Norwich, United Kingdom (PressExposure) September 10, 2009 -- It's said that the star turned down the $500,000 that was originally offered, but now the offer has increased she is considering posing for the centrefold. Does she really need the money? Lindsay is known for her rock and roll lifestyle, and maybe this is taking its toll on her bank balance. She's had huge spending problems in the past, and has been in rehab a number of times to help her kick drinking and drug habits.
If she was to take up the offer from Playboy, it wouldn't be her first time modelling naked. Back in 2008, Lindsay worked with photographer Bert Stern to recreate photos of Marilyn Monroe's famous 'Last Sitting' photoshoot for New York Magazine.
There are parallels between the two women's lives, but Lindsay must be hoping she doesn't meet the same fate as the 50s icon. Fortunately, she seems to be well aware of the potential bad influence of the entertainment industry, referring to the late Heath Ledger as an example. Despite the problems she's had with drink and drugs, Lohan insists that she's not heading in the same direction.
She is known to be a huge fan of Marilyn Monroe and even owns an apartment that she stayed in. There was no question about whether she would model for Stern when asked. "I didn't have to put much thought into it," she says. "I mean, Bert Stern? Doing a Marilyn shoot? When is that ever going to come up? It's really an honor." However, it seems she is more cautious about modelling for Playboy.
Lindsay is currently working on three films that are in various stages of production, so surely she can't be that desperate for the money. Whether she decides to model for the magazine or not, let's hope that the decision is hers, and that she doesn't feel pressured into taking her clothes off.
