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).

JFK was remembered as a good president because he was young, attractive, and killed in office. Too bad The Enquire wasn't around to sort out all his affairs. Another great Catholic lying and cheating.

I see TMZ is following in the footsteps of FauxNews these days and decided to make up it's own "news"...leave the hateful, racist, make believe "news" up to FauxNews, they are simply way too good at making it up and it seems you guys simply failed at your attempt

7. It ran in a playboy so essentially TMZ is just reporting news about old news. Why not report on Abraham Lincoln's death too like you're the first one.

Hey TMZ why don't you run a "What do they look like now" on those beauties. I bet you it won't be so black and white.

I knew this was a photo shoot as soon as I saw it. None of the woman are showing their "private parts". That's the way it was in 1967.

This is why people should stop hiring White people just because they're White. There are plenty of unemployed and educated people that might qualify to work for TMZ.

Seriously, I love that mere hours after those "experts" allowed their names/credibilty to be associated with this photo's authenticity endorsement a random person who wanks to playboy remembered this from a 1967 issue!

TMZ Fail.

Obviously a fake. The head doesn't even line up with the body, and there's black background (from the original photo) surrounding the face.

The antiquity of the paper can be explained by it being an old fake. Faking photos didn't start with Photoshop...

You cut out part of a picture and paste on another photo, then rephotograph them.

Quite common.
