News of an atypical experience for Lindsay Lohan comes Tuesday -- filmmakers from her latest project are speaking out in defense of the young star.

Jonathan Fong of Muse Films, the production company behind "Inferno," in which Lohan is slated to play porn star Linda Lovelace, says the actress was hard at work during her trip to the Cannes International Film Festival.

"That was her role as the star, making press appearances in support of the movie. ... It helps to sell the movie to have her meet with the people who will fund the film," Fond tells Us magazine. 

We must imagine that, moving forward, Muse expects Lohan to retain custody of her passport during such occasions.

In better news for Lohan, "Inferno" won't shoot until the fall, allowing plenty of time for her newly awarded SCRAM bracelet to come off.
