Lindsay Lohan to go nude in indie movie to prove she's a 'serious actress'
Stripping off: Lindsay Lohan, in LA yesterday, is reportedly planning to go nude in her next film
Troubled Hollywood starlet Lindsay Lohan is planning to appear naked in an low-budget film in an effort to revive her flailing career, it has been claimed.
The actress is said to have agreed to strip down for just £40,000 for the indie film Florence to prove herself as a "mature actress".
The 21-year-old, who previously played a pole dancer in the box-office flop I Know Who Killed Me, has reportedly agreed to "full frontal" nudity in her role as a nymphomaniac waitress in the drama.
An insider told The Sun: “Lindsay doesn't care she's getting paid peanuts. She wants to remind people she can act and that she is worth hiring.”
Another source added: “She is fully aware of the potential of her body. Lindsay wants to build up an image as a mature, responsible actress.”
The actress is no stranger to stripping down - she posed nude for New York magazine in March in a recreation of Marilyn Monroe's legendary 1962 shoot by Bert Stern.
Lindsay has previously spoken about her struggle to find quality acting roles following a difficult year which included yet another stint in rehab.
She said last month: "Right now I just want to find a great script, a great role.
"I was so used to working and working and working, and for a good few months there was nothing for me to do. Now I know what it's like to be an out-of-work actor, and how much it scares me."
The actress is also working a new album and she's hoping for big chart success.
In terms of sound, she says: "I want it to be kind of Kylie Minogue-meets-Rihanna. I hope to tour with it and I hope to really promote it."
