Lindsay Lohan: Primed for a comeback that could be her last
LOS ANGELES (REUTERS) - At the premiere of director Paul Schrader's micro-budget thriller The Canyons last week in Los Angeles, the film's star and Hollywood's favourite troubled actress, Lindsay Lohan, was nowhere to be found among the booze-sipping pool-side crowd.
"We get used to these last-minute situations," Schrader wryly told the audience. "We know that she wanted to come, but the drama wasn't sufficient enough."
The Canyons, penned by American Psycho author Bret Easton Ellis and also starring adult film actor James Deen, is just one step in Lohan's latest attempt to revive her stalled acting career, which at age 27 may be running short on time, according to industry veterans.
The former child star who earned high marks for her roles in 1998's The Parent Trap and 2004's Mean Girls is as well-known for her legal troubles - theft and reckless driving - as for her talent. She has been to rehab six times.
