Lindsay Lohan Posing in Playboy; What Other Actresses Have Modeled for the Magazine?

Yahoo Contributor Network

Lindsay has had it rough lately. The former Disney darling was fired from her community service gig, and last time she was in the media for something other than her trouble with the law, it was to highlight her decaying teeth. Having had her smile fixed up and continuing her community service at a different location, Lohan once again appears to be trying to get her life back together.

So what is the "Mean Girls" star next career move? Posing nude for Playboy. The spread is also going to provide a big payday for the struggling actress, she'll reportedly receive a massive sum for showing off her goods.

What other actresses have posed for Playboy?

Kim Basinger

Although Kim went on to become an award winning actress, she wasn't well known when she bared all in Playboy. Appearing in the magazine was a way to advertise her status as a Bond girl in "Never Say Never Again." She went on to win an Academy Award and Golden Globe for her role in "L.A. Confidential." Most her recent media coverage, however, has been of her messy divorce and ugly custody battle with "30 Rock" star Alec Baldwin.

Denise Richards

Denise posed for the iconic magazine after she was a mom in 2004. When questioned about her reasons for choosing to do the shoot, she said "A couple reasons: I wanted to encourage women that it's OK to embrace your sexuality even though you're a mom. At the same time, I was having some problems in my marriage and I didn't feel sexy and felt I had to prove something." Richards is now the proud mom of three beautiful girls and will soon appear on the popular comedy series "30 Rock."

Shannen Doherty

One of T.V's most notorious "bad girls," Shannen has posed in Playboy multiple times. The "90210" star did two different lay-outs in the 1990s, and then came back 10 years later for more. Doherty recently got married (for the third time) to Kurt Iswarienko in Hawaii and has an upcoming reality series on WE.

Drew Barrymore

Drew has not only posed for Playboy, she's also spent time on the other side of the camera. She was the feature in a best-selling issue in 1995. The multi-talented star, who acts and directs, later switched roles at a party at the famous mansion. She grabbed a camera and took pictures of some of the "bunnies." Barrymore is reportedly wanting to settle down with boyfriend Will Kopelman; the adorable pair were recently photographed vacationing in Rome.

Marilyn Monroe

Easily the most remembered actress to ever grace the cover, Marilyn's photographs launched the magazine in 1953. Monroe posed for the scandalous photos at a low financial point in her career in 1949. While she only earned a small amount for the pictures, the images have become as iconic as the magazine itself.
