Do people really want to see Lindsay Lohan naked? Hugh Hefner says yes. The Playboy exec claims that the issue featuring LiLo is flying off the shelves and “breaking sales records.” Exactly what those records are, we don’t know, because Playboy has yet to provide any solid numbers.
Thankfully, CNN did a little digging for us, calling newsstands in Los Angeles, Chicago, New York, and Atlanta. According to its findings, only one of the many news outlets it contacted had actually sold all of their copies of the mag. Interesting.
Since it was Hugh who encouraged Lindsay to go nude, he must be pretty proud of himself. He revealed to E! that Lindsay’s team, including her mom, were “pushing for less nudity.” Yet he eventually convinced the starlet to bare it all by assuring her it would be done “in a very classy way... [that] will not be forgotten." Apparently, those were the magic words.
Whether or not the issue is quite as noteworthy as the Hef would have us believe, we’re glad to that Lindsay’s getting her act together. Who’d have thought Playboy would kick-start her comeback?
