It seems like a lifetime ago when I actually liked Lindsay Lohan. Of all the teen actresses wading through the cinematic sea, she seemed the most destined for success. LiLo had successful stints in both heavy family fare like Freaky Friday, and teen snarky fare with Mean Girls, but then it all started to crumble. Now, I just feel sorry for her -- sorry that she's troubled enough that she can't even go a few months out of rehab without relapsing, sorry that she has an entourage that seems to have absolutely no motivation to help her or say: "No, Lindsay. You're not going to hop in your car and drive drunk on a suspended license with cocaine in your pocket."

With all of her legal and personal problems, the big question now is whether or not she will have a career after this latest brush with the law, and Variety has chatted with some producers to get their two cents. Poor Things producer Rob Hickman will "continue to be enthusiastic" about the Lohan production, which was supposed to gear up next month. He says: "We expect to announce details on a start date in the very near future." Either he's drowning himself in wobbling optimism, or they must be lining someone else up. I highly doubt Lohan will be ready for more work any time soon, even if Shirley MacLaine visits her in rehab again for more rehearsals.
