Lindsay Lohan turns down Dancing With The StarsNow here is a piece of news that will either have you yelling ‘what the hell’ or respecting Lindsay Lohan’s creative integrity. Turns out, she was offered more than half a million dollars to be a part of the popular dance reality show ‘Dancing With The Stars’, but she turned down the offer as she is only interested in doing films and not reality television. ‘What the hell’ is she thinking turning down that kind of money when she owes thousands of dollars in back taxes many would ask? But, the fact that she has decided not to sell out in the face of adversity is admirable.

The only problem is that she probably is being a bit too foolhardy, as her being offered a film any time soon seems like a bleak possibility, given her legal hassles and her erratic lifestyle. After all, which director would want to cast an actor who would come with her own huge baggage of problems?

In fact, Lindsay could end up delaying a whole film with her shenanigans, if given an important role in a film, like she did Lindsay Lohan Dancing With The Starswith ‘The Canyons’. For the film Leslie Coutterand was on call throughout the entire shoot, so she could at moment’s notice replace Lindsay if required. This was needed to be done because of Lohan’s repeated absences, tardiness, and feuds with director Paul Schrader. Just like in a play, Leslie Coutterand was Lohan’s understudy in the film and paid for the sole purpose of being a back up for Lohan, just in case Lohan took off or something and didn’t return. Those of you, who weren’t aware of all these facts, are surely yelling ‘what the hell’ now.

You are probably yelling ‘what the hell’ because even you can probably see that Lindsay has really slim chances of getting a film after her behavior on the sets of ‘The Canyons’, and therefore shouldn’t have turned down an opportunity to make big money by being on DWTS. Many would also argue that there is nothing wrong with reality TV, as its one of most popular forms of entertainment in today’s age. Who knows, if Lohan plays her cards right she could end up having a reality show of her own like the Kardashians. After all, the Lohans can be more interesting and controversial than the Kardashians, without even trying.
