New York: The ‘Mean Girl’ actress Lindsay Lohan has turned down an interview with ‘Today’ show host Matt Lauer at the last minute, as she was ‘not mentally prepared’.
Lauer flew cross-country to interview the ‘Machete’ star under house arrest, with intentions to tape a lengthy piece for NBC’s news-magazine show ‘Dateline’.
According to Lohan’s spokesman Steve Honig, the problem was that she thought she was primping for a 15-minute ‘check-in’ segment on the show.
“Of course there was a little stress involved,” the New York Daily News quoted Honig as saying.
“She woke up thinking it would be a brief ‘Today’ show segment. And you can’t just all of a sudden go from that to let’s sit down and talk about your life for two hours,” he said.
“She wasn’t mentally prepared,” he added.
Producers were setting up equipment in Lohan’s California townhouse when Honig pulled the plug.
