Lindsay Lohan’s Playboy issue has officially hit news stands, and Hugh Hefner is finally speaking out about the pictorial in his famous men’s magazine.
Though he second guessed the news when he first heard, he tells E! News,
“It really came as a surprise to me. I kind of had mixed emotions about it initially, and then it turned into something bigger than life. I wasn’t quite sure where she was at in her life, obviously. It depends on whether it’s Tuesday or Thursday. The pictorial and the concept for the pictorial came from me. She had done semi-nudes before. I wanted to do something that would be memorable. So what is more natural, since she is a huge fan of Marilyn Monroe, than do something that is a tribute to the red-velvet, Tom Kelley photo shot of Marilyn Monroe that was our very first Playmate? I think it was essentially mama and the folks around her that kept pushing for less nudity. And I said, ‘We’re doing a nude pictorial here. We’re going to do it in a very classy way and we’re going to do it in a way in which it will not be forgotten.’ I think it was accomplished beyond anything I could have possibly imagined. People will not forget this pictorial. It became a stocking stuffer!”
We have to admit, the photos turned out good! Add that with Lohan’s positive progress report from the courts, and this COULD be her big comeback!
