Tina Fey Wishes for Lindsay Lohan's Movie Triumphant Return
Tina Fey hopes Lindsay Lohan will make a triumphant return to the big screen following a string of box-office flops - because she showed such potential as a teenager filming "Mean Girls". Fey wrote and starred in the 2004 movie, in which Lohan played a naive school girl who becomes part of a ruthless girl gang.
The "30 Rock" star was convinced the 23-year-old actress was destined for a stellar movie career and was devastated to watch the actress' personal problems overshadow her professional life. Lohan, who has endured a string of legal problems and stints in rehab, went on to appear in a string of critically-panned films, including 2007 "Georgia Rule" and thriller "I Know Who Killed Me".
But Fey is confident the former child star can turn her career around. She says, "Lindsay was 17 when she did ('Mean Girls') and she was brilliant. But to have success and money at that age has got to be overwhelming. No one tells you 'No', and I definitely wouldn't want that for my child. Lindsay was a lovely girl, very smart and very funny - and I hold out hope that we'll see some really good work from her again."
