Lindsay Lohan, who granted does need a reputation makeover, is shooting for art star status, having teamed up with painter Richard Phillips on a film that's set to officially debut at the Venice Biennale. Um, she looks pretty, and pulls off the Brigitte Bardot references rather well, but it also looks like a perfume ad. Or, a Lindsay Lohan ad. Says Phillips, who is approaching his film project(s) as a mode of portraiture, "What fascinates me about Lindsay are not her problems but the way she embodies an eminence on the level of a Bardot or an Ullmann. "She’s a combination of the fantastic and the real, which is what makes her so magnetic. She can also bring forward an existential presence that speaks to the isolated self." Ya think?
