Lindsay Lohan's stint in jail won't affect her ability to reinvigorate her career, Machete co-stars Jessica Alba, Michelle Rodriguez and the film's director Robert Rodriguez said at the premiere last night. In fact, it may even make her stronger than ever.
"Lindsay is so good in the movie, and I can't wait for her to see it," Jessica Alba told People. "It's awesome. She's great. I'm very proud."
Director Robert Rodriguez was also very proud of Lilo's turn as a nun with a gun in his latest flick. "She's awesome in the movie. She's going to enjoy it a lot," he said. "She can do anything she wants. This movie is so great for her. I think she's got a lot of talent, obviously. So, it's all up to her."
Michelle Rodriguez, who also was sent to jail following a DUI, knows what Lindsay is going through and thinks Lilo will not only pull through, but flourish.
"This crazy little party girl who loves to enjoy life actually has a purpose," Rodriguez said. "So, that's really the core of why I've survived so many years and I can go and I can fall down and I can get back up. Why? Because I know why I'm here.
That's the question that a lot of people need to answer when they do fall is, 'Why am I here?' If you can answer that question, you'll be able to dust yourself off and shine like a phoenix out of ashes."
Let's hope Lindsay, who stayed home from the premiere last night to make a late night joyride to a friend's house, does just that!
