Just days after Lindsay Lohan's Playboy shoot leaked online, the publication has decided to post it on its website, at www.playboy.com/lohan.

TMZ.com reported early Friday that Playboy was concerned that the leak will hurt sales of what they expect to be the best-selling issue of the year. Late Friday, Playboy boss Hugh Hefner tweeted: "Because of the interest & the Internet leak, we're releasing the Lindsay Lohan issue early." The magazine will still hit newsstands on Friday, Dec. 16.

Uncensored photos of Lohan's shoot, which evokes Marilyn Monroe's December 1953 pictorial for the magazine, appeared online Friday, including on PerezHilton.com.

The actress is slated to appear on Ellen on Thursday, Dec. 15. DeGeneres snagged the only interview Lohan has agreed to do during the on-sale period of the issue.
