Lindsay Lohan signs 2.1 million book deal
London: Troubled star Lindsay Lohan has reportedly signed a 2.1 million pounds deal to front an explicit photographic book alongside former love interest, actor James Franco.
Photographer Terry Richardson has roped in the 24-year-old actress to appear in the publication, which will feature "full frontal nudity" and "graphic" shots, reported a website.
"Lindsay is struggling to get another break in Hollywood. There`s a stigma attached to working with her and she is determined to change this - starting with the photographic book.
"Terry Richardson has persuaded Lindsay and James to get involved. He has assured them it will be provocative but tasteful. There will be a lot of nakedness - some of it graphic and suggestive - but it will be a real statement book.
"Obviously there will be comparisons to Madonna`s 1992 `Sex` book. But James and Lindsay believe theirs will be classier," said a source.
Lohan, who completed a court-ordered rehab stint last month and is currently awaiting trial over the alleged theft of a USD 2,500 necklace, will also be giving an exclusive tell-all TV interview to talk show host David Letterman in April in the hope of rebuilding her damaged reputation.
"Lindsay wants people to see the real her, not this drunken, out of control caricature she has become," The source added.
