Lindsay Lohan’s nude photo shoot for Playboy Magazine is helping Hugh Hefner‘s magazine break sales records.
Lohan was reportedly paid $1 million to pose nude for the photos, which were taken reminiscent of the style Marilyn Monroe posed in during the debut issue of Playboy in 1953.
It’s been reported that Marilyn Monroe was only paid $50 for the 1949 photo shoot.
“The Lindsay Lohan January-February Double Issue is breaking sales records,” Hefner said in a message posted on his Twitter account Sunday.
A Playboy spokesman would not give sales numbers, but the official did say it was selling “very well.”
The Playboy gig was a rare moneymaking opportunity for Lohan, whose acting career has been hampered in the past two years by frequent trips to court, probation restrictions, extended drug rehab stints and several visits to jail.
To be honest, I’m a little surprised it sold so well. Even after the pictures leaked online, I’m surprised people went out and bought the issue. Is it because people think she’s going to have the same fate as Marilyn?
