Those who know Lohan also say that any threat to her career will prompt her to take serious action. "She cares about her craft and about her career," says a source. "She wants to be a Jodie Foster, so when she does things that are affecting her progress, that makes her upset." Although the shooting schedule for her next film Poor Things (with Shirley MacLaine) may now be in doubt, those closest to her simply hope she focuses on her own well-being. "She's been working her whole life," says a pal, "and I think we have to give her a big break and get her some real help this time."
