Lindsay Lohan’s Pictorial Leak Sends ‘Playboy’ Magazine Into A Tizzy


After the coverphoto of Lindsay Lohan’s much-talked about issue of Playboy magazine leaked to the Internets earlier this week the ENTIRE pictorial spread inside the magazine leaked its way online yesterday. Because the issue wasn’t due to hit newsstands until the end of next week, Hugh Hefner found himself scrambling for a solution to the problem. Hef posted a series of tweets downplaying the leak and announcing that L. Lo’s issue of Playboy will be “released early” (tho, no release date has yet been announced). Lindsay, no doubt, was relishing all of the attention that her photos have been getting. She made available to TMZ a non-nude photo of herself that was snapped on the set of the Playboy shoot last month … which you can check out below.

Lo and behold … the only surviving shot from the Lindsay Lohan Playboy photo shoot that hasn’t been touched up by professionals … and it might be the best one of the entire spread. The pic was taken behind the scenes during Lindsay’s 2-day shoot back in November — right before she disrobed for a Marilyn Monroe-inspired spread. The final shoots were leaked onto the web yesterday — and while Lindsay looks good, it’s obvious they were photoshopped like a mutha.

Here is the series of tweets that Hugh Hefner posted on his official Twitter profile addressing the photo leak:

Because of the interest & the Internet leak, we’re releasing the Lindsay Lohan issue early. / Lindsay Lohan was the top search name on the Internet yesterday. Her issue goes on sale late next week. Hot. Hot. Hot. / Due to high demand, the Playboy issue with Lindsay Lohan’s pictorial is now available on iPlayboy at / The actual Lindsey Lohan issue will be available on newsstands at the end of next week. Hot. Hot. Hot. / The Lindsey Lohan issue will make the perfect Christmas issue for men in your life–father, son, husband, boyfriend, whoever. / The Lindsay Lohan pictorial was inspired by the Marilyn Monroe nudes by Tom Kelley that launched Playboy & her career. / The super Lindsay Lohan issue is a double issue with two Centerfolds, including Leola “Tinker” Bell. / The Holiday Anniversary Issue is filled with over 200 pages of great reading in addition to Lindsay & the Playmate Review.

HMMM. It sounds like the print issue of Playboy is still due for release next week while the digital version is available online now … but a simple Google search will easily pull up all of Lindsay’s Playboy photos for free. Some folks are speculating that Playboy is actually behind the photo leak and I can assure you, that is not the case. It makes no sense for the company to aid the free proliferation of these photos … as it stands, the leak will likely cause them a major loss of their investment.

As for the photos themselves, well, I did get to see them in full and … altho Lindsay is seemingly airbrushed to perfection, I cannot help but feel very sorry for her. It’s just a sad image to see Lindsay flaunting her naked body for money and attention. There is nothing empowering about the photos … she just looks like a sad, lost girl desperate to be someone else. The photos are heavily inspired by Marilyn Monroe’s 1953 Playboy pictorial … and while the homage is obvious, Lindsay’s photos in no way come close to emulating Marilyn’s far superior photos.

In positive news, I understand that Lindsay is making great successful progress with her court-ordered probation duties. Apparently, she has been working hard and fulfilling her probation hours like a champ. She’s been doing such a good job that her probation officer OKed a quick trip to Hawaii. Let’s hope this is the start of a whole new life for Lindsay … one where she no longer has to strip naked for money and attention.

    She still looks like she’s in her 40’s after being airbrushed. The pictures are pretty, but I had a good laugh at the photshop fail where she has one thigh instead of two!

  • Sergeja

    Hugh should really learn how to spell her name :))

  • Meagan

    I feel like she wants to identify with Marilyn Monroe SO BAD and instead of enjoying immense success and then falling into disarray with fame and drugs, she fast forwarded through all the success straight into the turmoil. It’s almost as if she thinks she is Marilyn all over but the sad part is, if she dies of an overdose, no one will remember her as anything other than a mess because, really, what has she done in the last few years?

    • Jenn

      Well put.

      You know though, as soon as she could she started revealing herself more and more and more… it was only a matter of time before she did a full nudity shot. I don’t respect her any more because of it. I just see a sad, lost girl with a lot of issues that still need to be dealt with. And not dealt with publicly.

      BTW- (random thought!)has Dinah Lohan commented any on this spread??

  • Meagan

    Also, I love how Hugh suggests people buy the magazine for their son or father…

  • Be a little inappropriate

    I don’t even know why she would want to emulate this shoot doesn’t she know the background story about it and how MM was exploited and regretted doing it.

  • nicole

    i saw the pictures and i surprised myself cause i didnt think they were too bad. i mean nothing overly spectacular but they werent bad by any means.

  • cinner

    The pics are so sadly unoriginal. There is no lindsay in one single shot. That hair color ages her in the wrong direction. Hef is gonna lose his ass over this.

  • ThiefGold

    And you can tell how badly she was touched up. She looks WAY better in the photos that are attached to this article. Not sure if there is any of her left in the actual shoot.
