She seems to fake being sober quite often.

Apparently no one watched her interview with Oprah on the Oprah Channel. Part of that could be because no one could find the Oprah Channel on their cable box.

Why oh why are people calling actresses actors?!

I'll stop calling them actresses when the Oscars and Golden Globes eliminate the catigory of Best Actress in a Staring Role.

Currently on the SAG calls them female actors

Yes, because suddenly there is no such thing as different genders anymore and we should all speak and act accordingly and androgynously.

We can still say dominatrix though, can't we? "Female Dominator" sounds like a bad Troma movie starring Chyna.

Someday an intersexed person will turn in a great performance, where will they be classified?

Sadly, she may not be a rock star but the curse could still apply.

Neither Schrader nor Lohan's publicist gave a reason for the last-minute cancellation.

Earguy: Someday an intersexed person will turn in a great performance, where will they be classified?


My guess is they would make the decision themselves.  Actors and studios select what categories they're placed in placed in, at least for most of the major awards.  It happens all the time that actors will submit themselves in certain categories for various reasons. i.e. so that actors from the same movie don't compete with each other or so that they can be in what they perceive to be a weaker field.  I would imagine an intersexed person would have the same latitude

With that headline I really expected another Kristen Stewart article.

But I can't imagine anyone in the business actually coming out and saying it for fear of being crushed by her mighty jaw.

Domestic box office totals for "The Canyons"

Domestic Total as of Aug. 29, 2013: $50,165

4th week in release, playing in 3 theaters (down from 9 last week).

Average per theater, weekend of Aug. 23: $ 527.

Now, to be fair, her not showing up for this premiere is probably better, from a PR perspective, than if she had shown up and just did the standard red carpet stroll. This, at least, generated some headlines, whereas just showing up probably wouldn't have. At this point, being erratic is LL "brand," and the press would probably be disappointed if she suddenly became reliable.

That's what I never got. Comeback from what? Robert Downey Jr, Drew Barrymore, LL Cool J...oh wait, we can't call that a comeback. He's been here for years. What did Lindsey really do to qualify as a comeback? Mean Girls? Everyone always cites that but has anyone ever actually seen it?

Mobius strip of human stupidity: What the hell was Paul Schrader thinking by having anything to do with that person.


I'd assume he was trying to get a movie made (he doesn't have the best reputation in Hollywood) and that having her in the film guaranteed press which meant he got the tiny amount of funding he needed.

/I'm honestly curious to see it to see James Deen's acting abilities.

She was a pretty big star in Disney's stable for several years. She starred in "Herbie Fully Loaded" and "The Parent Trap" prior to "Mean Girls," and all of those films made a ton of dough. You might not have seen them, but there are plenty of kids and teenagers that did.

And besides, this is one of those questions that's almost self-answering. If she hadn't been a big enough star before going into her downward spiral, the media wouldn't have really cared and we wouldn't be talking about her now. If I told you that Zach Cregger, star of 2009's comedy flop "Miss March" was a strung out junkie yelling crazy shiat at cars around homeless shelters in Kansas City, would you care? We're talking about LL now because people were talking about her then.

I think it's the opposite. If Christina Ricci or Alicia Silverstone had developed a highly publicized drug habit, they'd be in the same position. And at least they would have the career to back it up.

Didn't Linda Hunt win a 'Best Supporting Actress' Oscartm for playing a man in "The Year of Living Dangerously"?

How would you classify that?

I don't get where you're saying that LL didn't have a career before all this:

"The Parent Trap" (lead role): $ 66 mil. domestic box office (in 1998 dollars). Made more than the Oscar-winning "Life Is Beautiful"

"Freaky Friday" (lead role): $ 110 million domestic. 21st highest grossing film for the year (beating "The Italian Job" and "Scary Movie 3," and kicking the crap out of "Kill Bill, Vol. 1")

"Mean Girls" (lead role): $ 86 million domestic. 28th for the year. Made more than "Anchorman" and Oscar-winner "Ray"

"Herbie: Fully Loaded" (lead role): $ 66 million.

Want me to compare that to Christina Ricci's biggest films? I'll leave out her niche art films and just go with the broad box office ones:

"Adams Family": $113 mil in 1991. Huge numbers, but she wasn't even close to being the lead in that.
"That Darn Cat" (lead role): $ 18 mil
"Sleepy Hollow" (second-billed to Johnny Depp): $ 101 mil.
"Monster" (second-billed to Charlize Theron): $ 34 mil

The takeaway from that: she's been in some hits, but she's never anchored one.

Now, I'll grant you that Ricci is a better actor and has a much more interesting and challenging resume than Lohan, but you're nuts if you think Ricci is a bigger "star."

/hate that I'm even "defending" LL...

See what I took away was the same as I got from the music industry; "making money isn't necessarily an indicator of talent." You know, like how Macarena is #7 on the billboard top 100 songs of all time,Link and the Bee Gees Saturday Night Fever and Whitney Huston's Bodyguard are most certainly not the 5th and 7th best albums ever produced. but they were the 5th and 7th best selling.....

I digress; I guess my point is that most people are stupid and therefore like talentless unadulterated crap because they can't tell the difference anyway.  The success of that crap however, is not an indicator of its value, it is an indicator of the ignorance and poor taste of the population at large.
 
2013-08-31 02:08:47 PM
Oh yeah, and LL can just go ahead an pull an Amy Winehouse, we all know that's the way this thing's gonna end.
