As Lindsay Lohan faces four charges in Los Angeles and New York, her former foe, Francesca Eastwood, is telling the ‘Liz & Dick’ star not to waste her talent, Celebuzz is reporting. The star of E!’s reality show, ‘Mrs. Eastwood & Company,’ and was just named Miss Golden Globe 2013 by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, said the ‘Liz & Dick’ star is “really talented. Don’t waste the talent.”
Lohan and Eastwood made headlines when the E! star was celebrating her 19th birthday at Hollywood hot spot Bootsy Bellows. As she partied with friends and her boyfriend, Tyler Shileds, in a private seating area, Lohan reportedly stormed the dinner, saying “I’m a star, she’s a nobody, get her out of here.” Eastwood took the high road, saying she still hand an amazing birthday, and that Lohan’s ‘Parent Trap’ remake is still her favorite movie.
Eastwood’s advice for Lohan came after she was charged with four misdemeanors on Thursday. She as arrested for third-degree assault after an alleged altercation with a fellow female patron, Tiffany Eve Mitchell, at Avenue nightclub in the Chelsea district of New York City. She also received three cages in connection to her June car crash on Pacific Coast Highway in Santa Monica. Her probation status is in question as a result of the charges against her.
Eastwood, meanwhile, said she’s preparing to step into the spotlight as the new Miss Golden Globe, which will be broadcast live from the Beverly Hilton on Sunday, January 13, 2013 at 8pm ET/5pm PT, on NBC. “I’m excited. I’m proud,” she said at a Globe’s party held Thursday at Cecconi’s in West Hollywood. “I can’t wait to go up there.”
Eastwood added that she quickly called her parents-actor-director Clint Eastwood and actress Frances Fisher-after she received the news. “I called them immediately when I found out I was offered and chosen to be Miss Golden Globe. And he said, ‘Ya know, I think that’s a really good idea.’ He’s really supportive.”
But Eastwood has admitted she does have some anxieties about the job. ” I’m just going to make sure that I can commit to my [heels] for the whole night,” she said. “I’m nervous about falling, but that’s about it.” But she has the perfect mentor to help her prepare. “My older sister was Miss Golden Globe in 2005, so I’ll definitely be calling her and asking her what it was like.”
