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."

Seriously this is the best thing for her. Lindsay needs to find better roles to start a comeback than being a porn star. Besides, who the hell would want to see that movie anyway? Nobody cares about the Linda Lovelace story other porn stars and Linda herself.

Why does anyone even care about Lindsay Lohan?

There are a ton of other way better actresses out there,than she'd ever even come close to being.It's a fact.

Nobody wants,or cares to see her in movies,let alone even cares...:)

Soon as she's off probation,or out of the courts hands..she's gonna be drinking,and at the clubs again till 3 in the morning.

Not that I give a rats ass,cause I don't.What she does is her business,and what I spend at a theatre is mine,and I assure you that myself,and 95% of the population aint gonna spend a dime either to watch a screw up in real life,screw up a movie they pay to see.

There is no hate in that.

All Lindsay is,is a live reality screw up.That's what she'll be remembered as.

As far as the ones who post here supporting Linday,good for you.But remember not everyone here is stupid,and falls for that PR crap her family pushes on this site.

It's a fact that someone in the Lohan team spends a great deal of time here at TMZ pretending to be fans,when in fact they are not.They are doing PR work,and nothing more.

@Nikki
Who cares ? What they leak
All of it would have been before rehab which she is completing on Jan 3rd and then will complete probation on February 25th.

Lindsay was fired/let go.In other words FIRED!!

"We are withdrawing our offer from Lindsay Lohan" director Matthew Wilder was quoted as saying.


"We have stuck by Lindsay very patiently for a long time with a lot of love and support," Wilder said. "Ultimately, the impossibility of insuring her -- and some other issues -- have made it impossible for us to go forward."

He said his production team was currently negotiating with another lead actress and would make an announcement soon.

Well there ya have it.Lindsay may claim she quit,but the reality is they let her go.

Sorry,but the truth hurts..:)

Quit or fired, who would hire her. Quit is worse, she can't be trusted to see a movie to it's conclusion. How expensive is that for a movie company.

They could also do a remake of the classic movie "Bombshell" staring Lindsay as the role of Lola. Its about a tabloid sensation by the name of Lola Burns, where in the movie Lola is tired of being in the medias spotlight and retreats to the desert(Palm Springs) and meets this rich dude who dosent even know who Lola is. Im telling you this would work!!!
