If your week involved smashing a Porsche into an 18-wheeler, being linked in headlines to a porn star, and having the paramedics called to your hotel room, there’s a pretty good chance you are probably James Bond. Or Lindsay Lohan.
Of course, one of those folks is fictional. The other is very much real — and just had a really crazy week. Yes, the Lind-sanity is still with us, as the actress wrapped an impressive seven-day stretch that began with a car wreck (and hospitalization), rolled right on with some salacious headlines and wrapped with some drama at the Ritz-Carlton (and a rumored hospitalization).
Here’s a look back at Lindsay Lohan’s rather hectic week, one that would give any mere mortal (or secret agent) pause. But not her.
Friday, June 8: Lohan is taken to the hospital after smashing her Porsche into an 18-wheeler on the Pacific Coast Highway in Santa Monica. Luckily, she wasn’t seriously injured — though the same couldn’t be said for her vehicle, as photos showed the Porsche with a severely damaged front end, a smashed windshield and a deployed airbag.
Monday, June 11: Reports surface that Lohan may have lied to police about just who was driving the car. She had originally told responding officers she was sitting in the passenger seat, with her assistant behind the wheel, which supposedly didn’t corroborate with the story her assistant told police. Uh-oh.
Tuesday, June 12: Lohan’s name is attached to “The Canyons,” a Hollywood drama from writer Bret Easton Ellis that will also feature adult-film star James Deen. Lohan will reportedly play Tara, girlfriend to Deen’s Christian, a “trust fund kid, power player and major manipulator, who is a film producer that enjoys filming his own three-way sex sessions.”
Thursday, June 14: “The Canyons” producer Braxton Pope acknowledges Lindsay’s reputation to MTV News, saying, “What’s kind of lost in a lot of the Lindsay discussions is the fact that Lindsay is a very talented actress. She’s very charismatic and she has a lot of acting skills. So her lifestyle and some of the things that she’s gone through have tended to kind of overwhelm the fact, but Lindsay has kind of real talent. So for this part, we felt that she was really the right actor for a host of different reasons.”
Friday, June 15: A California news station erroneously reports that Lohan had been taken to the hospital after being found unconscious in a hotel room. While paramedics had been called to her penthouse at the Ritz-Carlton, they left the scene without the actress, and her reps insisted that all she was suffering from was “exhaustion and dehydration” and said Lohan was actually napping after a grueling stretch of shooting the upcoming Lifetime movie “Liz & Dick.”
