Looks like someone’s been doing their Van Halen history homework.
The website Grunge recently posted a video on their YouTube channel all about what became of Lillian Müller, the woman who played the teacher with all the right moves in Van Halen’s classic “Hot For Teacher” video.
Here are some of the interesting notes Grunge revealed about Müller:
Müller had started as a model in Western Europe, appearing, according to her website, in the pages of French Vogue and modeling in London. That led to yet another bit of pop culture infamy: Müller was named Playboy’s Playmate of the Year in 1976. Her website relates that Lillian went on to become the most featured “Playmate Of The Year” in the magazine’s history, scoring nine covers from 1975-1999.
Müller went on to score guest roles on American television for several years, including appearances on the original ‘Magnum, P.I.’ and ‘Fantasy Island’, along with a couple of supporting roles in films, before moving into a new career arc. She studied at The Actors Studio in Hollywood before launching her brand as a motivational speaker.
She then returned to Norway for more television work, including that country’s version of ‘Dancing with the Stars’. According to her website, she’s published a couple of books, including her autobiography and a volume of advice on personal health for people over the age of 40, all while raising a daughter as a single parent. She claims she’s never consumed alcohol, and has been a staunch vegetarian since her mid-20s, which perhaps led to her “Sexiest Vegetarian Over 50” title in December 2010 from People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals.
