Over the weekend, paramedics rushed to Lindsay Lohan's hotel room after staff determined she was unresponsive and feared the worst. The actress still had the energy to joke about it on Twitter, after the whole thing was over.
Lindsay is now shooting for the Lifetime biopic “Liz & Dick,” in which she plays the iconic Elizabeth Taylor.
She'd been working for several days on end and went up to her room to get some shut-eye and she simply collapsed.
A member of the crew went to wake her and, when they couldn't, they called someone from the hotel. They summoned the paramedics when Lohan still wouldn't respond from within.
Given Lindsay's history and the way everything she does makes headlines and causes a stir, her rep immediately issued a statement to set the record straight.
Lohan did the same on Twitter, only on a lighter note.
“Note to self.. After working 85hours in 4days, and being up all night shooting, be very aware that you might pass out from exhaustion & 7 paramedics MIGHT show up @ your door.... Hopefully theyre cute. Otherwise it would be a real let down. XL @mrsalperez -back on set,” the star wrote on her page.
This is the same thing that her publicist, Steve Honig told the press when he realized rumors might spin out of control.
“She was on set last night at 7 p.m. and worked through the night until 8 a.m. this morning. She took a nap before shooting her final scene. Producers were concerned when she did not come out of her room and called paramedics as a precaution,” Honig said, as we also reported
at the time.
“Lindsay was examined and is fine, but did suffer some exhaustion and dehydration. She is resting now and is hoping to be back on set later this afternoon,” her publicist added.
Indeed, Lindsay was photographed back on the set of the biopic within hours of the health scare, looking as good as ever.
