We can understand his hesitation, but we're sure he's pretty grateful for making the choice that he did now!
Hugh Hefner recently opened up about Lindsay Lohan's nude pictorial in Playboy, and revealed that despite being unsure of whether or not he wanted to involve himself with her, given her, ahem, 'erratic' behavior, he's ultimately very happy with the way everything turned out!
"It really came as a surprise to me. I kind of had mixed emotions about it initially, and then it turned into something bigger than life. I wasn't quite sure where she was at in her life, obviously. It depends on whether it's Tuesday or Thursday. The pictorial and the concept for the pictorial came from me. 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? I think it was essentially mama and the folks around her that kept pushing for less nudity. 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.' I think it was accomplished beyond anything I could have possibly imagined. People will not forget this pictorial. It became a stocking stuffer!"
Ha! Everyone knows that the true testament to success is making it as a stocking stuffer!
