Jenny McCarthy may have gotten her start in the pages of Playboy, but don’t expect her to pose for the magazine again.

“I’m 36 — not that means I’m 100, but I just really like my clothes on now,” she said in a new interview with Michigan Avenue magazine.

But the star, looking fresh and glamorous in the mag’s six-page spread, stays in shape with Bikram yoga (the style of yoga in which the room temperature is heated up) and admits to the occasional touch of Botox.

“I love Botox, I absolutely love it,” she said. “I get it minimally, so I can still move my face. But I really do think it’s a savior.”

And though Jenny McCarthy has spent a happy three years with comedian boyfriend Jim Carrey, another thing she said she wouldn’t do again is tie the knot.

“I don’t feel the need at all to wear a white dress again,” she said. “I did it. I marked that one off the fantasy file.”

Adding that she calls him her “husband” anyway, she said that while Carrey’s been a great father figure to her son, Evan, she wouldn’t be trying for children with him.

“I can give all my attention to Evan, and … I can do all the great work that I want to do,” she said. “I don’t have another little baby to go home to. So I feel like God has a bigger plan for me than to get pregnant again.”

She also opened up about Evan, who she said has lost his autism diagnosis after a year of diet and detox.

“He is the most talkative, social 6-year-old little boy, who loves to play with his friends,” she told the magazine. However, she does have some regrets about making their battle public.

“The hard part is everyone from this day on will know Evan’s business,” she said. “People say, ‘Don’t you get worried that you made him the poster child for autism?’ And I say, ‘He’s the poster child for hope.’”
