With Lindsay Lohan‘s new Playboy magazine issue selling through the roof (… or is it?), Hugh Hefner has decided to go on the record and say that this is the moment where Lindsay’s career will finally turn around, because apparently showing your boobs for like fifth time somehow translates into coveted movie roles. I don’t know, just go with it I guess? People reports:
“I had mixed emotions to begin with,” he said. “I could not have anticipated, quite frankly, that it would turn out to be such a sensational newsworthy event, or that the pictorial would turn out so well.” Oddly enough, the two have never crossed paths – even at the photo shoot. Even so, Hefner, who says Lohan, 25, is “carrying around some serious luggage,” hopes the Playboy opportunity is a step in the right direction. “Historically, Playboy pictorials are connected to celebrities at various times in their career,” Hefner says. “Sometimes it’s the beginning of their career and sometimes it comes at a particular moment – as with Lindsay – that is intended as a turnaround.”
I love how Hef thinks that this is Lindsay’s big “phoenix from the ashes” moment, as if her problem all along is that we weren’t seeing her boobs enough. LiLo’s problem is that she’s become massively unreliable, and audiences simply don’t want to see her any more. The fact that she has no work ethic, spends all her time partying herself to the point of collapse, and sucks at acting is all just icing on the failure cake, really.
