Rep: Lindsay Lohan Released From Hospital Following Car Accident

Lindsay Lohan has been released from the hospital following a car accident on Friday, the actress’ rep tells Access Hollywood.

“Lindsay was involved in an automobile accident today on her way to the [‘Liz & Dick’] set,” Lindsay’s rep said in a statement to Access on Friday. “She was brought to Santa Monica UCLA hospital as a precaution.

“She is fine and was released less than two hours later and is already headed back to the set to resume work,” the statement continued. “Fortunately, no one was seriously injured in the accident.”

According to TMZ, which was first to report the accident news, the 25-year-old actress was behind the wheel of her now-totaled black Porshe on Pacific Coast Highway in Los Angeles when the car collided with the back of an 18-wheel truck on Friday.

The Santa Monica Fire Department told Access that both Lindsay and her assistant sustained non-life-threatening injuries and were transported by SMFD ambulance to a local hospital.

The Secrets Behind Lindsay Lohan’s Elizabeth Taylor Transformation

When Lindsay Lohan first walked onto the set of Lifetime’s Liz & Dickdressed as screen legend Elizabeth Taylor, “there was an audible gasp,” the movie’s costume designer, Salvador Pérez, tells PEOPLE. “You’d swear it was Elizabeth.”

Dressed in Taylor’s favorite styles — jewel-toned cocktail dresses, fur coats and those famous gems (well, good fakes) — the actress looked remarkably like her screen idol. “She just walked into the clothes and became Elizabeth Taylor,” says Pérez.

Producer Larry Thompson had some of Taylor’s most famous bling, including the 33-carat Krupp diamond, recreated for the film. “Part of the magic is the wardrobe,” he says. “And Lindsay said she wants to bring magic to the movie.” Many of the vintage dresses fit her like a glove, too; Lohan’s waist measures a tiny 23 inches, while Taylor’s was a mere 22 inches.

Lohan will wear 66 different looks in the 80-minute biopic, which begins in 1961, ends with Richard Burton’s death in 1984 and focuses on their tumultuous relationship (an affair while she was still married, two weddings and two divorces). To prep, Lohan hired a voice coach and even dyed her auburn hair a deep brunette to better match Taylor’s dark tresses.

Lohan’s hair and makeup will span all of Taylor’s looks, from the long lashes and red lips of the 1950s (attained using M.A.C’s “Hot Tahiti” lipstick) and the Cleopatra-inspired eyeliner and nude mouth of the ’60s to her teased ’80s bouffant, always with her trademark eyeliner to accentuate her famous violet eyes. (Lohan is wearing opalescent lavender contacts for the role.)

“She brings in makeup for me,” makeup artist Eryn Krueger Mekash, who’s using mostly Chanel, Dior and M.A.C products, tells PEOPLE. Adds the movie’s hair stylist, Beatrice De Alba, “She looks so much like her. There was a moment when she saw her picture on the monitor and said ‘I’m her.’ It was thrilling.”

Lindsay Lohan’s New Wave

In “First Point,” his new short film, the artist Richard Phillips combines two of his current obsessions: surfing and Lindsay Lohan. Phillips has worked with the actress and tabloid goddess before, on a 90-second video for Neville Wakefield’s “Commercial Break,” which had a very brief run during the 54th Venice Biennale. And his studio is lined with several larger-than-life paintings of Lohan that came directly out of that particular project.

But don’t call Lohan his muse. Lohan, Phillips insists, is his collaborator as much as anyone in the stellar cast of people who worked on the film, including the legendary surf filmmaker Taylor Steele; the professional surfer Kassia Meador, who performs mesmerizingly as Lohan’s body double; the editor Jay Rabinowitz; and Thomas Bangalter, one half of the electro duo Daft Punk, who composed the ominously swelling score. As the trailer implies, “First Point” is at once a surf film and a film noir, an exploration of the California dream and the Hollywood nightmare, worlds that Lohan doesn’t have to pretend to straddle on screen.

But no doubt the question on everyone’s lips when “First Point” has its premiere next week at Art Unlimited, the curated section of the Art Basel fair, will be: “Is it art?” And that is just fine by Phillips. “It’s just like in my paintings,” he says. “Because of the actor and the popular culture dimensions of the project, it will give people — especially people in the art world — a real sense of instability with regard to my intentions. Is it a film? Is it an art video? It refuses to announce itself as either.”

Lindsay Lohan Begins Shooting Elizabeth Taylor Biopic Next Week—”She Is More Than Ready,” Says Executive Producer

Showtime!

E! News has learned exclusively that Lindsay Lohan has completed a week of rehearsals for her upcoming comeback role as Elizabeth Taylor in the Lifetime movie Liz & Dick, with shooting scheduled to begin on Monday in Los Angeles.

“She is more than ready,” says the movie’s executive producer, Larry Thompson. “All her clothes are made. All her jewelry is made. Come Monday morning, Liz and Dick will live again.”

He adds, “This is really happening. This isn’t like making an appearance on Glee or spending a week on SNL. She is number one on the call sheet. She is the star.”

Thompson also tells E! News that Lohan and costar Grant Bowler, who will portray Richard Burton, had their last rehearsal on Friday with director Lloyd Kramer, who has helmed several movie projects for Oprah Winfrey‘s Harpo Productions.

“He is rehearsing them now and Lindsay is channeling Taylor,” Thompson says with confidence. “She is excited and so into it. She went from being unfocused to being totally focused now that the movie is up and going.”

The 88-minute film, according to Thompson, will be shot mostly at “hidden locations” around L.A. in just 20 days and will find Lohan wearing not one, not two, but 66 costumes.

What’s more, Oscar-winning hair designer Beatrice De Alba has been hired to craft wigs for the leads.

“When you see both of them in full hair and makeup,” Thompson says, “it is the definition of movie magic.”

We’ll know for sure when Liz & Dick airs Nov. 3 on Lifetime.
