GREENWOOD LAKE – Model, actress and comedian Julie McCullough will once again be a talent ambassador at this year’s Hoboken International Film Festival to be held in Greenwood Lake, New York from May 18th through the 24th.

McCullough, 53, appeared in several TV shows and movies in her 20s. She is now a successful standup comedian.

McCullough began her career as a model, then posed for “Playboy” magazine and was a Playboy Bunny. During that time, she was warned about comedian and actor Bill Cosby, who in recent months has been accused of drugged sexual attacks on woman years ago.

McCullough said friends who knew Cosby back then gave her advice, which she heeded.

“They told me to stay the hell away from him; as far, far away from him as I could possibly get if I ever saw him at the Playboy Mansion or because I would go to the jazz festivals sometimes and he used to host them,” she said. “And they always told me to stay away from him, stay far away. His reputation was known back then as having been a female abuser and from drugging women’s drinks, to beating them; all kinds of stories came out.”

In her acting career, McCullough appeared in such TV shows as “Who’s the Boss?” “Growing Pains,” “Beverly Hills, 90210” and “The Drew Carey Show” in the late 1980s and through the mid-1990s.

She will be at the Hoboken International Film Festival during its entire run later this month.
