Does this really come as a surprise to anyone??
We've seen the way Lindsay Lohan does business and it's really not all that professional. Besides stiffing hefty hotel bills and letting down Barbara Walters of all people, it really isn't a far stretch to say that the girl has quite a reputation.
Turns out, things weren't so different on the set of her Lifetime movie Liz & Dick.
Executive Producer Larry Thompson called working with her a "challenge" and that's putting it nicely. Between all the various lawsuits and run-ins with the law, it didn't take the faint of heart to get her cleared by insurance, causing a huge pain for production.
"We had serious challenges to deal with due to her probation and her history therefore we had to make a deal where there were pages and pages of 'what if' clauses. There never was a 'what if she can act' clause. It was about, 'What if there is a car accident? What if there is a violation of her probation [and she's] incarcerated?' Those 'what ifs' were plenty. She might be the most insured actress who ever walked on a soundstage. We tried to insure ourselves against things that could and, in fact, did happen."
It really sounds like it's more trouble than it's worth. If there's any hope for a LiLo comeback, she better hope that people will be tuning in just to watch the circus.
And you know, we'll be sitting there with a leftover turkey leg watching with bated breath!
