Lindsay Lohan has impressed the producers of new movie LABOR PAINS with her work ethic - despite earning a reputation as a tardy star on the set of her previous movie GEORGIA RULE.
Lohan infuriated studio chief James G. Robinson with her lateness and partying while shooting the 2007 drama, eventually causing him to write a letter to the star in July 2006 attacking her unprofessionalism.
But according to a producer on upcoming comedy Labor Pains - in which Lohan plays a publishing assistant who pretends to be pregnant in a bid to keep her job - the 21-year-old has been a consummate professional.
Producer Rich Schwarts tells industry publication Variety, "I didn't know Lindsay before this, but we looked each other in the eye three months ago, and she has done everything I could have asked."
Shooting on the movie, which also stars Chris Parnell and Cheryl Hines, begins on 9 June (08) in Burbank, California.
