Lindsay Lohan almost had to bow out of her latest film project, Labor Pains, because Insurance Companies did not want to cover her.
When actors have a history of substance abuse problems, they must gain cover from insurers before they can begin work on a movie. However, because of their issues with alcohol and drugs, they often have the most trouble getting such cover. And Lohan, who remains on probation for two DUI incidents last year, is no exception to the rule.
Producer of Labor Pains Rick Schwartz had extreme difficulty getting any Insurance Company to cover Lohan. A source says that the producer “could only find one insurance company to cover her, and even then he really had to vouch for her.”
With those logistics behind her, Lohan is now at work on the film, in which she plays a young woman who fakes pregnancy in attempt to avoid job termination. While getting Lohan on the books was a challenge, the film’s crew is happy things worked out and remain impressed with her attitude.
