this month's issue of More magazine, Davis details the love she has for her body at her current age:

I recently turned 58. My kickboxing teacher, who has known me for almost 20 years, recently commented, sort of in passing, that my body is in better shape now than when I posed for Playboy. I heard him, but I was concentrating on my spin kicks, so I put it on the back burner of my mind. That night, I stood in front of the mirror and thought, He's right. My muscles are leaner, longer, more defined now, and I felt again a sense of victory over the years of abuse I'd subjected myself to, and also over the huge amount of time I'd wasted on addiction. With every workout, I feel as if I'm winning back lost time.

She speaks of her youth, and the non-essential role fitness played in her life then:

I was 15 when I discovered both pharmaceutical amphetamines and tiny white tablets of speed, concocted in home labs or garages and sold on the street. The sound of pills rattling in a bottle was a lullaby to the pain in my soul. Over the years, I went on from speed to coke, and by the time I was in my twenties, I was in trouble. My body was wasted, my muscles thin and barely visible. I did finally quit, late in my twenties, grabbing onto some rope in my heart that I hadn't even known was there. A stubborn determination took over, a buried part of me that wanted to survive. I resolved to work my way back to health.

I've learned to stand in front of the mirror and look at the strength reflected there-the hours of training, the miles of running, the years of distance between the strong woman I am now and the wasted girl I once was.

As for plastic surgery — she does admit that she's has some work done above the neck, but that's it.
