Just a month after [article id="1673637"]posing for Playboy,[/article] Lindsay Lohan's cover has hit the Net.
On the cover, posted by "The Insider," Lohan appears fully nude in front of a red backdrop, her assets strategically covered by a chair in the shape of the magazine's iconic bunny ears, leaving mostly everything to the imagination. The cover is definitely a throwback to the vintage shoots from the magazine's early days.
Lohan, who faced a number of legal battles this year, will sit down with Ellen DeGeneres on her talk show December 15 to open up about the headline-making photo shoot for the January/February issue. According to the magazine rep, the "Ellen" stop is the only interview Lohan will give to promote the issue. During her chat, she will reveal another image from the magazine. She was originally slated to debut the cover on the show as well before it leaked online.
In an interview with "The Insider" in November, Lindsay's mom, Dina, opened up about her daughter's decision to pose for the magazine. "It will be tastefully done," Dina explained. "She's been working in front of the camera with Ford Models since she was a little girl, so she kinda knows how to work that."
E! News reported at the time of the November photo shoot that Lohan had to pose a second time for the magazine after her first shoot didn't get the seal of approval from Playboy founder Hugh Hefner. The source added that while the photos needed to be reshot, Lohan would be keeping one thing the same: She wouldn't appear fully nude in the issue.
A rep for the magazine had not responded to MTV News' request for comment about the leaked cover by press time.
