The troubled actress – who was last week told she had to clean morgues for 16 hours a week as part of a court order until a probation hearing on November 2 – will reportedly earn almost $1 million for baring all in the adult magazine.
According to TMZ.com, the 25-year-old star originally turned down a $750,000 offer from Playboy boss Hugh Hefner to pose nude, demanding that the figure should be closer to $1 million.
It is believed the shoot started over the weekend, with Lindsay – who could face up to 18 months in prison if she is found guilty of violating the terms of her probation for a 2007 DUI (driving under the influence) conviction – having to fit it in around her court-ordered morgue duties.
However, this isn’t the first time the star has posed naked.
In 2008, the ‘Mean Girls’ actress stripped off to recreate the infamous ‘Last Sitting’ shots of Marilyn Monroe, taken by photographer Bert Stern just six weeks before she died of a drugs overdose, with Lindsay admitting at the time she was “comfortable” with nudity.
She said: “I didn’t have to put much thought into it. Working with Bert Stern on a Marilyn Monroe shoot was really an honour. When is that ever going to come up again?
“I wanted to portray the look and get it point-on as much as I could, to bring it back to life. I was comfortable with it, the nudity and everything.”
