Lindsay Lohan has an explanation for why she was a no-show at the Venice Film Festival on Friday – she never said she was going to be there in the first place.
There was speculation that the rehabbed star had flaked out on walking the red carpet in Italy to promote her latest film, The Canyons, after her director, Paul Schrader, told reporters that he'd been "held hostage" for the past 16 months by his lead actress.
Describing Lohan as "very talented but unpredictable," he added, "She was supposed to be here today. She said she would be, but she is not."

Lindsay Lohan wasn't at the Los Angeles premiere of her racy film The Canyons on Tuesday night, but cast members had plenty to say about the star and her recovery.
"She's decided not to be here because she's worried coming out of rehab [and] hanging out in L.A. for the weekend," the film's director Paul Schrader told the audience in a speech before the movie was shown.
Explaining Lohan's history with alcohol, Schrader told reporters, "She has been on this Adderall for about five years. It makes her speedy so she has to cut that with vodka. Now you're dealing with a speedball."

It's true: Lindsay Lohan ain't what she used to be. But then, suggests The Canyons, neither is the movie business.
With a lead actress now more famous for her rehab stints than her film roles, a lead actor (James Deen) who made his bones in pornography, and a stylish opening montage of decaying movie houses, The Canyons seems ready to make a damning meta-statement about the moral rot in Hollywood.
But the film, from writer Bret Easton Ellis and director Paul Schrader, succeeds only in becoming the object of its own condemnation. It's just another limp, soft-core porn thriller lacking the courage of its convictions.

And she's out.
Three months after entering rehab as part of a plea agreement in a criminal case, Lindsay Lohan left a Malibu treatment center Tuesday.
TMZ posted a photo of the actress leaving Cliffside Malibu.
Lohan, 27, checked into the Betty Ford Center in Rancho Mirage, Calif., on May 2, a stay ordered by a court after she allegedly lied to police at the scene of a car accident last June, violating her earlier probation.

Lindsay Lohan is just so over it.
Or at least her character, Tara, is in this sultry, moody trailer for The Canyons, the upcoming erotic thriller in which Lohan, 27, stars with the porn actor James Deen.
"When's the last time you went to see a movie in the theater?" Tara says of movies at the trailer's outset. "I don't know. You know, I guess maybe it's just not my thing anymore."
The trailer features several shots of Lohan disrobing, but only hints at the movie's plot. (It involves Tara hiding an affair from her boyfriend, which eventually leads to "an act of bloody violence.")

Chloë Moretz, Jaden Smith and Patrick Schwarzenegger were feted as the biggest and brightest stars of young Hollywood on Tuesday night.
The stars of Glee, Pitch Perfect, Big Time Rush, and more partied poolside at the Roosevelt Hotel in Hollywood for the release of Nylon's young Hollywood issue.
The evening began with an intimate dinner at the Public Kitchen inside the historic hotel where cover girl Moretz arrived with a gaggle of friends ready to celebrate. She and her pals filled up on appetizers of meatballs, burrata cheese and kale but only nibbled on their entrees, choosing to spend time standing and chatting instead.
