Everyone can calm down. Lindsay Lohan is just fine, thanks. She didn’t show up at the Venice Film Festival because she says she wasn’t supposed to be there. Whew! Lohan emailed me this afternoon: “I’m great! Thank you! No I wasn’t set to go. Just staying focused on me and my recovery :)”
Frankly, Lohan is smart to work on her sobriety and not get any more involved with “The Canyons.” Director Paul Schrader and porn star James Deen handled the movie’s press conference in Venice just fine from what I can tell. But the film did poorly, was reamed by critics, and has ended its life in the U.S.
Lindsay is moving forward from that bad choice. She’s filming an episode of “Eastbound & Down” for HBO and making more plans for quality productions. Let’s hope she has a tranquil Labor Day weekend.
PS Lindsay gave “The Canyons” a nice plug on her website, and published a picture from the photocall today. Very classy!
P.S. Radar is reporting Lindsay may host the season premiere of “Saturday Night Live.” Can’t wait! www.radaronline.com
