Accident-prone actress Lindsay Lohan returned to the set of her Lifetime movie “Liz and Dick” yesterday with “bumps and bruises” after totaling her $80,000 Porsche last Friday.
According to Web site Celebuzz, Lohan showed up on set Tuesday with “bumps and bruises from her car accident… clearly visible on her knees.”
Accompanying photos of Lohan show her wearing a fur coat and yellow above-the-knee dress that reveals her legs in her role as Elizabeth Taylor. A close-up shows what appears to be discoloration, bruising and swelling on one of her knees.
The “Herbie: Fully Loaded” star told cops after the Friday accident that an 18-wheeler cut her off on Pacific Coast Highway, causing the rear-end crash that sent her and an assistant briefly to the hospital. But TMZ subsequently reported that Lohan then changed her tune by telling police she’d replaced the brakes on her flashy, leased sports car two days prior to the crash, and that the brakes failed when she tried to stop suddenly.
The Santa Monica Police Department is reportedly investigating the incident, and the findings could put Lohan in violation of probation for a 2007 drunken-driving conviction. The 25-year-old actress has been jailed before for various probation violations.
Making the matter even messier for Lohan, the the truck driver involved in the crash alleges that one of her staffers tried to offer him payment in exchange for not calling the cops, according to reports. And he’s lawyered up and says he was injured.
Despite Lohan’s latest run-in with the law, she’s already been cast in her next film: Writer Bret Easton Ellis tweeted this week that LiLo will star in his movie “The Canyons,” opposite a porn star named James Deen.
Way to keep it classy, Linds!
