Playboy 'Freaking Out'

Over Lindsay

Naked Photo Leak

12/9/2011 10:35 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1204_lilo_playboy
Lindsay Lohan's highly classified Playboy photo shoot leaked to the Internet this morning -- one week before the issues was set to hit newsstands -- and TMZ has learned Playboy honchos are "freaking out."

First off -- the pics aren't bad ... it's a Marilyn Monroe thing ... and it works.

Playboy sources tell us ... there are fears the leak could significantly damage sales of the magazine ... which is expected to be the best seller of the year.

The shoot was a massive investment for Playboy -- the mag shelled out nearly $1 million to Lohan  for the spread and we're told the company has printed thousands of extra copies in anticipation of a sales boom.

Seriously her lips look f*ked up. This is going to be a top seller this year? Who was last years top seller Herman Munster?

The pics are utter garbage. Why take pictures of Lindsay Lohan looking like someone else? We wanted to see Lindsay, and all of her at that. The pics are worthless, Playboy deserves to get screwed on the deal because they don't have a clue about modern tastes and interests.

It is proven time and time again...once lindsay gets paid..she can careless about who paid her...
this being leaked will her initial sells...some people want to see how bad she has gotten..now they dont have to wait..
Playboy execs should be freaking out...they just lost a huge amount of money by showing these pics early
-----------
now if the cover was only leaked then interest would build and they would have sold more...
too late for would of,could of,should of....

Terrible... just terrible.... Pics are horrible... what a joke: http://imgur.com/a/y2PNH#0

They posed her as Monroe... and she looks so trashy... just like Monroe. These pics are nothing to be proud of and not many people are going to rush out and buy a copy of something they have already seen.

The article's title and subtitle is:
Lindsay Reborn.
Classic beauty, wild child, silver screen siren, inmate #2409752. The rise, fall, and redemption of America's most fascinating celebrity.

Yes, that's what Playboy is saying.

"...and it works."??? I have seen the pictures...it does not work. They are really bad. Playboy is delusional if they think naked pictures of this girl is going to boost sales.

These photos are TERRIBLE! Why don't they just use a cartoon because she is all photoshopped. You can see all her freckles and if she's trying to channel MM, she has utterly failed. These photos are downright ugly and who wants to see her boobs anyway? BIG DEAL! The fake "leak" is also laughable as everyone is on to this kind of crap. Boy Playboy must be losing its mind to give this chick anything over $50 bucks. Because the pictures of her are awful and I wouldn't pay a cent.
