So much nip where this came from. WeHo Confidential
Updated at the bottom: Hef decides to release the issue early after making a (feigned?) fuss about the leak.
Lindsay Lohan’s entire Marilyn Monroe-themed nude Playboy spread, for which she was reportedly paid $1 million by the silken-robed one, leaked this morning. (The “classy” cover leaked earlier this week.)
TMZ says “the company has printed thousands of extra copies in anticipation of a sales boom.”
Oops. Hugh Hefner’s apparently a little old to understand how the Internet works. (Also too old to be proposing to 23-year-olds, but whatever. The world has come to accept his almost artful perviness by now.) Photos — straight from everyone’s favorite Holmby Hills mansion — below.
The subhead to the “Lindsay Reborn” profile is a little ambitious:
“Classic beauty, wild child, silver screen siren, inmate #2409752. The rise, fall and redemption of America’s most fascinating celebrity.”
Really? Huh. At least the pics are hot! For the full shoot, see WeHo Confidential’s ballsy spread. And tell us: What do y’all think? She got anything on the original, whose red-satin shoot was exactly replicated here, with almost boring precision?
Or at least, like, Michelle Williams?
Update, 4 p.m.: The way Playboy king Hugh Hefner is Tweeting this thing up, you’d think the Lohan photo leak was orchestrated to hype the issue.Even if this isn’t a PR stunt, it’s doing great things for a dying icon. Hell, Playboy hasn’t gotten this much buzz since L.A. County health officials found pneumonia in the grotto.
