Here are some photos of Lindsay Lohan out and about in London two weekend ago, plus some other photos I just never got around to posting, including some pics of Lindsay at a makeup event last week (those pics are at the end of the post). To her credit, Lindsay hasn’t been getting pap’d very often in the past month. I have a theory about that! I think she was partying pretty hard in rehearsals for Speed-the-Plow and then she partied hard the first few weeks of the show. But she couldn’t deal with the schedule or the parties, so she actually made the choice to not party as much. Amazing, right? Well, what if this is a whole new Cracken? Radar’s sources say that Lindsay has been doing so well in London, she wants to come back to LA and relaunch her film career. Er… good luck with that.
Is Lindsay finally ready to make a career comeback? The actress will soon be returning to the U.S. when her London play Speed-the-Plow closes on Nov. 29 — and she’s thinking about her next steps in life.
“Lindsay is doing better than she has in years!” a close friend of the once-troubled star tells RadarOnline.com exclusively. “Lindsay is determined to be a movie star again.”
“Lindsay plans to return home to her family in New York for a bit and is then heading to L.A. because she has three big movies that she is getting ready to star in,” the source reveals.
According to IMDB, Lohan is playing the lead in three several projects listed as in ‘pre-production.’ In the upcoming films Soul Carriers and Life Travelers, Lohan will star opposite James Duvall, 42, and in Six Gun Dead, she will play opposite Eric Roberts, 58.
“She almost has a clean slate after all of her legal issues,” the source notes, referring to her probation in the necklace theft case, which an L.A. Superior Court judge ended on Nov. 6. Following the court’s decision, Lohan’s attorney Shawn Holley said, “The judge was pleased, the prosecutors were pleased and of course I’m pleased that Lindsay’s doing well on probation, with her career, and generally with her life.”
As Radar previously reported, those close to the 28-year-old Mean Girls star insist that “the old Lindsay is back” and that “she has allowed all of her old friends back into her life.”
“She is still sober and we are all very supportive,’ the friend tells Radar. “We always will be.”
Legally speaking, I think the state of California was just tired of dealing with her crack drama, so everybody turned a blind eye and let Lindsay complete her probation period without fulfilling all of the requirements. As for Lindsay returning to a career in films… at this point, she’s been a cracked-out mess longer than she was ever an A-list actress, and Lindsay pretty much thinks she’s going to be a huge movie star again every three to six months. She’s still talking about winning an Oscar someday, you know. But… if she is doing better (judge for yourself), then God bless. While I don’t think she’s in a good place or anything, I think she’s better right now than she was two or three years ago.
