LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – Lindsay Lohan Playboy photos will earn the actress one million dollars. Lindsay Lohan’s Playboy pictures will be for the January 2012 issue released in December. Lohan friend Kim Kardashian also once posed Playboy pics for a December holiday released issue. But will Lohan be clothed? News reports are conflicting today.
Initial news reports claim that Lindsay Lohan will be paid $1 million to appear unclothed for the January issue. But conflicting news reports claim that Lohan will appear clothed. Lohan, however, will undergo shooting for the Playboy pics today, claims reports.
The timing of the deal is peculiar. Lohan’s longtime manager Lou Taylor has released resigned. Lohan’s publicist, Steve Honing, said the Taylor-Lohan split was amiable.
If Lohan did ink the Playboy deal, this will mark one of two lucrative deals in just weeks. German designer Philipp Plein is paying Lohan $500,000 to represent his line. Lohan reportedly was offered $750,000 to pose for Playboy. The actress demanded $1 million and reportedly got the paycheck. (Update 12/9 the photos have been released.)
What could be the theme of Lohan’s shoot? LALATE expects that a Marilyn Monroe theme is anticipated. Often dubbed MonroLo, Lohan has done Marilyn spreads for the New Yorker Magazine in 2008 and then for the 2009 Spanish Vogue issue. In Susan Bernard’s book Marilyn: Intimate Exposures, Lohan explained why she associates with Marilyn.
Lohan told news “Marilyn was the beautiful bad girl in that tight, rose-colored dress. The character she played was strong and taking control, which I unconsciously knew at that young age  was a necessary quality for a woman.”
Lohan added “People in their mind have created who I am and act as if there is no real person inside of me. Just like Marilyn.”
Lohan says she doesn’t want to be a celebrity. “Marilyn never wanted to be just a celebrity. Neither do I… I had always thought that movie stars were in films that would last forever in your mind.”
She adds “But now the films don’t. I don’t want to be remembered as someone who just wanted to be photographed, who goes out at night, and gets in trouble.”
