Irina Shayk, one of the world’s hottest lingerie models, says she would never pose for Playboy, taking an indirect swipe at Lindsay Lohan. Shayk says she has too much “class.”
Lohan posed for Playboy and was featured in the January issue in a spread that paid tribute to Marilyn Monroe, the magazine’s first nude cover model.
She revealed that Hugh Hefner offered her a bundle to pose naked, but says she spurned him.
Irina Shayk: I Have Class
“I would never do Playboy. Yes, I am a lingerie model, but I have class. Playboy offered me so much money last year. I was like: ‘No. Way,'” she told Esquire in a new interview with the men’s magazine.

“Naomi Campbell and Claudia Schiffer did it,” she acknowledged. “But they did it at the end of their career and it was classy.”
“I think of myself as a cover girl. But I would never do some kind of cheesy magazine.” Playboy cheesy? Yikes, what would Hef say?
Ironically, the Russian model and girlfriend of soccer superstar Cristiano Ronaldo, has no problem shedding her clothes in front of a camera. In fact, she posed topless for Esquire.
She’s pictured topless in black bikini panties with her arm strategically placed across her chest. She also poses in black bikini lingerie and garters draped over the railing of a staircase.
Irina Shayk Rumored to be Engaged
Shayk’s career has skyrocketed since she started dating Ronaldo, and last year she won the cover of the coveted Sport Illustrated swimsuit issue, which features some of the hottest models in the world.
Irina and the Portuguese soccer star, who plays for Real Madrid, have been dating since early 2010.
Lohan was reportedly paid close to $1 million to pose naked for Playboy. The magazine says the issue has sold well, despite a major leak of the entire photo spread on the Internet three weeks before the publication date.
Playboy lawyers hurriedly issued takedown notices to sites posting the photos, and Hefner moved up release of the magazine to capitalize on the publicity.
