Lindsay Lohan's formal probation is over -- finally

Lindsay Lohan and Shawn Chapman Holley

It took five years, but Lindsay Lohan has finally put her DUI conviction in the rear-view mirror.

"She has done everything this court has asked of her," Judge Stephanie Sautner said Thursday during a probation progress hearing that ended with Lohan declared done on the 2007 matter and on informal probation only regarding her jewelry theft case from last year.

"The only terms for you are for you to obey all laws," Sautner told Lohan at L.A.'s Airport Courthouse, L.A. Now reported. "You don't need to come to court anymore." If all goes well, that informal probation will end in May 2014.

Lohan had words for the judge as well: "I just wanted to thank you for being fair. What you've done has really opened a lot of doors for me."

While Sautner stopped herself short of delivering a lecture, she did advise Lohan to "live your life in a more mature way. Stop the nightclubbing and focus on your work."

With solid marks from her probation officer backing her up, according to TMZ, Lohan scored a Canadian work permit Wednesday allowing her to do "Liz and Dick," an upcoming Lifetime film in which she'll play a young Elizabeth Taylor.

She told reporters outside the courthouse that she did in fact have plans to mark the occasion -- by having dinner with her younger sister, Ali.

Lindsay Lohan calls alleged hit-and-run incident 'a complete lie'

Lindsay Lohan

Lindsay Lohan said Wednesday that allegations she'd been involved in a hit-and-run in the wee hours were, at the very least, overblown.

"Scrape? This is all a complete lie," Lohan wrote in an extended Twitter post. "I've been at community service. Last night, I attempted to wish a friend happy birthday, which I didn't even get to do because I was freaked out by all of the paparazzi. These false accusations are absurd."

Lohan was trying to avoid paparazzi in Hollywood and was negotiating a U-turn when she "brushed" a man's leg, Officer Norma Eisenman told L.A. Now. Witnesses reported that Lohan was behind the wheel and that she drove away, police said, but Eisenman said Lohan was not contacted.

The man, reportedly a manager at the nearby Hookah Lounge, allegedly told paparazzi and police at the scene that he didn't need medical attention, according to TMZ, whose unnamed sources said he went to an emergency room hours later and was considering pressing charges.

No hit-and-run investigation was opened by law enforcement who went to the scene. Lohan's rep told Gossip Cop that Lilo didn't even get out of her car when she got to the Sayers Club because there were so many photogs that she decided to drive away.

"At no point was there ever any indication that her car hit anyone or anything," the rep added.

Early reports implied that Lohan had been inside the establishment. The Sayers Club has the actress' back on that.

"Contrary to reports surfacing, Lindsay Lohan was not at the Sayers Club Tuesday evening or Wednesday early a.m.," said a rep for the venue, located on Wilcox Avenue near the 6500 block of Hollywood Boulevard, where the incident allegedly occurred shortly before 1 a.m. Wednesday. The Hookah Lounge is on the boulevard.

Lindsay Lohan's return to 'Saturday Night Live' brings memories

Lindsay Lohan and Kenan Thompson

Lindsay Lohan is set to take the "Saturday Night Live" stage tonight for the fourth time, and fans can’t wait to see the troubled starlet poke fun at her recent troubles.

Shoplifting, working at the morgue and serving house arrest should make great fodder for the "SNL" writers, but will the skits live up to some of Lindsay’s past appearances?

Who can forget her spoof commercial for coin slot (a.k.a. butt crack) moisturizer? Lindsay and Kristin Wiig explained enthusiastically that low-cut fashion can expose that, ahem, area to sun and wind, but with a little lotion, you can "kick coin-slot dryness to the curb."

How about her turn as Hermione Granger from the "Harry Potter" franchise? When Hermione comes back from summer break looking a bit top heavy, Harry and Ron can’t seem to focus on anything but her chest:

And what about the time Tina Fey and Amy Poehler offered to mentor her on "Weekend Update"? At first it’s all about Lindsay’s eating habits and career, until she manages to turn the tables.

For a taste of the "Lindsanity" in store for tonight, check out her promos below, with Kenan Thompson.

Anne Hathaway: Meet my inner Lindsay Lohan

Anne Hathaway says she's got stuff in common with Lindsay Lohan

Anne Hathaway says she's more like Lindsay Lohan than we might assume — talk about a princess diary we'd like to read!

Do tell, Anne. The "Dark Knight Rises" actress made the reveal in an international interview, reflecting on life lessons she got from her mother and show business. 

"I never sit in judgment. Lindsay Lohan and I have more in common than people think," Hathaway teased to the Sun about her earlier years. 

