Lindsay Lohan poses nude as Marilyn Monroe

Lindsay Lohan posed nude for a photo shoot with legendary photographer Bert Stern. Bert recreated an iconic photo shoot he did with Marilyn Monroe 46 years ago for New York magazine. Why choose Lindsay Lohan? Besides her “depth” (i.e. sweater cannons), Bert found similarities between the two actresses:

Stern, who shot the photos on film rather than digitally, told me he was interested in Lohan because he suspected “she had a lot more depth to her” than one might assume from “those teenage movies.” Indeed, many in the film industry believe that Lohan has yet to pursue projects equal to her gifts. Without putting too fine a point on it, you might say Lohan has, like Monroe, a knack for courting the tabloids and tripping up her career.

I don’t want to say Lindsay Lohan has a lot of freckles, but I don’t remember Marilyn Monroe having a topographical map across her chest. Also, Marilyn Monroe was reportedly drunk during the shoot while Lindsay is sober. Nice, Lindsay, how am I supposed to look at your breasts when you can’t even respect history? I guess I’ll manage – somehow. You’re lucky I’m a professional. Somebody fetch my boob-looking glasses.

NOTE: Pics are obviously NSFW. That’s code for “awesome!”
