Lindsay Lohan is channeling Marilyn Monroe -- again -- for a high-profile magazine shoot. This time, it's Playboy.

Lohan's publicist, Steve Honig, confirmed reports she's posing in the nude, telling The Famous in a statement: "Lindsay has completed a successful photo shoot for Playboy magazine and will be on the cover of the January/February issue, which hits newsstands in late December. The pictorial is absolutely fantastic and very tasteful, and will be accompanied by an interview that will let readers see another side of Lindsay."

Meanwhile, Hugh Hefner spilled more details on the Lohan photo spread in an interview with "The Insider," revealing the actress went fully naked as part of a "classy" homage to Monroe.

"It's a classic tribute inspired by the original Tom Kelly nude pictorial of Marilyn Monroe, a portion of which ... was in the original issue of Playboy ," said Hef.

Lohan previously posed pantless as the legendary blonde -- one of her role models -- on the cover of New York magazine in 2008. She recreated Monroe's final nude photo shoot, called "The Last Sitting," photographed in 1962 by Bert Stern.

"If you saw my house … I have a lot of Marilyn stuff," Lohan told New York at the time.

"Here is a woman who is giving herself to the public," she added. "She's saying, 'Look, you've taken a lot from me, so why don't I give it to you myself.'  She's taking control back."

The 25-year-old troublemaker won a lucky break yesterday: after countless hours of courtroom drama, Lohan only served four-and-a-half hours of her 30-day jail sentence for probation violation. The reason for her early exit: overcrowding.
