Here are more Cracken photos from the set of Liz & Dick: The Cracken Attacks from last week. A lot of you acted “shocked” to see Lindsay Lohan looking so rough in photos – um, really? She can’t keep it together long enough to have a no-drama Lifetime TV movie shoot – of course she looks like hell. She’s been partying non-stop to celebrate her “comeback”. Speaking of her incessant partying, there’s some evidence to suggest that Lindsay actually was is a bad state after working “85 hours in 4 days” and “passing out from exhaustion” two Fridays ago. TMZ got their hands on the 911 call made about the state of the Cracken, and it didn’t sound good:
TMZ has obtained the 911 call placed moments before paramedics rushed to Lindsay Lohan’s side last week at a Ritz-Carlton in L.A. — and according to the caller, the emergency was life-threatening. The caller — a male nurse who works for the production company behind Lindsay’s new movie — called the situation a “Code 3″ … which is emergency lingo for “life-threat response.”
Ambulance protocol for a Code 3 is lights and sirens. Translation: the nurse thought Lindsay was in serious trouble when he made the call.
TMZ broke the story … Lindsay informed someone from the “Liz & Dick” production team she wasn’t feeling well Friday morning — and producers dispatched a doctor to the hotel. Before arriving, the doctor called the hotel and asked someone to check on Lindsay.
Someone from the hotel went to Lindsay’s door, checked on her, and determined she was “unresponsive.” That’s when the 911 call was placed.
Paramedics eventually arrived and decided nothing was wrong. They left without transporting Lindsay to the hospital.
To play devil’s advocate, it sounds like the 911 call was placed before they had even entered the hotel room, correct? Which means that everyone involved with this incident merely ASSUMED that Lindsay was passed out cold from drugging, drinking, etc. TMZ also reports that Lifetime producers are really, really worried about Lindsay, There are “five big concerns”: that the film could lose its insurance because of LL, that Lohan’s probation could be violated, that she could be prosecuted for lying the police, that she’ll get into another car accident, and that she’s always clubbing. I know, SHOCKING. You know what’s shocking to me? That Lifetime’s producers weren’t concerned about any of that BEFORE THEY HIRED HER. They knew who she was and what kind of crackie she is.
Meanwhile, the Cracken is still smoking. Like crazy.
When the director yells cut, Lindsay Lohan takes a puff! Lohan, 25, has been hard at work on her new Lifetime movie, Liz & Dick, and the stress may be getting to her. A source tell Us Weekly the actress is smoking two packs of cigarettes a day on the set.
“Literally every time she finishes a scene she lights up another cigarette,” the source explains. “You can hear the crew saying, ‘That’s cut — get a cigarette for Lindsay.’ ”
Lohan is channeling Elizabeth Taylor opposite Grant Bowler (Richard Burton) for the role, which is her first lead role since 2009′s Labor Pains.
“In between takes she would sit on the director’s chair puffing on her cigarettes,” the source tells Us. “Lindsay has been working hard, but without the nicotine she probably could not make it through as she appears stressed at times and they do seem to calm her down.”
For all that Lindsay does wrong, for all of her crackie activities and drama and shenanigans, I kind of think being a chain-smoker is the least crackie thing she does. I’m not claiming that it’s healthy or good or anything, but it’s not like she’s hitting the pipe in between takes. Smoking cigs probably does calm her.
