Michael Lohan is Pretending He Has Standards Again

Michael Lohan is out making public statements about his daughter again and this time he’s got some career advice, too. When asked by Us Weekly what he thought about his daughter’s plans to play Deep Throat star Linda Lovelace in an upcoming movie, Michael went off:

“Oh, I don’t even want to go there! What do you think? Come on! Seriously – why? She did Parent Trap, Confessions [of a Teenage Drama Queen], Freaky Friday, Mean Girls, Just My Luck and Herbie. And you know what? Georgia Rule was a fantastic movie. People don’t give her credit for it, but that was one of her best acting jobs. But I mean, she started with Parent Trap and now this? Why? Who makes these decisions? If I was there, it would never happen, believe me. There’s no way to resurrect your career after that. So many people have come to me with offers for Lindsay for great family-style films, general audience kind of releases, but you know … whatever.”

Well, well! Looks like someone has a Dadager in addition to her Momager! Too bad Michael wasn’t around to doll out this sage advice when his daughter was whipping her SUV up PCH while jacked up on coke and booze, huh? Between us though, I think he’s right. This movie seems like a last-stop for Lohan rather than another jumping off point. If homegirl can manage to keep her shit together while filming, everything she does has promise. We can’t forget that behind that vodka breath and those leggings is a pretty solid actress.

  • Well, that’s the big question Michael – why aren’t you there for any of your children? Why are you about a year behind on child support? Why did you go to prison repeatedly? Why are you unable to avoid constant lawsuits with your ex-girlfriends?

    In other words, why are you a chronically irresponsible, litigious, ex- criminal? And what do your parents think about your conduct, if they have survived the repeated shocks of having a son who’s utterly incapable of acting like a mature adult? If they are living, at least they don’t make a living selling information about you.

    Why don’t you sell a few voice-mails and raise some money for your other children instead of complaining about how wonderful Lindsay’s life would be if you controlled her? You had your chance to be a parent and not just a sperm (and trouble) donor. Go away.
