Unlike gays, strippers, laid-off-but-parentally-subsidized yo-pros, and maybe even Dickinsonian shut-ins, Lindsay Lohan does not love a Depression. Frequently out of work and overspending Samantha Ronson’s life savings, Lindsay is learning the True Meaning of Fiscal Responsibility, beating certain unnamed insurance corporations to that particular epiphany.
She confesses to Nylon, “It’s scary when you realize, ‘Oh my God, I’m not working. And I have a house to pay for now.’ … And there’s been some things I’ve really wanted to do.” Seeing Lindsay evince such cognizance, you can’t not admire the starlet’s candidness and pluck. She’s also been chatting with maybe-manstress Sean Penn. “I spoke to him the other day. We’re trying to get Seth Rogen for this project, but Seth won’t call us back. So call us back, Seth, if you’re reading this!” But Rogen did read “this.” And he said, “That’s not true — I never got a call from anyone that works for her.” Well then. Still, it’s refreshing to see her embracing economic realities by taking on cheesy make-up ads and potentially dicey indies. But there lies a little promise in life as a model too. The agency representing Kate Moss and Gisele Bündchen’s courtship of Lohan hasn’t exactly been tacit. But failing everything (that’s more often the case than not these days), Lindsay could resort to Ilene Chaiken, the plot-hole-prone helmer of The L Word, as she’s probably still casting for the series’ spin-off.
