Lindsay Lohan Does Her Best (Naked) Marilyn Impression
Lindsay Lohan bares all — no, really — for the cover of New York magazine's Spring fashion issue. Photographer Bert Stern re-created his famous final photoshoot with Marilyn Monroe, making yet another bold comparison between the two actresses. Just like in the original shoot, the blonde bombshell in front of the camera (LL wore a wig) stripped down to nothing. We've got the more safe photos compiled here, but check out the NY mag site for all the NSFW glory. I know that LL loves her body, but I was still a little shocked to wake up and see this. As for why she went along with it, Lindsay said it was a no brainer, "I didn’t have to put much thought into it. I mean, Bert Stern? Doing a Marilyn shoot? When is that ever going to come up? It’s really an honor." Lohan on the Marilyn painting hanging in her house:
"It’s eerie,” Lohan said of the painting, a Christmas gift, “because it’s this picture of her, and it’s kind of cartoony, and there’s a big bottle of pills next to her, and they’ve fallen over.” Lohan called Monroe’s suicide “tragic,” and then added, elliptically, “You know, it’s also tragic what just recently happened to someone else.” I asked whether she was referring to Heath Ledger. She nodded: “They are both prime examples of what this industry can do to someone.” Why some and not others, I asked, since it has often seemed that the thrice-rehabbed Lohan might meet a similar fate. Lohan replied with a flicker of annoyance: “I don’t know. I’m not them. But I sure as hell wouldn’t let it happen to me.”
Lindsay Lohan seems pretty confident in the control she has over herself so fingers crossed all those rumors about her drinking again don't mean she's headed back down a bad path. Let's just hope that LL keeps her Marilyn Monroe imitation to photoshoots, paintings, and racy rumors.
