Ledger's Advice For Lohan

Late actor HEATH LEDGER once warned LINDSAY LOHAN about the dangers of letting her celebrity status overshadow her acting career.
Lohan has become known as a notorious party girl in recent years, and has endured numerous legal troubles including two arrests for driving under the influence (DUI) and a stint in rehab to fight her addictions.
The Mean Girls star admits she has subsequently lost out on many movie roles because film bosses were too concerned about her party antics to hire her.
And Lohan has revealed it was tragic star Ledger, who died last year (08), who first pointed out to her that the press coverage of her social life could damage her career prospects.
She tells Interview magazine, "People really have come to believe - directors, producers, agents, whoever it may be - that I started in this because I wanted to be a celebrity. But that was never my intention.
"Heath Ledger once said something about this to me. He said: 'It's build-you-up to knock-you-down, and that's all it is. And you just have to see if you can stand through it.' And it is like that, if you put yourself in this situation."
