In light of Lindsay Lohan’s approaching release fom rehab, it’s been reported and denied that fashion model Lydia Hearst is playing the role of Lindsay Lohan in the movie Dogs in Pocketbooks, a parody on Hollywood and celebrity obsession.
“Lydia will play a bratty movie goddess in and out of rehab, in trouble with the law, and hounded by greedy agents, predatory paparazzi, off-the-wall stalkers and crazed media – a role obviously based on Lindsay Lohan,” screenwriter Charles Casillo told the New York Post.
“I spent a lot of time casting for the right actress for this screwball comedy, but Lydia is perfect.”
According to the Huffington Post, the movie isn’t intended to be mean-spirited towards Lohan, Casillo said, but rather “a spoof on the modern celebrity obsession.”
The model/heiress recently denied any reports that she will be acting for this film.
Despite Casillo’s statement, Hearst, 26, tweeted, “Just so we are all clear, my hair is red because I am the new face of Schwarzkopf color. I am a model. I dyed my hair to front the campaign.
As for any theatrical roles I am currently filming Two Jacks directed by Bernard Rose. My next project is Catwalk by Tony Hickox,” Hearst added. “Thank you all for your messages of encouragement during my transition into acting. I truly love and appreciate it. At this time I am not officially signed onto any other projects. Thank you.”
The young socialite has modeled for fashion magazines such as Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar and Elle and for designers such as Louis Vuitton, Moschino and Prada. She was a Page Six columnist and once acted as Lily van der Woodsen’s interior decorator, Amelia, in the CW’s Gossip Girl for the season one finale. She’s also starred in the 2009 international fim, The Last International Playboy. She is reportedly dating 58-year-old Jeff Goldblum.
