Lindsay Lohan Starts House Arrest For Jewellery Theft Case and Stars in Richard Phillips' Art Film

Lindsay Lohan Starts House Arrest and Stars in an Art Film

After Lindsay Lohan pleaded no contest in her jewellery theft case a few weeks ago she was sentenced to four months in jail, but instead of heading to prison the actress will be serving her sentence at home. She turned herself in to the Lynwood Jail at 5:02 a.m. Thursday (LA time), was fitted with an electronic ankle bracelet, and an hour later had returned to her Venice, California home to start her house arrest. An LA sheriff spokesman told People, “She is now confined to the interior premises of her home at all times.” She may only have to serve about two weeks of her sentence.

Lindsay is also the main attraction in a new short art film by painter Richard Phillips where she plays multiple versions of herself. Asked why he chose Lindsay as the subject of his first film, Richard said, “What fascinates me about Lindsay are not her problems but the way she embodies an eminence on the level of a Bardot or an Ullmann. She’s a combination of the fantastic and the real, which is what makes her so magnetic. She can also bring forward an existential presence that speaks to the isolated self.” The film is part of an exhibition that will open the 54th Venice Beinnale next week.
