Ben Affleck will never hire Lindsay Lohan for a film. Ever. Never, ever.

The countdown has already started. I’m giving Lindsay Lohan two whole weeks before she does something incredibly crackie, like fall out of a club covered in cocaine or something like that. Place your bets. After pushing all of these “Lindsay is taking her sobriety so seriously, she’s going to stay in rehab extra days!” stories, Lindsay left rehab late Tuesday and she made sure to get pap’d in a “cute” outfit of course. Apparently, she’s all legit now. Except for therapy. She’s going to need a lot of therapy:

The rehab facility that Lindsay Lohan has called home for weeks sent a letter to the judge in her probation case … saying LiLo will lapse back into drug and alcohol abuse if she doesn’t get more court-ordered therapy … and guess what, the judge agreed.

TMZ obtained a copy of the letter from Cliffside Malibu, in which CEO and founder Richard Taite tells the judge, Lindsay needs 3, 50-minute sessions a week for the next 15 months (18 months from last May). Then Taite gives an ominous warning: “If these sessions are not required by the court and attendance verified once a month to ensure accountability, it is a set up for almost certain failure.”

The judge agreed in open court this morning, and ordered that Lindsay stay in therapy and prove a year from November that she’s complied. Meanwhile in court, Lindsay’s lawyer Shawn Holley showed up with proof Lindsay successfully completed her 90 days of rehab.

[From TMZ]

Three 50-minute sessions a week… I don’t think I could talk about myself that much every week. I would probably fill that time with gossip. Gossip about Lindsay Lohan. Obviously, I would need a therapist who liked talking about celebrities. Anyway, Lindsay so isn’t going to take the therapy part seriously at all. She’ll find some hack who will agree to meet Lindsay at a bar and their “therapy sessions” will involve tequila shots. Either that or Lindsay will counter-offer one beej a month for glowing therapy reports.

Yesterday, I discussed the rumor/report that Lindsay was up for a role in Ben Affleck’s new movie Live By Night. The rumor was started by Roger Friedman, a respected film/gossip reporter/columnist, although the rumor did have the whiff of boozy Dina Lohan. Well, Ben Affleck’s people are shutting it down hard:

Well, that didn’t take long. Within hours of her release from a 90-day, court-mandated stint in rehab, Lindsay Lohan has already made a return to the rumor mill — in the form of erroneous casting stories.

According to reports, the troubled starlet has already been in talks to take on a role as a waitress with a heart of gold in Ben Affleck’s upcoming project, Live by Night. But, a source close to the movie tells Us Weekly, the rumors couldn’t be further from the truth.

“It’s not true,” the source said. “First off, no one has been cast. [Lohan] will not be cast in any role in the movie. She is not being considered for any role in the movie. She won’t be in the movie.”

Lohan, 27, made plenty of headlines in the lead-up to, filming of, and aftermath of her last movie, The Canyons, but is in no rush to jump into the next project, having even reportedly booked a one-way ticket to Europe, according to TMZ.

In an interview with Piers Morgan prior to her stint in rehab, Lohan admitted that she thought traveling would benefit her more than being confined to a building.

“I think there are other things I could do instead of going to a rehab center that would benefit me more,” she said at the time. “The best thing they could do for me would be to make me go abroad to different countries and work with children.”

She will next take part in an eight-episode docu-series on Oprah Winfrey’s OWN network, as well as guest-host with outspoken Chelsea Handler on her show, Chelsea Lately.

“Lindsay seems totally fine, her inner circle really do think that this time she is legit getting her act together,” a source close to the actress told Us. “In all honesty, yeah, she has had her bad moments and made some bad choices, but when you get to know Lindsay, she is really a powerful and captivating woman when you hear what she has to say.”

“I wish more people were able to see that side of her, but it looks like she’s on her way!” the source added.

[From Us Weekly]

That source sounded like boozy Dina to me again! As for the Affleck stuff… obviously. Obviously the guy who just won a Best Director Picture Oscar is not going to cast Lindsay Lohan in his next movie. What’s funny is that Affleck (or the “source”) feels the need to be SO extreme with shutting it down. It’s not just “this rumor isn’t true.” It’s “This rumor is not true and it will never be true because Ben Affleck would never, ever, EVER consider hiring Lindsay Lohan.” You have to shut it down like that with her. If you hedge and leave some room for interpretation, she’ll leech her way into more stories, more drama, more crack foolery.

