Lindsay Lohan 'Not Bankable,' 'Other Side' Director Says
MTV.COM ^ | 26 APRIL 2010 | MTV.COM

Posted on 04/26/2010 7:12:04 PM PDT by Extremely Extreme Extremist

At this point in her career, Lindsay Lohan might have enough star power to land a small film role — as with her upcoming turn in Robert Rodriguez's "Machete" — but it seems some in Hollywood have gotten cold feet about hiring the actress.

After firing her from "The Other Side" over the weekend, writer/director David Michaels explained the decision by saying Lohan is "not bankable."

"The producers of the movie have reported that financiers have been resistant to finance the movie with Lindsay in the lead role," he told E! News.

At press time, a rep for Lohan had not responded to MTV News' request for comment.

Sad considering she has talent if you saw Mean Girls of Parent Trap. Drugs and her “girlfriend” did her career in. I predict porn within three years.

It's not "bamkability." Failed movie stars get comeback roles all the time. Lindsay's problem is insurability. No insurance company will write a completion bond for a film with Lindsay in it because she is such an obvious high risk for a fatal drug overdose.

She needs to do what Robert Downey Jr did. Robert was literally left for dead in the late 90s.

That would be wild. Is she unable to take care of herself at all?

What's the point? Photos of Lohan showing her goods for free are but a quick google search away.

Of course, she’ll have plenty of people to blame for it rather than her own miserable self.

She doesn't much Like Sarah Palin either, apparently.
Remember this from before the 2008 elections?

Is our country so divided that the Republicans’ best hope is a narrow minded, media obsessed homophobe?” she asks.

Lohan also blasts Palin on abortion (Palin is pro-life).

Women have come a long way in the fight to have the choice over what we do with our bodies ... and it's frightening to see that a woman in 2008 would negate all of that,” she writes.

In the words of Pamela Anderson, ‘She can suck it,’’ she writes.”

Poor deluded girl.

If she is not able to turn her life around, I see another Anna Nicole Smith or Marlyn Monroe here.
She is really heading for disaster.

"Sad considering she has talent if you saw Mean Girls of Parent Trap."

IMHO "Georgia Rule" was her best performance. Both funny and heartbreaking.

Maybe.

But I wouldn’t be surprised to see a long trip to rehab, conversion to Kabalism, followed by a run for Congress.

Just reflecting on the screwed-up state of things today.

The difference is Robert Downey, Jr. is a brilliant actor. That helps.

Growing up in showbiz is a very very bad idea. You have no concept of the real world.

There are many clean and sober people in the entertainment business.

Recovery resources abound.

He's talented as hell though.

Plus, he is a man. Women depreciate. Men just get distinguished. (;
