Some years ago (waaaay back in 2006
), plans were in the works for Lindsay Lohan
and Keira Knightley
to co-star as ladies who end up having a lesbian dalliance
in the big screen adaptation
of The Best Times of Our Lives
, a biopic
on Welsh poet Dylan Thomas
. As in Do not go gentle into that good night
, Rage, rage against the dying of the light (rendered by Rodney Dangerfield in this classic clip
). Here is a morally questionable website with a story on it, pre-filming
. Very pre-filming, since obviously the pic was never made. Oh, the crushing of testosterone
-fired hopes over this cancellation!! But, sadly, fate
made it not so. Lohan pulled out- no, wait, that sounds dirty, and anatomically implausible. Lohan backed out. Hmmmm, still potentially vulgar, if done just right.
Well what really happened is that there never was going to be any lesbianism
in the picture in the first place. Lohan was just talking out of ass
. There, now that
sounds positively filthy. Lohan went to rehab
and Sienna Miller joined up in her place
, and the film actually came out in mid-2008, under the name, The Edge of Love
. If you've never heard of it, that's because there was no lesbian sex in it whatsoever.
It also seems highly unlikely now that LiLo will ever share any screentime with Ms. Knightley, who was reported by unreliable sources
to have been heard cursing Lohan out on her cellphone in public.
