The latest head-scratching revelation from ex-con actress Lindsay Lohan: She feels that she should have been offered Natalie Portman's Oscar-winning role in the film Black Swan.
This tidbit comes via a new profile in Plum Miami Magazine, which was written after Lohan, 25, did a photo shoot -- but flaked on the interview. So instead of a standard Q&A, the writer Jacquelynn Powers decided to take revenge by writing about the diva-ish behavior she witnessed during Lindsay's stay in Miami.
And boy, does Powers have stories. Lohan, she writes, was "constantly looking for drama, whether it was picking a fight with her younger sister... or freaking out over a lost pair of Zanotti heels." She even got indignant when an orange cone blocked her way in a parking lot, shouting, "Move that cone! I'm Lindsay Lohan!"
The writer also says that Lohan and her entourage refused to leave the hotel at check-out time because they'd been up all night partying. And, amazingly, she says she watched Lindsay drink wine while discussing her sobriety!
To add insult to injury, after cancelling the interview, Lohan still allowed Plum to pick up the tab for airfare, five-star hotel, transportation and expenses for herself and her entire entourage.
But back to Black Swan. According to the article, Lohan "took ballet until she was 19 and was indignant that she was not considered for the movie Black Swan."
Let's take a moment to compare Lindsay Lohan to Natalie Portman, shall we? Yes, both have been film stars since they were 11 or 12. Both are very pretty. And both have hosted Saturday Night Live. Beyond that, the similarities pretty much end. While Lohan was going on all-night benders and getting fired from sets, Portman was working hard -- even going to Harvard! -- and building a film resume that an actress of any age would be proud to call her own.
Black Swan director Darren Aronofsky needed an actress who could commit to both a brutal training regime and a psychologically demanding role, not just one who could do swan arms. If Lohan doesn't understand why she wasn't considered for the part -- well, that's a big part of her problem.
