Lindsay Lohan looked more like Victoria Gotti than a Hollywood starlet at the amfAR Gala, the annual AIDS fundraiser started by the late Elizabeth Taylor that routinely opens New York Fashion Week.
Everyone on the carpet was buzzing about how tired and drawn the beleaguered actress looked. There was her long, fake, dry hair, and the dark circles under her eyes. An unflattering white mid-calf skirt suit and a long coat with Yeti hair cuffs and hem completed the picture.
But at one point in the evening, Lohan was spotted excitedly talking to none other than Oscar-nominated Midnight in Paris director Woody Allen. Here’s how this tear in the fabric of the celebrity universe happened:
It seems Lohan arrived late and did her usual lap to scope out the place. Then she made a beeline for a familiar face, none other than gala-regular Allen and his wife Soon-Yi. The flashbulbs lit up and headlines were made.
Neither Allen nor Soon-Yi look particularly pleased in the photos. But Lohan sure does. We can just imagine Woody saying to himself "Of all the celebrities in this joint -- Heidi Klum, Julianne Moore, Rose Byrne, Sarah Jessica Parker Cindy Crawford..."
So how exactly do these disparate celebs know each other? It seems Lohan met the film icon several months ago at agent John Burnham‘s New Year’s Eve party for Allen. Lohan spent the evening hanging out with Allen's former girlfriend Diane Keaton. The next day, Keaton even tweeted “@lindsaylohan YOU LOOKED BEAUTIFUL LAST NIGHT.”
Trying to explain his relationship with Lohan, Allen later admitted that he was just saying hello to her.
"I had seen her on New Year’s Eve. She was at a party that I was at, and we were just saying, ‘What a coincidence.’ That was the gist of it. I’ve only met her those two times in my life.”
Woody, we feel your pain. We also hope the dating rumors do not start. And while we know Lindsay has some attributes you may appreciate, please don't make her your new muse. We beg you.
