Lindsay Lohan Pulls No Show At Venice Film Festival

Lindsay Lohan was supposed to appear at the Venice Film Festival to promote The Canyons, the movie she begged and pleaded to be in (and still kept on after she was fired once during production) because her career was in the toilet and no one would hire her. So just like the premiere, which she was also supposed to be at it, Lindsay didn’t even bother showing up. Although, in her defense, there were cigarettes that needed to be smoked in New York and she’s only one person. FOX News reports:

Director Paul Schrader told a news conference that he was “a free man,” adding: “For the last 16 months I’ve been hostage, by own choosing, to a very talented but unpredictable actress.”
Neither Schrader nor Lohan’s publicist gave a reason for the last-minute cancellation.

I’m sure there’ll be a perfectly reasonable explanation because Oprah already told us Lindsay’s cured, and Oprah’s never been wrong before. So there’s no way Lindsay Lohan is out there repeating past behavior or associating with known drug dealers. There’s probably an orphanage out there right now who can’t wait to tell us she got distracted reading to the kids and about Tim the special little boy who taught her the true meaning of Christmas.
