Baz Luhrmann - Baz Luhrmann supports Lindsay Lohan

Baz Luhrmann is praying for Lindsay Lohan.

The 'Great Gatsby' director thinks the 26-year-old actress, who is currently in the midst of a 90 day court-ordered stint in rehab after pleading no contest to lying to police about driving during a car crash in California last June, is hugely talented and he hopes she can get her life and career back on track.

The 50-year-old Australian moviemaker said: ''I have known Lindsay since she was very young.

''She's a talented girl. I pray that she can bring herself back to the place where she came from because she is a talented actress. I feel for her, I really do.''

Once she completes her rehab treatment, the 'Mean Girls' star will undergo more than a year of psychotherapy and 30 days of community service as part of her probation.

The 'Moulin Rouge' director also voiced his support for another tabloid favourite, Kim Kardashian, who he thinks looks ''elegant'' pregnant.

He told Australian talk show 'Dirty Laundry Live': ''I met her the other night, about two weeks ago. I had dinner with her and Kanye at a friend's place. She's an extraordinarily elegant woman, pregnant. I was really struck by her grace.''
