Lindsay Lohan -- I'm NOT Doing a Sex Book!

3/2/2011 8:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Lindsay Lohan is blasting reports that she's agreed to strip down to her birthday suit for a full-frontal photo spread in a "sex book" ... calling the whole idea "gross."

0301_LINDSAY_LOHAN_EX_HOLLYWOD

TMZ has learned ... Lohan is telling friends she would "never do a sex book" ... despite reports that she signed a multi-million dollar deal to pose with James Franco in a series of "graphic" photos for a Madonna-esque book with photographer Terry Richardson.

However, we've learned Lohan HAS agreed to a milder photo shoot with Richardson ... in a book about the "glamor and history" of Hollywood.

No word if Franco is involved in that shoot ... but it's probably a better career move than hosting the Oscars.

I get your point re: X factor but if true, how come Lilty's unable to profit off this X factor in her chosen profession like the others you mentioned? Madonna has sold records for a long time and most did quite well. Same thing for MJ and his music, or Nicklson (sp?) and his movies. Litly's last few movies FLOPPED. While true, she generates a buzz (of people hating her for inability to conceal her narcissim in the courtroom), it's internet buzzing only. I doubt she has the looks or acting chops anymore to rebound in films. Bit parts here and there, but a lead in a decent movie that's actually released in theaters? Doubtful.

Delmar, bootsy makes a lot of good points here. First off, Lindsay's looks are fast fading, even with intense amounts of makeup. Maybe, possibly, the damage is reversible if she'd get herself into treatment and STAY there but I don't know. Very seriously, she looks like the before and after crack mugshots. And she's only 24! In the prime of her life. And the window for actresses is short. Yes, she's still young and has time but she's got so much going against her - fast fading looks, major time away from the filming studios, so much negative publicity AND serious criminal charges.

Secondly, as bootsy pointed out, her latest movies FLOPPED. One only made about $500K. This is probably her worst crime of all by Hollywood standards.

Third, she looked horrible in Machete and Georgia Rules - like a porn star. Just horrible. And her acting was poor in both movies too. Like she was phoning in the role. And this was BEFORE the shiz storm hit. So what was her excuse? Drugs, probably. But you can't keep a movie career afloat if you look horrible and refuse to prepare for the role and do a good job on set.

Truthfully, Delmar, the ONE thing that really and truly is keeping Lindsay away from succeeding in movies...is herself. SHE has decided to concentrate on a life of crime and a life away from movie making. If she were to honestly decide to devote herself to rebuilding her health, her life and her career, she might be able to. But she hasn't. It isn't me or Grandma Crackers or TMZ or the jewelery store owner or Danette Meyers or anyone else who is keeping Lindsay from reaching her own potential...it's herself.

Just how does she expect to kick start her career without an agent? (not like she'll need one in prison)

Youth is apparent for only a short amount of time. Lindsay has totally lost her youth, and this is why actresses her age are more beautiful. They look young, they look fresh, and they sell.

It's a fact that Lindsay just doesn't look "fresh" anymore. She's bleached her freckles, dyed her hair very blond, had her lips plumped up, and looks like a 35-year-old whore instead of a young, vibrant 24-year-old girl.

She should have kept her youth with her red hair and freckles, unplumped her lips, and whatever else she did to her body (breast implants), and gone with the flow of her age. Instead, she metamorphosed into what she wants to be instead of who she is.

She totally fu@ked herself up.

I don't think spinning Lohan's scofflaw ways as X Factor is going to work.

To put her name in a list with Cher, Nicholson, Jagger is preposterous. Those are artists who creatively expressed societal zietgiest at pivitoal time in social history.

Unlike them she has had no sustained creative success of any kind as an adult. She's famous for being a tabloid party girl and the longest probation violation in history. If she's got a zietgiest moment it's as an example of how empty tabloid/reality fame is without actual acheivement. If you want to argue that she's special in that way, that she's so talented she's worth the hassle, then you'll have to come up with an example of it paying off creatively? Nada.

She has been clinging to some talk of her promise for most of the last decade. You can make an alternative argument that she was at her most successful under the rules and regs of the Disney years.

She is an object lesson of a career as tabloid fodder. The only way she can continue with it, unfortunately is with more problems. Getting it together is not a story and why should it be?

"Her performances create buzz. There was a bit of it in Machete where she had a tiny part."


Don't agree with that, thought she came across as very porno-ish in Machete.


"But, it's becoming a memory. She creates buzz on photoshoots. I think she overly relies on them but photographers say she's amazing and has a unique energy and presence that others just don't have. She was notorious for making them wait for hours, like 8 or more hours she'd arrive late."

Will agree with you that she can catch one's eye when modeling. She knows how to be provocative and run with it, creating a very interesting final product. But I also think that she's seriously diminished her marketability in this field as well, due to her diminished looks. Maybe she could model for a certain segment of people - people who are fascinated with death or Goths or something very extreme. People who seriously think they are vampires. That sort of segment of society.


