Actress Lindsay Lohan was found unconscious in her Marina del Rey, Calif., hotel room on Friday morning, according to E! Online. Paramedics were called to attend to the 25-year-old star, but Lohan's representatives told the entertainment news outlet that the situation was under control.
Lindsay has been working a grueling schedule for the last couple of days, public-relations rep Steve Honig told E! News. [Thursday] night she worked from 7 p.m. to 8 a.m. She was exhausted and went back to her room to sleep. Producers were apparently concerned and called for the fire department and paramedics found her sleeping, but determined she was fine, just extremely exhausted and slightly dehydrated.
Lohan was at the Ritz-Carlton in Marina del Rey, taking a break from filming Liz & Dick when paramedics found her.
Honig added neither alcohol nor drugs were involved in the incident. The Marina del Rey sheriff's department told E! News that paramedics were alerted when the production crew tried and failed to wake up the actress around 10:15 a.m. A source on the set told the publication that Lohan exited the set after finishing her scenes at 8 a.m.
A member of the production staff pounded on her door for several minutes with no reply, sparking concern for the young actress' health.
Lohan will also be working on a film adaptation of Bret Easton Ellis' The Canyons, and porn star James Deen said he is thrilled to be co-starring with the Mean Girls starlet. Deen told E! News that he is not concerned by what the media has to say about Lohan.
The only negative thing I've ever heard about her is in the press, Deen told the publication. Honestly, everyone I know who's actually worked with her has nothing but nice things to say.
On Tuesday, Ellis tweeted that Lohan and Deen will be working together. Although Deen has never met the former child star, he told E! News that he is looking forward to shooting the film with her.
Every day is going to be awesome, Deen said. Maybe a little bit of a challenge, but it's gonna be awesome.
Paul Schrader, the director of The Canyons, and Ellis both met with Deen to ensure he would be an ideal fit for the role, and to see if his acting skills can extend beyond the bedroom.
The director wanted to make sure I'm not some annoying, untalented, useless sack of whatever, Deen told E! News. He had me read and film for a character and was impressed with my acting abilities.
The film is currently in preproduction and will be released in 2013, according to the movie's page on the IMDB website.
