So most of you disagreed with me when I said that I thought ‘Liz & Dick’ was actually pretty likable, and some of you (well, not *you*, per se, but Twitter people) actually went as far as … well, practically eviscerating Lindsay for trying her … well, for trying really hard in her latest film endeavor. With that in mind, I’ve got some good news for those of you who who are keen on hating on what she does on the premise of who she is: she’s devastated. That’s right, you heard—devastated. A source close to Lindsay had this to say about all of the negative feedback that’s come in over the last twelve hours from the first public viewing of ‘Liz & Dick’:
“Lindsay is devastated by the response to the film. She has got used to all the negative press around her personal life but this is the first time she has experienced it about her work. No matter how bad things were going for her personally, everyone would always agree that she was a great actress. … Lindsay has already read her own press. She knew the script wasn’t strong but thought she would bring the role of Elizabeth to life. This is particularly heartbreaking as her acting was the only thing in her life that she knew was real. Now she is doubting that, too.”
But this “only thing she thought was real” thing? Well. That’s an indicator of someone deluded beyond all belief right there, and also someone so far up their own ass for their own good, to boot—but hopefully, if this all really is the case, it’ll jar girlfriend right out of the self-induced ‘Parent Trap’ reverie she put herself in all those years ago and maybe—just maybe—she can work her way out of it and see what a wreck things really have been all this time (except for ‘Liz & Dick’; it’s the most amount of right that she’s done in a long, long time). Here’s what Michael Lohan had to say about his daughter’s performance:
“Due to the content, I had to step away from a lot of the scenes, but regardless of what some of these so-called critics, who don’t have an ounce of talent in their bones say, Lindsay proved that she is an amazing actress. This was a different role for her at a difficult time of her life. She still has what it takes to be the Lindsay Lohan that is one of Hollywood’s top actresses.”
I know we’ve ragged on Lindsay a lot in the past, and still continue to do so, although more of it’s tongue-in-cheek as of late, but God. Never have we ever said that we hate her or that she’s entirely worthless like so many other media outlets have, because seriously, when all’s said and done, she is still a person, am I right? And no, not at all worthless. Suffice it to say I haven’t forgotten all of the f-ckery that Lindsay’s created in her own life, but damn. Cut a girl a break, maybe. Or, at the very least, help her cut herself a break somehow or another*.
*Preferably with nothing that has anything to do with jewelry heists, former lesbian lovers, or family matters. Let’s be fair, now.
