Playboy magazine featuring nude Lindsay Lohan will be released early following a second leak of her photos, Hugh Hefner decided.
Earlier this week, the Playboy cover featuring Lindsay Lohan, 25, posing nude on a bunny shaped chair hit the net.
But now a further 10 snaps started doing the rounds.
Playboy has confirmed that “someone took photos of Lindsay Lohan’s pictorial in an advanced copy of the January/February issue”.
It was not due to hit newstands for another week (December 15) and it was earlier reported how bosses feared the sales of what they hoped would be the biggest selling issue of the year could be severely hit, according to TMZ.com.
Hugh Hefner has come up with a solution, tweeting: “Because of the interest & the Internet leak, we’re releasing the Lindsay Lohan issue early.” He has not confirmed the new date of release yet.
Lindsay Lohan, who was pictured in Hawaii watching the Pipe Masters Surf Contest from the balcony of a private residence – was paid a reputed $1 million to bare all in the Marilyn Monroe-inspired shoot.
The newly-leaked photos capture her in a series of provocative poses as she channels the tragic screen siren.
Lindsay Lohan appears entirely naked, save for a pair of terracotta platform heels, in most of the inside shots.
The most clothing she wears is a black fur shrug in one frame as she kneels with a red cushion covering her lower half while raising her hands above her head.
The shoot is set against a sexy red backdrop; in some of the photos she lies on ruffled material – while in another she perches on what appears to be a lip-shaped couch.
Looking lasciviously into – and away from – the lens in the spread, Lindsay Lohan is wearing lashings of red lipstick and has Marilyn’s trademark beauty spot above her lip.
Lindsay Lohan wears and assortment of long and short blonde wigs, and completes her look with long fake lashes and heavy black make-up on her eyelids.
Props such as cushions are used to cover her lower half in many of the photographs, although in one she stands entirely naked – only slightly crossing her leg over.
Another frame shows her lying back seductively while holding her breasts with her hands.
One blog has published pages of the magazine and the accompanying interview.
Lindsay Lohan tells Playboy: “Sex and sexuality are part of nature and I go along with nature. I think Marilyn Monroe said that, and I agree with her.
“Knowing your body and being in touch with your body is important because it gives you confidence, and in life, women need confidence.”
Lindsay Lohan had to pose for the magazine photographers twice, as the original attempt did not satisfy Playboy boss Hugh Hefner.
Speaking about the snaps, Hugh Hefner revealed the inspiration behind them.
“It’s a classic tribute, inspired by the original Tom Kelley nude pictorial of Marilyn Monroe. [It’s] classy, very classy,” the New York Post reported.
