Lindsay Lohan nude pretending to be Marilyn Monroe NSFW

Lindsay Lohan didn't hesitate to pose topless for a photo shoot with photographer Bert Stern, who also shot the iconic photos of Marilyn Monroe in a hotel room just six weeks before she died in an apparent pill overdose. Called "The Last Sitting," Marilyn's photos show then then 36-year-old bombshell drunk on champagne and lounging around, with just some sheer scarves as cover. Lohan used the same see-through material as Marilyn in her photo shoot, saying that the decision to pose nearly-nude wasn't hard. "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 owns one of Marilyn Monroe's apartments, and said she has "a lot of Marilyn Stuff," such as a big painting of Monroe that sounds like it depicts her suicide scene, which was a gift. Lohan says of her painting that "It’s eerie 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."

The 21-year-old actress better known for her DUIs and for courting the paparazzi also alluded to Heath Ledger's death in the same breath as Marilyn's suicide, calling both "tragic""

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.” Still, one wonders whether Lohan’s participation in this project, given all the spooky parallels, isn’t the photographic equivalent of moving into a haunted house. (Which, in fact, she may have already done.)

Here are the photos of a woman who is all too willing to talk about "what this industry can do," without actually doing the work of showing up for her job. At least she'll still take it off for photo shoots. Lohan tried to rationalize the shoot, saying that Monroe was giving back to the public with the last photo shoot that Lindsay is mimicking "She’s saying, ‘Look, you’ve taken a lot from me, so why don’t I give it to you myself.’ She’s taking control back." I wonder if Lohan thought she was "taking control back" when she flashed her shaved kitty on several occasions. Now she has the benefit of a famed photographer to help use exhibitionism to give back to the public while remaining in control.

Thanks to for these photos of Lindsay.