    What a train wreck. She is the poster child of all anti-drug initiatives. What a diet of drugs and cigarettes do. She looks 20 years older.

  2. Earthto kelly says:

    Ah, the lines, “the whiff of a boozy Dina Lohan” and ” fall out of a club covered in cocaine” have made my morning :) . I wish my job involved writing these words daily,

  3. brin says:

    Hahaha…nice try, Dina. No way Ben Affleck is riding the crack train!

  4. Willa says:

    God! When were the last 2 pictures taken? She looks like sh*t!

  5. Mia 4S says:

    The whole Affleck rumor proves again that she is no RDJ. She’s not interested in paying her dues and earning respect. It’s Oscar now or nothing! She’s completely full of herself.
    Remember, not all addicts are bad people…but some bad people are addicts.

  6. FLORC says:

    Ang Lee won best director for Life Of Pi.
    Didn’t Ben win an Oscar for best original screenplay GWH and Best Picture Argo?

    • Chinoiserie says:

      Yeah he did not won Best Director last year Ang Lee did. Argo won the Best Picture and Affleck won an Oscar for producing it. He was not even nominated for Best Director and never has been. People are so excited for his comeback that they forget that.

  7. Anon33 says:

    ITA with Mia. She couldn’t even let one day go by before starting up the same old types of planted stories and rumors. It doesn’t bode well.

  8. Noreen says:

    God, she’s horrible. And she looks too, too, too much like her crazy mother in those photos (the ones in the pink dress).

  9. blue marie says:

    was there ever a real question that he would hire her?

  10. swax says:

    Wow, when were those last 2 pics taken?

  11. Ramblingirl says:


    Everyone deserves a second chance, Ben;)

    • Leah says:

      but ben worked his way up again, no one would hire him for a while there. he directed his own movie gone baby gone and that was really the start of his comeback 6 years ago, so it didnt happen overnight. Lohan should start small and not expect to be catapulted straight into the a-list for no reason.

    • Emily C. says:

      Making a bad movie is nothing like what Lindsay Lohan has done with her life. And she has had more than one “second” chance.

      There are plenty of hard-working actresses who are not assholes and who could really use the break of being cast in an Affleck movie.

  12. NeNe says:

    Finally someone is not going to lower their standards by having this train wreck in their movie. I give him mad props!

  13. Talie says:

    Yeah, Dina probably was saying all this mess at the premier when in reality Lindsay just had a meeting with a casting person.

    • Polk8dot says:

      Nah, that would require too much effort on Blohan’s part, and an actual idiot on the other side of that conversation for having agreed to a meeting in the first place.
      No, Cracken most likely just heard that Benji is making another movie, and wistfully mused to herself ‘Oh, that would be a perfect way to MAKE PEOPLE take me seriously’. In her diseased mind that equals, or even surpasses, the actual casting.

      Gotta LOL at the vehemence of the denial statement from Benji. Its almost like he’s afraid of getting koodies from her, via any association. AWESOME!

  14. Skins says:

    I’m sure she will get chances to work just based on her possible freak show ability to sell some tickets. But to me, first of all she can’t act. She was a Disney child actor, which doesn’t really require acting. She has been terrible in pretty much every adult role she has tried. And even if she somehow learned to act, the crackvoice will destroy any role she tries to do. How could she be taken seriously in any role with that horrible cracked out voice, unless she was playing a crackhead. Maybe that is her future, playing nothing but crackheads.

  15. Moec23 says:

    Wow! I have gray hair, am older than her, and am sleep deprived due to baby and I STILL look younger than her!

    • Emily C. says:

      I’m 36 years old and have aged a lot in the past three years due to constant pain from disability. Just as an objective measurement: I have far fewer lines around my eyes than she does, and they are not as deep. She used to be so pretty, too. Though it’s not the lines that make her not pretty; it’s her.

    • MyCatLoves TV says:

      I’m 56 and have also dealt with chronic pain & disability for fifteen years….and even I look better. I may not be as thin but as I’ve learned in my life, skinny ain’t everything.

  16. Miss M says:

    Phew! A “source” with common sense!

  17. Carol says:

    “The best thing they could do for me . . .” Well, there is a big part of her problem there. You are supposedly an adult now, sweetie; you can do things for yourself now.

  18. TheCountess says:

    Jeebus. Having that thumbnail of Leah Remini adjacent to that of Linds is just a brutal reinforcement of how crappy LL looks at twenty-seven, and how far Lohan is from ever reclaiming her looks. Remini (43) looks like she could pass for early thirties; Lindsay, on the other hand, doesn’t look a day under forty-five.

