When you hire Lindsay Lohan to make a cameo in your movie in which you poke fun at her, one of the challenges is getting her to show up. For anything. Even the filming itself. According to Page Six, Lindsay Lohan “freaked out” after reading the script for Scary Movie 5. She thought the movie went in too hard at her. To try and get out of the cameo, she claimed she had walking pneumonia. Only after she was threatened with a lawsuit did she board finally board the private jet they sent for her.
“Lindsay missed every meeting she had for the film, including script reads and wardrobe meetings,” said a Hollywood insider. “Then she missed her flight to Atlanta on Sunday to shoot the movie. The producers had been getting signs Friday that she was a mess, and would not be fit to work.”
Multiple sources say that Lohan decided she didn’t want to do the film because she thought her scene made too much fun of her. “It went pretty hard at Lindsay,” said a source, adding the script features a kiss with Sheen, and that “she’d been freaking out about it for weeks.”
Yet another source tells us that Lohan last weekend began saying she couldn’t do the film because she had “walking pneumonia,” and went to a hospital Sunday to get her lungs checked.
“She is under contract — so to get out of it, she had to prove that she was sick,” said a source. “She tried to prove she has walking pneumonia.”
There may be something to that walking pneumonia. According to PubMed Health, walking pneumonia can be caused by chlamydia-related bacteria. Chlamydia. Lindsay Lohan. *Waits for light bulb moment* I’ll give her this, at least her excuse was somewhat believable.
