Lindsay Lohan wants to be part of ‘incredible’ Saudi movement

JEDDAH: US actress Lindsay Lohan has said she wants to be part of the “incredible” social reforms movement currently underway in Saudi Arabia.
The “Mean Girls” star tweeted a New York Times article about the lifting of a ban on cinemas, concerts and women’s driving in Saudi Arabia, and wrote: “Please support this incredible #movement … I look forward to being a part of this with the movie #FRAMETHEMOVIE.”
While Lohan’s fans welcomed her tweet, some were left perplexed with the hashtagged words, which they guessed was the name of a new movie. “IS THIS A NEW MOVIE ANNOUNCEMENT!?” asked a fan.
Another fan, Daniel Wayne wrote: “I’m ready for your comeback.”
Saudi Arabia on Monday lifted a decades-long ban on cinemas, part of a series of social reforms by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.
International and Middle Eastern cinema chains are eager to expand into the Kingdom following the historic decision, which will allow movie theaters to operate from early 2018.
On Tuesday, giant US cinema chain AMC Entertainment signed a deal to build and operate movie theaters in the country.
The country is expected to have more than 300 cinemas — with over 2,000 screens — by 2030, giving rise to an industry that would contribute $24 billion to the economy, according to the Saudi Ministry of Culture and Information.

Actress Selma Blair say she has been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis

  • Blair has co-starred in a number of films and TV shows, including the 2001 hit “Legally Blonde”

WASHINGTON: Actress Selma Blair revealed she has multiple sclerosis Saturday, in an emotional Instagram post offering insight into her life with the illness.
The “Legally Blonde” and “Cruel Intentions” star, 46, said she was diagnosed with the chronic central nervous system disease — which causes symptoms including fatigue, pain and coordination problems — in August after suffering symptoms “for years.”
“I am disabled. I fall sometimes. I drop things. My memory is foggy. And my left side is asking for directions from a broken gps. But we are doing it. And I laugh and I don’t know exactly what I will do precisely but I will do my best,” she wrote.
Blair, who is currently working on Netflix sci-fi drama “Another Life,” said she revealed her diagnosis to share her gratitude toward costume designer Alissa Swanson, who “carefully gets my legs in my pants, pulls my tops over my head, buttons my coats and offers her shoulder to steady myself.”
Blair also thanked celebrity friends including fellow “Cruel Intentions” star Sarah Michelle Gellar as well as Jaime King and other Hollywood friends for supporting her.
“I am in the thick of it but I hope to give some hope to others,” she said.
“I want to play with my son again. I want to walk down the street and ride my horse. I have MS and I am ok. But if you see me, dropping crap all over the street, feel free to help me pick it up. It takes a whole day for me alone. “
