Hugh Hefner Had 'Mixed Emotions' About Lindsay Lohan Spread

"She's blonde and she has giant boobs but…then there's everything else. I don't know what to do! * sobs * I don’t know what to do…"

I think that pretty much sums up every straight man's perception of Lindsay right now.

Hugh Hefner approved Lindsay Lohan's anticipated Playboy photo shoot, but the t-tty mogul now admits, he wasn't sure about it initially.

"It really came as a surprise to me," Hefner told E! News. "I kind of had mixed emotions about it initially, and then it turned into something bigger than life."

Turns out, the photo shoot was pretty damn good. I mean, it's not like Hef was going to let her do her usual pose—falling down in front of a nightclub—but the pics are still really glamorous.

"I wasn't quite sure where she was at in her life, obviously," Hef said, smiling. "It depends on whether it's Tuesday or Thursday."

Hefner confirmed that the reason he wanted Lindsay to reshoot her photos is because he wasn't initially satisfied with the style of the spread. According to E! News, he found it "unflattering and not as polished-looking as he wanted.

"The pictorial and the concept for the pictorial came from me," he explained. "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 Kelley photo shot of Marilyn Monroe that was our very first Playmate?"

Hugh then said that Dina Lohan didn't want his daughter posing totally naked, but he convinced her it'd be okay.

"I think it was essentially mama and the folks around her that kept pushing for less nudity," Hefner remarked. "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

Oh, that's a great way of easing a mother's fears. "Don't worry, people will have your daughter's naked body burned into their minds for decades."
