Lohan to gain weight for Warhol?

Linday Lohan continues to distance from her pop princess roots. She’s already signed up to work for Robert Altman in ‘Prairie Home Companion’ and for Emilio Estevez in his indie passion project ‘Bobby’. Now the Disney Radio superstar has signed up for another serious movie, the Andy Warhol/Edie Sedgwick biopic ‘Factory Girl’.

According to the New York Post’s Page Six, the film’s producers were intentionally looking for someone of her reputation. Lohan beat out Mary Kate Olsen for the part by impressing in her audition.

In the movie, Lindsay will play Brigid Berlin (a self described “overweight troublemaker”) opposite Guy Pearce as Andy Warhol and Sienna Miller as Sedgwick. Brigid was a central figure in Andy Warhold’s entourage, she was also rather big-boned. That should make it easy for Lohan to avoid a return to Skeletor status, but is she willing to actually get fat for the role? Brigid was a big, big girl known for her photography and an ongoing battle with obsessive compulsive disorder Note the date on this article may be incorrect due to importing it from our old system.
