Even Lindsay Lohan has to be shocked at this one.
Sure, she’s embarrassed herself beyond comprehension and proven to be a brat who doesn’t take any responsibilities for her actions. But she could at least, like, look good in her mug shot, right? Is that too much for a 21-year-old star to ask?
And, as if this crummy photo, a crumbling personal life and her recent string of arrests weren’t enough, Lindsay Lohan’s week has gotten even worse.
Lohan is apparently being sued by some woman who claims that Lindsay and a bodyguard hit her car a few months ago, then gave her a fake name and number. TMZ reports:
“Signe Dupuy claims that in April 2007 Lindsay Lohan and her main man, Jaz, cut her off in their SUV while she was driving on Fairfax Ave. in L.A. Dupuy says when she got out of the car, Lindsay stopped and glared at her, while Jaz was ‘hostile’ and ‘tried to intimidate’ her. She says they gave her a fake name and number and drove away. Signe tells us this is her last resort, as she has tried to contact Lindsay Lohan several times, even sending her rep a letter. Lindsay’s rep said she did get the letter but “filed it away,” adding “I assumed the letter was sent to [Lindsay’s] lawyers. That’s what they’re paid for.”
Wow. Lindsay’s lawyers are going to be making some serious coin this year, that’s for damn sure. All that reckless drunk driving means big fees! Note to LiLo: The whole fake name thing works better when you’re not a famous movie star.
Also, who the frick is this Jaz?
In any case, the only thing getting crappier reviews than Lindsay Lohan’s rowdy, sometimes naked antics of late is her new movie, I Know Who Killed Me, which debuted in 9th place at the box office, bringing in a paltry $3.4 million. Let’s see what some of the critics say:
It makes you wonder what Lindsay Lohan was thinking when she said yes to this project… Want to know who killed her? She’s doing it to herself!
THG NOTE: Dina Lohan is helping!
New York Daily News:
Truth is, no review could really do justice to the monumental trashiness of this mess; it really has to be seen to be believed.
… sleazy, inept and worthless piece of torture porn… Is [Lohan] now playing the sort of exploitation role that usually goes to desperate beginners because of her apparent lack of self-esteem, or because better offers are drying up due to her hard-partying reputation?
The New York Times:
Both characters are significantly more credible than the plot, a baroque blend of severed limbs, secular stigmata and prostheses doubling as ceiling ornaments… The film does, however, offer the intriguing image of Ms. Lohan trying to stitch herself back together – a scene begging for a metaphorical reading… Pretentious and inane, I Know Who Killed Me arouses unexpected sympathy for its embattled star.
I Know Who Killed Me may just mark the nadir in Lohan’s sad, excruciatingly public descent from hot young star to walking punchline. Having broken free of the Disney machine that molded her, Lohan now seems intent on destroying her career and credibility on her own terms.
THG NOTE: Hey, it’s working for Britney Spears, too.
Why Lindsay Lohan thought it was worthwhile to get day passes out of rehab last year to make this picture is more mystifying than anything Dakota and Aubrey (her dual characters) get up to. Her career could take a hit only if anybody goes to see this thing. For her, that may be the only good news of the week.
