Lindsay Lohan sure is naked in the latest issue of New York magazine. Did I mention she's not even promoting anything?! I'm not sure if that makes things better or worse.
Lohan's nude series of photos is a recreation of some of Marilyn Monroe's final pictures, collectively known as the "Last Sitting." Monroe was found dead of a barbiturate overdose six weeks after she posed for the pics.
Despite the history associated with the shoot, Lohan says her decision to reprise the photos is not a "sly nod to her scandalous past." She offers a straightforward explanation. “I didn’t have to put much thought into it," she says. "I mean, Bert Stern [the photographer]? Doing a Marilyn shoot? When is that ever going to come up? It’s really an honor.”
