I would have been better in Black Swan: Lindsay Lohan
Lindsay Lohan told a writer that she should have played the lead role in Black Swan because she had years of ballet training. The I know Who Killed Me actor pulls diva stunts and shoots for small time music video to get over the snub.entertainment Updated: Jul 15, 2011 18:24 IST
Lindasy Lohan expressed her displeasure that she was not approached for the role of Nina Sayers in Black Swan as she has been training in ballet for many years. The Mean Girls actor revealed all this and more in a interview with Jacqueline Powers for Plum magazine.
Powers reports that Lohan said that she did "ballet until she was 19 and was indignant that she was not considered for the movie Black Swan." Natalie Portman, who played Nina Sayers in 2010 movie, earned the Best Actress Oscar for her performance. While the 25-year-old Lohan recently spent 35 days confined to her Californian home in lieu of jail time for taking a necklace from a boutique and violating the terms of her 2007 conviction for driving under the influence of liquor. She hasn't appeared on screen for over a year.
In a possible attempt to revive her dead career, she was spotted at a LA nightclub shooting for a video for a little-known rock band from Florida, MIGG. Dressed in a leopard print dress and swathed in make up, Lohan shot late night scenes at the nightclub for the Let The Games Begin video.
That would probably have been easy considering the I Know Who Killed Me actor is known more for her wayward partying than her acting prowess.
Plum Miami magazine's story further claims that Lohan never got off acting like a total diva.
"As we pulled up to the Fontainebleau, a bright-orange parking cone was blocking the entrance. Not accustomed to waiting, apparently, she lowered the car's window and shouted, 'Move that cone. I'm Lindsay Lohan,'" the article says, "And it was done."
The hotel room booked for her by the magazine looked like a war zone after Lohan was done with it. "Monday morning was supposed to be
check-out time, but Lindsay and her posse refused to leave," Powers says in the article, "It was like watching the lights come on at a nightclub afterhours—not pretty."
