Lindsay Lohan Is Off Probation, Cleared to Work…in Canada

Lindsay Lohan had a very good day on Thursday. Not only is she off formal probation for the first time in years, she’s been given the green light to head to Canada to film her upcoming Elizabeth Taylor biopic.

Lohan (who’s thankfully once again rocking red hair) appeared in a tasteful blue suit before a judge who removed her from probation in her Beverly Hills DUI case. And as expected, the probation in her jewelry-heist case was reduced to “informal” probation, which means she’ll no longer have to keep a probation officer on speed-dial for frequent check-ins.

Lilo told TMZ she hopes she’ll never have to see a judge ever again — an ambition that surely made tabloids around the world weep bitter tears of despair.

Meanwhile, on the professional front, things are also looking up for Lindsay. There were concerns that her legal woes could prevent her from getting the necessary Canadian permit to work on the Toronto set of her new Lifetime movie, ‘Liz and Dick,’ in which she’ll play iconic screen legend Elizabeth Taylor.

Seems our neighbors to the north don’t like issuing work permits to foreigners with criminal records, but Canadian officials have been reassured by Lohan’s recent run of law-abiding behavior and thus granted her permission to work in the land of maple leaves as planned.

Production is slated to kick off soon, and to prep for the role, Lindsay’s spent the past month or so reading biographies about Taylor and watching the late actress’s movies and interviews to absorb her posture, speech, and other behavioral nuances.
