Lindsay Lohan is Marilyn Monroe

Lindsay Lohan is Marilyn Monroe

Lindsay Lohan bares all and does her best Marilyn Monroe, recreating Monroe‘s last (nude) photo shoot for New York Magazine.

In 1962, photographer Bert Stern shot Marilyn Monroe in “The Last Sitting” photo shoot and 46 years later, he revisited his classic shots with Lindsay Lohan. Here are some snippets from Lindsay‘s interview with NY Mag:

On comparing Marilyn Monroe and Heath’s Ledger’s tragic deaths: “They are both prime examples of what this industry can do to someone… I don’t know. I’m not them. But I sure as hell wouldn’t let it happen to me.”

On posing nude: “I was comfortable with it… 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 honor.”

On the Monroe photos Lohan revisits: “Here is a woman who is giving herself to the public. She’s saying, ‘Look, you’ve taken a lot from me, so why don’t I give it to you myself.’ She’s taking control back.”

    “Marilyn Monroe and Heath’s Ledger’s tragic suicides”

    suicides? WTF

  • babeyea

    Lindsay is beautiful. Recently there are many news about her. I saw her on R i c h C u p i d s.com yesterday. Good luck to her search.

  • Jaded

    Marilyn was NEVER so bony. She was 100% woman. LL is just a girl not wanting to grow up but trying to act like it.

  • ely

    Um, yea… No!

  • luckyj

    Not even close. She’s got nothing.

  • Helena

    The first picture scared me. It looks like Myra Hindley!

  • http://andromeda.qc.ca sherry

    She sure as hell wouldn’t let it happen to her, and yet she’s been in rehab, been pulled over for a DUI… right.

    And never mind that the coroner ruled that Heath’s death was an accidental overdose. Her snide little comment is so belittling.

    And she’s no Marilyn Monroe, not even close.

  • yo

    hell no. this skank needs to NOT even think she can come close to mariyln. these pix are hot garbage

    And yeah, heath committed suicide. please you don’t take 6 strong medications and think i’m not gonna die. ANYTHING taken with oxy’s and your askin’ to kick the bucket.

  • Padma

    besides funny how byotches like Christina A. and Lindsay try so hard to be Marilyn, while some one like Scarlett, who has a certain similarity (visually – and I am NOT saying she is the exact reflection) just does her thing without flashing everyone for no reason and being fake all over!

  • ew

    ok..enough is enough.
    That is just disgusting.
    She is too gross to be doing that.

  • Jaded

    pls stop throwing dirt at Heath’s memory. This thread is not about him, nor should it be.

  • Daisy

    Ok this is blasphemy. Why does every stupid starlet feel the need to compare herself to Marilyn Monroe? Enough!

  • Peppo

    That quote of hers about Ledger and Monrow is ridiculous, there’s a slight judgment in her saying that it happened to them but, “I sure as hell wouldn’t let it happen to me.” Oh no? Then what about your alcohol and drug abuse, your whoring and meaningless fling after fling after fling, your constant presence in the Paris Hilton partying scene, your poor movie choices, etc. Can you say unstable? Talk about the pot calling the kettle black; how self-righteous of her.

  • Eva

    sorry, but she looks HORRIBLE!

  • umbrella

    Scarlett Johannesson would have been much more better than this stupid b**ch as a Marilyn…

  • bejeebus

    i know that marilyn was not an “all natural” beauty (nose job, etc) but lindsay has got some nerve thinking she could try to impersonate an icon and not get all sorts of negative commentary in response to it. marilyn at 36 was faaaaaar more beautiful then lindsay has ever been and ever will be. the fact that lilo thought she could even be in the same league is completely laughable….or delusional. lilo looks used up, worn and very hard.

    p.s. did you all know that her little sister actually sat in on this photo shoot? nice example for her big sister to set for her huh?

  • Milli

    she looks dirty,like she needs a good scrub.

  • ?

    eww her freckles makes her lukk more disgusting

  • Ha!

    Marilyn Monroe was all woman. Not a little girl with fake boobs and a pre-pubescent body. Puh-leeze.

  • mANDY

    No, no, no.

  • amber

    Eww! She should keep her clothes on at ALL times! And people sleep with that?! Really?! *shudders* She could never be Marilyn in a million years with a million face lifts.

  • Orange soda

    Lindsay wishes she could be Marilyin Monroe… She ws amazing and she looked like women should look like, no scrawny asses… like LL.

    And the similarities between Heath’s and Marilyn’s Death? WTF???

    And she’ll never let that happend to her… HA! I don’t believe that for a second… because if they were accidental then, please there is no way you can know.. and she’s a crack wh0r3 so…

  • Peppo

    Sorry, meant “Monroe”, not “Monrow”!

  • suzy

    do not want.

