The big reveal (so to speak) was scheduled for Dec. 15, but Lindsay Lohan’s Playboy cover has leaked online a week early. The actress had scheduled a sit-down with Ellen DeGeneres on her daytime show next week to discuss the cover — and, no doubt, her recent troubles at the L.A. County morgue — but, now, all that awaits us is the spread (again, so to speak. Sorry).

Those of you who still recoil at the thought of seeing the girl from The Parent Trap in the flesh, never fear: The cover, which you can see over on The Insider, is relatively safe for work. (At least, it’s no worse than what Kristin Chenoweth wore to the American Country Awards earlier this week.) Question is: Is the Playboy cover enough to make you want to hop to the store to nab a copy, or was Lohan’s nude New York photoshoot from 2008 enough for you? Is it gross that I’m even asking these questions? Yes. Yes it is.
