Britney Spears graces the cover of Australian Cosmopolitan magazine's December 2008 issue.  The photo is hot and according to our friends at TMZ, it's five years old.  The image was lifted from a 2003 Esquire magazine photo shoot.

This isn't the first publication to use deceptively old photos.  Check out Britney's OK magazine's April 2008 cover here.   The photo was from a 2003 Glamour photo shoot.

Check out the Esquire shoot photos below.
