Lindsay Lohan is not “begging” Oprah to cast her in a Broadway play, despite a new report that claims the actress is looking for a role in one of the book adaptations the famed talk show host is bringing to the stage. Gossip Cop can exclusively debunk this story from In Touch, the same tabloid that once falsely alleged Lohan and Tina Fey were planning a Mean Girls sequel.

According to the tabloid, Lohan is “hoping” to make it to Broadway with a “little help” from Oprah who has bought the rights to several books she wants to adapt into plays. A so-called “insider” claims to the magazine that Lohan is looking to Oprah for roles because the media mogul had helped her get cast in David Mamet’s play Speed-the-Plow,” which marked her London theatre debut. The “source” adds that if Lohan’s plan “doesn’t work out” she intends to have Oprah “get her an audition for something like ‘Cabaret’ because she needs “another helping hand.”

Let’s stop right there. First off, Oprah did NOT get Lohan the part in “Speed-the-Plow.” And while Lohan is grateful for all of Oprah’s support, she is not pressing her to cast her in roles or get her auditions. A source close to Lohan tells Gossip Cop exclusively that the In Touch story is absolutely not true, and the actress is not “begging” Oprah for work.
