Lindsay Lohan's mother, Dina Lohan, says "there is only so much a child can take" in response to a studio executive's charge that the 19-year-old star was "irresponsible and unprofessional" when she didn't show up for work on her movie Georgia Rule.
In a letter delivered to Lindsay on Thursday, James G. Robinson, CEO of Morgan Creek Productions, scolded her for calling in sick on Wednesday to the set. "We are well aware that your ongoing all-night heavy partying is the real reason for your so-called 'exhaustion,' " he wrote.
"My daughter is a wonderful child," Dina Lohan said, saying of the attention paid to what has transpired between Lindsay and Robinson: "This is too much."
As it is, Lindsay who was briefly hospitalized early Wednesday morning for being "overheated and dehydrated," according to her rep has returned to work and made Robinson happy, he tells trade publication the Hollywood Reporter. Yet as the dust was still settling, Dina Lohan fumed about Robinson in an interview set to air Monday on TV's Access Hollywood saying the exec was "way out of line" for scolding her daughter.
Speaking about her remarks to Access, Dina Lohan says, "It's so ridiculous, that I'm over it. Basically, I have no comment about the letter." Describing the circumstances that she said led up to the incident, "On the set it was 105 degrees," she said. "And she has bronchial asthma so any extreme heat or cold, she can't breathe." On top of which, says her mom, Lindsay "was wearing winter clothes and she was telling people, 'I need water, I need water.' And they just want to get the shot, want to get the shot." The elder Lohan said Lindsay was physically affected "after she had left (the set) and went home."
Speaking to Access, Dina said, "I'm a mother and will do what I need to do to protect my child. She's a human being. There was one day when she was late, and they (director Garry Marshall and costar Jane Fonda) worked the schedule around her. Garry, Jane, everybody loves her." And now, apparently, so does Robinson. "I've never had a minute's trouble with her. She's every inch a lady," the film executive told the Hollywood Reporter on Friday. "I felt I needed to remind her of her obligations to show up."
Going Robinson one better, Dina Lohan told Access of her daughter's work in Georgia Rule: "She will win an Academy Award for this picture. ... Justice!"
