Lindsay Lohan Ditches Venice Film Festival, ‘The Canyons’ Director Jokes She Had Held Him ‘Hostage’ With ‘Unpredictable’ Behavior


Lindsay Lohan, who just got out from rehab, is a no-show again at the Venice Film Festival last Friday.  Paul Schrader, Lohan’s director for “The Canyons,” said, “For the last 16 months I’ve been held hostage, by my own choosing, to a very talented but unpredictable actress.” Schrader continued, “She was supposed to be here today. She said she would be, but she is not.”

Schrader has no explanation on the absence of Lohan but Lohan’s rep said, “She wanted to come, but for reasons out of her control it did not work out.”


The absence of the actress did not seem to bother the management of “Saturday Night Live.”  Lohan was invited by SNL on their 38th season.  A source said, “She is definitely considering doing it.  She loves the show and the people involved.”

Well, let’s just wait and see if Lohan will show up.
