Speaking highly of his latest celebrity spread, Hugh Hefner says Lindsay Lohan's nude Playboy cover shoot is worth all the buzz it's received.
While talking to "The Insider," the Hef gushed about the upcoming piece, telling. "It's a classic tribute inspired by the original Tom Kelly nude pictorial of Marilyn Monroe, a portion of which was the original playmate which was in the original issue of Playboy."
Looking to be quite pleased with the final product herself, LiLo's rep told press, "The pictorial is absolutely fantastic and very tasteful, and will be accompanied by an interview that will let readers see another side of Lindsay."
Having shot the photos on two separate occasions to earn Hefner's approval, the OK'd version of the pics are set to appear in the January/February 2012 issue of the magazine.
