You’ve likely seen Lindsay Lohan’s leaked Playboy photos by now, so Playboy has decided to release their January/February issue online a few days earlier.

Lindsay Lohan, who poses nude in Playboy in a Marilyn Monroe-inspired layout, says she’s learned much from the screen goddess.

“Sex and sexuality are a part of nature, and I go along with nature,” Lohan says. “I think Marilyn Monroe once said that. I certainly agree with her … Knowing yourself and your body is so important because it gives you confidence, and in life, women need confidence.”

Lohan, who is vacationing with her sister Ali in Hawaii, puts great importance on “knowing yourself and your body because it gives you confidence.”

“It’s a very male-dominated world to begin with, so knowing yourself and being comfortable with your body is an important thing for me as a woman,” she says.

She definitely doesn’t understand the public’s obsession with her — something she has dealt with since she was a teenager.

“I have no idea why there is this fascination with everything I do,” she says. “I suppose it is all part of this trend of people wanting to know every single detail of a celebrity’s life.”

Hoping to escape from the public eye for a few days, Lohan jetted over to Hawaii for some R&R before the Playboy publicity heated up.

She was spotted watching a surfing competition with friends and her sister, Ali, on Friday. Lohan, however, is due back in LA this for a probation progress hearing Dec. 14.

For her many legal problems, Lohan says, “Looking back, I probably would have listened to and taken more advice from the people whom I admire and would have followed through with it more.”

But, she adds, “My stubbornness at 18 and 19 years old got in the way. During the past five years, I’ve learned that time flies faster than you think, and because you only live once you have to learn from your mistakes, live your dreams and be accountable.”

Lindsay reportedly received $1m to bare all in the Marilyn Monroe-inspired layout.

The hacker who claims he’s responsible for leaking Lindsay Lohan’s top secret Playboy layout says he didn’t actually steal the shots, he simply found them on peer-to-peer file sharing websites.

The pirate, who refused to give his name, told Foxnews.com he tracked the pictures down after they were either hacked or stolen and uploaded to a file-sharing website based in Russia.

The hacker admitted: ‘I just pieced it together,’ once the photos spread to peer-to-peer file sharing sites.

‘All I cared about is how I got them,’ the digital pirate said.

Lohan is expected to return to Los Angeles on Monday, the same day that Playboy says it will release a non-nude image from Lindsay’s photo shoot.

The Mean Girls star is scheduled to return to court in L.A. on Wednesday for a probation update. [via Huffington Post, People and The Daily Mail (UK)]
