Lindsay Lohan's nude Playboy cover was leaked online on Wednesday, despite the troubled star planning on unveiling the tasteful spread on The Ellen DeGeneres Show next week.

Lohan was planning on sitting down with DeGeneres on Dec. 15 to promote the nude pictorial, but celebrity news Web site In Case You Didn't Know published the much-anticipated cover.

The 25-year old Mean Girls star has had several run-ins with the law of late, but is hoping that posing naked for the iconic magazine could revive her increasingly irrelevant career.

The pictorial is absolutely fantastic and very tasteful, and will be accompanied by an interview that will let readers see another side of Lindsay, her rep said.

The spread is very classy, according to Playboy boss Hugh Hefner, featuring the star channeling a very famous pose.

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, Hefner told syndicated show The Insider in November.
