Lindsay Lohan to pose nude for 'Playboy'? File under: News that makes me sad.

Dozens of actresses desperate to cling to fame have increased their celebrity by posing for Playboy. So why does it seem so sad that Lindsay Lohan might be the next one to follow (birthday) suit?

TMZ reported today that the Mean Girls actress — who’s currently in trouble with the law — has agreed to pose for Hugh Hefner’s magazine for nearly $1 million. Her rep told EW he cannot confirm whether or not Lohan will indeed pose, but it wouldn’t be too surprising that a woman who already appeared partially nude for New York magazine would accept a big payday to star in another tasteful shoot. (UPDATE: X17, via People, spoke to Lohan’s mother, Dina, who said Lohan did indeed post for Playboy.) Yet, I can’t help but feel sad hearing this news.

I know plenty of former Lohan fans have grown tired of supporting the actress. She’s been given so many chances — why should we still feel for the actress and her problems? Still, while other fading stars’ jump to Playboy seemed like a natural progression (ex. Debbie Gibson, Shannen Doherty, Lisa Rinna), the thought that Lohan would pose for the magazine just feels desperate. And not in Gibson and Rinna’s dying-to-make-a-headline kind of way. Instead, it seems as though she’s dying to get a headline that doesn’t surround her legal troubles. (Lohan is facing jail time for a possible parole violation.) After all the bad PR surrounding the actress, she needs something to get fans and industry insiders to forget about her substance abuse and legal issues — it might seem like her nude body plastered on the page of a magazine is the only thing to do it. Even though Lohan has certainly made questionable choices in her life, how can you not have sympathy for someone with so few options?

Lohan, in recent years, has become a very public celebrity who has had no qualms talking about her problems with drug use. That’s admirable. But, should she pose for Playboy, she might be revealing simply too much. Her personal and familial problems have been on display for years — convincing her to put her body under the same microscope just feels like exploitation. Here’s hoping she decides to reject Playboy‘s offer and continue improving her image in community service, where she can stay far away from mean boys and girls’ prying eyes.

Are you feeling sad for Lohan, PopWatchers, following this news? Or did you expect this years ago?

    Yeah, I’d pay to see that.

    • Herez Pilton

      Her gash is already on the internet. And it ain’t pretty.

      • lu23

        My best friend has just announced her wedding with a great man who is a cele+brity!
        They met-via { himillionaires.сσм }
        It is nice club for rich men or pretty girls mate.
        You do not need to be wealthy or famous, but you can meet your true love, it’s worthy a try.

    • More “News that makes me sad”

      1) That Lindsay is an addict who refuses help
      2) That Lindsay is surrounded by sycophants and parasites
      3) That the legal system is too fu*ked up to punish her
      4) That EW devotes time and energy to covering her latest screw-up instead of devoting resources to any one of the hundreds, if not thousands of entertainment professionals who are doing things that are much more interesting
      5) That Dina Lohan will attempt to turn this desperate cash-grab into something “artistic” and “beautiful”
      6) That Michael Lohan’s tired @ss will have something to say as well

      • Rach

        You comment that EW devotes too much time and energy about her yet you seem to know a lot about the family.

      • MPBerry

        And you forgot…

        7) Lindsey Lohan seems like a self-abosorbed a-hole teen-ager (who’s far too old to act that smirky and eye-rolling).

        But yeah, you go on blaming everybody BUT her for her own idiocy.

      • DUH

        @MPBerry – did you not read #1?

      • @Rach

        EVERYONE knows about this family and its dirty little non-secrets by this point, Rach.

      • Jason

        The legal system should stay out of people’s business unless someone is hurt by her!! If she wants to take drugs let her take drugs!!

      • GagMe

        Hasn’t most of Hollywood already seen it?

