The cover for the upcoming issue of Playboy magazine featuring starlet Lindsay Lohan's buzzed-about pictorial has leaked on the Internet a week before it was set for TV sneak preview.

The magazine's January/February issue's cover features Lohan in the nude, strategically straddling a chair shaped like Playboy's iconic bunny logo to cover her private parts. In the cover image that was leaked Wednesday, Lohan channels Marilyn Monroe, with platinum blond hair and crimson red lipstick. The cover text simply reads: LINDSAY.

The leaked cover of the gentleman's magazine comes a full week before Lohan is scheduled to reveal a sneak preview of the cover and pictorial on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" on Dec. 15.

"The pictorial is absolutely fantastic and very tasteful, and will be accompanied by an interview that will let readers see another side of Lindsay," Lohan's publicist Steve Honig said in a recent statement.

Lohan was reportedly paid $1 million for the shoot.

Her Playboy cover comes after a tumultuous year for the "Mean Girls" actress, who spent four hours in jail in early November for probation violation stemming from a shoplifting conviction.

Lohan joins Drew Barrymore, Daryl Hannah and Denise Richards as top Hollywood starlets who have posed for the magazine.
