New York magazine got itself a sure seller this week. Troubled actress Lindsay Lohan is nude — as in freckles, nipples and tattoo — in a color photo spread recreating Bert Stern's famous 1962 "last photo shoot" of Marilyn Monroe. Lohan, Stern and team snuck into the Hotel Bel Air on February 5 to shoot the images. She tells Amanda Fortini, the Los Angeles-based writer of the accompanying story:
"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....
“I was comfortable with it,” the actress remarked of the nudity (though she did confess to doing “250 crunches” the previous night).
The magazine has a revealing slide show up now and says it will post web-only outtakes of Stern's photos on Wednesday.
