Lindsay Lohan? She’s alive and well, thanks. And not getting into any trouble. Right now.

I ran into Lindsay last night at the New York Times annual soiree at the Chateau Marmont penthouse. She came with mom Dina and sister Ali, who’s grown about a foot since’I saw her last.

Lindsay was in fine form, as were all the Lohans. Hotel owner Andre Balazs, hobbling around on a cane (he broke his toe, he said, kicking furniture) escorted them around a crowd that seemed like all of Hollywood crammed into one room.

Among the notables: Jane Fonda and Richard Perry, Jane’s actor son Troy Garity and his beautiful wife Simone, Woody Harrelson, Ben Foster, Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise, Anna Kendrick from “Up in the Air,” Adam Lambert of “American Idol” fame, Richard Kind, Bob and Ava Shaye, Marisa Tomei, all of Meryl Streep’s kids, the “Precious” gang, Chloe Sevigny, Ryan Kavanagh, Harvey Weinstein, “Basterds”’Quentin Tarantino and Eli Roth, Lawrence Bender, Diane Kruger, BJ Novak, Christoph Waltz, Emily Blunt and John Krasinski, Jeff Bridges, Laura Bickford, Nick Jarecki, Zoe Saldana (not blue’but beautiful),’ producer Celine Rattray (who’s going to work for Peter Guber), as well as the Times’ Lynn Hirschberg, who plans the party each year.

And just FYI: Paul McCartney’s in town. He’s making the rounds because his song from “Everybody’s Fine” — “I Want to Come Home” — is nominated for a bunch of awards. When Sir Paul’s present, everything gets a little more hectic! Also, Sir Paul is hard at work on his animated feature, “High in the Clouds,” for Bob Shaye and Michael Lynne’s Unique Pictures.

As for Lindsay: She was sipping soda, looked great, was clear as a bell. Maybe 2010 will be the year of La Lohan. Fingers crossed.
