Lohan faces a meltdown
Question of the Day
Projects like “Bobby,” he adds, “allowed her to test the waters of serious films without being the center of attention. It did good for her, creatively.”
A few ominous headlines later, and it’s time for career damage control.
“Maybe films with more negative roles might work for her” as a way to deflect her real-life woes, he suggests.
Robert Downey Jr. went through a similar addiction meltdown but eventually emerged with his reputation as a talented actor intact.
A better comparison could be made with Drew Barrymore, who battled addiction in her teen years but then emerged as a steady, bankable actress.
“Hollywood is very forgiving,” he says.
Miss Lohan’s behavior risks more than public favor. It forces film studios to require insurance clauses in case she relapses midshoot.
E! Online reports Miss Lohan lost her role in the small drama “Poor Things” because she was seen hitting the town again shortly after leaving rehab.
Now, her next project, “Dare to Love Me,” is also be in jeopardy thanks to her recent relapse.
Ultimately, her film career could be an afterthought if her impulses can’t be corralled.
“It looks like this woman wants to destroy herself,” Bill O’Reilly opined Tuesday on his nationally syndicated radio show.
If that’s the case, no amount of Hollywood wrangling will save her.
