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).

If you look at the woman leaping off the boat, her tan indicates a mid to late 1960's bikini tan line. Now if they had bathing suits like that in the 1950's, it's the first I've seen. I don't think it's a Kennedy on board.

Technically this picture will change history, all TMZ credibility has been lost.
Better fill up that sippy cup with some scotch.

Awww c'mon, if that WAS KENNEDY, he wouldn't be sleeping in the sun, he'd be so depleted of bodily fluids, he'd have been DRY HUMPING every chick on that boat!

So much for TMZ credibility. The need to rush out with this photo and claim it was JFK was...? Like this was breaking news?

LOL!
You can try and explain it as much as you want. Not going to change the fact that you have a supbar staff.

Even the papers in Europe are talking about the EPIC FAIL of TMZ.

Maybe...just maybe...you'll learn how to do actual research.

This story is why TMZ's ad revenues are down four years in a row. TMZ is hangin' on to Time Warner's tits but just barely. Levin and his incompetent staff boobs are heading for the dust bin. Good riddance, Harvey!

Maybe TMZ should stick to its "What's the Friggin (sic) Difference" and leave the real investigative journalism to the pros.

Had to pull out the old magnifying glass....but it DOES look like JFK to me. Who would be surprised...Everyone knows that he cavorted, did drugs with Willie Nelson on the White roof (and the list goes on).

No one said the picture was taken in 1967...it was just published in 1967.

I had my doubts from the first. The bikini tan lines are inconsistent with bathing suits of the 50's. More in line with those of the 60's.
