The recent heatwave has affected us all in different ways. People have died and people have lost electricity but, more importantly, it made Lindsay Lohan even more monged-out than usual. Sorry, we meant 'dehydrated'.
Lindsay Lohan's trip to the hospital last week has opened up all sorts of festering wounds. While Lindsay Lohan and her slaves claim that she collapsed on the set of Georgia Rule because she was overheated and dehydrated from standing around in 105 degree heat for 12 hours, the Georgia Rule producer has called Lindsay Lohan a spoiled little discourteous party girl for arsing up his film so much. Anyway, Lindsay Lohan is back at work now, and her rubbishy-looking film is back on track. Hooray!
This is an absolutely critical stage of Lindsay Lohan's movie career. Lindsay is reportedly very keen to move away from all of her crappy teen comedies about magical cars that dry hump other cars, and become a serious actress. Lindsay Lohan is already making a film about Bobby Kennedy getting shot and a film about John Lennon getting shot, and now she's currently filming Georgia Rule, a hilarious romp about Lindsay Lohan getting molested by her Dad and going to live with Barbarella.
Or at least Lindsay Lohan is filming Georgia Rule now, which is more than can be said for a lot of last week, when Lindsay Lohan got overheated onset and had to be taken to the hospital for a rest and some delicious vitamin B12. It's just a shame that James G.
Robinson, the producer of Georgia Rule, thought that the whole overheating thing was a lot of bullshit and wrote Lindsay a letter saying:
"We are well aware that your ongoing all night heavy partying is the real reason for your so called 'exhaustion'… To date your actions on Georgia Rule have been discourteous, irresponsible and unprofessional. You have acted like a spoiled child and in so doing have alienated many of your co-workers and endangered the quality of this picture. Moreover, your actions have resulted in hundreds of thousands of dollars in damage. We will not tolerate these actions any further."
Which leaves us in a perfect situation: Lindsay Lohan has got publicly bollocked by her boss, while James G. Robinson – who once wrote a similar letter to Sharon Stone for not taking her clothes as much as he'd like during Diabolique – is now furiously backtracking to make himself sound less like a grumpy old bastard. Robinson told Reuters:
"I'm just trying to get the movie made. I did what I felt I needed to do on behalf of the movie and on behalf of her, too. I wanted to set some limits. I've never had a minute's trouble with her. She's every inch a lady. I felt I needed to remind her of her obligations to show up. It was not a nasty letter. It was, 'Come on be a professional.' We're halfway through with six weeks to go. There's no turning back. I wrote the letter; it was from me, not some damn attorney. She showed up. That's all I cared about."
And it seems to have worked – Lindsay Lohan is back filming Georgia Rule again. Does this mean we've seen the last of the teacup-slashing, car-crashing, McFly-shagging, lesbian-dancing Lindsay Lohan? Let's hope not – who else is there to write about? Ruth Badger?
