Dina Lohan: Lindsay didn’t want to play a drug addict

Dina Lohan is really trying to insist that we believe her daughter Lindsay backed out of the role as porn star and drug addict Linda Lovelace in the movie Inferno. She’s practically cramming it down our throats that Lindsay turned the role down. Methinks doth protest too much, Dina.

It makes sense that she would turn the role down, considering that it would be weird for her to tap into her own personal experiences to play a drug addict. But Lindsay was adamant on playing this role for the longest time and even the director was behind her. Until recently, that is. The director has since said that she’s opted to go with Malin Ackerman for the role, instead of Lindsay.

Dina said, “The movie is about a drug addict and a porn star…it is hard when you are a serious actor with what she has been through, we don’t need that. Lindsay was disappointed because she really wanted to do it, but she felt that it would not be good for her after what she has experienced. It was hard for her to turn it down, because it was an amazing role.”

Perhaps she finally got around to reading the script for the part?

Still, Dina persists, saying, “She felt it wasn’t right to take that role after what she had been through, and play a drug addict. She made the ultimate decision, she always does.”

What do you think happened?