"So, to answer your question, it's sustained work effort and focus. She'll get through photo shoots but movies, CD recordings take months of commitment and she hasn't shown in the past years that she's capable of that."

Her rage gets in her way. That is one seriously MEGA angry young lady. And Delmar - I don't blame her for that part of the equation. She had a shihtty home life with two very crazy, self-absorbed parents who used her. But she has just sank into the same sort of life that they live.


"Personally, I believe in her and hope that she can build it back up. She had it at one point. But I think she needs to do this later. Not now. She's still learning about herself, in recovery. But it's the psychotherapy part that interests me more and I think where she needs to do her most work."

Well, we are in complete agreement, Delmar! Surprise! :-D I think she needs to take her lumps for her illegal activity and then go into psychotherapy for years. I think her life COULD be amazing if she'd invest the time and effort into really working on getting well through therapy. Big "if."

the loserhans are having to work overtime to get their names in the news. they are sooo pizzed off at that damn charlie peen. how dare he steal all the headlines???

I'm of two minds regarding Charlie Peen. On the one hand, I feel sorry for him because I really do believe that his mania is organically based - bipolar disorder - and that he's completely nuts.

On the other hand, it INFURIATES me that he beats and threatens to kill women and then DENIES it...and also has his twin sons living in his cracked out porn den.

I hope someone carts him away soon for serious medical intervention and TAKES THOSE BABIES AWAY FROM THAT CRACKHEAD.

@Lou Yep, Lindsay's responsible for where she is in life. Is this the cycle where she starts to rise? Hard to say. She may go to jail for awhile. Her drug tests say she's sober and she's toned her lifestyle down a bit. She has a long way to go but maybe this is the best she can do at this time. We can only stay tuned to see if this time is the beginning of a turnaround. But if it isn't, she's not ready, and she'll stay down until she does turn it around. If she does. No one knows if she can or not.

Per her appearance. She looks different than she used to. Most complaints about her looks focus on lip injections but her skin has improved dramatically from late 2009 where it was very, very damaged and she is no longer scary skinny and her body is looking toned where it hasn't in the past years. Some people think she's still beautiful, some people think she's haggard and there's everything in between. Your mileage may vary. But, lots of women in their 30s and 40s are getting great roles and she's 24, so she has plenty of time. But each day, month, year she's not working she's losing more time.

@john smith

You stated:
Lindsay received 665 comments from her fans yesterday on TMZ today maybe another 600 or 700 comments. You know the part in the song The Twelve Days Of Christmas" where they go up a scale in tone for the "five golden rings", Here we go everyone sing it with me...." SIX HUNDRED LINDSAY FANS"


Just as an FYI. Of the first 200 posts from yesterdays article, there were 22 distinct posters who were "pro-Lindsay" and there were 127 distinct posters who were "con-Lindsay".

I think you better change your song to 22 Lindsay fans... Just sayin'

CAA dropped her no one will hire her, even Blohan said it

----

A part of her, the part who used to be an actress, must be freaking the feck out by now with being dropped by her agency and being uninsurable. Those are the kiss of death to an actresses' career. There IS no career without a big, reputable agency behind you to line up your gigs or the ability to be insured. No matter WHAT drivel Dina Blowhorn toots, Lindsay must know, deep down, that her career is in SERIOUS trouble at this point. She may now have jeopardized her career to the point of no return.

You really have to wonder what the physiological profile is of these same old haters that come here everyday and say the same old stories. Clearly they are cyber bullies but my guess is that you are all addicts of one kind or another. It is the mirror thing where by when you are criticizing Lilo weakness it is really your own weakness you are criticizing.
THis for FUTMZ, Grama crakers, davey boy rose 59?? etc. You are all s**** haters.

normal person    

Most all hateful comments are from the same 10 haters that are here every day hunting for Lilo threads to spew their hatred. Just remember that all the post are always from the same group of haters. Lilo does not have 600 haters more like 10 haters that post numerous post. Davey Boy is also an admitted Charlie Sheen fan. What a bunch of hypocrites.

If Lindsay doesn't like the feedback she gets from stories she sells to the tabs, then maybe she should stop selling them?

"Normal" "person:" Yawn. Get a dictionary. You'd be amazed at the breadth of scope there is to our language. For instance, instead of banging on the word "hater" for the next millennia, how about using something a bit more original? Misanthrope, for instance. And toss out "same" and replace it with something fresher: carbon-copy, clone, corresponding, duplicate, in the same manner, indistinguishable, interchangeable, likewise.

Children; they're always underfoot.

Ali - go to school. you say You really have to wonder what the physiological profile is of these same old haters that come here everyday and say the same old stories"
Physiological is pertaining to the functions of the body and anatomy, etc. I think you meant "psychological" which is the mental functionin.
