Only Lindsay Lohan could take a role in a Lifetime Original Movie and somehow drown it in vodka and delusion until it becomes her award-winning magnum opus for which everyone around her must obey her every demand. Which is exactly what she did on the set of Liz & Dick. After she was denied the right to travel around Europe looking for the perfect actor for Richard Burton, Lindsay apparently turned the entire production into one long, inescapable hell-pit. Or maybe she just did so by accident. Honestly, either way it’s pretty hilariously bad. Via The Daily:
Beyond her well-documented rear-ending of a truck on the way to work on June 8, and her needing paramedics last week because she fell unconscious, Lohan often shows up two hours late to work and “rarely knows her lines,” one insider said.
“The crew is fed up with Lindsay, because they have to spend so much time dealing with her diva antics and, in turn, trying to soothe Grant’s battered ego,” a source told Star magazine.
Bowler was hired to portray Richard Burton at the 11th hour, just before filming started this month, because Lohan was demanding that Lifetime bring in a big-name leading man such as Gerard Butler, Robert Downey Jr. or even Brad Pitt.
“She was delusional,” said one insider. “This is a made-for-TV movie. There’s no budget for a big star.” [Ed. Note: HAHAHAHAHAHA! – JF] Lohan, biased against Bowler from the beginning, has “been so mean to Grant that her comeback is in jeopardy,” Star reports. Lohan has looked glamorous in dozens of different ’60s period costumes, but “the footage so far has been just awful,” what with the obvious lack of chemistry between the stars, said a source.
So let me get this straight: someone gave a job to an enabled, entitled princess who thinks she’s far more famous and talented than she actually is, thereby justifying in her head her right to do whatever she wants whenever she wants, and it completely blew up in their faces? No way.
