Just because Rosie O'Donnell said it out loud apparently doesn't mean she's the only one thinking it!
Lindsay Lohan is officially signed on to portray Elizabeth Taylor in the Lifetime biopic Liz & Dick, but the producers behind the project are going above and beyond to make sure that the former hard-pAArtying actress doesn't screw the entire production if she starts falling back into any old, ahem, 'habits!'
Producer Larry Thompson reveals:
"Lindsay Lohan may be the most insured actress that ever walked on a soundstage, for this movie. We've tried to anticipate a lot of things. We hope none of them happen. [Her contract includes] three pages of what-ifs. We thought we'd maybe minimize some risk by shooting here in LA. We have the illusion that maybe we can control the situation a bit better … Now if I learn to regret it, sitting here today I think it is still — for the movie— a great risk to run."
Wow. THREE PAGES worth of scenarios in which Lindsay could destroy this production that needed insuring?
That certainly doesn't inspire a lot of confidence in her ability to pull this off, now does it?
But hey - she's the one that put herself in this mess to begin with!
This is just a natural part of the 'digging herself back out' process - and if she agreed to the terms of the contract, then we at least are comforted to know that she recognizes it!
Prove the world wrong, gurl! Show us you can do this…without costing the network an arm and a leg!
