Sherlyn called Hefner a true gentleman and told a leading daily, “"To have met Mr.Hefner at his magnificent mansion as his guest was quite exhilarating. His off-screen persona was a far-cry from his onscreen image. He was shy and very soft-spoken. I found him to be a thorough gentleman, one who knows how to treat a lady with respect, warmth and benevolence."
When Sherlyn was asked about her experience of shooting for Playboy, she said, "My Playboy cover shoot experience was nothing short of a paid luxury vacation. I was pampered silly by Mr.Hefner's staff and crew which made my cover shoot experience highly memorable."