"We've all done things we shouldn't. It is just that I did stuff at college when nobody knew about it. I'm not a saint. I wasted time doing self-destructive things. I found out you can only dance on so many table tops," she said. 

This missive from Annie is pretty well-timed for Lohan, given that LiLo's road to redemption begins this weekend with a hosting gig on "Saturday Night Live." 

Dream skit: Anne Hathaway in stuffy British character from the movie "One Day," advising Lohan as to the best table-tops on which to dance.

Lindsay Lohan: 'I'm beginning the process to prove myself'

Lindsay Lohan

Lindsay Lohan, a veteran of the sometimes bumpy road to redemption, is once again mounting a journey back to sobriety, accountability and perhaps box-office success.

Sitting down with the "Today" show in an interview that will air Thursday, Lohan discusses efforts in motion aimed at helping the industry and the public forgive her for a marathon of bad behavior.

Her first chance: hosting "Saturday Night Live" on March 3, with musical guest Jack White. 

"Do you think people have gotten back, or can get back to the point where they trust you?" anchor Matt Lauer asked about folks such as "SNL" honcho Lorne Michaels, who will need Lohan on point for the live show.

"I think that takes time," Lohan said, "and I think that it's actions. Because people can say things all they want, but I think I still need to go through the process of proving myself, you know, with 'SNL,' being on time, being, you know, keeping my -- can't say the word, but -- stuff together."

Indeed.

The second opportunity to turn it around: Being cast as Elizabeth Taylor in the forthcoming Lifetime movie "Liz and Dick," which will focus on Taylor's romance with Richard Burton.

"She's always been a fascinating woman to me. So I'm really honored. And I will not let anyone down, especially myself," she said. 

And her third chance? That would be with the law. Lohan is doing well, actually, in clearing up probation debacles from a 2007 DUI and that theft of a necklace last year. Her next hearing is March 29, and if she keeps her community service in order, she could be off the formal-probation hook. 

That road to redemption is much sweeter when you're making good time.

Lindsay Lohan in probation 'home stretch,' judge says

Lindsay Lohan in and outside court

Lindsay Lohan had another positive day in court Wednesday, with Judge Stephanie Sautner saying she's in the "home stretch" of a probation saga that dates to 2007.

Lohan has 14 days of community service — that's morgue duty — and five more therapy sessions to complete before March 29, the target date the judge laid out when she finally sentenced the actress to "structure" (plus a little jail time) back in November. Rather than dumping a lump sum of probation duties on Lohan as had been done in the past, Sautner laid out a structured path to be completed in monthly increments. 

It seems to be working.

"Miss Lohan, you're in the home stretch," Sautner told Lohan at the Airport Courthouse, where she'd shown up with attorney Shawn Chapman Holley for a probation progress check, L.A. Now reported. "You seem to be getting your life back on track."

Lohan was to fulfill her community service and therapy requirements in regular monthly chunks, the judge decided in November.

If everything's completed by the next hearing, March 29, the remnants of Lohan's 2007 DUI convictions will "go bye-bye," the judge said Wednesday, and her probation for misdemeanor theft in 2011 will be converted to summary probation, in which she doesn't have to meet with a probation officer. She'd still have to avoid breaking any laws, however.

Though she's still on the hook for five more weeks, Lohan can — with her probation officer's permission — head to New York for a spot of work early in March. It was announced Tuesday that she's going to host "Saturday Night Live" for the first time since 2006.

Lohan's also been cast to play a young Elizabeth Taylor in a made-for-TV flick for Lifetime, TMZ said Tuesday.

What a difference some structure makes?

Lindsay Lohan signs on to host 'Saturday Night Live'

Lindsay Lohan will host "Saturday Night Live"

Lindsay Lohan will host "Saturday Night Live" on March 3, adding another notch to a pop-culture comeback belt that already includes an appearance in Playboy.

Prolific host Alec Baldwin need not feel threatened just yet -- it'll only be LiLo's fourth turn as host. She had hosting gigs in 2004, 2005 and 2006, before she became more likely to be the subject of a sketch than to appear in one as a guest.

This time around, the writers should have plenty to work with.

With her community service at the morgue on track to end soon, Lohan reportedly called up "SNL" exec producer Lorne Michaels and proposed she host, sources close to the actress told TMZ. (At least it wasn't her dad doing it this time without her permission.)

Jack White will be the musical guest, NBC said.

Lindsay Lohan: Neighbors happy 'hurricane' has moved from Venice

Lindsay Lohan has moved out of the Venice pad she's been living in for the last year, and it seems the neighbors couldn't be more pleased

Lindsay Lohan has moved out of the Venice pad she's been living in for the last year, and it seems the neighbors couldn't be more pleased.

