Lindsay Lohan Nude Photo Shoot

Naked Lindsay Lohan is New York Mag's Money Maker

Lindsay Lohan caused a bit of commotion last week when she appeared in New York Magazine. Her nude spread, that recreated the famous final photo shoot of Marilyn Monroe, drew millions of curious visitors who briefly crashed the site on the day the photos were published. We all know that celebs are usually paid major dollars for exclusive shoots with publications, but do you know how much LL was paid for the "honor" of channeling her idol? To find out just

Nada. Zip. Photographer Ben Stern was paid his usual fee but LL did the shoot for free. The magazine's site averages one million page views per day, but the photo shoot alone brought in 34 million views during the two days after the spread was revealed. And while the magazine keeps advertising revenue numbers to themselves, it's estimated that they made over $500,000 in two days from the banner ads running above the LL slideshow. NY mag sure knows how to shake the most out of their money maker — they strategically posted outtakes from the shoot on their site yesterday.

I can't stand this girl...she's nowhere near as talented and classy as Marilyn.

The originals are so much better but that is usually the case for everything that gets re-done.

She's no Marilyn, that's for sure. Wish she would focus on her acting instead.

I really don't believe that she didn't any money for this. I'm sure she did get paid and they don't want to create more controversy by disclosing the amount.

For what reason I have no idea, she looks like a 14 year old boy. There is nothing to her at all. And to pose as Marilyn you've got to be kidding me ...

I think this was a good move by New York, they were the money makers. Lindsay got 0. But my opinion about the pictures is that the girl just doesn't have the curves for those shots. Her waist just isn't the same at Marylin's. I would have rather of seen Scarlet do the shot.

:BARF: she doesn't do Marilyn justice. She's annoying and talentless. :OY:

Honestly, I wasn't impressed at all. I looked up the original Marilyn Monroe pictures from that photo shoot and it looks completely different from this "remake". Lindsay just doesn't have that subtle charisma of Marilyn, and IMO doesn't deserve to be compared to her. BUT, this community already attacked that (, so I'll just say that I guess LL wasn't the only one who took advantage of this "opportunity" -- that is quite an amazing sum to earn from advertising over such a short time.
