Lindsay Lohan arrived just minutes before the screening for Scary Movie 5 began at the Hollywood premiere last night.
The troubled actress has garnered a reputation for tardiness and movie bosses were said to have warned her to be on time for the glitzy event in Hollywood on Thursday. There was speculation Lindsay would be accompanying her co-star Charlie Sheen to the premiere, but she arrived alone – just minutes before the screening started.
Wearing a tightly-fitting knee-length Dolce and Gabbana dress, Lindsay quickly walked along the red carpet and didn’t have time to greet fans eagerly waiting to see her. She was overheard exclaiming “Jesus” as she was confronted by a throng of photographers who had been anticipating her arrival.
Before breezing into the movie theatre she posed with Charlie, who planted a kiss on her cheek as they laughed together.
Scary Movie 5 director David Zucker says Lindsay is “really good” in the film, but admitted working with her was a challenge at times.
“She’s a troubled human and she was late a lot to the set,” he said, “But she knew her lines and she’s a good actress.
“This seems to be the business for all these addictions and craziness. Anybody has the potential to come back and straighten out.”
Other stars from the film were also in attendance, including Ashley Tisdale, Jerry O’Connell, Mike Tyson and Heather Locklear.
Lindsay’s much-publicised appearance in Charlie’s TV show Anger Management aired in the US last night.
The episode made references to drugs, theft and court dates, with the pair happy to crack jokes at their reputations as Hollywood hellraisers.
Lindsay played a “heightened” version of herself, with one scene showing her ending up in bed with Charlie’s therapist character.
Charlie appeared on US TV series The Tonight Show on Wednesday and fuelled rumours that he was frustrated with Lindsay’s behaviour on the set of Anger Management. The 26-year-old actress reportedly arrived late, vomited in the parking lot, lost her temper when she was asked to stay late to finish re-shoots and was even accused of taking home items from her wardrobe.
Although Charlie was reluctant to go into too much detail, he did confirm Lindsay had trouble with timekeeping.
"It was as though she had us held hostage because she gave us half the show," Charlie explained. "No, she had an 'ear ache' and was a little bit… four hours late. No, she was a couple of hours late. She was really not feeling well. We just worked around it.”
Charlie then paused for a moment and laughed before adding, "She was late, what can I say!"
Lindsay has until May 2 to check into a 90-day court-ordered stint in rehab, marking her sixth time in a treatment facility.
She is expected to attend the Coachella music festival this weekend.
