It’s been almost a decade since Chris and Linds shared the screen for 2006’s Just My Luck, but he’s just now talking about working with Lindsay—and experience he compared to Beatlemania.
“It was a real cyclone of insanity, like being around The Beatles,” he told The Hollywood Reporter. “It was fascinating to watch, and in hindsight it’s a really distinct moment in someone’s life when you see what’s really wonderful about what we get to do and what’s really dangerous about it.”
Of course, since the movie’s release on May 12, 2006, Lindsay has been to rehab six times, jailed five times and arrested more times than we can even count.
So it’s no surprise that Lindsay can be a handful of a colleague; check out what nine other people who worked with LiLo had to say about her professionalism and behavior.
“There were exercises in patiences and there were exercises in tolerance and I believe it could have been smoother at times. We certainly took our time in a lot of ways, where I would have preferred to be shooting.”
- Grant Bowler, costar – Liz & Dick
“Today I am free. In the past 16 months, I have been hostage to Lindsay Lohan. She is a great actress, she should be here, but her behavior is unspeakable.”
- Paul Schrader, director – The Canyons
“Producing a movie with Lindsay Lohan is not for the faint of heart. When we finally decided to hire her, we had serious challenges to deal with… due to her probation and her history.”
- Larry Thompson, producer – Liz & Dick
“There were days when she would scream and yell and cry and refuse to come out… Lindsay was like a child lashing out.”
- James Deen, costar – The Canyons
“I just want to take her in my arms and hold her until she becomes a grown-up. She’s so young and she’s so alone out there in the world in term of structure and, you know, people to nurture her. And she’s so talented.”
- Jane Fonda, costar – Georgia Rule
“Day one she was fabulous. She was on time. Hit every mark. Made us look off our game, which we weren’t. Then we had to deal with day two…. She had an ear ache and was a little bit, four hour late.”
- Charlie Sheen, star – Anger Management
“You never know what’s going on [with Lindsay]. She gives you a lot to work off of, I really enjoyed being in the scenes with her. You’re never bored.”
- Nolan Gerard Funk, costar – The Canyons
“Gonna be a long day! Some people show up late and just throw a wrench in things. Not cool! I’d rather be an hour early (I was) than 5 minutes late.”
- Dot-Marie Jones, star – Glee
“You have acted like a spoiled child and in so doing have alienated many of your coworkers and endangered the qualities of this picture.”
- James G. Robinson, studio exec – Morgan Creek Productions (Georgia Rule)
