Lindsay Lohan surprised the world (of Opposite Land) today when it was announced that she has struck a deal with Playboy to appear naked within its pages. Though inevitable, this was expected to have happened five years ago. Back then, the attention might have helped her repair her career. Now it just seems like a desperate cash grab to cover legal fees and her excessive lifestyle.
Obviously, she’s not the only one to take it all off in the hopes of gaining notoriety (it’s actually how Playboy has managed to keep it going all these years), nor is she the only one to wait too long. Here are seven other actresses who decided to pose for Playboy far too late into their attractiveness. Lindsay Lohan, this is your future.
Teri Polo made the weird decision to parlay her Meet the Parents fame into a spread in Playboy. She was 36 years old at the time, which means she was about eighteen years late. This move didn’t really propel her into more stardom as her subsequent roles have mainly been guest appearances on CSI: Miami and The Ghost Whisperer.
Lisa Rinna decided to return to familiar surroundings after Dancing With the Stars made her relevant again. She originally posed for Playboy while pregnant (gee… thanks, Lisa) when her stint on Melrose Place came to an end. Then again in 2006 at the age of 46 (gee… thanks, Lisa).
