Producer of New Lindsay Lohan Film: "We Were Reluctant To Work With Her"

It's no secret that, by putting Lindsay Lohan in your movies, that you're taking some risks. Would she show up late everyday and piss off the rest of cast? Would she downward spiral into another alleged cocaine-filled car crash? Would she have to bow out for another stint in rehab? All possibilities if you look at the actress' past, but it seems the producers of LiLo's new flick, Labor Pains, took the risk and it's paying off.

"We were a little bit reluctant to work with her," producer Lati Grobman told "But she's been amazing."

Lindsay's bosses say she's been nothing but professional, showing up early and well-prepared for some 12-hour day shoots. In the new comedy, Lindsay plays a woman who tries to avoid getting fired by pretending to be pregnant.

"She's so natural at what she does. I've never seen one take where she's off," says Linds' boss. "The difference between her and the other girls that are naughty in the business is that she's actually talented. It's not [like] Paris Hilton and the rest of them. We took the chance. It's good that we did. So far, so good."

The biggest problem the flimmakers are encountering are the hoards of paps that are out for a shot of Lindsfilmmakers. "Paparazzi are ruining my life," says the producer. "This is the most insane thing I've ever seen in my life. They do things that are very, very aggressive. I'm not a producer anymore, I'm a police woman."

Is Lindsay on the road to becoming normal again? Or is that never even a real possibility?
