Lindsay Lohan thanked her fans with a text message at the Hollywood premiere of her new film The Canyons.

The troubled actress, who was unable to attend the event, sent a few words to producer Braxton Pope, who read them out aloud before the screening on August 6, reported Variety.

"I just want to thank everyone for believing in me and this film and for your support," he said, adding: "Please make sure Paul does not get naked again," referring to an incident on-set when director Paul Schrader took his clothes off to coax Lindsay into filming an orgy scene.

Lindsay tweeted about spending time with her family on the night, writing: "Loving spending time with the fam :) #movienight."

Paul explained that his leading actress initially decided to skip the premiere, following her recent stint in rehab and interview on Oprah Winfrey's TV show. She changed her mind at the last minute, but wouldn't have made it to Los Angeles from New York in time.

"Lindsay lives in a world of crisis. I know she wanted to come but I guess the drama wasn't sufficient," the director said.

The 27-year-old, who left rehab after a court-ordered 90 days stay, makes her big-screen comeback in thriller The Canyons alongside porn actor James Deen and Gus Van Sant, which will have its world premiere at the Venice Film Festival.

Braxton reassured the audience that the actress would reunite with the cast at the Venice Film Festival premiere and said she would be accompanied by "her sober companion".

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Taurus:

Take a friend's advice with a pinch of salt. Although you love this dreamer dearly, they don't have a realistic grasp of the situation. Trust your instincts instead. You've always taken great pride in your work ethic. Abandoning a project before it is finished will weigh on your conscience. Do the best you can with a severely reduced budget. The results won't be thrilling, but they will be respectable. Nobody will blame you for having to make bricks from straw.More