      • Andrew. G

        Evidently you never had to face Addiction to Drugs,theft, you were probably abandond put up for addoption because you were a F***ing pain in your mother Ass
        I know I was a pain in my mothers ass, a clepto wanted what others had so I stole it but I grew out of it and became a hard ass worked my ass off to get it. I never had a mommy that got me what I wanted nor was I born with a F***ing silver spoon in my mouth and Lindsey well she’s going thru it just a bit older so leave her the F*** alone. Find someone else to ruin F***er’s

    • Cygnus

      I guess if you like Meth-Mess Porn.

    • Strepsi

      DINA LOHAN has now moved one big step closer from being a figurative pimp to being a literal pimp.

      ALI LOHAN better start working her pole moves, because mommy’s weave and vodka don’t come cheap.

    • Hary Seldon

      I doubt that she’ll be the Playmate of the year but her chances are growing to become Inmate of the year.

      • Osbored

        Well Hary, as a celebrity pictorial she will not be considered a “Playmate” and therefore will not be eligible for “Playmate of the Year”. I get what you were going for, but it’s just not possible.

      • Neeraj

        huh??? why the hell would i be against the video its just? for emearteinntnt purposes and the cartoon is of an adult, however, its jacking off to a cartoon of an 8 year old girl i have a problem with. put it away sonny.

  • jj

    I am surprised she could srill get the playboy offer. she has the face of a 48 year old woman and she has lost and gained weight so many times her body is saggy. way 2 go linds. maybe some 70 year old guys like hugh heifner would call her hot but noone else.

    • Jay

      I’d still do her. And I’m not 77… just saying

    • Hola

      Im in my mid 30′s and in-shape, i would f the sh it out of her. She’s crazy but still got a nice rack!

      • punch drunk fool

        I’m with you man haha I’d f*ck her hard

      • Jackie

        Single huh. Tock’s a tickin’!

  • Garry

    Gee, Kate Ward, you mean you’re not as proud as I am that our Lindsay will be adding yet another stellar professional achievement to her long and impressive list?

    • stevenjaba

      Lindsay has “so few options”? She has a ton of options. If she cleaned up her act, she’d have tons of offers.

      • Cate

        Right! “So few options” that pay $1m, maybe, and keep her and her mother in the lifestyle to which they are accustomed, but “so few options” to take advantage of the publicity that she usually gets for anything she does, and to do something positive with that fame?

      • Santana

        Ikr! She does have other options. She could not pose for Playboy. She could go away for a little while. And she could have done her community service and probation. But she didn’t. Also, there isn’t anything “admirable” about how she has handled her drug addiction and the media over the last couple of years. And she’s rarely been honest. So I don’t know what that’s all about.

  • ok

    Next stop for lohan infomericials or porn.

    • kellade

      The morgue

      • Nah, you’re both wrong

        The church. And there’s nothing more I’d like to see than Lilo and KiCam together in the bosom of Jesus.

      • Osbored

        My bet is that her next stop will be the morgue. She’ll be the next 27 year old “icon” to die from her “addictions” and her family will live off of her licensing fees for the rest of their lives. Dina will act sad at first and then promptly push the younger sister into the media to ride Lindsay’s death publicity. Sad but probably true.

    • Jerry

      My money’s on porn.

      • Tye-Grr

        If someone records the necrophilia from the morgue.

      • Yina

        I dont mean to pick on you tiger… But if you are making dun of the chance of her dying then you are cruel. Look I made a joke about not wanting to see Lindsey naked but your comment is over e line. It’s never funny to joke about a young life ending. I am in no wat pro Lohan but I am pro humanity…. Come on

      • Yina

        Man I guess I got fired up sorry that my post was almost illegible thanks to those typos… I meant making Fun of (not dun of) over the line (not e line) and I am in no way (not wat) next time I’m on my iPhone I’ll still take a breath and look at what I type before sending… Sorry!

      • Sorry Yina

        your attempts at correcting your post don’t make you seem any more intelligent.

      • Blue in the face

        @sorryyina why be mean to someone for no reason? Someone made a typo geesh….

