Lindsay Signs Onto New Project, Promptly Enters Rehab

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.

she looks so pretty... and maybe rehab will help with the filming. at least she won't be exhausted and stuff when she's on set because of partying the night before/morning of.

She has not had a court date yet. Her driving could still be restricted at that point. Remember, Paris is going to jail only because she violated parole. I am shocked that any studio would still be willing to work with Lindsay given her reputation. There are hundreds of women just as pretty and as talented as Lindsay. She certainly is not looking like the hottest woman in the world these days.

Here is something my "friend" on myspace posted. He was supposed to work on the movie "Poor Things" with Shirley McClain, Olympia Dukakis (sp?) & Lindsay Lohan. I can't express how much this whole thing just pisses me off. She should loose her license just like any regular person would. She could have killed someone. But I doubt anything will change, nothing will happen to her. Not to mention all of the other people, like this guy, that counted on her to be an adult and do her "job" so they can do there job, so there families can get fed. http://blog.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=blog&friendID=102409815

I sense her checking into rehab was at the advice of her attorney so that she could avoid any jail time for the DUI. I'm a paralegal at a criminal defense law firm and our clients do it all the time. Too bad most of them come out and use/drink immediately and the cycle repeats.

Lindsey wanted to be actress. She stopped acting at like 11 because she wanted to. Then she started acting at 17 because she wanted to.

I hope she takes rehad seriously because she really needs it. She's not even 21 and is already an alcoholic. Hopefully this time at rehab will actually change her.

Rehab again, huh? This type of sh!t is what happens when a child from a young age is pimped out for attention and forced to be something they are not and under the control of a gazillion people. She probably never had a normal childhood and was famous through her teen years. She's never had a "normal" life. Even though I cant stand her, I can understand that. I guess everything she has been doing has been her rebelling and trying to get her childhood/teenage years back or at all..Same thing with Britany. Her parents primped her up and pimped her out on a stage since she was tiny, she's got people in her face her whole life telling her who to be to make everyone happy/money, including her parents. Of course she flips out! They've been controled by sooo many more people than the rest of us as kids. People's lives(paychecks, jobs...) depended on their success and Im sure they were told that every freaking day, while at the same time having normal kid activities snatched away by crazy film schedules, classes, filming location jumps, performances-the list goes on and on.... That's waaay to much pressure to grow up under. By trying to gain control of their lives, they overdo it and lose control. But I can understand...Forcing someone to grow up too fast will cause some to retract when they hit a certain age to get back what was "stolen" from them. I dont know...just my crazy analogy..I always do this..lol

I am so happy to hear that Lindsey is in rehab because she needs it and so do her friends/ associates.

I just can't help but feel that this rehab stint is to avoid jail time. Oh, wait, but celebs rarely go to jail. Anyway, I understand what it's like to battle with addictions, but I really don't think this is a sincere effort to get clean. She's just trying to avoid trouble.

She's got problems and she'll get jobs because she's got potential and she's got a lot of publicity.

perhaps she should go to a rehab facility for non-celebrities...instead of "Promises" in Malibu. i'm sure that place is like a vacation...and when she gets out, she'll be back to normal

no rehab can help her out..she will be sober for a short period of time when she gets out but she'll be back to her old ways in no time..

She didn't take rehab seriously the first time. I truly think that Promises and Wonderland are not the places to go for people that are actually serious about getting sober. They just catered to her last time.

It really bothers me that people say she is "such a good actress". No she isn't...what has she done that was "wow". Mean girls maybe, but that was a good ROLE, not "amazing acting". There are too many truly good actresses looking for work for her to be called a good one.

When she is in rehab, people need to stop catering to her every need, and force her to take care of herself and take responsibility.

How nice that celebs go to rehab and don't do jail time. That's probably what will happen with her. If only everyone else was able to do the same. Why does she still get movie roles? Her movies usually fail at the box office. She's not a good actress. She is pretty, though.
