Lindsay Opts Out of "No Importance"

2/1/2007 5:59 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

In the wake of harsh criticism that Lindsay Lohan has not been taking her recovery seriously, TMZ has learned that Lindsay has decided not to star in the upcoming "A Woman of No Importance" so she can focus on getting better.

Lohan's publicist, Leslie Sloane Zelnik, tells TMZ that Lindsay is putting herself first and "decided not to push herself." Lohan, says Sloane, will be taking a few more months of downtime before she embarks on the press tour for the upcoming "Georgia Rule."

"Importance" is set to star Annette Bening. This is the second time Lohan has missed on an opportunity to work with the Oscar-nominated actress. Bening was originally cast as Lilo's mother in the hit "Freaky Friday," but had to bow out.

Lindsay is still slated for "The Best Time of Our Lives," shooting with Keira Knightley in London this spring.

It won't matter. She'll be back partying in a couple weeks.
She just doesn't want to give it up.
They say rehab isn't for those who need it, but for those who want it.

She decided to think about herself?? Isn't that what she's been doing and as a result of "thinking of herself", she shows up late to her movie sets and goes to the hospital because she is exhausted from partying too much and costing the movie millions of dollars??

Maybe next time she should "think about others" and not "herself" when it comes to being a professional "actress", but in her case not sure what to call her cause she is not an "actress"!!!

Give the girl a break, she's young and dumb, were'nt we all at that age!!!!! People make mistakes and do foolish things, especially at a young age. WHO ARE YOU OR WE TO JUDGE. Most have been there, done that....and some change, some dont. ONLY GOD CAN JUDGE ME NOW, or her now. Let her be, everyone learns from their own mistakes:)

Savannah, I agree, we who are older have alot of skeletons in our own closets. Without much of a parental figure to honestly help her this is a good thing. Mom's in it for mom.

the wise old owl    

It's refreshing to see Lindsay making GOOD choices for change. Her health is so much more important than taking on another Movie Role.

Besides what good would taking on the pressure of excepting another leading role in a movie IF SHE'S NOT AROUND TO ENJOY THE BENEFITS ???

This girl was burning the candle at both ends and it was only a matter of time before it " went out ". I hope she takes this new attitude on as " a permanent lifestyle. " Otherwise she will just be " another Statisic "

The 20 year old alcoholic whore & drug addict Lindsay Lohan was FIRED from the movie "A Woman of No Importance".

Lindsay Lohan was warned numerous times by ALL the Producers & Directors of her recent films that if she didn't straighten out her bizarre lifestyle NOW, her potential acting career would end NOW.

The spoiled rotten bitch Lindsay Lohan was too stupid and stoned to listen, so now her career is OVER.

YO Lindsay, maybe it's time to reconsider all those job offers from your numerous sexual partners in the XXX Industry. I hear they offer FREE drugs on set.
