Lindsay Lohan has been ordered to gain weight for her new movie, femalefirst.co.uk reports.
The actress — who has been looking worryingly thin since her breakup from girlfriend Samantha Ronson — was told by producers of The Other Side to pile on the pounds because her part requires her to.
A source told America’s Star magazine: “Producers want Lindsay looking like a normal, healthy girl, not a skeleton. So they ordered her to rest up and eat more. They refuse to risk her dropping out of the movie because of her problems.”
Lindsay landed the role in the comedy earlier this month, her first big-screen outing since 2007’s flop I Know Who Killed Me.
Commenting on her casting, the film’s director David Michaels said: “Lindsay’s very aware of people’s perceptions of her. She’s really committed to doing what she has to in order to change that.”
