All Lindsay Lohan has talked about is how badly she wants to become a working actress again, so then why is she trying to get out of her role in “Scary Movie 5”? The troubled former child star has been avoiding producers of the spoof film for the past two weeks, reports New York Post’s Page Six, which adds that Lohan has been a no-show for rehearsals, missed her Sunday flight from NYC to Atlanta (where it’s being filmed), and even claimed she was suffering from walking pneumonia.

The 26-year-old even went as far as to go to a New York-area hospital over the weekend to “get her lungs checked” to prove she had pneumonia. “She is under contract – so to get out of it, she had to prove that she was sick,” says one source. But Lohan apparently didn’t get the sick note she was hoping for because another source adds that – after she was threatened with a law suit by Dimension Films – she was on a private plane bound for Atlanta (which producers provided for her).

According to the newspaper’s source, Lohan “freaked out” when she read the script and realized the movie was making fun of her trouble with the law and substance abuse. Even worse, to her, is that she would have to share a kiss with Charlie Sheen. Two days before she missed her flight, “the producers had been getting signs that she was a mess, and would not be fit to work,” says a source.

Lohan’s rep denied any trouble and told Page Six: “These stories are untrue, and she is willingly fulfilling all of her obligations.”
