Should Playboy Have Paid Lindsay Lohan A Million Bucks?

When Pop Blend first reported on Lindsay Lohan’s possible appearance in Playboy, it was very much a rumor. Seeing as how her publicist is still refusing to confirm, I suppose it’s still technically as much, but a lot has changed since yesterday evening. Numerous outlets are now citing their own unnamed sources as verification the actress is getting nude for the men’s magazine. With legal bills to pay and big roles not exactly jamming her inbox, I suppose her agreement isn’t a surprise, but the dollar amount is still pretty impressive.
According to TMZ, the actress is set to make a little under a million dollars for the pictures. She was reportedly offered three quarters of a million a few months ago but held out for more money. Apparently, the ploy worked because the offer was upped, and she’s set to make a hell of a lot of money for very little work. Of course, it’s not exactly the work she’s getting paid for.
Lohan said numerous times she’d never take a role that required nudity. In fact, she used a body double for her nude scene in Machete, but I suppose people’s viewpoints, or at least circumstances, change over the years. A million dollars might seem like a lot of money, but one could argue she likely would have made even more had she decided to pose right after Mean Girls.
Still, the past is the past, and right now, she’s apparently worth a million dollars. But did Playboy pay too much? If you were Hugh Hefner, would you shell out that kind of money? Sound off by voting in the poll below…
