Lindsay Lohan is feeling the call of nature these days.
The star, who poses nude in Playboy in a Marilyn Monroe-inspired layout, says that was the simple reason she decided to bare all for the men's magazine.
The nearly seven-figure payout probably didn't hurt, either.
"Sex and sexuality are a part of nature, and I go along with nature," Lohan told Playboy. "I think Marilyn Monroe once said that. I certainly agree with her."
To guys everywhere, the Lindsay Lohan Playboy pictures are either arousing or amusing. But to the "actress" herself, they are completely empowering.
"It’s a very male-dominated world we live in to begin with, so knowing yourself and being comfortable with your body is an important thing for me as a woman."
Lohan, who is vacationing with her sister Ali Lohan in Hawaii, puts great importance on "knowing yourself and your body because it gives you confidence."
Amid a slew of legal problems that have landed her in jail over the last few years, says she now knows how to make better decisions with her brain, too."Looking back, I probably would have listened to and taken more advice from the people whom I admire and would have followed through with it more."
"My stubbornness at 18 and 19 years old got in the way," she adds.
"During the past five years, I’ve learned that time flies faster than you think, and you only live once. You have to learn from your mistakes, live your dreams and be accountable," says one of the least accountable people to have ever lived.
The Playboy spread will be released early (it's now coming out late next week) after the cover and some of the inside photos were leaked online.
