It sounds like he may have found his muse.
That was a really interesting read. Having acted a little bit, I have never seen anything like those meltdowns. A few temper tantrums, but nothing like this. I cant imagine trying to focus and really be in the moment of the scene with all that chaos going on after "cut" was yelled.
Things keep going from bad to worse for La Lohan on the public relations front. In a recent public opinion poll, Lindsay was found to be less popular than Congress. When you consider that the list of things found MORE popular than Congress includes cockroaches, root canal, colonoscopies, the NFL replacement refs and Nickelback, you get an idea of how disliked she is these days.
That poor multi millionaire is disliked. DAMNIT !!
America has latched on to this young beauty with the strength of vice grip. She is the "it" girl, plastered on magazines, TV, bathroom walls, etc.http://www.hometheaterforum.com/content/type/61/id/173703/
Beauty? It may be time for an eye exam.
There's nothing wrong with her eye sight, AFAIK. Cees
The Canyons is getting rejected at film festivals.
Why can't she drive well?
"Oh, it's not the speed so much. She probably just shouldn't have drunken all that cough syrup this morning..."
Because she's a drunk and drug addict.
THIS is absolutely amazing...
They played the That '70s Show episode with her last night. The height of her hotness. What a waste.
The height of her hotness? That's like saying you're the world's tallest midget.
Anyone who doesn't think that Lindsay Lohan was ever hot has a very short memory.
As for that movie, I've seen ads for it, but I didn't realize that Ho-Cake Vince directed it!
It's pretty bizarre that Schrader cast Lohan, unless he thought that was the best way to garner free publicity for The Canyons. I find it impossible to be believe that he couldn't find someone at least as capable who wouldn't cause problems -- Schrader should have been able to attract a bevy of very talented unknowns just with his name, right? Maybe the last thing he saw was A Prairie Home Companion and didn't think anything had changed with Lohan since 2006.
Lohan has nothing on Chet Baker in the drug abuse department, yet he lived to 59 and never did overdose (he "fell" out of a window). So, lets not write her off just yet. Really, when you think about it -- 90% of her's and say Robert Downey Jr.'s problems stem from living in Los Angeles instead of New York City -- in NYC they'd be taking cabs or limos and no matter how bombed out of their minds they were, they wouldn't be getting arrested for drunk driving, and if they did get busted for something else, they wouldn't already be on probation for all the drunk driving.
Entertainers with substance abuse problems should keep their carriers in NY, and if they have to do a movie or appearance in Hollywood they should hire a 24/7 driver. Not sure why this is a difficult concept, but maybe it's all the substances clouding their minds...
*From Wikipedia on Downey -- note again the thing that put him on the arrest/parole/probation/violated merry-goround was a moving violation. Now sure, you could argue that Downey was "saved" by all his arrests -- but arguably he did his best work, including his Oscar nominated Chaplin during his drug years and was never late/unprofessional at work (unless we count not showing up due to being arrested).
Since crickets have been chirping in this thread for a couple of months...
Here's an image I found while looking for something else:
Lohan has made some really catastrophic choices, and should be held accountable. But, you know, she is a product of us. We love putting attractive young girls in the spotlight so that we can fantasize about them. We may not admit it, but we love it when their privacy is compromised and we get all sorts of sordid photos and information from the paparazzi and the gossip columns and so-called "news" channels. We wouldn't want this happening to us, but we figure the Lohan's of the world deserve it because 1) they're richer than we'll ever be 2) they've had their much-more-than-fifteen-minutes-of-fame 3) they do things many of the rest of us do for which we either haven't yet been caught or for which we received harsher judgments 4) we are a society that thrives on creating idols and then tearing them down when we tire of them -- the flavor-of-the-week thing. I don't condone Lohan's behavior, but, as they say, it takes a village to bring up a child. I would go a step further and say that it takes a society to bring up a child. We have failed the Lohan's of the world. But we won't admit to that anymore than we own up to the tragedies incurred during Manifest Destiny.
If we insist Lindsay be accountable, so then should we be.
