The 'Canyons' actress is said to have been approached by 'SNL' bosses to return to the show for the fifth time, but a source close to her says the report is 'not true.'
Lindsay Lohan is reportedly wanted to host "Saturday Night Live" again. According to Radar Online, the "Liz & Dick" star has been offered to tackle the gig for the show's upcoming 39th season premiere set for September 28.
" 'Saturday Night Live' has approached Lindsay to host the show again, and they were talking about the season opener," a so-called source close to the situation tells the site. The source adds, "She is definitely considering doing it. She loves the show and the people involved."
Should the report be true and she accept the offer, it will be the fifth time Lohan hosts the sketch show. The 27-year-old singer/actress has hosted the NBC variety series four times between 2004 and 2012.
Gossip Cop, however, begs to differ, checking in with a source close to the former Disney darling who says the report is "not true." Moreover, a so-called "SNL" insider allegedly says, "We have not locked in a host yet."
Since completing her 90-days court mandated rehab, Lohan has guest hosted "Chelsea Lately" and had a sitdown with Oprah Winfrey for "Oprah's Next Chapter". Her latest movie "The Canyons" has been released since August 2, and she made the film director Paul Schrader baffled by skipping the film premiere at the Venice Film Festival on August 30.
"For the last 16 months I've been held hostage, by my own choosing, to a very talented but unpredictable actress," the filmmaker said to the media when addressing her absence. He added, "She was supposed to be here today. She said she would be, but she is not."
Without explaining why she didn't attend the promotional event, Lohan took to her website to offer her apology. "I wish I could be there to celebrate with you in Venice. Paul Schrader, @braxtonpope, @JamesDeen could not have done it without you," she wrote.
