"I was so embarrassed, it never happened again": Lindsay Lohan Admits She Quit Showing Up Late to Movie Sets After 2 Time Oscar Winning Actress Confronted Her

Lindsay Lohan, who became popular in the early 2000s with films like Confessions of a Teenage Drama QueenFreaky Friday, and most famously, Mean Girls, disappeared from the public eye after a while following the toxic influence that her career had brought her. The child star who grew up to become a teen icon after her hit film, The Parent Trap (1998) became a controversial public celebrity in later yearsThe shift in her personality occurred after an extended stretch of the infamous night-long parties, which then filtered into her professional life and affected the lives of those around her.

However, after an earful, which came at a time when her on-set behavior began to affect the work of Hollywood icons like Jane Fonda, Lindsay Lohan managed to bring a balance to her professional and personal lives and as such, repair much of her fragile reputation.

Lindsay Lohan’s Volatile Time On the Sets of Georgia Rule 

During the filming of Garry Marshall’s Georgia Rule, Lindsay Lohan’s frequent absence from the set became a cause of irritation and expense on the production’s part. James G. Robinson (who was the producer of the film) sent out a public letter which was later published in several outlets causing much sensation at the time. Robinson, in his letter, claimed:

“You and your representatives have told us that your various late arrivals and absences from the set have been the result of illness; today we were told it was ‘heat exhaustion.’ We are well aware that your ongoing all night heavy partying is the real reason for your so-called ‘exhaustion’.”

By calling Lohan out on her actions, Robinson said that she “acted like a spoiled child” and not only did she “alienated many of your co-workers and endangered the quality of this picture” but her actions also “resulted in hundreds of thousands of dollars in damage.” However, James Robinson was not the only person who was frustrated with Lohan enough to send out such a strongly-worded letter. It was later revealed that the film’s veteran star, Jane Fonda too, confronted the young actress on the set of the 2007 film.

Jane Fonda Confronts Lindsay Lohan About Her Tardiness

Jane Fonda’s career in Hollywood is a marvelous roster, ranging from Sunday in New York to Barbarella. Most recently the actress has touched millions of hearts with her warm performance in the endearing comedy, Grace and Frankie. The ’60s icon is still an indomitable presence when around people and emanates sheer brilliance on set. As such, it was disappointing when Fonda was made to wait for her younger co-star to get on set on time to start the day’s scheduled shooting.

In an interview with Vogue, Lindsay Lohan claimed:

“I remember I was like three minutes late, and it was out that I was like three hours late. It was three minutes. And [Fonda] was waiting for me tapping her feet being like, ‘Lindsay, we’re all waiting’. I was so embarrassed, it never happened again… I just really admired her and I learned so much from her.”

Jane Fonda in turn adored Lohan and claimed the same on numerous occasions. Her love for the young star pushed her to seek Lohan out and tell her to stop overexerting herself. Eventually, at some point, the advice must have worked since Lohan removed herself from the imposing influence of the spotlight and is now happily married and lives a peaceful life in Dubai, unmarred by paparazzi and constant sensationalism.

She recently made a comeback to Hollywood with the Netflix Christmas film, Falling For Christmas.
