Lindsay Lohan has been sentenced to 90 days in jail followed by a stint in an inpatient drug rehabilitation facility after repeatedly breaching the terms of her probabtion by failing to attend alcohol education classes. The troubled actress's career has been in a never ending tailspin for the last few years; but Lohan does still have a few friends who are willing to support her.

One of them is Robert Rodriguez. The director recently worked with Lohan on his hotly anticipated film Machete, and he had nothing but kind words to say about her. "[Lohan] was fantastic," he gushed, "I really love working with her." 

"You just hear so much about people and their personal life that you start forgetting that they have a business life and they actually are a talented actress," said Rodriguez in an interview. The lovefest didn't end there, "She was just a joy to watch on screen, she lights up the screen anytime you put the camera on her."

Are you excited to see Lindsay Lohan back to work in Machete?

Mariela Rosario,

I'm a raging opinionista and I love to share my ramblings on everything from pop culture to food to stuff that makes me laugh & cry! I've worked in all types of media (TV, film, print) and was previously the online editor at Latina magazine before joining Mamás Latinas. On most nights you can find me working my way through my library of cookbooks or playing with my puppy Lola (my only child so far). I have a wonderful hubby who shares my passion for any and all kinds of travel. Together, we've formed a semi-professional wine drinking team.
