Yesterday morning, before it became really official that Lindsay Lohan had checked herself into Promises in Malibu, the news emerged that she was at least official for one thing -- her new movie, Poor Things, co-starring Shirley MacLaine and Olympia Dukakis.
I imagine the producers probably would have liked to work the timing better. The film is scheduled to start filming this week, which may be difficult seeing as Linds is in rehab, but all details as to what that will mean for the movie are still pretty vague. She sounds like a bit (or a lot) of a liability, but perhaps some people want the press. As for Lindsay's time in rehab, her publicist finally issued an official statement:
"Lindsay admitted herself to an intensive medical rehabilitation facility on Memorial Day. Because this is a medical matter, it is our hope that the press will appreciate the seriousness of the situation and respect the privacy of Lindsay as well as the other patients receiving treatment at the facility."
Official statements are good, but hopefully Linds can actually find a way to get healthy this time. Looks like she needs it.
