Why I Missed The Venice Film Festival — By Lindsay Lohan

Posted on September 1st, 2013 at 9:30 am


The old Lindsay Lohan -- the before 90-day rehabbed Lindsay Lohan -- had a reputation of missing important events and showing up late. So it made sense when The Canyons director Paul Schrader told the media at the Venice Film Festival, "For the last 16 months I've been held hostage, by my own choosing, to a very talented but unpredictable actress. She was supposed to be here today. She said she would be, but she is not."

Lindsay posted this response on her new website:

"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. <3, Lindsay"
