New movie offers just keep coming in for Lindsay Lohan. Last month the 21-year-old accepted a part in the upcoming “Manson Girls,” where she’ll play one of Charles Manson’s devoted followers. Now The Sun reports LiLo’s agreed to shed her threads for a role in a low-budget film.
Set to play a “nymphomaniac waitress” in “Florence,” Lindsay purportedly countered the producers’ request for a topless sex scene with a “full frontal” offer. “She is fully aware of the potential of her body,” a Tinseltown pal insisted. “Lindsay wants to build up an image as a mature, responsible actress.”
The minor money that comes with the indie flick isn’t a turn-off for the “I Know Who Killed Me” star. “Lindsay doesn’t care she’s getting paid peanuts,” an insider told the paper. “She wants to remind people she can act and that she is worth hiring.”
If she does strip down in the film, that’ll make Lindsay’s second skintastic appearance this year. In February she paid homage to Marilyn Monroe in a fleshy photo shoot for New York Magazine.
Whitney’s BF taunts Bobby BJust after excerpts of Bobby Brown’s new scandal-packed autobiography, “Being Bobby Brown: The Whole Truth and Nothin’ But,” dropped, the New York Post reports Whitney Houston’s boytoy Ray J readies the release of a single aimed at Bobby’s bad hubby ways.
While Bobby’s book promises to address drug use and sexual tidbits about Whitney, Ray J takes the “My Prerogative” singer to task for his lack of bedroom ability. “Is that your wife, is that your shorty, well, I’m her boyfriend,” the 27-year-old sings in the track titled “Boyfriend.” “I think the problem is you don’t beat it right. … Making love is cool, just pull her hair sometimes.”
As for what Bobby has to say about Ray J, the Post’s Page Six offers this from his to-be tome: “Their relationship doesn’t bother me. She’s open to see whoever she wants to see, just like I can see who I want to see. I know the age difference between her and the little guy is 20 years, but to each his own.”
Mama Hilton’s on Nicole’s side
The latest rumored feud between Nicole Richie and Paris Hilton just got a little more interesting, as the National Enquirer alleges the celebutante’s mom, Kathy, is on Nicole’s side.
According to one insider, Kathy finds it odd that her daughter picked the twin brother of Nicole’s main squeeze, Joel Madden, for her latest love connection. “(Kathy) had a talk with Paris about it, questioning her motives for dating Benji,” a family friend told the Enquirer’s Mike Walker.
“Kathy flat-out asked her, ‘Are you doing this just to rile Nicole?’” The source went on to explain, “Kathy loves her daughter, but knows the girl doesn’t have an earnest bone in her body — she’s always up to something, and it would be like her to date the brother of Nicole’s future husband just to get her goat!”
Dish on the fly
Though he’s now clean and sober, Robert Downey Jr. blames his old alcohol and drugs days for robbing him of his movie memories. Films like “U.S. Marshals” and “The Gingerbread Man” are a blur thanks to his former perma-buzz. “I know exactly what movies I was almost continuously drunk on when we filmed,” the actor said in a quote posted to ContactMusic. “I think stuff like, ‘That was a fun day out but, God, I ate way too much rice before lunch.’ Or, ‘Did I bang her?’ That type of stuff.” … During an in-concert chat, Julio Iglesias pondered his status as a great lover. Spain’s TypicallySpanish.com reports the 65-year-old heartthrob recently announced, “If I was gay, I would be the best gay of all history.”
