‘Scary Movie 5’ Producer: Lindsay Is Troubled

Lindsay LohanLindsay Lohan is a "troubled human," according to Scary Movie 5 writer-producer David Zucker. The 26-year-old star has the potential to be a "really good" actress if she puts her wild antics behind after completing her upcoming 90-day stint in rehab as part of her plea deal on charges of lying to police about driving during a car crash in June 2012.

Speaking at the Hollywood premiere of the new horror/comedy sequel at the ArcLight Cimenas Cinerama Dome, David told the New York Daily News, "She's a troubled human and she was late a lot to the set, but she knew her lines and she's a good actress. This seems to be the business for all these addictions and craziness. Anybody has the potential to come back and straighten out."

Lindsay arrived fashionably late to the premiere, sauntering into the cinema 30 minutes after her co-stars and muttering, "Jesus!" when she saw how many photographers were waiting to catch a glimpse of her. One of her entourage insisted, "She's really happy to be here."

Lindsay Lohan reportedly refused to kiss Charlie Sheen in Scary Movie 5. The 26-year-old actress had been expected to smooch the Anger Management star three times during their bedroom scene, but wouldn't comply with the request because of her co-star's wild sexual history.

According to gossip website TMZ, it is unknown what Lindsay's specific objections were, but both she and Charlie had had to sign release forms confirming they did not have cold sores. The 26-year-old star has told friends she warned producers ahead of shooting that she didn't want to kiss Charlie, but script changes weren't made until it was time to shoot the scene. A body double was drafted in for some parts, while others were written out entirely.

Grant Bowler: Working with Lohan Was Maddening

Lindsay Lohan and Grant BowlerGrant Bowler found working with Lindsay Lohan an "exercise in patience."

The Australian actor thinks filming Liz & Dick - in which he plays Richard Burton to her Elizabeth Taylor - should have run "smoother and he was frustrated over the time some things took on the TV movie.

"There were exercises in patience and there were exercises in tolerance. I believe it could have been smoother at times, it could have been a lot smoother at times and we could have got a lot more done on a couple of days, but you get what you're given. My focus was whether we could knuckle down and get a film made. We certainly took our time in a lot of ways when I would have preferred to be shooting."

Grant admits the delays to filming left him "mad," but he tried to focus on doing the best job he possibly could. "Well, you know, yeah. But a part of the job is you're off when you're off, you're on when you're on and you're focused. Every single job is an opportunity to get better at my job, I've been doing this for 22 years and all I care about at the end of the day is how well I do my job and how well I serve my audience," he said when asked if he was mad.

The 26-year-old actress has reportedly banned her family and friends from discussing professional reviews of her new TV movie Liz & Dick in front of her because she is proud of her performance in the film.

VIDEO: 1950’s Teaser Trailer of the Lindsay Lohan Film ‘The Canyons’

Perhaps due to the film noir content of the story, the folks behind the Bret Easton Ellis-penned The Canyons released a teaser yesterday in the style of a 1950s trailer.

In the film, Lindsay Lohan stars opposite porn star James Deen, one of the two men the trailer claims she must choose between. The acting in the trailer seems a bit cheesy, but I'm truly hoping that it's just confined to the trailer itself and not the film! Directed by Paul Shrader, the film has a slated 2013 release with no exact date set just yet.
