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."

You know, for once I'm inclined to believe Lindsay. The producers of the movie have been so willing to delay production for the last several months, it doesn't seem reasonable that they would all of a sudden decide to drop Lindsay. That's especially true since there's been so much publicity already about LiLo playing the role. And let's face it - pretty much the ONLY reason anyone was interested in this movie about a porn star was because Lindsay was starring in it. It would be nice to think that she's finally got her priorities straight.

How on earth does missing a meeting mean you quit something? You don't quit something until you say to the person in charge "I quit". Missing a meeting is only being rude. It's not quitting.

So you're believing "sources" that she quit, even though words coming directly from the director said they fired her? And, if you believe any of the Lindsay supporters, whenever it says "sources" that means Michael Lohan, and we're not supposed to believe anything he says. You guys want it both ways all of a sudden???

This is the downside of recovery. She did not feel the part of Linda Lovelace anymore. She would have been a excellent for that part.

Both TMZ and RadarOnline have reported that she dropped out. It would be damaging to her recovery to continue to portray these types of characters. She does it because she can identify with them, but she needs to break that cycle. It started with Georgia Rule and hasn't stopped since. Lindsay has cornered the market on playing the social outcast, but she isn't going to do it anymore. Like I said, she wasn't fired. She quit. She wanted script revisions, and it ain't exactly hard to figure out why, if you've seen the script, but Wilder wasn't going back off the whole soft-core skin-a-max angle, not surprisingly, so she dropped out.

The movie was a bad choice for her. But, I don't believe that she quit. I believe she got fired.
