Susan Bernard (born February 11, 1948) is an author, actress, model and business woman from Los Angeles, California. She is the daughter of photographer Bruno Bernard, professionally known as Bernard Of Hollywood.
Susan Bernard is the author of six books, including "Marilyn: Intimate Exposures", "Bernard Of Hollywood's Ultimate Pin-Up Book" and "Joyous Motherhood". She is also the president of Bernard of Hollywood/Renaissance Road Incorporated.
She appeared in Playboy Magazine in December 1966, and was believed to be the first Jewish Playmate of the month, though in recent years Cindy Fuller, Miss May 1959, has claimed that she was the first Jewish Playmate.
In an interview in the August 1998 issue of Femme Fatales, Bernard revealed, "I was the first under-18 Jewish virgin who was in the centerfold placed in front of a Christmas tree" and that she'd never been nude in front of anyone other than her mother prior to posing for Cassili, who had been one of her father's apprentices. Her father was photographer Bruno Bernard, Her ex-husband was playwright/actor Jason Miller and their son is actor Joshua John Miller. As of November 2008, Bernard was working on three books about her father.
