In the essay accompanying the photos, Lohan, who admitted to a serious interest in Monroe, said deciding to do the photo shoot was easy.
When we got a single copy of this week's New York magazine, featuring a naked Lindsay Lohan re-creating iconic shots from Marilyn Monroe's last photo shoot, it got passed around the office like contraband, causing groups of us to stand around and discuss whether it was a good career move, how much she did or didn't look like Marilyn, and, mostly, if those bare boobs are real or fake.
