Lindsay Lohan's Movie Excuse -- Total BS

5/25/2010 5:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Lindsay Lohan made it clear to the court that she didn't wanna wear a SCRAM bracelet because she thought it would get in the way of an upcoming movie shoot in Texas -- problem is, no such shoot exists.

TMZ has contacted the producers of the only two motion picture projects Lindsay is currently attached to -- "Machete" and "Inferno" -- and they both made it very clear that LiLo has no business in Texas.

A rep for "Machete" tells us there ARE additional scenes being shot in Texas but, "according to the director, they don't include [Lindsay]."

As for "Inferno," a rep tells us, The Linda Lovelace biopic "doesn't plan on starting shooting 'till the beginning of August."  Also, it's not being shot in Texas -- so the SCRAM bracelet would have no affect on that film either.

Lindsay's attorney, Shawn Chapman Holley, relayed Lohan's excuse to Judge Marsha Revel on Monday -- but the judge didn't buy it anyway ... and forced her to SCRAM it up.

I feel sorry for Lindsey, she has no one to give her any direction, but she has had many chances and has blown them. You don't lie to a judge. If she messes up this time, she needs jail. Maybe she will then be sober and drug free when she gets out... but she needs to learn that rules apply to HER too. She needs to do what she has to to save her own life, before becoming another sad statistic. She looks so old at only 23.... too much drugs and alcohol can do that!

It's entirely possible that the producers had told her some reshoots were being done in Texas or that she assumed she *might* be involved in some shooting in Texas, etc. She probably heard the word "Texas" and just assumed she was involved. I'm sure if you asked *most* Hollywood actors the shooting schedule of their next few films, including locations, they couldn't tell you - not really important to them, as they have people who handle their schedules and make sure they get where they need to be.



I'm all for LiLo cleaning up her act, but I think we should give her a break on this one - I don't think it was a deliberate lie.

Lindsay has an excuse for everything - which 95% of the time are proven untrue. Hopefully Lindsay will realize her actions/credibility are suspect & "her fans" just don't swallow her statements as fact any longer.



Lindsay - don't talk the talk if you can't walk your talk.



Waiting to see published copy of French Police report of stolen passport/jewelery.



Waiting for Deputy DA Meyer's request for copy of pre-May 19th airfare ticket.



Just not buying your excuses anymore.

"This judge is a total bitch. She's treating her way worse than she would treat a non-celeb"



this could not be a more piece of crap statement.



Lindsay ONLY had to complete 13 alcohol classes. She's had since freaking OCTOBER to do this.



Most people with one DUI, much less two DUIs as she has, would've had the alcohol classes, a trip to the morgue, no drinking clause and not even allowed to BE in alcohol establishments, i.e., bars and clubs - where the alcohol is the main thing served. Restaurants are excluded. As a minimum. Usually on your second DUI it gets much harsher, more classes, possible forced rehab, etc.



She had a cake walk of a probation. She could've taken care of this by early 2010 and been free to drink and drug, lie and fall down all the time and no one would care.



Lindsay has been treated MUCH less harshly than regular people. Anyone who says differently is an idiot.

Spot Said: "105. There is not one shred of evidence or proof that she is abusing perscription or illegal drugs and there is absolutely no evidence or proof that she is abusing alcohol. Until there is; anyone who says this is a liar! I think that the judge should have evidence or proof before she imposes restrictions."



She was convicted of a DUI. She also had cocaine in her possession when arrested for that DUI. That's why she's on probation. She then failed to adhere to the terms of her probation and skipped a court hearing. The judge has all the evidence she needs.

she needs to STOP ALL THIS BULL****! take a second, look around you, everything is falling apart. obviously her life is spinning out of controla nd everyone around her especially her mother are MONEY HUNGRY ENABLERS! she needs to be held accountable and quit looking for the easy way out. her actions have triggered the just to deem her a potenetial risk. she has avoided classes and following through on her probabtion, she needs to take this whole thing seriously, quit wasting her own time, the courts time, her hundreds of thousands on lawyer fees and suck it up and pay her debts so she can move on qith her life and finally get a fresh start. that should include giving up the drinking and excessive partying and taking her career a lot more seriously. PEOPLE would kill to be in her shoes and be given the same oppurtunities instead she looks like a total waste case crying out for attention,get yourself together LINDSAY! ARENT U TIRED OFLOOKING LIKE A TRAIN WRECK AND HAVING PPL JUDGE YOU?

The LiLo apologists posting their outrage at her unfair treatment are tagging THEMSELVES as hopeless addicts and/or enablers in total denial about the dangers of addiction and especially of driving under the influence...wait until a drunk driver has ravaged YOUR family, then try to find a way to defend LiLo.

A lawyer lies every time he looks at a jury and say "Ladies and gentleman of the jury, my client is innocent!"
