While many fathers may cringe at the idea of their daughters stripping down for a magazine, Michael Lohan is looking on the bright side of things.

"If she's happy with it, I’m happy with it," Lohan said on Dr. Drew's The Lifechangers about daughter Lindsay Lohan's nude Playboy photos. "It's a move in a direction where she’s working…so as far as I'm concerned it's a good move."

Lindsay, 25, earned an reported $1 million for her nude photos in Playboy's January/February 2012 issue, where she poses in a Marilyn Monroe-esque shoot on a red velvet background.

And although Lindsay's parents, Michael, 51, and Dina Lohan, 49 make headlines for not getting along, she too seems to mirror Michael's remarks.

"It was an opportunity for her. She's 25-years-old now, so it was her ultimate decision," Dina explained to The Insider in November. "It will be tastefully done."
