Lindsay Lohan In New York Magazine

New York City's own Lindsay Lohan felt great taking her clothes off to recreate the famous ‘Last Sitting’ shots of Marilyn, taken by famed photographer Bert Stern just six weeks before she died of a drugs overdose. Lindsay said: "I didn’t have to put much thought into it. Working with Bert Stern on a Marilyn Monroe shoot was really an honor. When is that ever going to come up again? I wanted to portray the look and get it point-on as much as I could, to bring it back to life. I was comfortable with it, the nudity and everything." In the shots, Lindsay wears a bleached blonde wig and is seen posing with a series of see-through chiffon scarves, a diamond necklace and sprawled naked on a bed.The actress, who confessed she panicked and did 250 stomach crunches the night right before the photo shoot in a bid to get her stomach as flat as possible. She also revealed she has always been a big fan of the iconic star. She said: "If you saw my house, I have a lot of Marilyn stuff. I’ve got this painting of her in my house. It’s eerie because it’s a picture and it’s kind of cartoony, and there’s a big bottle of pills next to her, and they’ve fallen over." Photographer Bert Stern, who originally photographed Marilyn 46 years ago, added: "It was very similar, deja vu you might say, like revisiting an old street." Lindsay also spoke about the recent death of close friend Heath Ledger, who died of an accidental drug overdose last month. She added to New York magazine: "It’s also tragic what just recently happened to someone else. Marilyn and Heath are both prime examples of what this industry can do to someone. But I sure as hell wouldn’t let it happen to me."
