LINDSAY Lohan's nude Playboy shoot was inspired by Marilyn Monroe.

The troubled actress - who was released from jail on Monday after serving just four-and-a half hours of a 30-day sentence - has posed naked for the iconic men's magazine and its founder Hugh Hefner says it pays homage to her idol - who died in August 1962 aged 36 from a suspected drugs overdose.

He told 'The Insider': "It's a classic tribute inspired by the original Tom Kelly nude pictorial of Marilyn Monroe, a portion of which was the original playmate in the very first issue of Playboy."

Hugh also confirmed Lindsay, 25, bared all for the shoot but it was done in a "classy" way.

He said: "Oh, yes, she's naked. And classy, very classy."

The 'Mean Girls' star was paid almost $1 million to strip off for the publication, but she is due to re-shoot some photos later this week.

Lindsay was initially offered $750,000 by Playboy, but turned it down until she was given a higher price.

Previous stars who have posed for the magazine include Pamela Anderson, La Toya Jackson and Drew Barrymore.
