LiLo’s nude Playboy shoot inspired by her idol Marilyn Monroe

Washington: Playboy founder Hugh Hefner has revealed that Lindsay Lohan’s naked Playboy shoot was inspired by veteran star Marilyn Monroe.

The troubled actress - who was released from jail on Monday after serving just four-and-a half hours of a 30-day sentence - has posed naked for the iconic men’s magazine and Hefner says it pays homage to her idol - who died in August 1962 aged 36 from a suspected drugs overdose.

“It’s a classic tribute inspired by the original Tom Kelly nude pictorial of Marilyn Monroe, a portion of which was the original playmate in the very first issue of Playboy,” Contactmusic quoted him as telling The Insider.

Hugh also confirmed that that the 25-year-old actress-singer has bared it all for the shoot but it has been done in a “classy” way.

“Oh, yes, she’s naked. And classy, very classy,” he added.

Lindsay was initially offered 750,000 dollars to strip off for the publication, but signed the deal only when she was offered 1 million dollars.
