    [FONT=verdana, helvetica][SIZE=-1] The red carpet premiere of Georgia Rule may turn out to be a rather awkward affair.

    [/SIZE][/FONT] [FONT=verdana, helvetica][SIZE=-1] Jane Fonda became the latest of Lindsay Lohan's costars to weigh in on the 20-year-old actress' work ethic, giving props to the studio executive who chastised Lohan for her immature off-screen behavior. [/SIZE][/FONT][FONT=verdana, helvetica][SIZE=-1]"I think every once in a while, a very, very young person who is burning both ends of the candle needs to have somebody say, 'You know, you're going to pay the piper. You better slow down,'" Fonda told Access Hollywood Tuesday. "So I think it was good."

    [/SIZE][/FONT] [FONT=verdana, helvetica][SIZE=-1] The good thing the 9 To 5 star is referring to is the dressing-down Lohan received from Morgan Creek CEO James Robinson, who wrote a letter to the Mean Girls star in which he blamed her "all-night, heavy partying" as the reason for her chronic lateness and absences from the set. The day before the accusatory communiqué was sent, Lohan was treated for heat exhaustion at a Los Angeles-area hospital.

    [/SIZE][/FONT] [FONT=verdana, helvetica][SIZE=-1] "[Lohan's] in the magazines, so you always know what she's doing because you can just read about it in the tabloids," Fonda said. "She parties all the time…And you know, she's young and she can get away with it. But, you know, it's hard after a while to party very hard and work very hard. She'll learn that."

    [/SIZE][/FONT] [FONT=verdana, helvetica][SIZE=-1] While Fonda, 68, was never one to stay home during her hey-day, she tended to spend more of her free time championing civil rights and protesting the Vietnam War--at least as far as the media were concerned. [/SIZE][/FONT]
    [FONT=verdana, helvetica][SIZE=-1] The Monster-in-Law star's comments came a few weeks after William H. Macy, who appears in Bobby alongside Lohan, praised the actress' talent but admitted that she was late to the set now and then, a "very, very disrespectful" thing to do. As Fonda did, Macy expressed his concern for Lohan, who to him seems to be piling too much on her proverbial plate for a girl of her age.

    [/SIZE][/FONT] [FONT=verdana, helvetica][SIZE=-1] Macy's wife, Felicity Huffman, also stars in Georgia Rule, playing mother to Lohan's troubled teen character. Fonda plays the grandma in the intergenerational female-bonding flick, directed by Garry Marshall.

    [/SIZE][/FONT] [FONT=verdana, helvetica][SIZE=-1] Well, if you believe the tabloids, Lohan could do with an extra helping of guidance from an elder stateswoman. And Fonda could be just the two-time Oscar winner to play the role.

    [/SIZE][/FONT] [FONT=verdana, helvetica][SIZE=-1] "She's so alone out there in the world in terms of structure and people to nurture her," Fonda said. "She is so talented. Oh my gosh, she can access emotion like nothing... And she just makes me cry. I just want to take her in my arms and hold her until she's grown up."

    [/SIZE][/FONT] [FONT=verdana, helvetica][SIZE=-1] Perhaps Lohan, who has said that she would like to travel to Iraq to entertain U.S. troops, could take a page from Fonda's playbook.

  2. LiLo is too self absorbed to take any advice.
  3. what 18/19/20 year old isn't? heck even 30/40/50 aren't immune from irresponsiblity.

    i empathize with her really. it's hard being that age even normally. it seems to me that girl has everything stacked so high on her plate without a support system around her to help balance it all. i've seen it happen in a lot of different ways to a lot of different people. fortunately, most of us don't have papparrazzi following us around or employers leaking our job performance reviews to the press.

    look at me talking like i know her. hehe.
  4. ^^^sorry, but when is her age going to stop being an excuse for her? She gets paid the big bucks so I think she should start acting more responsibly. Whether or not her job performance was leaked to the press is not the issue. If she is not up to her employer's standards, then who's fault is that?
