Lydia Hearst Shaw: I’m No Lindsay Lohan
It looks at if poor Lindsay Lohan will always be surrounded by some sort of drama…
News recently surfaced that 26-year-old daughter of once-kidnapped Patty Hearst, Lydia Hearst Shaw, was attached to star in an upcoming controversial Lindsay Lohan fictionalized biopic; but now that Team Lohan has lawyered up and planned to shut down production [which reportedly has just begun], the model turned actress is denying ever being a part of such type film!
“Just so we are all clear…My hair is red because I am the new face of Schwarzkopf color. I am a model. I dyed my hair to front the campaign,” Hearst tweeted this past Tuesday, denying she dyed her locks to look like Lohan in the upcoming film Dogs in Pocketbooks.
The movie’s mastermind, Charles Casillo, had claimed that he chose Shaw after looking at a lot of actresses for the role. “She’s one of the few supermodels who can actually act,” he said.
In response the very vocal father of Lindsay herself, Michael Lohan, stepped in with a few threatening words: “I smell more attorney fees brewing…”, which prompted Casillo to do a 180 and play down the Lohan connection…
“It was never the story of Lindsay Lohan,” Casillo says. “It is a spoof of all the young actresses of today and their tabloid headline stories. I knew when she saw it she would see it has nothing to do with Lindsay or her family. It was never my intention to do a movie about Lindsay. I did no research. I didn’t talk to anyone who knew her. This is not a biopic of her.”
“I said it was a story of someone like a Lindsay Lohan or a Paris Hilton or even a Marilyn Monroe or Jean Harlow of their day,” Casillo went on to say. “This is just a spoof of the headlines.”
Casillo declined to comment on whether Shaw was even still attached to the movie, but Shaw took to the Twitter to make sure she wouldn’t be lumped in on any legal action, making it clear her schedule was Dogs-free: “As for any theatrical roles I am currently filming Two Jacks directed by Bernard Rose. My Next Project is Catwalk by Tony Hickox…thank you all for your messages of encouragement during mytransition into acting. I truly love and appreciate it,” she wrote. “At this time I am not officially signed onto any other projects.”
According to Casillo, production on Dogs in Pocketbooks is still going strong.
