Lindsay's Mom: Nude Marilyn Shoot Was Tasteful Art

Posted: Updated:

Lindsay Lohan's mom Dina has spoken out on the new photospread her daughter did for the new issue of New York Magazine. Dina told People that it's fantastic and that her daughter has always been a big fan of Marilyn Monroe, whose last nude photoshoot was recreated by Bert Stern with Lindsay.

"It was very tastefully done," Dina tells PEOPLE of the photos... "I respect the photographer as an artist, so I look at them artistically. For him to call Lindsay 46 years later and to say can you recreate these photos is an honor. I looked at it as art, and as Lindsay doing a character. So I don't look at them like it's Playboy; she was being a character. So if you look at it that way, you can look at it as a mother."

And Dina adds that had the photos been inappropriate, Lindsay's sister Ali would not have visited the set. "Trust me," Dina tells PEOPLE, "I wouldn't have sent my 14-year-old to the set [if the shoot was in bad taste]. And obviously Lindsay wouldn't do anything with her sister there, that was risqué."

Dina also revealed how Lindsay got ready for the shoot. "Lindsay did 250 crunches before because she was nervous since she had never done anything like that before," Dina said.
