Lindsay Lohan hits back at critics after “car crash” opening night

Lindsay Lohan made her West End debut this week with award winning playwright David Mamet's Speed the Plow and it was by all accounts a bit of a catastrophe.

The audience reported her forgetting her lines, relying on an off-stage prompter and pages of script hidden in props.

One reviewer even wrote that “the audience was openly laughing at Lohan's struggle to grasp Mamet's sharp, trademark dialogue”.


Now Lindsay has hit back saying it wasn't a disaster, because she managed to turn up.

Raise your standards LiLo.

"It could've been a disaster – but it wasn't by far. I could've not turned up, But of course I did, it's my show,” the 26-year-old actress said.

"Everyone is always going to be judgemental, no matter what."

Does she really think she deserves a pat on the back for showing up to work for once?

She continued: "I respect people have an opinion, but I'm doing the best I can and will for the duration. I'm doing this because working makes me feel happy and this is a new venture for me."

Luckily for Lindsay, the second night of the play seems to have gone better. Audience members tweeted that she knew all her lines and gave a “great” performance.

Maybe we should put the previous performance down to opening night jitters!
