Maybe Lindsay can take her jail sentence as her Robert Downey Jr. moment. Downey had years of issues with drugs, and when he finally had to do some jail time for it, he used it as the opoortunity to turn his life around. He joined the cast of Ally McBeal, he got parts in James Toback films, did Kiss Kiss Bang Bang and The Shaggy Dog, and then out of the blue, he got Iron Man. And now he's one of the biggest movie stars in the world.
Lindsay's talented. I know it's easy to bash her, but she demonstrated in Mean Girls and A Prairie Home Companion she has talent. Now she really needs to get rid of all her bad friends, not associate with those who encourage her off the wrong path, do her time, and then find some supporting work to get her back on track, prove she's no longer a train wreck, prove she shouldn't be a top anyone's Dead Pool list.
