The August issue of Italian Vanity Fair, which hits stands today, is graced by America’s favorite camera-loving, necklace stealing, hard-partying trainwreck, Lindsay Lohan. The magazine features an exclusive interview with the jailbird, as well as a super tacky photo spread.
The photos were taken at Lohan’s California home last month while she was still under house arrest. We think it’s safe to say Lindsay has been the most productive person under house arrest ever — she did the VF shoot, filmed a penny auction ad, and scored a role in the new Gotti family biopic with John Travolta.
The Vanity Fair photos are pretty awful. Lindsay looks really old, her hair is overly dyed and she’s kind of channelling the Gotti role she’s slated to play. Maybe its just the lighting in her house?
Lohan dishes to the magazine about wanting to go back to acting, hating being locked up and not being guilty. “Unless you’re a killer, I don’t see a reason to stay there,” Lohan said of prison. “I never hurt anyone but myself.” She also mentioned she keeps a gun in her house to fend off intruders.
Our question is for Italian Vanity Fair — wasn’t it rumored that Lindsay would be covering the September issue of the magazine’s American counterpart? And didn’t they say her hair would be peroxide blond and the spread would be shot in her own home because she was under house arrest? Maybe we were wrong, and Lohan was supposed to front the Italian issue all along. We just can’t see Graydon Carter playing second fiddle to, well, anyone. But maybe magazines don’t really talk with their international sisters. UK Vogue put rumored US Vogue cover girl Kate Moss on their August issue, after all.
We’re also really curious as to what makes Lohan so hot to book these days. Her acting career has been at a standstill for years (her last real hit was 2006’s A Prairie Home Companion) , and since her last Vanity Fair spread, only ten months ago, the only pictures of her in the glossies have only been from court dates or mug shots.
So we’ll see in a few short weeks whether the rumors are true and Italian Vanity Fair‘s shoot is in fact a preview of the September issue of it’s American affiliate. We’re hoping not because these photos do not impress, but mostly because we’re kind of over Lohan.
this is some kind of spaceship or something.
