It's easy to forget that Lindsay Lohan used to actually be a credible actress.
Lohan wants to make a big comeback with her upcoming role in Inferno where she plays infamous porn star, Linda Lovelace.
The movies director, Matthew Wilder thinks that Lindsay life actually has "kind of a weird parallel" with the late porn star Linda Lovelace.

"Both of them grew up in this case where there was kind of this whole industry built around them," Wilder tells E! news.
"It's built around destroying her."
"It really breaks my heart," the director says. "Every day I look and see these horrible things and people wishing horrible things on her...The real person is very thoughtful and cares about acting and has a lot of heart. Not this kind of screwball that's depicted everyday in the press. They want a person to project what they hate or what they envy on."
But Wilder thinks that this role is definitely gonna change the way people view Lindsay Lohan.
"What I'm hoping now with our project is it's going to turn the ship sort of," he says. They're not going to see this whacked-out person…They're going to see the artist coming out."
Wilder is hoping that at that point people will once again see Lindsay as the true artist/actress she instead of the train-wreck she is portrayed as in the public.
"In a way I kind of want this murmuring of meanness right now," Wilder says. "I feel like when this actually comes out and when you see what the movie is and what she's doing, it's going to be so unexpected that it's going to actually kind of blow people's minds."
