Lindsay Lohan Lands Role in Upcoming Lady Gaga Video [PHOTOS]
Things finally seem to be taking a turn for the better for Lindsay Lohan -- the troubled 26-year-old actress and singer is set to star in Lady Gaga's newest music video for a single off her upcoming album "ArtPop", the New York Post reported on Wednesday.
Lohan and Gaga's newfound friendship has gotten a lot of attention recently, especially after Gaga posted pictures of the two at a "sleepover" at the Chateau Marmont to her new social networking site, Little Monsters. The first photo shows Lohan, Gaga, and photographer Ellen von Unwerth huddling together mischievously, while another two display Lohan looking regal while smoking a cigarette in a tiara and white fur coat. Gaga added a caption alongside the photos saying, "I love to stay up late and take pictures of beautiful celebrities."
"Lady Gaga and Lindsay caused a stir last month when they had their 'sleepover' at the Chateau (Marmont hotel)," said a source for the Post. "And now it turns out that Lindsay will be starring in Gaga's new video from her upcoming album ... Due to Gaga's superstar status, this would be Lindsay's biggest (role) by far in many, many years."
Even before news broke of a Gaga-Lohan collaboration, the actress had been keeping much busier than usual. In just the past few months Lohan has wrapped up filming on two new movies: the Lifetime biopic of Elizabeth Taylor, "Liz & Dick," and the Bret Easton Ellis indie thriller "The Canyons," in which she acts alongside male porn star James Deen. Lohan also has an unannounced role in the upcoming flick "Scary Movie 5."
Lohan's busy filming schedule and upcoming collaboration with Gaga seems to mark a positive turn for the actress, who has made more headlines for her troubled personal life than she has for her career in recent years. But the recent upswing in her career hasn't come without its share of bumps.
In June, during filming for "Liz & Dick", the actress totaled her Porsche when she collided with a dump truck on the Pacific Coast Highway in Santa Monica. Lohan was not injured in the accident, but just a week later paramedics were called to her Marina del Rey hotel room when she was found unresponsive, allegedly due to a combination of dehydration and exhaustion.
Thankfully, new photos seem to indicate that Lohan has been resting up and recuperating.
