EXCLUSIVE: Lindsay Lohan is not the only person working on the Lifetime film Liz & Dick who is suffering from exhaustion. I’ve learned that two crew members in the hair department left the production yesterday with exhaustion. The network had no information whether two two sought treatment though according to a source, they went to the hospital with “severe dehydration and exhaustion.” Word is that the crew of the movie about Elizabeth Taylor’s romance with Richard Burton, has been working 20 or more hours a day.
Lohan, who plays Taylor in the movie, made headlines Friday morning when paramedics were called to her hotel room where she was found unconscious. According to her spokesman, she had been on set from 7 PM the night before until 8 AM and was treated at the hotel for “some exhaustion and dehydration.” Lohan did not go to the hospital and returned to work Friday night. “After working 85 hours in 4 days, and being up all night shooting, be very aware that you might pass out from exhaustion & 7 paramedics MIGHT show up,” Lohan wrote on Twitter yesterday.
