In Hollywood, stubbornness and a refusal to give up can completely make a career. But when that career has been made and broken roughly 1,000 times already and someone offers you a chance to… I don’t know, not re-make it again, but to at least not die penniless and have people look at your face in 30 second increments, you should probably go for it, right? Well, Lindsay Lohan thinks so. She recently turned down a Burger King commercial because she still thinks she’s better than that, and she’s having none of it.
From Page Six:
The flame-haired actress was asked to wear a Spicy Chicken Fries box, smoke a chicken fry like a cigarette, and vamp a “spicy” monologue.
“We were gob-smacked. It was making fun of her issues,” an insider told me.
Lohan and her managers at Untitled Talent suggested some alternate concepts to no avail.
Another source said Lohan was too demanding. “She wanted creative control,” said my source. Exasperated reps for Burger King said, “Forget about it.”
“She’s broke, sleeping at different guys’ apartments, but she thinks she’s Elizabeth Taylor,” the source said.
I mean, look – does it sound humiliating to wear a chicken fries box? Sure, fine. But in what way is that “making fun of her issues”? Does she have some weird issue with fast food chicken? I’m just confused. Also, LOL to her wanting “creative control”. Of a Burger King commercial. Just think about that for a while.
To be honest, I feel like we’re going to end up with Amy Winehouse situation on our hands, as sad as I am to say that. I don’t for one second think Lindsay is clean and sober, she had no money, the industry is shunning her, and as sad as I am to say it and hope that I’m wrong, I don’t see thinks turning out well for her. Especially since she’s clearly having delusions of grandeur. Elizabeth Taylor! Christ.