      • Yina

        Look I felt someone was out of line. I was typing quickly on my iPhone if that makes me look unintelligent to someone I’m not losing sleep over it. I noticed and corrected it instantly so it’s really not a big deal. At the end of the day I can spell check and it’s still not funny to make fun of anyone dying.

      • Shut up Yina

        or we’ll focus our death wish rays on YOU.

      • Yeah Yina

        why you gotta spoil it for everybody else Yina, mind ur own bidness.

      • Yina

        Wow, you have some serious issues. I feel worse for you than for the washed up celeb forced to do playboy…. WOW.

      • Yina

        Also telling someone to mind their “bidness” on a public forum doesn’t really do wonders for the image of your intelligence. If you would like to have a private conversation with only like minded people EW probably isn’t the place. Your multiple screen names based my screen name sure are witty though… Not quiet as funny about joking about a young addicts possible death though… Look you can post all the hate you want at me I’m going to ignore it. While first reminding you that jokes about. Young girl dying are tasteless.

    • Strepsi

      Agreed, and then DINA LOHAN will be trying to convince us that Lindsay should be winning an Academy Award for internet squirt videos.

    • Santana

      Hasn’t she already done an infomercial or two?

      • Elizabeth

        I think she did some for Proactiv.

    • jen

      she’s gotta pay for that crack habit somehow…

  • GetNakedLindsay

    It is a little sad.. But what easier way could this “actress” make 1 million..? Plus, lets face it, she’s pretty damn hot. I’d buy a Playboy to see if she’s as hot as it appears.

    • SS

      She’s not hot anymore. Nice boobs and proportionate body alone does not make someone hot.. she’s tragic. Her face and teeth are all messed up, she’s saving her long hippie hair in an effort to attract men, and she’s paler than a ghost. Not to mention the druggie, dead-behind-the-eyes thing.
      Not hot.

      • ll

        I would buy it JUST to see her naked….she’s a trainwreck and people will buy it to see how good or bad she looks. sounds like a win win.

      • forrest

        the great thing about a photoshoot: air brushing – you’re not going to see the real LL, just an artist’s rendering of a photo. No freckles, no blemishes, ‘art’ for ‘art’s’ sake.

      • Michael

        I agree. She is too desperate for money and attention, that no one is interested in her posing nude. Lindsay is not sexy, and is not vulnerable. She is nothing, but a uncaring jerk. I’d say within the next few years she’ll probably be dead, becasue everyone will have given up on her, and she’ll drink and drug her life away.

      • daniele

        Playboy is expert at airbrushing, airbrush tanning, lighting, make up, angles, etc. She’s gonna look great. And she made a million dollars in 48 hours.

    • Herman

      If she weren’t a junkie,gained a few pounds, got her teeth fixed, and became a redhead or brunette again, I’d be looking foward to seeing this. Now, it’s like “so what?”

  • markinnyc

    I would say inevitable more then sad.

    • Garry

      It’s both inevitable AND sad. And yet I laugh.

    • allan

      I’m sure that hag of a mother/manager put this together for her. It’s a lot of money and considering that she’s probably blown through (literally) a good deal of her wealth her mother must be desperate to keep her meal ticket marketable. Otherwise, mother may be actually be forced to get, like, a JOB! But it is sad because it’s a yet another sign of being on your way down in the industry. And yes, it will keep the photoshopper very busy with the too thin face, the stained teeth, the crackpipe stained fingers and the urine yellow hair.

      • Mike

        I guess she got the bill from her personal bail bondsman and forgot how much she’s spent on bail in the past year. I’m surprised Dina isn’t trying to get a photo spread herself.

  • GeeMoney

    Hey, I’d do Playboy too… if I needed the bail money!

  • Brenda

    “Someone with so few options”???? Are you nuts? This girl had the world at her fingertips and blew it (literally). I don’t feel sorry for her, and I’m not at all surprised by this news.

