You’ve heard of advocates for the homeless, but scandal-plagued starlet Lindsay Lohan may be the world’s first acting coach for the homeless. The Freaky Friday actress may teach acting classes at the Los Angeles homeless shelter where she a judge ordered her to complete more than 360 hours of community service during probation hearing this month.
On April 22, Judge Stephanie Saunders sentenced Lohan to 120 days in jail and ordered to serve 480 hours of community service — 360 hours at the shelter and 120 hours of janitorial work at the Los Angeles County Morgue — after she was found guilty of violating her probation on a 2007 DUI collar.
The Los Angeles Downtown Women’s Center runs a theater workshop for its homeless residents and wants Lohan to share her acting talents with the women. The workshop, which is called Dames Investing in Very Authentic Storytelling, or DIVAS, includes around 15 women who meet for two hours each week to learn how to express themselves through performing. Staff at the center is “extremely interested in having Lindsay contribute her talents when she kicks off her 360 hours of community service this week,” according to a spokesperson. Nothing’s written in red ink just yet, but the troubled starlet is believed to be just as interested in sharing her expertise on the bidness with the participants. After all, she’s only been acting since she was 9!
The repeat rehabber is free on bail pending the results of an appeal. Lohan, however, still faces trial on allegations that she swiped a necklace valued at more than $2,500 from a Venice jewelry shop in January.
