Lohan’s issue was  to be released in January, but Playboy founder decided to push it forward.

He explained why via Twitter: “Because of the interest and the internet leak, we’re releasing the Lindsay Lohan issue early. Lindsay Lohan was the top search name on the internet yesterday. Hot Hot Hot,”

Lohan, understood to have received a cool $1million to strip of, pays homage to Hollywood legend Marilyn Monore in her naked shoot, donning red-lipstick and flowing blonde curls.

The 25-year old also talks about her sex life in the mag, confessing: “Sex and sexuality are a part of nature, and I go along with nature. I think Marilyn Monroe once said that.”

She added: “I certainly agree with her…Knowing yourself and your body is so important because it gives you confidence, and in life, women need confidence.”

Meanwhile, the hacker responsible for revealing Lohan’s Playboy cover says he didn’t actually steal the shots and that he instead found them on peer-to-peer file sharing websites.

The hacker – who refused to give his name – told Fox News: “I just pieced it together. All I cared about is how I got them. When I’ve done it before, Playboy sent a e-mail to take down the links, and I do.”
