Estevez And Wood Hail 'Fabulous' Lohan

Actor/director EMILIO ESTEVEZ has lavished praise on LINDSAY LOHAN, insisting the Hollywood party princess is a talented and committed actress. When casting for new movie BOBBY, Estevez was worried Lohan's partying antics would prevent her from keeping up with his tough filming schedule, so he asked ELIJAH WOOD for a second opinion, and he says they were both blown away when they met her. He tells Empire magazine, "Lindsay's agents kept pushing her. I'd heard horrible stories, so I said, 'Is she interested in being thought of a serious actress? Because this schedule can't support anybody misbehaving.' They assured me, 'Yes, she wants to meet with you.' "So I called Elijah and said, 'I need you to come to lunch today.' I wanted another opinion, especially from the actor who would be in most of her scenes. "It ended up as a love-fest. We laughed, we told stories, she understood the script and the role and was committed. She left, and Elijah and I looked at each other and said, 'She'd be fabulous.'"