  • LanieCroft

    Lindsay is Marilyn … what every she smoke she should stop it.
    She’s nothing like Marilyn, not in her wildest dreams
    Marilyn is unrivaled. unique.
    I wonder why wanna be starlets try to copy the one and only Marilyn.

  • sheryl

    What the heck is she trying to prove? The word “wrong” does not adequately convey the wrongness of this photo shoot…

    Girl, do something credible! Quit trying to force your fame….you are absolutely ruining any chance for yourself. And your comments about Heath and Marilyn? Please save it…sometimes it’s better to just keep your mouth (and legs, for that matter) shut.

  • i don’t think so

    I have to agree with most of the posters so far…she is NO Marilyn. I think she looks silly in these pictures. Marilyn was far prettier and exuded sexuality, where Lindsay just kind of well….doesn’t

  • maría

    She can’t compare herself with Norma Jeane… She’s not even close…

  • spot

    she looks so stupid

  • MONICA

    This spread is disastarous! She looks so bad! I cannot believe that her management let her do this.

  • bejeebus

    yikes! these pix are on pretty much every popular gossip site and MAYBE 1 out of 75 comments are pro-lindsay. she’s gonna be hating life after today…..more then she already probably does. sucks to be her!

  • Susan

    Lindsay is hideous. Why would they disgrace Marilyn by creating these pictures? These pictures are an abomination.

  • lola

    Why would New York magazine even approach Lindsay to do these pictures? What were they thinking trying to mimic an iconic photo shoot with such a trashy celebrity? How is she anything like Marilyn? They should have at least picked someone credible like Scarlett Johansson. Lindsay looks gross and gives stupid comments about Monroe and Ledger. I just can’t understand why they would try to elevate her status when she keeps doing shitty moves, is a whore, and clearly lacks intelligence.

  • Kylie

    WTF? MY GRANDMA WOULD BE BETTER IF WERE SPEAKING OF
    “MARILYN MONROE” PHOTOSHOOTS.

    OH LORD, LA LOHAN JUST DONT DRINK ANYMORE AND GO SOMEWHERE. YOUR CAREER IS JUST ABOUT OVER ANYWAYS.

  • Kelly

    NY magazine is really reaching. These pictures are embarassing.
    First, Heath Ledger did not commit suicide. Ms. Lohan might want to crack open a newspaper once in awhile. To compare the two in any way, sounds ignorant.

    Second, the photos being emulated were of Marilyn Monroe at about 35-36 years old. How old is Lindsey now? MUCH younger than 36–and she certainly looks older than 36 in these pictures.

    Also, the biggest reason these pics don’t work is Lohan certainly doesn’t come near Monroe’s charisma or star power. The Stern photos have been done and done much better.

    This is embarassing for the Lohan “team” and NY mag…they all come out looking ridiculous. Bad choice.

  • Kayla

    I bet Lindsay weighs all of 110 pounds, and I don’t think Marilyn weighed that ever.

    Marilyn never went to rehab or “forgot” to wear underwear, or had pictures taken of her falling down drunk.

    Marilyn’s image now is a good model for what girls should aspire to be…not underweight with ribs poking out, but normal with more than skin and bones.

    Lindsay is not.

  • Marta

    horrible
    and pathetic

  • lola

    That’s pretty odd, as a photoshoot- why would they want to draw the comparison between these 2 troubled, lovely starlets? One of whom killed herself, and one of whom is recovering from her problems, hopefully.

  • Dee Cee

    This photoshoot is pathetic and the biggest insult to Marilyn Monroe..What’s with these actresses trying to conjure up their inner Marilyn..that weirdo Nicole Kidman did her Marilyn version for W. …Ugh!

  • isabeau

    eeeh. so wrong :( nice try, but marilyn is marilyn. :)

  • jmo

    The logic of this escapes me. A young starlet with serious drug and alcohol problems agrees to do a photo shot where she pretends to be a actress that downed a bottle of pills and vodka and killed herself in the process. Weird.

  • (((

    No way, not even close.

  • http://www.conneryweb.de/?betteln=cloudy&ref=cloudy !!!

    That’s a nasty wig.
    Next time she should try to look like Marilyn Manson …

  • lisa

    Lindsey can’t pull this off anymore. She looks too hard and beat down in the face now.

  • linds is a ho too

    This bitch Lilo needs to give it up. She is nowhere in any league close to be beautiful, much less gorgeous like Marilyn was.

    Sheesh, wtf is wrong with Linds. She’s pasty white and a sl ut taboot.

  • McLovin

    Not impressed. Nice breasts but that’s about it. Nothing erotic or sexy about these pictures. Lindsay is trying too hard to get noticed. Sometimes less is more.

    And It’s never the actresses I want to see naked doing these kind of photo shoots.
