Man in Photo is Not JFK

12/28/2009 2:57 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ received an email from someone who said the photo we posted showing a man appearing to be John F. Kennedy on a yacht with naked women was actually a photo from a 1967 Playboy photo shoot.



We have contacted Playboy and a rep says the photo did indeed run in one of its 1967 issues. We are trying to get a copy and will update as soon as we get the info.

UPDATE: 2:34 PM ET
We've now confirmed the photo was part of a Playboy spread in 1967. The image published in Playboy was published in color.

UPDATE: 1:11 PM ET
A rep from Playboy tells TMZ the photo ran as part of story titled, "Playboy's Charter Yacht Party: How to Have a Ball on the Briny with an Able-Bodies Complement of Ship's Belles." She says the photo was taken on one of the islands that make up the Grenadines (Petit Rameau).

Alright, you censor out 1 centimeter of a nipple on the Carrie Prejean photos and yet you DON'T censor this photo?

"Professor Jeff Sedlik, a forensic photo expert, says the print appears to be authentic." Looks like the prof got his doctorate off the internet, as anyone with some idea of print technology can easily tell that the scan is from a magazine, as it features a quite obvious offset print rosette screen, whereas a photographic print on magnification would show a silver-halide emulsion and random particles - quite different. TMZ - fail!

TMZ DON'T FORGET TO PUT A STOP PAYMENT ON THAT CHECK YOUR WROTE THE "OWNER" OF THIS "EXCLUSIVE" PIC.

BY THE WAY PEOPLE, THAT IS NOT JFK IN THE PIC. IT'S A PLAYBOY PAID MODEL NAMED "ANDY", AND THIS WAS TAKEN IN 1967 AFTER ALL.

Hey TMZ. I've got a rare picture of Mother Teresa holding a 40 oz and smoking a blunt kicking a 4 year old in the face. Send me 10k and it's all yours.
