Nobody Wants Lindsay Anywhere Near Machete

Casting Lindsay Lohan as a nun in Machete was clearly a publicity stunt by Robert Rodriguez, so that means he wants her doing interviews, right? Let’s not get carried away here. Us Weekly

Though the actress was released from postjail rehab on Aug. 24 after 22 days, a source tells the new Us Weekly Robert Rodriguez, co­director of her new movie, Machete, didn’t want her to attend an event for the film the next night. “He was frantically trying to track down her manager to make sure she didn’t go,” says the source. While a 20th Century Fox rep says it’s “not true,” the source tells Us, “She wasn’t welcome there.”

I wonder how Dina is gonna spin this. I don’t want to speculate, but it probably has something to do with a meeting with Alfred Hitchcock because he heard how great an actress Lindsay was so he rose from the grave to offer her a big movie role.
