The CEO of Morgan Creek Productions, the film company producing Lindsay Lohan's latest film project, Georgia Rule, is not the only Hollywood personality who believes that Miss L. Lo acts unprofessional when she shows up late for work.
Fellow actor William H. Macy, who has seen firsthand Lindsay Lohan's lateness on the recent set of their upcoming biopic, Bobby, about the assassination of Bobby Kennedy, echoes the sentiment.
Macy points out that Lindsay showing up late is profoundly disrespectful to her fellow actors and crew, many of whom have missed family commitments with kids due to working late hours on her account, Macy, an accomplished, acclaimed actor as well as husband to Desperate Housewives' star Felicity Huffman and father of their two daughters, articulated out loud in People what many others in his industry are thinking, but not saying about Lindsay Lohan's recent lateness on set and overall childish behavior:
I think what an actor has to realize is that when you show up an hour late, 150 people have been scrambling to cover for you. There is not an apology big enough in the world to make 150 people scramble. It's nothing but disrespect. And Lindsay Lohan is not the only one... I worry about these young kids - 15, 18, 20 years old - who in the span of one year become millionaires and powerhouses. It's too much power for a kid that age to handle.
And you know what I say? Way to go, Bill!
Finally, a responsible parent steps forward to raise concern over these just barely adult movie stars like Lindsay who misuse their money and fame at other's expense.
Unlike her older, more mature cast-mates, Lindsay Lohan has shown that she lacks the maturity to prioritize work (and multi-million dollar movie contracts) over partying and late nights. Just ask Lindsay herself. In the latest Elle , Lindsay, who appears on the fashion magazine's cover, asks the public to lay off her mother and her mother's choice to go clubbing alongside her just-turned 20-year-old daughter, saying that her mother is "her best friend" and that's why they spend time out dancing into the wee hours of the night.
So enter the understated hero, William Macy. A sensible parental voice finally come forth through all the chaos surrounding Lindsay's erratic behavior. Which, it might be noted has landed her in the hospital in the morning for exhaustion, followed by dinner and dancing out that same night. It is one thing to be self-serving, and another to be so profoundly myopic in one's hedonistic search for pleasure that ordinary Moms and Dads on the set are missing dinner, baseball games, and other promises that have made to their children and spouses.
But Lindsay has just vowed to make it up to her castmates. I know, you must be guessing that she has promised to start showing up on time for the day's shoot schedule? No...that would cut into her clubbing hours and time with her hot new boyfriend.
Instead she showed up on the set with 500 cupcakes to make amends for her callous, yet unchanging behavior, with promises of a cast party she'll treat for once filming is a wrap. Guess she missed the message entirely. But at least some of the parents can take a frosted cupcake home to their kids for a breakfast treat and apologies for missing tucking them in at night.
