[Gossip] Liz & Dick Producer Says It Was a Pain Having Lindsay Lohan Involved
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 11.15.2012



The producer of Liz & Dick says that it was a nightmare jumping through hurdles to get Lindsay Lohan involved with it. E! Online reports that Larry Thomas told reporters during a conference call that all the clauses in her contract were difficult to work with. Check out the highlights:

On producing the film: "Producing a movie with Lindsay is not for the faint of heart. I turned 50 shades of white actually during the production."

On the hoops he had to jump through to sign her: "We had serious challenges to deal with due to her probation and her history. Therefore we had to make a deal where there were pages and pages of ‘what if' clauses. There never was a ‘what if she can act' clause. It was about, ‘What if there is a car accident? What if there is a violation of her probation [and she's] incarcerated?' Those ‘what ifs' were plenty. She might be the most insured actress who ever walked on a soundstage. We tried to insure ourselves against things that could and, in fact, did happen."

On the car accident that shut down production for a day: "I was financially at risk myself. It was a challenge."

On her 'truly riveting' performance: "Overall, my gosh, relative to the performance we got and the movie we were able to make because of her, the pain was worth the pleasure. And the audience is going to benefit from the risk we took and the reward that was gained...I know there are a lot of people out there who are naysayers. And I think they're gonna be shocked—and people who have believed in her, their belief is gonna be vindicated...People will see that Grant Bowler as Richard Burton just steals your heart and Lindsay Lohan breaks it. I'm guardedly optimistic that the public will like the movie very much. I believe if everybody takes a deep breath and focuses on her artistry instead of her antics, they will enjoy a pretty riveting movie."
