Lohan withdraws from Manson family movie: spokeswoman
LOS ANGELES (AFP) — Lindsay Lohan has withdrawn from an upcoming movie about convicted murderer Charles Manson, her publicist said Friday, following an Internet report she had been axed from the project.
The 21-year-old actress was due to play Manson family follower Nancy Pitman in the film "Manson Girls", but has pulled out of the production because of scheduling conflicts, spokeswoman Leslie Sloane said.
"She is not able to do the film as she has signed on to the film 'Labor Pains' and the TV show 'Ugly Betty' and the dates conflict," Sloane confirmed in an email to AFP. "She was interested in Manson if her schedule permitted."
News of Lohan's withdrawal from "Manson Girls" came as the respected movie industry blog, deadlinehollywooddaily.com reported that the actress had been dumped because other actors refused to work with her.
Lohan, regarded as one of Hollywood's brightest young actresses, has seen her career falter in recent years amid a string of personal problems which have included arrests for drink-driving, drug possession and a stint in rehab.
Her last movie was last summer's box-office flop "I Know Who Killed Me", which suffered a critical mauling and earned Lohan two awards at the Razzies, the annual parody of the Oscars that honors the worst of Hollywood.
Lohan has also been criticized in the past for her performance on set, with the producer of 2007 film "Georgia Rule", James G. Robinson infamously blasting her in a letter for her repeated late arrivals and absence from the set.
Robinson described Lohan's behavior as "discourteous, irresponsible and unprofessional," and accused the starlet of acting "like a spoiled child."-------------------------
