Lindsay Lohan nude spread for Playboy is leaked

December 10, 2011 |  5:29 pm


Looks like Lindsay Lohan's full monty has been revealed early -- and not in Playboy's glorious glossy form.

Lohan's full spread hit the Internet on Friday after a shot of her cover was tweeted a few days before, trumpeting the arrival of her nude photo shoot for Hugh Hefner's magazine.

Inspired by Tom Kelly's famous portraits of Marilyn Monroe, Lohan rocks platinum blond hair and a pair of pumps (and nothing else) draped across red velvet. Hefner told fans that the Marilyn tribute was his idea. "I thought it would make it truly memorable," he wrote.

"Sex and sexuality are a part of nature and I go along with nature. I think Marilyn Monroe once said that," Lohan reportedly told the mag.

Hefner certainly approves of his cover star.

"Lindsay Lohan was the top search name on the Internet yesterday. Her issue goes on sale late next week. Hot. Hot. Hot," the mogul tweeted.

The magazine's street date was moved up to next Friday, Dec. 16, in response to the nude photos leaked online. Now the magazine will be available the day after Lohan's appearance on Ellen DeGeneres' daytime talk show, which is where she was originally set to unveil the magazine's cover. But that plan was upset when the cover leaked this week as well.

The photos of Lohan have had their (predictable) share of criticism since going online. Most have commented on the amount of Photoshopping done to the pictures. As one person said in a tweet directed at Hefner, "nice washed out pictures of that ginger .... i wonder what she looks like in real lighting .... possibly a gremlin?"
