Lindsay Lohan is doing really well in rehab, which is great but isn’t exactly a career boost. A career boost would be if she got a prime big budget movie role (for a change) in a huge film everyone would see. And Lohan thinks that film is Fifty Shades Of Grey. If any of this is at all true. I think we’ve been hearing rumors about this since April, and Lohan’s never confirmed nor denied this desire.
From Naughty But Nice Rob:
Lindsay Lohan is still completing her court-ordered rehab. But after she emerges from the 90-day program, Lindsay is planning a major comeback.
“She is going to clear house. She wants rid of all the bad influencs in her life and she plans to throw herself into work,” a friend of the actress tells Naughty But Nice Rob. “She has changed, she really has changed and wants to prove it.”
The actress, who famously said she would have an Oscar one day, just might. The project that Lindsay is now pursuing is the lead in ’Fifty Shades of Grey.’
“Lindsay needs a big high profile role. She needs to be part of a movie everyone wants to see and thinks ‘Fifty’ is a role she would be perfect for,” adds one friend. “She has read the book several times and knows this is a character that she can play. She wants to be part of something iconic, something that will live forever like Harry Potter or The Hunger Games. Now, she thinks she has found it.”
What is up with everyone wanting a piece of this movie? It’s basically porn, right? I’ve never read the book, but it’s poorly written porn, isn’t it? So how would the movie be anything but a disaster and why would Lohan think it would help her?
It seems like a character [Christian Grey] I could have a lot of fun with. I’ve heard really mixed responses about it, like, ‘Oh, it’s a cheesy Twilight wannabe… [but] I think it could be fun. I feel like it could be a really cool, fun role to work on. [But] As I understand, the rumors [for Christian] are some guy who’s on a TV show on USA [Matt Bomer], some model dudes, and Ryan Gosling.
At least he knows his place.
