Following up on this morning's news about Lindsay Lohan, the Screen Junkies site has put together a list...

... "7 Actresses Who Waited Too Long For Playboy," in their opinion.

I fault their premise. Does Charisma Carpenter look like she waited too long to you?

Okay, with Lisa Rinna, they may have a point.

But most of the women they chose only "waited too long" if you consider that only teenage girls should take their clothes off for a camera--which is just creepy.

Or that the only reason to pose for Playboy would to be in hopes of propelling your career.

I'm not naive--I know that's a reason many women do, including probably most on this list.

But whether it "brought her up to the big leagues," or not--and she's making a good living last time I checked--what about the picture of Teri Polo at right above says "failure?"

And in the case of Denise Richards, I'll fault her for a lot of things, but not for making use of her most desirable asset.

(Oh, lay off. That's over a thousand posts I went without pulling the "assets-ass" joke)

I'd argue that there's also something to be said for having pictures of yourself looking good in the nude, and most of these women looked dazzling.
