Lindsay Lohan Is “Brilliant”

May 4th, 2007 // 7 Comments

Here’s Lindsay entering and leaving the Ivy. The Ivy is a restaurant in L.A. where you basically go to get your picture taken. Photogs live outside of it in small huts. Huts that have plumbing and DVD players. So if you’re a celeb and need an ego massage, you roll up at the Ivy and flashbulbs go off. I wonder if the food is good. Lindsay has recently garnered praise from her “Georgia Rule” co-star Felicity Huffman . I *heart* Felicity because she’s talented and no-nonsense and played a trans and totally pulled it off. Remember when she had that incredibly realistic pee by the side of the highway in “Transamerica”? That was a jolt. But I wonder about Felicity’s judgement in this matter. Jane Fonda hated Lohan’s coke-ridden ass. Jane knows what time is it.

Felicity Huffman thinks her costar Lindsay Lohan’s performance in Georgia Rule is so strong that the public will forget that the young star got chewed out for acting up during production.

“Once people see the movie,” Huffman tells Parade magazine in its upcoming issue, “God willing, the performances will eclipse any gossip.”

In the movie, which opens May 11, Huffman, 44, and Lohan, 20, portray the stormy side of mother-daughter relations. As described by Huffman, “This character was so abrasive to play that I didn’t have the wherewithal to step back and think of it as about me being a mother. I just kept thinking of it as my relationship with Lindsay Lohan.”

And that, according to Huffman, was something good. “To me, Lindsay was a complete and utter delight. The minute I met her I just loved her. She meets you with an open heart and wide-open eyes and gets right in there. She cares about the work. She throws herself in, 100 percent,” says Huffman.

“I just adored her. She’s fantastic in the movie. It doesn’t get any better than what she did. Brilliant.”

Really? Well, she was good in “Mean Girls”. But…”brilliant”? Felicity? Honey?

    First we have to witness dirty things teens do so the movie is not a nice homey picture.. as characters act out their troubles, then they try to save the rebellious teen with morals and good intentions, social graces.. ha-ha ho-ho, forbidden in liberal times. Knowing the real actors and how this isn’t possible in real life nor ever going to happen it seems hilariously miscast.. you know it’s another boring southern belle gets dignity and keeps doing the same things movie.

    Georgia Rule Movie Synopsis: Rebellious teenager Rachel (Lindsay Lohan) screams, swears, drinks and is–in a word–uncontrollable. With her latest car crash, Rachel has broken the final rule in mom Lily’s (Felicity Huffman) San Francisco home. With nowhere else to take the impulsive and rambunctious girl, Lily hauls her daughter to the one place she swore she’d never return…her own mother’s Idaho farm.
    Matriarch Georgia (Jane Fonda) is not your typical sweet and doting grandmother. She lives her life by a number of unbreakable rules, demanding anyone who shares her home do the same–God comes first and hard work comes a very close second. Now saddled with raising the young woman, it will require each patient breath she takes to understand Rachel’s fury.

    But as Rachel succumbs to her summer of misery and shakes up the tiny Mormon town, Georgia notices something is changing within her granddaughter.

    I’m thinkin’ Lindsay walked in on Felicity doin’ some blow & is now being blackmailed. That would be the only reason I can imagine her calling LL “brilliant”.

    well, cory kennedy said the food at the ivy sucks, and because i trust 17 yr olds to make culinary decisions for me, i won’t be dining there any time soon. (never mind the fact i’m a broke student living in rhode island. whatever.)

    Ok I realize Lindsay’s personalize life is a little fucked, but since when does that mean she’s a bad actress? I think Felicity Huffman is just telling the truth. I think that Lindsay Lohan is extremely talented, and it’s unfortunate that she’s so damn crazy. Because she’d probably be really respected acting wise right now. There is really no reason for people to think that she sucks. I’m sure there were a lot of actresses in the 40s and 50s who were equally as crazy as Lindsay, but back then we weren’t all up in their business, so we were able to just respect their work onscreen. Just leave her alone already.

    Well said Desiree!
