Jenny McCarthy had her breasts redone to make them smaller, she admits.
"Women have to get their 'tires rotated,' so to speak, every ten years, so I never had them fully removed, but I had them taken out and replaced only because I couldn't fit into normal dress sizes," McCarthy tells Fox News.
She continues, "I had to buy dresses in a bigger size and have them taken in so I just decided to get them taken down a bit. The boobs got a little droopier because of it, so there is a yin and yang to everything. But I feel better in my clothes."
McCarthy also opens up about her struggle to lose weight after giving birth to son Evan, now 7.
"I was 211 pounds when I delivered my son, so I know what it is like to be obese and fat and miserable," says the Jenny Craig spokeswoman. "I'm 5'6, so it was a tough thing to carry around; losing it is something I'm very proud of."
She says there's no real shortcut to dropping pounds.
"It took me a good year to fit back into my jeans, but it's all diet and exercise. There is really no magic pill; they are the two things you absolutely have to do to maintain good shape," she says.
She says she didn't have to work out in her 20s, but in her 30s, "it's a mandatory thing."
In addition to working out, "I eat a lot of soups and salads; I puree a lot of vegetables because there is still protein in vegetables. I love spinach salads with nuts so it's mainly vegetables," she says. "When I PMS, I notice I need extra protein, so I eat fish. Exercise is Bikram yoga and treadmill running like 'Hamster.'"
Her dream figure?
"Right now I want Lady Gaga's body," McCarthy admits. "I'm obsessed."
And even though she's 37, "I would absolutely pose for Playboy," she says. "I would be so flattered if they asked me. It's probably not going to happen, but I think I want to do it again."
She's an author, mom and activist, but Jenny McCarthy also knows the key to keeping her relationship alive with long-time partner Jim Carrey.
McCarthy tells "Extra's" Lauren Sanchez, "Keeping myself in shape and being really good in bed" helps keep things hot with Carrey. She adds, "And having true love."
McCarthy, 37, and Carrey, 47, have been together since 2005 and the former Playboy Playmate (Playmate of the Year, 1994) is still adamant that they won't marry. "I did it. I failed. Done. Now I just want to be happily in love."

The former Playboy Playmate says she isn't embarrassed to admit she uses Botox. "I love Botox, I absolutely love it. I get it minimally, so I can still move my face, but I really do think it's a savior."
Jenny and BF Jim Carrey have been going strong for over three years, but the star admits she still thinks about her high school sweetheart. "I think a lot about my high school sweetheart, Tony LoBianco, who I dated from the time I was 12 until I was 19. So, he was like, my whole life, and then I posed for Playboy at 20. I've never talked to him since, and I've always wondered what he thought... and don't think I didn't try to Facebook Tony LoBianco or MySpace him!"

Actress Jenny McCarthy is speaking out to "Extra" about the tragic death of Jett Travolta.
McCarthy, whose son Evan, 6, suffers from seizures, said, "When I head the news about Jett, my stomach flipped... Evan also, after a seizure, went into cardiac arrest where I lost him for two minutes. So I too watched the paramedics do CPR on Evan and didn't know if he was going to come back... I live on that edge that they have lived with Jett for all these years. I'm terrified."
Jenny reveals that she relies on beau Jim Carrey for support, saying, "He was my heart and he was my shoulder that I leaned on. He really, really helped me through those hard years and he helps me now."
The actress has been keeping busy, working on her Beautiful on a Budget campaign with Suave. "We're reminding women you don't have to spend a lot of money to look good," McCarthy explains, "Like going to beauty schools instead of pricey salons."
McCarthy bared all for Playboy in the 1990s, and when an "Extra" friend asked if she'd consider posing nude again, Jenny replied, "Yes, I did pose for Playboy a couple times and no, I would not pose again. I don't think there's anything wrong with it, but I seem to be noticing things are going south... I think I'm okay with leaving pictures of me in my 20s to the men out there -- and leaving the rest of my days to Jim only."
