Lindsay Lohan: Why She's Not Gracing The Venice Film Festival With Her Presence! Read It HERE!

lindsay lohan explains missing venice film festival

Well, we're sure her The Canyons director Paul Schrader hasn't been missing her!

But plenty of people are still wondering why Lindsay Lohan didn't show up to the Venice Film Festival to promote her flick.

And it seems it might be because Queen Oprah Winfrey actually did get through to her!

LiLo took to her site this weekend to explain her absence after rumors ran wild that she ditched:

"Along with the positive messages and words of support of "The Canyons" at VFF, I am sending my own to the cast, producers and the amazing Paul Schrader. I am so grateful for the extraordinary experience of being a part of this film. Unfortunately, I have to clear up these reports. I was never confirmed to attend. Of course, I would have enjoyed returning to that wonderful city and being a part of this amazing event, but my focus is on my health and well-being. Plain and simple, it is of the utmost importance."

This explanation is one we most certainly accept!

And we're pretty damn surprised LiLo actually bailed on the bash. She might really be a changed woman this time!

Next you know she might actually kick those cancer sticks!

    Good for her. I'm glad she is showing a commitment to wellness. I think it's ok to look past her spending time with her rehabilitating friend. The path to sobriety is often several steps forward, one step back. Having known former addicts on their successful journey to recovery, a setback is not a reflection of the long term outcome so long as it is followed by more steps forward. Which is why Lindsay's decision to forego this festival is a good indication of progress.

    Lindsay, if you're reading this … there are people out there genuinely rooting for you! You can do it!

    Reportedly, she was also denied entry into the country. Seems she forgot to mention that. If she's so concerned about her health & well-being, why does she continue to hang out with addicts and go to bars, clubs, & parties? It's of the utmost importance for addicts to avoid those things, too.

    Oprah plus 2 millions dollars will go a long way.

    Doesn't anyone remember that her publicist or somebody released her post-rehab schedule as soon as she entered Betty Ford? Top of the list was attending the Venice Festival and the money they were paying her to attend. Guess that doesn't count as a commitment in Lindsay-land.

    Re: ickynicky – No she was not denied entry in the country.

    Maybe this time it will take, but I am not holding my breath.
