Adventure and discovery was the enticement that drew Lee Elders to this wild lawless land; the supernatural world of the Shuara that live in a mystical realm of ayahuasca-induced visions where the ethereal world is encased within our third dimensional reality. Along the way he discovered his true self - his Kakarma. However incredible some of the incidents may seem this is a true story.

Default Shirley's new movie

Shirley,

Your new movie "Poor things" sounds great. Your a great actress and I watch all your movies.

Please recast the Lohan role and give it to some wonderful up and comer who needs a chance to prove herself. Or just anybody but Lohan. I read that you are willing to work around her rehab and that just sickens me.

This poor girl needs to prove she wants to get well. Maybe it would humble her some and give her time for reflection if she actually had to EARN back the respect of her community instead of having a job waiting for her (I'm pretty sure she doesn't need the money by the way) and people willing to work around her behavior. Let her prove herself first. She has had second, third, fourth, (need I go on?) chances. I and many people like me feel that those in the movie industry who keep hiring these out of control individuals are enablers.

In the real world this girl would either be on the streets or straightened out. I opt for staightened out because most employers do not allow unlimited "sick" days. If a prospective employer were to do a background check on her today, she would not be hired. She would be a risk, and believe me, she would truly be motivated to straighten out her life so she could get a job.

In my state, rehab is free for the indigent. I know, because I picked up a friend the other day. There were no massages, passes out, or gourmet food. Visitation was limited. But the program focused on rehabilitation. Definately not where someone would go unless they really wanted help.

Please make your movie and get it out as soon as possible. You don't need a headlining trainwreck to promote it; that seems so beneath you. Unfortunately, people no longer watch her movies and see her character. They see "that poor spoiled kid", and it is distracting. Please hire someone who will not be a distraction from what sounds like a delightful plot line.

Christina

Christina is right!
Let this girl either get well or crash & burn on her own! DO NOT wait for her. She needs help, it is obvious. My daughter turns 21 in August and I'd beat her a$$ if she EVER did any of these things.........don't help her out, besides, she sucks as an actress.....

Christina, may I ask where you read that about Shirley "willing to work around her rehab" ?

And then I need to ask (for my understanding) why you think Shirley has absolute control of any project she is involved in?

Looking forward to your response. Thanks

In the spirit of helping Lindsay Lohan and her rehabilitation, we have been asked by Lindsay to comply with her wishes to continue working on "Poor Things." We are trying to rearrange the shooting schedule to facilitate her working at the end of the shoot to coincide with the completion of her rehabilitation. We wish her love and the blending of mind, body, and spirit

Producers


So this is a phony press release (?), because it is attributed to her. I have no idea what you mean about my thinking Shirley has complete control over all the projects she's involved in, but her name is on this press release, and as a producer of the film I'm pretty sure she can say who acts in the film and who doesn't.

I always thought of her as a very talented and powerful star. She is one of the last glamorous actresses still working.
  1. Please let us know if this press release is a phony or if she really has chosen to work around the rehab.
  2. Am I mistaken about her being a producer of the film?

Looking forward to your response. Thanks

This is a quote from the New York Times article this morning: "For Lohan, a Mix of Sympathy and Scorn" By SHARON WAXMAN, Published: May 31, 2007

"To be hired again, some said, Ms. Lohan might have to be more than sober. She would need perhaps to post her salary as bond, or pay for her own insurance, even on an independent film.

Ms. Lohan was meant to start a new movie this week, an independent production titled “Poor Things,” about two female con artists, also starring Shirley MacLaine. The film’s producers met on Wednesday to decide whether to replace Ms. Lohan or hold off while she spent a month under wraps."

I'm not certain where Ms. Waxman received her information but it appearing in the New York Times gives it a credibilty it wouldn't have received if it were the National Enquirer.

Default Lohan

This is what is so wretched about Hollywood. THE GIRL DOES NOT DESERVE TO WORK AT ALL!!!!!!! Why they keep casting this drunk, drugged out, unprofessional, ungrateful skank is beyond me. I expect more from well respected professionals than to work with this nasty little troll. There are so many actresses that can do a BETTER job than she can and will not be a pain in the ass on the set. Natalie Portman!!! Lindsay's movies continue to BOMB over and over again. Does that tell you NOTHING????? THE PUBLIC HATES HER!!! Movie goers do NOT want to see her....GET IT THROUGH YOUR HEADS HOLLYWOOD! She wants to be a drunk, she wants to do drugs and she is NOT in rehab to get help, but to PR herself and keep out of jail. DUH!!!! She will be in a rehab and leave to go get loaded on her birthday and go make films...whatever...just like last time. It did no good before, it will do no good now. She is a gutter drunk that LIKES IT! And the club owners should have their businesses SHUT DOWN for serving minors!!! If it is the last thing I ever do, I will MAKE LAWS APPLY IN HOLLYWOOD if it kills me! This is my dieing wish.
