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.
Lindsay also opens up about her sex appeal, the paparrazi’s obsession with her and what she would have done differently growing up in the spotlight.
“Looking back, I probably would have listened to and taken more advice from the people whom I admire and would have followed through with it more,” she said. “My stubbornness at 18 and 19 years old got in the way,” she added. “During the last five years, I’ve learned that time flies faster than you think, and because you only live once you have to learn from your mistakes, live your dreams and be accountable.”
The actress says when it comes to being sexy, confidence is key.
“Sex and sexuality are a part of nature, and I go along with nature,” she said. “I think Marilyn Monroe once said that. I certainly agree with her…Knowing yourself and your body is so important because it gives you confidence, and in life, women need confidence. It’s a very male-dominated world to begin with, so knowing yourself and being comfortable with your body is an important thing for me as a woman.”
As for constantly being hounded by the paparazzi?
“I have no idea why there is this fascination with everything I do,” she said. “I suppose it is all part of this trend of people wanting to know every single detail of a celebrity’s life. I mean, once we get to the point where magazines are doing pictorials on my wardrobe to court, that’s just so unimportant.”
Lindsay also has made it known that her idol is Marilyn Monroe. In a forward she wrote for Susan Bernard’s new book (published October 4,2011) Marilyn: Intimate Exposures:
“Marilyn was the beautiful bad girl in that tight, rose-colored dress. The character she played was strong and taking control, which I unconsciously knew at that young age  was a necessary quality for a woman … I can understand the photographer Bernard of Hollywood’s [Bruno Bernard] statement, ‘it took a superhuman effort to be Marilyn.’ I identify.
Lindsay also posed as Marilyn in another recreation of The Last Sitting by Photographer Bert Stern in the January 5, 2008 issue of New York Magazine. Bert Stern had three sessions with Marilyn Monroe for Vogue magazine in late June 1962,at the Hotel Bel air six weeks before her tragic death.
People in their mind have created who I am and act as if there is no real person inside of me. Just like Marilyn … I had always thought that movie stars were in films that would last forever in your mind. But now the films don’t. I don’t want to be remembered as someone who just wanted to be photographed, who goes out at night, and gets in trouble.
Heath Ledger once said to me, “It’s built you up to knock you down and that’s all it is … ” Marilyn said she had no foundation. But she said she was really working on it. I’ve been trying to do the same thing … I believe in myself and I’m a good actress.
Sources have said Lindsay is dying to play Marilyn in a movie,so when Michelle Williams got the part for Harvey Weinstein’s ‘My Week-End With Marilyn’ she must have been upset. Michelle Williams was also Heath Ledger’s partner from 2004-2007. Supposably Lindsay was secretly dating Heath (who was publicly dating Mary-Kate Olsen) in 2008 and was planning on visiting him a few days after his death on January 22, 2008.
In a discovered secret diary:
January 22, 2008
Today Heath died. I’m in love with him. He was the love of my life. He taught me so much, and he was everything I’ve ever wanted and more. I want to hear him laugh and hold me. I crave his touch and care. When a person dies the world stops. I’m numb.
