Actress Hendrix Knew Lohan Would Be Trouble
LINDSAY LOHAN's THE PARENT TRAP co-star ELAINE HENDRIX has blamed the actress' "tumultuous family dynamic" for her rocky personal life - insisting she always knew troubles would follow the star.
Hendrix worked with the then-budding young star on the hit 1998 Disney film - when Lohan was just 12 years old - and even then she knew the pre-teen was set for tough times.
Lohan went on to star in a string of successful films, including 2004's Mean Girls, but her promising career has been marred by a string of drink driving charges and allegations of excess boozing and partying.
Hendrix reveals that from what she saw of Lohan's family, she was convinced the talented young actress would have difficulty adapting to life in Hollywood.
She tells Fox News, "I didn’t know she was going to be the next big thing, but it’s not really a surprise that she is where she is. She’s extremely talented, but she has a tumultuous family dynamic happening, so it’s not really a surprise she is where she is.
"Growing up having the experiences she’s had, those things affect her behaviour and her decisions.”
