It's safe to say Thursday wasn't Lindsay Lohan's best day.
Not long after she was arrested for allegedly punching a woman in a New York City club, Lohan was charged with lying to police after she crashed her car into a big rig June 8 on the Pacific Coast Highway in Santa Monica.
Prosecutors charged the actress with resisting, obstructing, or delaying an officer in the course of their duties, providing false information to an officer, and reckless driving, according to E! News. All of are misdemeanors, and a court date has not yet been set.
Lohan is currently on probation for stealing jewelry from a Venice store earlier this year. And if the crash wasn't enough to get her probation revoked, the assault charges on the other side of the country might.
Maybe they'll split the difference and put her in jail in St. Louis or something.
The alleged assault was trhe result of Lohan and another woman fighting over Max George from the boy band The Wanted. According to TMZ, Lohan went to the Justin Bieber concert in New York, where The Wanted was opening the show. She met up with George and some of his friends at a hotel bar, then went to a club together.
Apparently as the night went on, Lohan got pretty... wait for it ... drunk, which turned George off. He then started talking to another woman, which made Lohan, like, totally mad. Words were exchanged and Lohan allegedly hauled off and let the woman have it, punching her in the
Well, that makes sense. Guys always take home the girl who throws the best right cross.
Anyway, the police were called, but didn't arrive before Lohan took off around 4 a.m. They found her outside, leaving the scene with someone else behind the wheel. They arrested her for alleged assault. Apparently, while she was in handcuffs, she kept repeating "Are you kidding me?"
Lohan was booked on suspicion of third degree misdemeanor assault and released several hours after she was taken into custody. TMZ said investigators went back to the club looking for security footage of the alleged altercation.
HALLE BERRY SELLING FIGHT HOUSE: Halle Berry is selling the house where the big Gabriel Aubry-Olivier Martinez brawl took place on Thanksgiving.
Maybe she couldn't get the blood out of the driveway.
TMZ said Berry is selling the place for $15 million. Multiple real estate sources said Berry gave a prominent realtor a pocket listing -- which means property that isn't advertised. The broker -- Billy Rose -- happened to own the place a decade ago. He renovated it and sold it to actor Frankie Muniz, who later sold it to Berry.
That's right -- a celebrity's current man violently pummels her former man, and everything about her suddenly becomes a story.
TMZ said last week Berry got an $11 million offer, but she's holding out for more. Hopefully the two guys rolling around on the driveway didn't push the price down.
In case you have that kind of money laying around, it's a 5-bedroom, 5,900 square-foot Tuscan-style estate, with a huge backyard, a 1,400-square-foot. guest house, a pool and spa, fireplaces galore, and incredible landscaping, hardly any of which has yet been destroyed by two idiots kicking the snot out of each other.
Berry obtained a temporary restraining order against Aubry after the fight, barring him from being with 100 yards of Berry, their 4-year-old daughter, and Martinez, the latter was included just in case Aubry decides to assault Martinez's fists again with his face. Aubry also got a restraining order against Martinez, which makes perfect sense. Berry is trying to get a permanent restraining order against Aubrey, with whom she was involved in an ugly custody battle.
MATTHEW MCCONAUGHEY LOST ALMOST 40 POUNDS: Matthew McConaughey has pretty much been vanishing before our eyes the past few months. But he says there's nothing to worry about.
"I feel fine. I really do," McConaughey, 43, told the Daily Beast, saying his quest to lose nearly 40 pounds from his chiseled 183-pound frame was healthy, disciplined and well thought-out.
He probably said the same thing about the whole naked bongo episode.
The dramatic weight loss was needed to play HIV-positive Ron Woodruff in the upcoming film "Dallas Buyers Club."
"I'm eating fresh fish. I'm just eating small amounts. I'm not being starved," said the actor, who also says he's sleeping well. "If anything, it's as much a spiritual journey as it is physical."
I don't know. You see a lot of big beefy people in church.
Though his body's "fine," McConaughey says, "Everything has shrunk quite a bit. ... I don't have the leverage I used to. I have body soreness. But I'm as healthy as can be. My blood pressure, everything's fine."
Everything shrunk? Uh ...
McConaughey said getting back to his normal weight will be tricky, as he risks getting a form of diabetes.
"You can't just start eating cheeseburgers and ice cream," he said. "Your body will go into shock."
CHINA CATCHING UP TO U.S. BOX OFFICE: Within seven years, China will eclipse the United States in box office revenue, according to a study by accounting firm Ernst & Young reported Thursday's Los Angeles Times.
That's not surprising, since both places are obviously full of commies.
China's domestic media and entertainment industry is expected to grow at an average 17 percent annual rate through 2015, exceeding the country's overall economic growth, according to the study, released at a conference hosted by the accounting firm in Shanghai. China currently has the second largest film revenue.
I guess we now know why producers changed the enemy in the new "Red Dawn" from the Chinese to the North Koreans.
According to Studio Briefing, the report also said the Chinese entertainment industry faces numerous obstacles, including domestic piracy so pervasive that Chinese consumers expect to pay little or nothing for content. Government restrictions will also limit participation by domestic or foreign private companies.
In a statement, Ernst & Young's John Nendick said: "The challenges for media and entertainment companies to penetrate China are still considerable; however, the vast potential of the market makes it impossible to ignore."
KRISTEN STEWART WAS A MESS: Kristen Stewart went out Thursday night dressed like she just rolled out of bed.
Yes, this does qualify as news, and will continue to as long as 20 million crazed twihards still think it qualifies as news. I have a family to feed.
According to Us Weekly, weeks after she wore glamorous couture gowns by Christian Dior, Zuhair Murad and other designers, the 22-year-old actress dressed down at the Variety Awards Studio in Los Angeles.
Everyone say it with me: "O ... M ...G!"
With messy hair hanging over one shoulder, the "Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2" actress showed off her black bra through a sheer A.L.C. top, which she paired with plaid Juicy pants and Cole Haan oxfords. Stewart completed her look with kohl-rimmed eyes and a nude lip.
I don't know what any of this means, but I'm just the messenger.
Us Weekly said that during a recent interview with The Cut, Stewart's stylist, Tara Swennen, explained how Stewart's style has evolved since they began working together in 2007.
"She's a tomboy at heart, but she understands that fashion is an arena, that she can be a chameleon and not dress the way she does every single day," Swennen said. "She'll always change into her Converse by halfway through a carpet, which is to be expected at this point, but she puts on the heels for me for the photos, God bless her."
Yes, please God. Bless Kristen Stewart.
Still, Swennen admitted, "There are definitely times when I have to say, 'Please, please, please put the heel on just for me.'"
My mom used to try that with me. It was a little weird.
Stewart has been more willing to embrace feminine frocks in recent years, Swennen added. "One of the things that I love about her is that she is willing to take a risk. As a stylist, that is one of the best things you can ask for," the stylist told The Cut. "She's not afraid of prints and sheerness and textures, so I just hope we can to continue to do fun things."