  19. Kiddo says:

    I think it’s too soon for anyone to hire her, and I say that with her interests in mind.

  20. janie says:

    Thank goodness Ben sees this for what it is & gets that her rehab will be the same as all the other times. I hope I’m wrong. I don’t think she will survive if she goes back to her old ways.

  21. Emily C. says:

    she has had her bad moments and made some bad choices

    Like throwing herself on the floor to have a tantrum in front of her then-girlfriend Ronson and Ronson’s mother? Kidnapping people? Driving while drunk repeatedly? Stealing?

    Lindsay has f*ed up so much, it’s way beyond “had her bad moments” or “made some bad choices”. She was (probably still is) an asshole and a complete mess. Until we start hearing her “sources” admitting that, I don’t think she’s going to get anywhere.

  22. Christin says:

    So she’s just so captivating when you listen to her, the source claims…. Actions and repeated behavior patterns speak volumes! I am glad Ben isn’t giving her ANY time!

  23. IShouldBeWorking says:

    If she was smart, she’d try for the Sharknado sequel.

    What I worry about is that she will overdose, which commonly happens when a person dries out and then uses again. They immediately jump in to their pre-rehab doses, and their bodies cannot take it.

  24. dorothy says:

    I don’t think anybody, with the exception of Dina believed Affleck would ever cast her in his movie.

  25. Garrett says:

    It’s not just Ben who wouldn’t hire her. It’s anyone in Hollywood who doesn’t want to deal with her. And that’s basically everyone. But there is always a wild card in the bunch.

  26. MeowuiRose says:

    My heart hurts for her because her life is so sad and out of control. It’s all her own doing but still hard to see.

    • sugarsugar88 says:

      Those are the exact types of sentiments from all of her “yes” people that have perpetuated her idiotic behavior. She will never learn that her actions are unacceptable until people completely stop giving in to her. I’m shocked that she doesn’t see that all of her potential roles have basically dried up because of her nonsense! She is absolutely delusional.

  27. CAM says:

    Why does she have to go overseas to work with children? Are children in the UK any worse off than those in the U.S? To me that just sounds like a well-crafted PR soundbite, and will never be anything more than that.

  28. OrangeBlohan says:

    Geez these pics and the fuzzy pink sweater pics never fail to bring home how bad her life had really gotten. I hope she can clean her life up, because I don’t think she will survive much more.

  29. mata says:

    RDJ also had talent. A big part of the problem is also the “wasted talent” myth associated with her. She was a child star who got some success by playing herself. Anything she’s done in the last 10 years has shown a very mediocre talent. If she hadn’t become known strictly as tabloid fodder, she probably would have worked steadily, but had a lack luster career.

    Even if Lindsay gets her shit together (and I really hope she does), she wouldn’t be anybody’s first choice based on talent.

  30. Susie Q says:

    Woah! How about a little notice when posting pics like the last two? You know that video where the face jumps out at you and scares the hell out you, it was kinda like that..

  31. lisa says:

    she kind of looks like tan mom in the top pics

  32. val says:

    She was good when she was younger. I really expected so much more from Lindsay. It’s so sad that these child stars do not have more responsible people guiding them It’s a shame really because she didn’t have to turn out like this.

  33. Mom2two says:

    It goes beyond the partying and the addictions. The girl is a nightmare on set. That’s why Ben’s people shut it down so hard. They don’t want even a whiff of Lohan attached to the movie.
    If Lohan wants a respectable career back she is going to have to what RDJ did, work her way back up and be professional on set. Time will tell if she (and her ego) will do that.

  34. Nina says:

    Wait, wait, wait. She claims to be taking her sobriety seriously yet the first thing she does is run to ‘Are You There Vodka, It’s Me Chelsea’ Handler? She’ll get drunk off the fumes!

    Cracktastrophe in 3..2…

  35. Cool Phosphorescent Shimmer says:

    I’m so pleased the Affleck source shut her down so quickly and so completely and that FINALLY directors are starting to realize what she is all about, not just “on set” but in the whole process. They cannot be nice and let her pretend to have her shot at these roles because then the whole production has her name attached to it in every article, and producers have to lug all her dirty baggage by association even if she never ever had any connection with the project at all.

  36. Holden says:

    OMG, she looks like hammered $hit in those pictures. And who in their right mind would let her anywhere near children? She’d use them as drug mules.

