You would think Dancing With The Stars' Ralph Macchio has seen every inch of his dance partner Karina Smirnoff, but has learned there's something he hasn't copped a peek at.

We caught up with the Karate Kid Wednesday and when we asked him if he'd seen Smirnoff's nude photo spread in Playboy he shook his head and said, "Karina and I have an older brother / younger sister relationship."

"I haven't seen it and I won't," the 49-year-old actor said as he attended IZOD Indycar celebration of the 100th anniversary of the Indy 500 at The Colony in Hollywood. "I respect her and we have a great partnership. We're just focusing on what we need to do for the show."

Macchio showed up to the event fresh from the dance studio and was still excited over last weeks performance.

"We had a great week last week, especially with the waltz we did," the actor says. "I'm just loving it. We're just having a great time. Karina and I have great chemistry."

As previously reported, Smirnoff left little to the imagination in a sheer bodysuit on the cover of the new Playboy.

"As a dancer I've always embraced my body," the smoking hot 33-year-old told People of her 10-page pictorial. "I'm thrilled to show off my strong, toned physique in the pages of Playboy and celebrate my sexiness."

Smirnoff, who's engaged to portly Detroit Tigers pitcher Brad Penny, is hoping to win this seasons DWTS with Macchio.

In her time on the show, Smirnoff has been been partnered with Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino and Billy Ray Cyrus.

Dancing with the Stars season continues Monday at 8/7c on ABC.
