Lindsay Lohan Red, White, Nude in Leaked Playboy Photos

Lindsay Lohan channels Marilyn Monroe as promised in the upcoming issue of Playboy, according to a series of photos from the magazine that have gone viral on the Internet.

Playboy executives were reportedly taken by surprise and “freaking out,” according to gossip Web site TMZ. But they may be feigning mock horror.

It seems like every time Playboy has a big shoot coming up in its magazine, some photos leak. The same thing happened when the magazine ran a spread of Kim Kardashian.

The magazine probably has dozens if not hundreds of photos from two separate shoots with Lohan, and the photos that appear in the published edition may be entirely different.

Lohan’s Playboy cover was the first to go viral on Wednesday (Dec. 11). The magazine’s execs must have known something was up.

The cover showed her sitting astride a red chair with the back, Playboy’s iconic logo, artfully covering her private parts.

The leaked photos are largely as advertised. They feature Lohan channeling Monroe, who was the first sex siren to appear naked on Playboy’s cover in the 1950s when the magazine debuted.

Hugh Hefner reportedly paid close to $1 million for the photos, and the deal was supposed to include full-frontal nudity.

While Lohan is fully nude, none of the photos expose Lindsay’s vagina, and could be considered tasteful as nude photos go. Whether the magazine shots are the same remain to be seen.

In contrast, Kardashian’s photos showed her private parts.

Lohan, 25 reportedly had negotiated as part of the deal that she would appear on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” Dec 15 to personally unveil her Playboy cover.

That was supposed to be the only publicity before publication, which suggests even more than the leak was planned.

The full issue is expected to hit the newsstands in a week. If these are the real photos, it’s uncertain whether Playboy has time to remake the issue, or wants to.

Playboy execs reportedly fear that the leaks could damage sales, according to TMZ, but more likely they will cause sales to spike as fans rush to buy what could be a collector’s issue.

The company has printed thousands of extra copies in anticipation of a sales boom, TMZ reported.

Lohan looks stunning in the shoot, and wisely, the magazine did not airbrush out her freckles. If this doesn’t help relaunch he career, nothing will.
