We know, not a name you hear very often these days, huh? Still, he knows a thing or two about the biz and what it's like to hit rock bottom and prevail, so he could be a good resource for her. Plus, remember they made Bobby together, so he sort of, kind of knows some stuff about her too.
Christian Slater has admitted to reaching out to Lindsay Lohan recently, in light of her continued lack of ability to turn her life around. Christian, who is celebrating five years of sobriety this year, feels it is important to help kids who are struggling with the same issues as he did and makes it a point to help when he can. He explained to sources:
"I was dealing with alcoholism and addiction, and there was a lot to take on without much life experience. Addiction is not pretty, and you don’t fully understand it unless you’re dealing with it head-on. That’s why when I see other kids struggling, I will sometimes reach out to them — a call or an e-mail.”
He confessed that LiLo was one of the youths he reached out to, saying that he understands the "brutal position" she must be in and how "confused" she must be over how her life has turned out.
Okay, screw Charlie Sheen, girl. Take heed to Slater's words! He's been doing some real good in the world the past few years: trips to Africa and a USO tour. Sure, he doesn't make as many movies anymore, but look at the amazing person he turned out to be.
Follow his example! Stage a comeback! Yes, you can!!!!
