Lindsay Lohan just got another star in her corner!

Zooey Deschanel is sticking up for her fellow SNL host, stating that she believes LiLo did a great job.

As reported earlier, critics hated Linds' guest spot but movie execs loved it. Zooey is definitely behind LiLo and said the following about Lindsay's episode:

It’s so hard. And can I say something? I thought she did a really good job; everyone reads off cue cards. There were some people saying ‘She read off cue cards!’ Everyone — the cast members, the host — everyone reads off cue cards. That’s how it’s done, because they change the script right before, so you have to read off cue cards.

Zooey also said that SNL was one of the best week of her life and that live performances take a lot of work so she feels for her hosting sister.

Score another celeb for Team LiLo!

    Zooey Really? The one Prison scene I saw she had very few lines and just sort of stared off until she stared at the cards. I didn't expect much because she is not a great actress or comic. Just like you, I would not expect a HEELARIOUS SNL I would expect quirky looks and giggles. I would know that you were looking at cue cards but bet you kind of knew the scene.

    and since celebrities are sticking up for her, you have automatically changed your opinion on her as well… nice to see how swayable you are

    Compared to Zooey, Lindsay was not THAT bad. But Zooey wasn't that great either. But if we compare them both to Melissa McCarthey, or Daniel Radcliffe, Zooey was kinda lame, and Lindsay was terrible. Lindsay was just plain bad.

    What is America's obssesion with this low life? She is trailer trash along with her whole family.

    Defends here because this retarded annoying whore Zooey actually was WAY worse than Lohan when she was on SNL. Zooey's eyes never, not once, left the cue cards. It was as if she just strolled in and started reading without ever rehearsing. She was an embarrassment. Maybe "everyone" reads cue cards on SNL but obviously not "everyone" is as horrible an actress as Zooey and many people manage to make it look authentic.
    I'll bash Lohan all day, but fair is fair and this retarded girl should just STFU and enjoy her success while she's still attractive. Once the wrinkles and surgery starts it'll all be over for her and a new broad will move right into her place.

    Zooey doll, you didn't really need cards because you only have the one note you make big crazy doe eyes and speak as if your tongue came from an outlet(size irregular). Re: rosebud99 is right compared to you Lilo wasn't that bad.

    She was lackluster and she looked REALLY nervous. But man, who wouldn't be?! It's not like any other celeb that hosts SNL where they go there and if they bomb, their careers move on and someone will comment on a messageboard saying they SUCKED but so what, people will still hire them because no one views SNL as the true test of an actor's talent. But for Lindsay, this was an act of redemption unlike any other celeb that goes on SNL. Personally, if this was lindsay circa 2004 she would have sucked it up and knocked it out of the park no matter what role she had. But she's so different now (even physically).. all that she's been through … drugs, alcohol, the media on her every move .. I'm still rooting for her deep down I guess. She's part of my childhood lol.

    She's just trying to be different and get attention by not going with the crowd (a la hipster), even though she knows it was shit. She's annoying now.

    Don't see what the problem is ? Lindsay did a Great job on SNL

    Sweet of her, but Lindsay was bad in many ways. Never understood why some claimed she had "talent". She was always an average actor to me. Below average at times, and SNL was one of those times.

    I wouldn't say she was bad, mainly because she had next to no lines. I think this was bad timeing. She looked so old and used up next to the other SNL women who are older than her. The "Scared Straight" sketch was awful. I really expected a lot more.

    I don't see Lindsey as a bad person - i think it's wrong to treat her as if she'd done real harm to anyone but herself. But on SNL she really looked like she was doing community service.
    But whatever, maybe she's getting her life back to a more normal one.
