Lindsay Lohan -- I Wasn't Fired, I Quit!

11/20/2010 5:35 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Lindsay Lohan made the choice to leave her latest film project, not the other way around ... sources close to LiLo tell TMZ.

It's been reported today that Lindsay was fired from the planned Linda Lovelace biopic "Inferno." But sources who have spoken to Lindsay within the last hour tell us Lindsay decided to drop out from the film so that she could focus more on her recovery.

We're told Lindsay felt the project no longer felt right -- but that she and the director, Matthew Wilder, remain on good terms and hope to work together in the future.

UPDATE: A rep for Lindsay adds that Lindsay is "concentrating on her recovery" and calls the decision to leave the film "mutual."

Quit, fired, whatever, this isn't a role for a recovering addict. Is it just me, or does she actually seem serious this time? Maybe she won't join the 27 club after all.

I like a trainwreck as much as the next person (well, you just can't look away!), but I like a comeback even better.

Get a decent role, girl. This movie would blow anyway (ba dum chh).

How is she still relevant? A train wreck is news, not a spoiled brat of an actress. I'm sure no one cares about this girls career or for her acting...whether she gets it together or not. She should just go do porn at this point.

BWA HA HA!!!! What a JOKE! Please, she's showing her (fake) tits on Maxim, (and everywhere else she can), I don't believe FOR A SECOND that she would quit to focus on her 'recovery', which I don't actually believe she's in.

it's pretty close to noone caring anymore.
Look at the responses on her stories these days.
There are about 5 people in this world still talking about Lindsay --and Dina and I account for, at least, two of them. And of course, it is easy to see that there is a prolific PRO LINDSAY writer, that I would bet is Dina, but cannot prove and have no need to, but DINA, you need to understand people who are SMART understand that people don't do things without MOTIVATION, OK? WHo else on this planet would write the things that Nicole, Delmar, Dumas, Rick..whatever it was.---write, constantly. It is like everytime you write, your PHOTO shows up (at least in my mind) regardless of the phoney names you use.
I remember when this whole thing began there were real fans, I haven't seen anything by "TEAM LINDSAY" in a long time. And I am sure you don't write 100% of the kind letters regarding Lindsay, there are sweethearts out there who see she is a little girl, still, who needs guidance,...but Nicole and Delmar and other alias, are always writing about Lindsay DEFENSIVELY....I suppose you are not bright enough to have followed me so far, but, I know there are some smart people on here who can....damn Dina, I wish you would listen to SOMEONE, other than the voice of GREED that constantly screams in your head.
lindsay is not welcome in Hollywood. There is no Public Future, until she has been clean for a long, long, long time and MOSTLY her Princess Attitude is GONE. Lets see her work with the homeless, the battered. Something other than shop and drop.

There is little she can do anymore that anyone is interested in. There will be no legit job offers so I am waiting for Black Friday when TMZ reports and shows a photo of Lindsay passing the pototes at Micheals Thanksgiving Dinner. That is about all that is left to report on LIndsay. This story has, what 50 something repsonses, many by the same people, and look at Mels storys, over a thousand? Not that mels great, by any means, but Mel was a real movie star, and unlike Lindsay, Mel doesNOT NEED to work anymore.
I think I am going to go back to waiting for Google Headlines to alert me to her next crisis. This playing on these boards is an interesting diversion to my real world, but watching Lindsay rot, is just too sad for me at times.
Almost makes me want to drink.
Yeah, son of a bit&t, it sure does.

oops, sorry, the thing about the 50 posters was in regards to the Thanksgiving story. I see there are 246 post on this story, but am aware that many, if not most, posters are the same people.
Best of Luck to you both, I mean it.
And as Thanksgiving comes around, I would like to share a secret I learned in my own recovery.
GRATITUDE WORKS.
The more you focus on what you ALREADY HAVE, how BLESSED YOU ALREADY ARE, the more comes to you. Lindsay's arrogance and sence of entitlement has been a problem for people in this industry for YEARS.....YEARS DINA. Lindsay's problems are not NEW, they have just reached a league that we all have GOOD CAUSE to slam the door in her face and say "ENOUGH". ANd that's where you have arrived. YES, Dina and Lindsay, YOU HAVE ARRIVED. It isn't quite what you were expecting, I know.

"Wilder and his producers ran out of patience with Lohan when she didn't meet with them while she was at her West Hollywood apartment on a day pass from the Betty Ford Center last weekend, several sources tell RadarOnline.com."

This is one of the few times I believe RadarOnline, because the producers made it clear with statements that had released beforehand that they wanted to arrange a meeting with Lindsay. I thought that was why she had gone to L.A. in the first place.

This is essentially proof that they fired her only after she had quit. By refusing that meeting, she quit without ever saying she had quit. But her actions had made it clear that she had pulled out.

Dina,
You have an excuse/explanation for everything. It's never Lindsay's fault, it's always something that has been done to her. If she had indeed quit, she would have said, "I quit" and put it in writing. Refusing a meeting is not quitting something. Oh how the world must seem to you...

look whatever lindsay does in her life has nothing to do with anyone trouble today so much jealousy and lies are being spreaded around about that poor girl if you really and i mean really knew her you would see that she was a really nice girl i have seen the tears the heartache the loneliness of someone who wanted to be hugged and cared about where was the lohan clan then there ain't nothing you can tell me about them i have seen right through all of them the only one i like and care about is linds all she wants is a bit of respect in her life and to be loved not pushed aside like an old piece of junk leave her alone

she does not want to be pittied all she wants is a chance to get on with her life how do you think she feels when so many people hate her we all make mistakes in our lives so what let bygones be bygones all i she wants is to live her life and be happy surely that is not alot to ask for i will always defend her and support her no matter what

Bio pics (especially those featuring nudity) are huge Oscar bate. So basically Lohan says she "quit" a film that may have revived her carreer AND grabbed the attention of the Academy?

Why in the hell is she allowed to make decisions on her own? It's obvious she doesn't have the ability to do it without screwing herself up.

Besides, I was hoping to see her stark naked on screen.

SHE'S A LIAR. I saw a video clip of her being interviewed about her role in that movie (prior to her getting the boot) and she was so excited about playing Linda Lovelace...So save the lies LieHO...

OH, btw...You know how you can tell LieHO's lying:

Her lips are moving!!!!
