Actress and punchline Lindsay Lohan is getting a cool one million dollars to go from SFW photos to NSFW photos. The infamously embattled child star-turned-adult with numerous public legal and substance abuse issues is reportedly do a photo shoot for the famous adult men’s magazine Playboy.

Numerous outlets are reporting it, despite Lohan’s publicist neither confirming nor denying.

Here’s a snippet from MSNBC:

First, this whole agreement, should it become a reality, doesn’t come as a total surprise.

Lohan is not the most modest of celebs — we’ve seen A LOT of her skin as it is. The forum is just different here. There’s also the Marilyn Monroe emulation syndrome at play — Lohan has repeatedly aligned herself with the icon (and former Playboy model, herself). Her company 6126 is named for Monroe’s birth date, and remember when Lohan recreated Monroe’s last nude photo shoot for New York magazine?

Very true. If you want to see Lohan topless, you can always go to that NY Mag shoot mentioned/linked above. So the Playboy shoot won’t go all that much further than what she has already done. And a million bucks just to get naked on camera? How many of us would turn that down? It’s not like Lohan has a squeaky clean image to protect- most people regard her to be a train wreck.

Of course, doing the Playboy is kind of what you do when either a.) you’ve accepted your legitimate mainstream career is long over and you want to get paid or b.) you’re obscure and looking to get noticed

So, Lohan is obviously in category a. and is aware that she’s not going to be a headliner, and certainly not doing any more movies produced by Disney anymore. All of her public lunacy will keep her from being the front line star she once was, so why not embrace where you are in life and get some scrilla?

There is one eerie, macabre element to all the Marilyn Monroe emulation/role modeling. Monroe had substance abuse issues, and died early. Lohan can list severe substance abuse among her many personal issues, and given all her self-destructive tendencies, is she likely to leave us very early in life like Monroe did?
