Lindsay Lohan's father refuses to look at nude photos of his daughter posing as Marilyn Monroe.
Michael Lohan is determined not to see the pictures of his 21-year-old daughter in the new issue of New York magazine, but accepts her decision to agree to the shoot.
"I'm not going to look at the photos - that's my daughter," Lohan said. "But Lindsay is an adult, and she knows the direction she wants to take her career."
However, Lohan did recognizes the honor for Lindsay in being asked to recreate Monroe's famous 'Last Sitting' photos by the original photographer, Bert Ster.
"The fact that the photographer Bert Stern who did Marilyn Monroe's pictures would ask Lindsay to re-create them - that's an amazing thing," Lohan said to Us Weekly magazine.
"I pray there are no parallels to her and Marilyn Monroe's destiny," Lohan said, in hopes that Lindsay doesn't fully follow in Monroe's footsteps. the blonde iconic star died of a drugs overdose aged 36. in 1962.
Lindsay's mother Dinah however, lends her support, saying the photos were tastefully done.
"I respect the photographer as an artist, so I look at them artistically," Dinah said. "For him to call Lindsay 46 years later and to say can you recreate these photos is an honour."
Dinah told People magazine, "I looked at it as art, and as Lindsay doing a character. So I don't look at them like it's Playboy - she was being a character. If you look at it that way, you can look at it as a mother."
