She was born in Houston as Vickie Lynn Hogan, but the world came to know her as the buxomly Anna Nicole Smith, and more will know her story as Netflix reportedly plans to make a film about her.
There is no title yet, according to Variety Magazine, and shooting is still in production.
Smith came to public attention modeling for Playboy, where she was named Playmate of the Year in 1993, and Guess Jeans, but she made headlines when she married 89-year-old oil billionaire J. Howard Marshall, whom she met while dancing at Rick’s Cabaret in Houston.
Smith died of a prescription drug overdose in February 2007 in a Hollywood, Florida hotel room.
