Lindsay Lohan Says Posing Nekkid Gave Her Confidence


It’s been a week of ups and downs for Lindsay Lohan and Playboy magazine … ups for Lindsay because she is, once again, the center of attention … downs for Playboy because L. Lo’s entire pictorial photospread leaked early to the Internets (and they stand to lose financially due to the leak). Now that Lindsay’s entire appearance in Playboy is freely and readily available online, let’s look to her coverstory interview to find out what she thinks about posing nude for the mag. According to Linds, posing nekkid for Playboy was the BEST. Thing. Ever. Click below to read some excerpts.

Is Lindsay Lohan’s nude, Marilyn Monroe-inspired pictorial in Playboy a desperate ploy for attention from a trouble-plagued star? Not so, the 25-year-old actress tells the men’s magazine, in just-released quotes from her interview … “Sex and sexuality are a part of nature, and I go along with nature,” the Mean Girls star says of her in-the-buff photos, which are an homage to the late Monroe’s own iconic Playboy spread. “Knowing yourself and your body is so important because it gives you confidence, and in life, women need confidence.” In the leaked pics, Lohan wears just a pair of a pumps, with her blonde locks in retro-style waves and with her lips a bright shade of vampy red. “It’s a very male-dominated world to begin with, so knowing yourself and being comfortable with your body is an important thing for me as a woman. Everyone is entitled to their opinion, but this is mine.” The former Disney cutiepie, of course, hasn’t had the most confidence-building several years, as her movie roles dried up and she ran into frequent troubles with the law over her partying, her drug and alcohol abuse, a related DUI, subsequent probation violations, even the theft of an expensive necklace. But, looking forward, she says she’s learned from those transgressions. “Ultimately we are each responsible for ourselves and for our actions,” says the star, who has dodged long-term jail sentences more than once. “Looking back, I probably would have listened to and taken more advice from the people whom I admire and would have followed through with it more.” How did the real trouble begin? Muses Lohan: “My stubbornness at 18 and 19 years old got in the way. During the past five years, I’ve learned that time flies faster than you think, and because you only live once you have to learn from your mistakes, live your dreams and be accountable.”

Hmmm. Reading these interview questions … yeah, I’m having a really hard time envisioning these words coming out of Lindsay’s mouth. Not only are her comments exceedingly mature and well-thought out … but the language seems … advanced. In regards to her claims of finding “empowerment” and “confidence” from posing nude in Playboy magazine, well, that’s the same answer that almost every nude model gives when she decides to bare all for the mag. I’m not saying that the claim is disingenuous … but when you hear the same thing over and over and over again … well, it tends to sound less and less genuine. In regards to Lindsay’s sudden realization of responsibility, well, I’d love to believe that what she says is true. I simply cannot take her at her word … not yet. While I understand that she has been doing very well with her probation requirements, I find it very difficult to believe that she has had a sudden about face and just NOW realizes the err of her ways. I doubt that posing for Playboy is as life-changing as these interview commments make it seem but … well, let’s just see, shall we?

    It’s great she knows herself and her body, but I wonder how she feels about the body that’s actually in the mag..We all know, with all of that Photoshop, that it isn’t hers!

    This is so weird, but I always wonder what Tina Fey thinks about Lindsay. Do they talk? She did choose her for Mean Girls. Is that dumb?

    • bleeding ears

      I think that too : )

  • bleeding ears

    Would she feel the same without the 1 million dollar payday?

  • ClaireMichelle

    I love that she is still referred to as “the Mean Girls star” because she hasn’t done anything worthwhile since then… Hot mess.

  • Sherri

    am i the only crazy one here? she looks nothing like herself! i finally just checked out the cover and i was like, um, it doesn’t look like her at all.

  • Chase

    She’ll never have her career back. She will forever be a d-lister.

    • I think you’re TOTALLY wrong. Her career is in the crapper right now. That’s for sure. But stranger things have happened. Nicole Scherzinger leaving a successful group thinking she could make it as a solo artist, people thinking Madonna would apologize after being given flowers that she can’t stand. Come on!

  • Claire

    So not only has she completely (badly) ripped off Marilyn’s look, she’s also stealing her quotes? I hate this woman!

    “Sex is part of nature. I go along with nature.”
    ― Marilyn Monroe

    She seems desperate to make more of this than it really is…nude pictures…this isn’t world changing art.

  • swile71

    I NEVER take a word that comes out her mouth seriously. She has claimed to have learned from her MANY, MANY mistakes before yet she continues to make more. She will just have to prove to the world that she can straighten up, but I am not holding my breath.

  • manuela
