This is how far Lindsay Lohan has fallen, in her own words: Six years ago, she said she would never pose nude. Now, she plans to do exactly that for Playboy magazine.
Lohan, the troubled 25-year-old actress, will reportedly earn approximately $1 million for the shoot.
But just six years ago, Access Hollywood asked the then-19-year-old actress if she would ever bare all in a film in her career, and the response was quite different than the imagined one recently when she was asked, Hey, want to pose nude for Playboy?
You'll never see me in a nude scene, Lohan said.
Never? interviewer Billy Bush responded.
I'm not going to do a nude scene, Lohan said. Then there's no mystery for my private life.
Of course, reports all over the place indicate that Lohan is set to now pose nude for Playboy. And though, of course, that's different than a nude scene in a movie. But the way Lohan scoffed at the film possibility suggested she would probably carry it over to other platforms, as well.
I think there's a way for those kinds of things to be tastefully done and you don't need to show that, and I don't think that's what is needed to win someone an Oscar, she continued. For me, personally... I think there are other things you can do to show people that you have talent.
Lohan is currently on probation, and last week she cleaned morgues for 16 hours.
According to TMZ, Playboy approached Lohan with a $750,000 offer, which she declined. She asked for $1 million, and the magazine agreed to a number near her asking price.
According to E!, Lohan's photo session, in a Beverly Hills mansion, is already in progress.
Also, of course, that 2005 interview was promoting Herbie: Fully Loaded, which was a family movie and all.
