It’s of no surprise that Lindsay Lohan thinks the #MeToo movement is filled with “weak” people, considering Lohan herself has yet to give an honest, authentic interview about her own troubled past. In fact, her “reality” show for OWN was almost unwatchable for that reason, because each and every time Lohan had a difficult day and simply could not get out of bed, she refused to film and only appeared back on camera when she felt bright and shiny again. Her disturbing “friends” enabled her, and when her life coach confronted her about relapsing on camera, that life coach was immediately fired. Lohan scolded her for making a private moment public, despite the fact that the show itself was meant to expose those private moments. Oprah lent her an olive branch that began with a post rehab one-on-one interview, and even that felt forced. Here’s a direct quote from Lohan’s interview with The Times:
“If it happens at that moment, you discuss it at that moment. You make it a real thing by making it a police report. I’m going to really hate myself for saying this, but I think by women speaking against all these things, it makes them look weak when they are very strong women. You have these girls who come out, who don’t even know who they are, who do it for the attention. That is taking away from the fact that it happened.”
Before bashing Lohan for her ignorant, tone-deaf comments, I’m going to simply feel sorry for her given that this is her perspective on being vulnerable. Perhaps I’m having a peaceful day, but I see no benefit on returning a sad statement with anger. When she learns the truth about vulnerability and strength, perhaps she will finally have a career comeback. Until then . . .
In what I can only assume is a classless attempt to attract attention, James Franco has once again taken aim at Lindsay Lohan, calling her “damaged.” Franco penned a short story for Vice, entitled, Bungalow 89, which revealed intimate details about his experience with the troubled Hollywood starlet. I won’t recount every detail, except to say that the unflattering sequence of events should be sacred, and if someone published my worst moments for the public to peruse, I’d be pissed. As for the trajectory of James Franco’s career and his poor PR choices, I predict he’ll one day empathize with Linday Lohan’s current professional problems.
