So remember how Lindsay Lohan was picked up for a role in Scary Movie 5? Well, naturally, Lindsay’s a loser, and can’t commit to even the simplest of shit. According to Page Six, Lindsay was almost sued for not showing up for production on time, among other contract violations. From Page Six:
Dimension Films signed Lohan to play a cameo in the horror spoof opposite Charlie Sheen. But over the past two weeks — as the date for filming approached — Lohan disappeared, blew off rehearsals, missed her flight to the set and even bizarrely claimed she had walking pneumonia. We’re told the troubled starlet “freaked out” after seeing the script was poking fun at her. At the 11th hour, Lohan did report for work, however only after she was threatened with a lawsuit by a Hollywood legal eagle and a private jet was sent to pick her up.
So how must it feel to work on the set of a movie where everyone involved knows that you’re a big, fat loser who has to be threatened to show up for work? You can’t tell me that being in that position doesn’t make you feel like a stupid ass. And it gets better—not only did Lindsay almost bail altogether because of a scripting issue, she didn’t show up for any of the wardrobe meetings, either. You’d think that free clothes (even if they were free for a limited time) would be the hook in that opportunity right there, but no. There must have been some kind of anti-theft device attached to Lindsay’s wardrobe, and when she found out she was all, “Meh, I’m just not interested. Pick whatever.” More about Lindsay’s fast descent into permanent Loserdom:
“Lindsay missed every meeting she had for the film, including script reads and wardrobe meetings,” said a Hollywood insider. “Then she missed her flight to Atlanta on Sunday to shoot the movie. The producers had been getting signs Friday that she was a mess, and would not be fit to work.”
Last, she’s signed on to kiss Charlie Sheen, who’s also in the movie. Let me repeat that: she’s signed on to kiss Charlie Sheen, who’s also in the movie. And Charlie Sheen, of all people, is “worried” that Lindsay might not be able to “do the scene.” Talk about a rock and a hard place, huh?
