Lindsay Lohan’s Playboy cover was supposed to be revealed next week. Instead, it was leaked online Wednesday and has gotten Lohan some unusually good press for a change.
Leaked by The Insider, the cover features Lohan seated on a chair in nothing but black stilettos and a strategically placed Playboy logo a la Marilyn Monroe. So far no other photos from the spread have been released.
Lindsay Lohan was expected to appear on the Ellen DeGeneres Show December 15 to unveil the entire shoot. Plans for the show are still in place. Meanwhile Lohan and Playboy can take comfort in the fact that the cover is getting rave reviews from Lohan fans and critics alike.
It would appear Playboy invested the reportedly $1 million it paid Lohan to appear in the magazine’s January/February issue well. The move could have been considered a risky one given Lohan’s recent profile issues which included less than perfect teeth and over processed hair.
Lohan’s publicist, Steve Honig, released a statement saying, “The pictorial is absolutely fantastic and very tasteful, and will be accompanied by an interview that will let readers see another side of Lindsay.”
Obviously prior to Wednesday’s leaked cover there were doubts about how ‘fantastic’ the spread would be. As for tasteful, well gee, it’s Playboy. They’re all about tasteful photo spreads so what else would we expect?
The comment about seeing a new side of Lindsay Lohan makes you wonder. First, aside from the drunken, naughty bits flashing, wardrobe malfunctioning, public service serving Lindsay we know, is there really anything we haven’t seen? Well, maybe the hard working kid actress with the apparently bright future. But it seems we waved bye-bye to her long ago.
Second, with Playboy’s penchant for hard hitting news and sharp edged writing, it’s more likely we’ll learn Lindsay likes sunset sails and long walks on the beach. Here’s for holding out for a more exciting bit of information. Like perhaps her recent community service in a morgue inciting a career change to mortician.
