(Un)fortunately-timed limo exits and a few photo spreads are one thing, but when it comes to seeing if she's Fully Loaded on film, Lindsay Lohan has never been one for public nudity. Was Robert Rodriguez able to coax her out of her sartorial shell?
In the director's raucous new film "Machete," starring Danny Trejo as a former Mexican federale hired to assassinate an anti-immigration senator, the 24-year old actress appears in various states of undress throughout the film (usually with long hair covering other assets.) Still, Mr. Skin fans can revel at Lohan's apparent toplessness, her first ever on film.
The matter of Lohan's nudity is not an open-and-shut case, though. The fact that during her "ménage-a-trois in the pool" scene we get a full look at her character's naked bosom but not her face has led some to claim Lohan had a "freckle-less body double."
So we looked close while watching "Machete" -- for the sake of journalistic integrity, of course -- and are staking our reputations on it being the real deal, especially during a later scene in a church (natch).
In her role as April, Jeff Fahey's rebellious, conniving daughter, Lohan is naked virtually the entire movie, notwithstanding an already-classic "nun with a gun" outfit. As an homage to 1970s exploitation films, Lohan eschews the "damsel in distress" role and proves she can be as unpredictable on-camera as off.
We're not sure which is more emotionally damaging: murdering someone at point blank range or having a threesome with Danny Trejo and your on-screen mother. It's probably a tie.