"Lohan was like a hurricane, or some other natural disaster tearing through the neighborhood," one former neighbor told Radar Online.

Ouch. But LiLo didn't head out on the neighbors' account. According to TMZ, she was freaked out and felt unsafe after a male stranger knocked on her door on New Year's Day, and has been at the Chateau Marmont ever since that trespassing incident. The moving vans (yes, plural) that showed up Tuesday and Wednesday were moving her stuff into storage. 

"Goodbye to her and all her drama," another former neighbor told Radar. "Since she moved here it's been a complete circus with a revolving door of friends in and out of her house and paparazzi camped out permanently. Everyone was so sick of her."

(Remember the parade of friends visiting while she was under house arrest? Heck, even we were annoyed by that, and we're nowhere close to Venice.)

Lonnie Short, the man who knocked on her door in January and wouldn't go away until police responded reportedly wanted to talk to the actress about David Cocordan. Lohan was granted a two-year restraining order against Cocordan in June.

Lohan moved into the 3,100-square-foot, four-bedroom joint -- located right next door to ex Sam Ronson's pad -- in January of last year.

The Venice rental reportedly ran $7,100 a month, but the $435-a-night Chateau Marmont room may be a freebie -- the New York Post said it belongs to a friend who keeps the room but rarely stays there.

Nice friend.

Globes winners Meryl Streep, Jean Dujardin hit Weinstein party

Golden Globes winners Meryl Streep and Jean Dujardin

Golden Globe winner Meryl Streep referred to Harvey Weinstein as "god" in her acceptance speech Sunday, taking the prize for actress in a drama. And if that's the case, Meryl, everyone went to god's house Sunday night.

The location was the former BAR210 space at the Beverly Hilton, tented and furnished in black to house the Weinstein Co.'s formal after-party celebrating many significant wins at the Hollywood Foreign Press Assn.'s big night. 

Harvey's leading ladies brought Globes home -- Streep for "The Iron Lady" and Michelle Williams for "My Week With Marilyn" -- and to the party for that matter, celebrating victories with well-wishers including Cameron Diaz (showing once again with Diddy), Ewan McGregor, Viola Davis and Alexander Skarsgard.

WINNERS: Golden Globes winners and nominees

The Ministry ran into Jean Dujardin of "The Artist," who won for actor in a musical or comedy, huddled with his producers in a corner.

"Shocked," he told us of his feelings on the win, staring down at his statuette. And where will the prize live? "In my bed," he said, pressing it to his face and snuggling it (this man really is the French Clooney, we may or may not have blushed). 

Madonna popped by to see Mr. Weinstein after grabbing a win for best original song with "Masterpiece" from her film "W.E.," but stayed only a few moments before disappearing as an ageless Jane Fonda entered with a gentleman escort, fur stole wrapped around her shoulders and ready to schmooze.

Speaking of schmoozing, Relativity Media exec Ryan Kavanaugh picked over hors d'oeuvres at a table with Rob Lowe while Les Moonves and Julie Chen said hello to Penny Marshall. Mark Salling and Cory Monteith of "Glee" roamed with Malin Ackerman and Lindsay Lohan nearby.

As for Weinstein himself, he kept the company of Leonardo DiCaprio -- and those countless other worshippers Sunday night.

Lindsay Lohan tapped for $94,000 in unpaid income tax

Lindsay Lohan owes a tax debt

Now Lindsay Lohan owes back taxes? Once again, girlfriend can't seem to catch a break.

The government is coming after Lohan for nearly $94,000, according to tax-lien papers filed Thursday in L.A., after the actress allegedly failed to pay income tax in 2009.

(Note to Lindsay: Something like this didn't go well for Wesley Snipes.)

Sources told TMZ that Lohan thought her accountants were handling that sort of thing, and intends to pay the bill immediately. Her Playboy paycheck ought to help out a bit, no? Good timing. The lien has been filed against her home in Encino, according to E! Online, which also reported that Lilo's rep isn't commenting on her personal finances.

Lindsay was definitely in full-tabloid mode in 2009, breaking up with Samantha Ronson, jetting around the world, showing up late for court and getting her probation extended. Nothing too out of the ordinary, but recall that right about tax-filing time in 2010 she was busy suing ETrade over "that milkaholic Lindsay" and no-showing for civil-suit depositions and it becomes clear how income taxes might not make the short list of things to do.

Having recently replaced her business team (or so TMZ sources said), she's currently busy doing morgue duty regularly in an attempt to finally get through probation and on with life. She also stepped out at the Chateau Marmont on Wednesday night for a party hosted by the Weinstein Co., to celebrate award season.
