Lindsay Lohan decided that contrasting her freckly, thin, shapeless body to Marilyn Monroe's body in her final photoshoot, was a good idea. She was photographed by Bert Stern, who photographed Marilyn's last shoot.

See the photos here and here.

Lohan said deciding to pose nude was easy.

"I didn't have to put much thought into it. I mean, Bert Stern? Doing a Marilyn shoot? When is that ever going to come up? It's really an honour," she told the magazine.

Lohan said Monroe's suicide was "tragic" and said it, along with the death of Heath Ledger from an accidental overdose of prescription drugs, "are both prime examples of what this industry can do to someone".

Stern told The Associated Press that he found women like Lohan and her tabloid companions Paris Hilton and Britney Spears "interesting".

They're girls that draw attention to their notoriety and their celebrity through their behaviour," he said.

"I thought she was a natural, not at all squeamish."

This girl just can't get it right. This is not the next sensible move for an off-the-wagon, rehabbed actress that just keeps failing at everything she does. Try getting clean and holding out for a role that can really put her acting chops to work.

Dude is 79 years old now, his eyes are getting old if he thinks Linds is looking good.. here are the rest of the photos from her homage to Marilyn for New York magazine, photographed by Bert Stern at the Hotel Bel-Air. The same photographer that photographed Marilyn in 1962 at the same hotel - six weeks before she was found dead of a drug overdose.


NSFW: here are some more beauties.. they get worse. She looks especially ridiculous in with the yellow roses.
