Amid months or court-imposed rehab, lawsuits for not paying her bills, and a director’s claim that she is uninsurable, Lindsay Lohan denies that she was fired from Inferno: A Linda Lovelace Story.
TMZ reports that the Mean Girls actress has been telling her insiders that the decision to leave the picture was mutual, a much different story that what Inferno director Matthew Wilder said on Friday.
E News quoted Wilder saying, “We have stuck by Lindsay very patiently for a long time with a lot of love and support… ultimately, the impossibility of insuring her—and some other issues—have made it impossible for us to go forward.”
Impossibility of insuring her?
Translation: Lindsay Lohan is a bad risk.
The response from camp Lohan about the announcement was a classic tale of sour grapes.
Those who have talked to the 24-year old actress say she claims she was unhappy with the film’s direction and decided to drop out of the picture so she could focus on her recovery. Her “spokesfriends” also said, “She wanted them to tone down a lot of the racy scenes,” and “It wasn’t going to be good for her to play someone with substance issues when she is going through her own recovery,” (despite her recent role in Machete as stoned, half-naked killer)
Meanwhile the actress has been seen all over Rancho Mirage, and was photographed away from the Betty Ford Clinic every day this week from Nov. 15th thru the 20th.
Did you know? When Inferno director Matthew Wilder announced on Friday that Linsday Lohan has been cut from the picture, Wilder told media he was already in discussion with another actress to play the part — and expects to announce her name on Monday after details are finalized.
