From the waterfront city of Drammen, Norway to the luxurious Hollywood suburb of Bel-Air, Playmate Ingeborg Sorensen was determined to take advantage of every opportunity that came her way. Ingeborg had been working the pageant circuit around Europe for years before she found herself in Tokyo, Japan working as a model. In 1972, she was crowned Miss Norway and Miss Europe and was the first runner-up in the Miss World competition later that year. Her golden-blonde hair, sparkling blue eyes and all-natural, busty figure were international sensations which is how Ingeborg found herself in Japan modeling Norwegian designs. “Well, I'm halfway around the world anyway,” Ingeborg thought to herself as an American photographer advised her to move to Los Angeles if she wanted to make it big. “Instead of going home by way of Alaska and Moscow, I may as well go via Hawaii and Los Angeles.” With the California sun shining down on her blonde hair and fair Scandinavian skin, Ingeborg knew she would like it here. She booked small acting jobs including a Noxzema commercial starring Joe Namath. “How was Joe to work with? I'll just say very nice,” smiles our Playmate of the Month. After acting in the movie Kramer vs. Kramer and the television show Baretta, it was clear our Miss March 1975 had been bitten by the acting bug and she hopes to ride this wave as far as it’ll take her. “I'd like to be an international model and actress,” admits Ingeborg. As glamourous and as luxurious as these careers may seem, there is just one problem; they would force her to spend even more time away from her family back in Norway. “I know I have to live my own life,” explains our Playmate of the Month. “But, we're extremely close, like most European families, who always want to have the people they love around them.” With her house filled with animals—Ingeborg has four Venezuelan monkeys and a toy dachshund— and a lack of family here, she often finds herself fondly thinking of her homeland. “People care more about one another there than they do here, and they go out of their way to show affection. You always know you have friends. Here you have friends one day and if you don't have them the next, you don't much care. I'm sure that L.A. isn't typical of America, though,” believes our Miss March 1975. “Perhaps the film industry has something to do with it, but the truth is that a lot of the people I've met out here are very artificial. As it happens, most of my friends—the people I spend time with—are Scandinavian. I wish people here were a little more real.” Ingeborg Sorensen needs to look no further—American Playboy fans would kill for the opportunity to be her friend.
