Lindsay Lohan Actually Defends Harvey Weinstein… and Criticizes His Wife!
The accusations against Harvey Weinstein are serious; claims of sexual harassment and rape are making headlines; actresses like Gwyneth Paltrow and Angelina Jolie are releasing statements; actors such as Ben Affleck and Matt Damon are vehemently denying the knowledge of any wrongdoing on the producer’s part… Hollywood is in shambles.
Nevertheless, 99.5% of the population, including Jennifer Lawrence, who appeared in multiple productions under the powerhouse The Weinstein Company, is disturbed and disgusted by the 65-year-old media mogul’s alleged (because we have to say ‘alleged’) actions. The remaining .5% includes fashion designer Donna Karan, who suggested that the reported victims may’ve been “asking for it” — though, she has since changed her tune and said her remarks were taken out of context — and… Lindsay Lohan.
The 31-year-old actress, best known for her roles in The Parent Trap and Mean Girls, took to her Instagram Story (in an… Irish accent?) to not only support Harvey Weinstein, but to also criticize his wife, Georgina Chapman for leaving him.
“Hi! I’m in Dubai,” Lindsay began. “I’m home and I feel very bad for Harvey Weinstein right now. I don’t think it’s right what’s going on. I think Georgina needs to take a stand and be there for her husband.”
“He’s never harmed me or did anything to me,” she added, “we’ve done several movies together. I think everyone needs to stop — I think it’s wrong. So stand up.”
The pair worked on two movies together: one was 2006’s Bobby, about the assassination of Robert F. Kennedy; the other was 2013’s Scary Movie 5, in which she played herself.
The actress has since deleted the videos from her social-media account, but the evidence is still out there because, you know… it’s the Internet:

Serious fail on Lindsay’s part. But, then again, she should be used to it:
Regina George, Mean Girls
Originally, LiLo was slated to play wicked witch Regina George in Mean Girls. She loved the part and was all ready to go...and then Rachel McAdams came along.
The 38-year-old was first cast as Cady Heron, but the directors changed their minds — not only did Lindsay look too young to play the mean queen, but she also got nervous around the older actress on set! The dynamic was perfect for them to switch roles, although the redhead was reluctant to do so at first. In the end, we were super glad about this decision — we wouldn't switch them back for the world.
