Lindsay Lohan’s reputation has cost her a film role. Author Allison Burnett refused to cast Lindsay Lohan in the adaptation of her acclaimed novel Undiscovered Gyrl because she felt the actress’ troubled image would work against the movie.
The Mean Girls star had been in discussions for the lead role in the adaptation of acclaimed book about a teenager blogging through her sexual awakening, but Burnett has revealed that she’s passed on casting Lindsay because of her troubled tabloid image. The role will instead go to Disney pole dancer and future Z-Lister Miley Cyrus.
“She (Lohan) is a wonderful actress, but her fame and baggage would only work against her,” Burnett says.
