It seems that Lindsay Lohan isn’t the only one feeling exhausted on the set of her Lifetime flick, “Liz & Dick.” According to a new report, several crew members also complained of suffering from exhaustion while shooting the film.
Over the weekend, Deadline reported that two members of the hair department left the set early due to “severe dehydration and exhaustion.” A rep for the network couldn’t confirm if they had received treatment for their symptoms. A source notes that the cast and crew have been working long hours trying to complete the Elizabeth Taylor/Richard Burton biopic, adding that the days on set have gone upwards of 20 hours.
Lohan herself addressed all the drama on her Twitter after she made headlines on Friday after she was found sleeping in her hotel room and paramedics were called only to find the actress resting. Her rep said that she was fine but also was suffering from “exhaustion and dehydration.”
“Note to self… After working 85hours in 4days, and being up all night shooting, be very aware that you might pass out from exhaustion & 7 paramedics MIGHT show up @ your door,” she tweeted on Saturday, the same day those several crew members reportedly walked off set. “Hopefully theyre cute. Otherwise it would be a real let down. XL [costume designer] @mrsalperez -back on set.”
It’s been a crazy few weeks for Lohan as she straddles the line between working actress and tabloid queen . But, don’t expect her name to get out of the headlines once she wraps up work on “Liz & Dick.” She’s already got another film on deck, the Bret Easton Ellis-penned L.A. drama, “The Canyons.”
“What’s kind of lost in a lot of the Lindsay discussions is the fact that Lindsay is a very talented actress,” “Canyons” producer Braxton Pope told MTV News. “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.”
