A nude Lindsay Lohan ‘Marilyn Monroe’ inspired cover photo leaked over the internet this week. A few others showed up on the Perez Hilton site which have been taken down out of respect for Playboy Magazine and Lindsay Lohan. The photos were shot for January/Febuary double Playboy issue but due to the leak will be released as early as Friday the 16th to cash in on all the publicity its garnering. On Friday, the magazine’s mogul Hugh Hefner tweeted he would release the Lohan issue early after the leaked photos caused a “sensation” online. Lindsay Lohan was the top search name on the Internet yesterday. Hugh wrote, “Her issue goes on sale late next week. Hot. Hot. Hot.” 1 Million dollars Hot! LOL!”
The Lohan 10 page pictorial will recreate Playboy’s iconic movie star spread featuring Marilyn Monroe in1953, shot by Tom Kelley.
