Just days after begging Steven Soderbergh to tell everyone that he was not serious when he said he would not ever work with Lindsay Lohan, now comes a foreward that Lindsay wrote for a book. First of all, it always amazes me that Lindsay can read and write. Then I remember she got to stay in school until she was like 14, so she at least has some book learning. Ali? Don't really see her picking up books and magazines do you? No, I am sure she must be able to read. This is not My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding.
“I can understand the photographer Bernard of Hollywood's [Bruno Bernard] statement, it took a superhuman effort to be Marilyn. I identify.”
I don't. I don't see how Lindsay and Marilyn are even close at all to each other. But wait, it gets worse. “Marilyn never wanted to be just a celebrity. Neither do I.”
Did she keep a straight face when she wrote that? If she did then she is either a better actress than I thought or delusional. Her whole existence would turn into nothing if she was not a celebrity. It is only because she calls photographers and does everything she can to stay in the spotlight that she is even on the radar. Lindsay had a decent run many years ago. Many. Do you know how many bodies of actors are littered over time who had a decent run many years ago and are never heard from again. If the paps went away tomorrow, what do you think Lindsay would do? She would beg them to come back. It is the only thing she knows.
You think this is as bad as it can get, but it gets even worse.
“Heath Ledger once said to me, 'It's built you up to knock you down and that's all it is.'”
She actually name dropped Heath Ledger. Is this so everyone thinks she and Heath were really great friends? Because they were not. Is it so everyone thinks Lindsay is on the same acting level as Heath and this was some in depth acting discussion because she is not half the actor Heath was. I can't believe she brought his name up.
