Stella was 21 when she became a Playmate.
By the late 1960s, her career had leveled off and she was appearing in roles based on her looks.
On set, Stevens also felt bored as all she was expected to do was stand around and look beautiful, and she was constantly yelled at by director Norman Taurog.
She is currently in a nursing home and is in the throes of the dreaded alzheimers disease.