    • Mell

      couldn’t agree more

    • Jackson

      agreed. i can’t feel sorry for someone who wasted such enormous talent. all she had to do for like the last seven years was work a few weeks a year, show up to work on time, and show up sober. and she refused to even do that.

      • sorella

        I read that like and thought WTH too!! This writer is way too soft on her and her lack of accountablity and responsiblity (when did LL admit to taking drugs?? She always blames others!!). I am not sad, she has had way too many chances. Maybe Kate Ward should realise that it’s people like her and her family who make excusesa and enable her that are a huge part of her problems.

      • Ana170

        She’s a drug addict. They don’t always do what makes sense to everyone else. Also, she never had the world at her fingertips. She had money and fame and a completely screwed up home life. I’m still pulling for her. If Robert Downey Jr. could get his act together after decades of drug abuse, hopefully she can do the same.

      • Jackson

        drug addiction is a serious problem indeed. but i have to agree with sorella. LL has an accountability and responsibility problem. i feel bad for addicts when they acknowledge that they have a problem, seek out help and try to get better, but continue to struggle with their problem as can happen. but LL has always and continues to blame everything and everyone but herself. she’s an adult now. she’s gotta take responsibility for her actions, including her addictions.

      • daniele

        It’s easy to judge when you haven’t been there. Lindsey has been working since she was baby and most likely became burned out of the industry. A performer needs challenges to stay focused and driven.

    • slackerj

      Agreed, ten years ago I would have never thought I’d see Lindsay munsoned and posing for playboy. sad indeed

    • stevenjaba

      Agree completely. She has tons of options now too. If she cleaned up her act, then took baby steps to re-prove herself, she’d have people clamoring to hire her.

    • Jack

      Why do people keep saying she had so much talent!? Since when? Lindsay’s never been a good actress — she was just good on screen in comparison to what she did off screen.
      She hasn’t shown promise since Parent Trap. Even Mean Girls and Freaky Friday were the same part. She sucks.

  • Alan

    Well, it would be nice to see her as a redhead again.

    • PhillyBoom

      “Like”

      • Beryl

        well not to mention they’re fucikng cartoon animations, so stop ******* over them saddoo? but it seems to be true, stupid ppl dont have sense of? humor

    • Hola

      Would the carpet match the drapes?? Just sayin…

  • ohnoudidnt

    That is gonna be 1 seiously airbrushed issue if she does do it. She looks like Dontella Versace.

  • KCWolf

    File under: I think I just threw up in my mouth a little bit. Actually, if I want to see drug-addled naked skanks with no talent (which I can assure you I don’t) I’ll head downtown with a $20 bill.

    • o0

      hilarous lol

    • markinnyc

      downtown is a little vauge….address please?

    • andrea

      Nice lol

  • Dan

    i already saw her nude in Machete

    • Snsetblaze

      That was the movie I was thinking of.

    • Blue in the face

      And she’s flashed her crotch a few times.

  • ns

    How else can she make this kind of money? Her “lifestyle” is an expensive one.
    She’s a clueless joke who isn’t worth your pity or anyone else’s.

    • Malak

      They’re really ppluoar in Pennsylvania where we like to vacation part of the primitive decor along with other seemingly pointless items that end up looking great and creating that homey feel you elude to. So just for show I suppose. Kind of like someone wearing a neckless or a bracket.

  • fbdbpw

    Didnt she already get naked in machete? Or was that a double?

  • Not a fan, but…….

    I just can’t muster up much sympathy for this girl. I think she’s emotionally exhausted the planet. She will be used and exploited by the media (and use it in return) until she winds up dead. Then everyone will ACT all sorry and shocked about it. She is basically a spoiled brat. And while I think her parents are right up there on the list of WORST PARENTS, EVER!, at some point she needs to take responsibility for her own life. Or not. The Playboy spread doesn’t surprise me at all. I’m sure she needs the money as well as the attention.
