LOS ANGELES - Hugh Hefner says he's doing just fine. "I've never felt better," the 80-year-old Hefner told The Associated Press when asked Monday about a report he was in ill health.

A newspaper gossip item said Monday the Playboy empire founder had a mini-stroke. But Playboy spokesman Rob Hilburger insisted the report was "completely untrue." Then Hefner got on the phone with assurances he was OK.

"We had a lingerie party Saturday night and I went up a little early because (girlfriend) Holly (Madison) had a cold. I am in very good health," Hefner said.

Hefner hosted his "Midsummer Night's Dream" party at the mansion Saturday night and a movie-night gathering the following night, Hilburger said.

Guests at the Saturday party included Luke and Owen Wilson, Jack Black, Johnny Knoxville and Jimmy Kimmel, Hilburger said.
