Disgraced one-time teen movie star Lindsay Lohan's decision to pose nude (for a reported $1 mil) in Playboy is an all-round success! Sure, people continue to deride LiLo. Yes, like 90 percent of LiLo's other photo shoots, it ripped off classic Marilyn Monroe pictorials.

Yes, it was roundly panned by critics as boring, unimaginative, un-erotic and lame.

And yes, the whole idea — that such a vibrant young actor would be reduced to selling herself to a glossy rag — is distasteful.

But no matter! The issue is selling well, says Playboy founder Hugh Hefner.

"The Lindsay Lohan January-February Double Issue is breaking sales records," the octogenarian lady-killer tweets.

Observers contest the claim, counter-claiming (with no statistics) that sales are miserable.