  37. littlestar says:

    I don’t think Lindsay will ever get a 100th “second chance” to be in a decent movie ever again. Not only does she have a horrible reputation (and that reporter piece about her on the set of the Canyons cemented that), a bad attitude and self-entitlement issues, and addictions, she’s reaching the age where female actors in Hollywood are no longer as “useful” (stupid Hollywood). As well, she used to be beautiful but she’s ruined her looks with boozing, drugs, long nights of partying, and horrible plastic surgery and fillers. Plus, she has hanger-ons like Dina and Michael, two people that EVERYONE loathes.

    Yup. I really think it’s true. The only chances at ANOTHER comeback are reality shows for the desperate OWN Network. Say buy-bye to Hollywood, Lindsay.

  38. JFerber says:

    Because Ben Affleck is such a paragon of virtue himself, he couldn’t have a mere actress besmirch his reputation. Of course, he’s done drugs himself, was hooked to online gambling and most probably has cheated on his wife for years. I think Lindsay WAS a good actress in the past. She was really great in Parent Trap as a child and she did well in Tina Fey’s Mean Girls. I bet Tina Fey would give Lindsay a chance if she maintains sobriety. Addicts do bad things. A colleague’s brother stole the family’s furniture to pay for junk. I do wish the best for Lindsay.

    • JoJo says:

      Agreed! I think she’s a complete train wreck at this point. But she was really promising years ago, so it’s sad. Her crazy parents can’t help. I 100% get why Ben wouldn’t cast her, BUT he’s getting a bit elitist considering the path he’s traveled. I don’t like his attitude recently. He’s a good director, but as someone else said, he’s no Daniel Day Lewis in the acting dept.

  39. msw says:

    Looking at pictures of Lindsay from about 2007 on just makes me sad. She was a cute girl with a promising career ahead of her, and she threw it all away on drama, drugs, alcohol, thievery, and who knows whatever other bs she’s gotten into.

    But, I still have hope for her. She could still right her ship if she wants to. I don’t think she’s completely brainless, even though she acts like an idiot. I suspect she’s extremely entitled, in pretty serious denial, or just doesn’t care about herself anymore. Maybe all three. I hope she actually bothers attending her court ordered therapy instead of screwing around, trying to get out of it because it’s inconvenient or she just doesn’t want to do it. I’m rooting for her to get better, just because she can.

  40. Ron says:

    People love a good comeback. She is really going to have to work at it to achieve one. She’s done so much harm to herself and her image. It’s sad. I’ve said it before, if I was repping her I would get her on Dancing with the Stars, it would show her commitment to something and give her a chance to “redeem” her image very publicly. I think she is going to have a hard time due to her fame whoring/drunk/useless parents who have viewed her for her entire life as a paycheck. They are disgusting.

  41. skuddles says:

    The ONLY way Lilo will maintain sobriety is if she is put into a lock-down rehab facility forever. Her and Dina are probably tossing back shots right now.

  42. Lark says:

    What’s interesting is Roger Friedman does have a lot of credibility…I can’t see him falling for a Dina plant. I wonder if her name was legitimately tossed around for a tiny role, before all the drama came out about how bad she was working on set in The Canyons?

  43. lenje says:

    I actually feel sad for this girl. Hopefully she’ll be willing to accept the help she needs.

  44. Shoe_Lover says:

    that first picture kills me because that is a beautiful vintage dress that probably had to be destroyed after being touched by her.

    the second and third photos will haunt my nightmares

  45. Happyhat says:

    I like looking at pictures of LiLo, cos it’s helping me quit smoking.

    Like,, “See, even if you’re a Hollywood ‘star’, you can’t escape looking like shit if you treat your body badly. So, the longer you quit smoking, the more you’ll look better than LiLo!”

    It’s helping.

    • OhMyMy says:

      Happyhat: Please stick with it. You’ll be so much healthier for quitting. My sister is going through treatment for smoking related cancer right now. Trust me, it ain’t pretty. That crap sucks your body into a dry husk and ages you 30 years.

      Good luck.

  46. michael lohan says:

    How dare you speak of my daughter like that. Especially, when on the worst of days, she has more talent in her small toe, than you have in your entire family. If you have something to say about my daughter are any of my family members take it up with me. Be a man and say to my face Kaizer. you are pathetic and you sicken me. Your life exist for a putrid blog that no one even cares about, while we make in one day what you make in a year.. Loser. the best part is we help others with what we have and you try to do damage even though you don’t have it
