After being branded as “unpredictable” by her The Canyons director Paul Schrader, Lindsay Lohan has written a brief letter to her fans via her personal website. In the letter, she explained exactly why she was not in attendance at the Venice Film Festival to promote her upcoming movie.
At a press conference during the festival, Schrader reportedly said “For the last sixteen months I’ve been hostage, by own choosing, to a very talented but unpredictable actress. She was supposed to be here today, she said she would be, but she is not.”
Lohan wrote in response: “…I have to clear up these reports. I was never confirmed to attend… my focus is on my health and well-being. Plain and simple, it is of the utmost importance.”
Below is the letter from Lohan.
The 27-year old-actress recently completed a 90-day treatment program for substance abuse. Since leaving the Malibu facility, she has vowed to cleanup her life. At the moment, she has so far swapped nights out on the town in favour of spending time with her family.
The Canyons saw its world premiere in London in July, made a limited theatrical release to cinemas on August 2 and is screening out of competition at the Venice Film Festival.
