Lindsay Lohan exhaustion: Comeback hits a new snag?
Just a week after wrecking her loaner Porsche, Lindsay Lohan ended up back in the headlines Friday morning when paramedics were called to examine the actress.
"Lindsay Lohan was examined by paramedics on Friday after a co-worker on a movie she is filming became concerned that the actress looked exhausted, sources told The Times. One source, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because of medical privacy rules, said Lohan was resting after long stretches of filming and looked tired. She was checked out by paramedics and was not taken to the hospital."
The incident comes in the middle of a career resurgence of sorts for the troubled actress. Lohan is currently shooting the Elizabeth Taylor biopic “Liz & Dick” for Lifetime Television and hosted "Saturday Night Live" this past March.
Then again, comeback is a relative term where LiLo is concerned.
She’s set for an independent flick opposite -- wait for it -- Rob Schneider that's titled “Inappropriate Comedy” and has signed on to star in a new independent feature that could shoot this summer. Titled "The Canyons," it’s a soapy thriller with the strangest of pedigrees: directed by Paul Schrader, written by Bret Easton Ellis and costarring an adult films actor named James Deen.
But strange is what you get when producers are wary of casting you and few reputable insurance companies are eager to bond you.
