Lindsay Lohan made the celebrity news corner of the Internet stand still on Friday when it was reported that she was rushed to the hospital after being found unconscious in her hotel room. Turns out she was just sleeping.
The 25-year-old actress was reportedly just exhausted from an all-nighter on the set of Lifetime’s Liz Dick, a biopic starring LiLo as Elizabeth Taylor. TMZ originally reported her as being hospitalized, though Lohan never actually made it that far. Paramedics arrived at her room and TMZ cleared up their story later. They even went out to the set of Liz Dick to scare the bejeezus out of LiLo and snap a pretty lol-worthy picture of her to confirm that she’s alive and well. “On to the next drama,” they say.
“Note to self.. After working 85hours in 4days, and being up all night shooting, be very aware that you might pass out from exhaustion 7 paramedics MIGHT show up @ your door…. Hopefully theyre cute. Otherwise it would be a real let down.”
Exhaustion would follow, as reports over the past year seem to indicate that LiLo is done being a screw-up, got clean, and is working her patootie off to get her career back. She ain’t out of the woods yet, but she’s on her way.
“Lindsay has been working a grueling schedule for the last couple of days,” Lohan’s rep Steve Honig told E!. “Last 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 the fire department and paramedics found her sleeping but determined that she was fine, just extremely exhausted and slightly dehydrated.”
She’s back to work now, making the whole incident pretty moot.
