If Hugh Hefner sees something he wants, he likes to get it. And  that includes having actress Lindsay Lohan go fully naked in Playboy magazine.

It seems Lohan, 25, was a bit hesitant about baring it all for the world to see in Playboy.

I think it was essentially mama and the folks around her that kept pushing for less nudity, Hefner told E! News. And I said, 'We're doing a nude pictorial here. We're going to do it in a very classy way and we're going to do it in a way in which it will not be forgotten.'

Hefner had the bright idea of having Lohan's spread be a tribute to her idol, Marilyn Monroe's iconic Playboy pictures. He won out and so Lohan was sold.

In the issue that is about to hit the newsstands, a fresh-faced Lohan can be seen in bright red lipstick, with blonde hair, posing against a red velvet background with a sexy pair of black pumps.

The pictorial and the concept for the pictorial came from me, Hefner told E! She had done semi-nudes before. I wanted to do something that would be memorable. So what is more natural, since she is a huge fan of Marilyn Monroe, than do something that is a tribute to the red velvet, Tom Kelly photo shoot of Marilyn Monroe that was our Rey first Playmate?

Hefner confirmed that he had to push for Lohan to go nude and said he is happy with the finished results.

I think it was accomplished beyond anything I could have possibly imagined, he told E! News. People will not forget this pictorial.

Though he reportedly paid Lohan $1 million for the shoot, Hefner told E! News that he was a bit worried when someone suggested having Lohan on the cover.

It really came as a surprise to me, Hefner said. I kind of had mixed emotions about it initially, and it turned into something bigger than life.

Hefner said his worry stemmed from the fact that he wasn't certain where the actress was at in her life.

After ordering a reshoot of the first photos that he said were unflattering, it seems Hefner had struck gold.

Since Lindsay Lohan's spread and cover photo were leaked on the Web approximately a week ago, she has been a top search term ever since.

The actress' leaked shoot has also sparked the search for other Playboy shoots such as Kim Kardashian, Charlize Theron and Drew Barrymore.

Some have said because the spread has leaked on the Internet, Hefner may not make a huge profit from the Lohan issue. However, only time will tell.
