Lohan, fresh from her Playboy shoot and about to go to jail for probation violations, insisted that she was an invited guest to the party for the Clint Eastwood-directed biopic about legendary FBI director Hoover and talked her way past security at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel on Thursday night.
“Lindsay was arguing with the security to let her in, dropping every celebrity’s name to get in," a source said. "She could be heard saying, ‘I have to go and see Leo.' Eventually they let her in, but she made everybody uncomfortable. She was aggressive and random, storming around. She tried to get to Leo, but he was surrounded by his security and a posse of his friends."
The source added, “Clint and Leo and Dustin Lance Black were talking, and Lindsay sent one of her aides over, demanding to get a photo with them, but security shooed them away."
Another spy at the party -- attended by Ron Howard, Harvey Weinstein, Brett Ratner and actress/producer Christie Cashman -- said that Lohan kept asking to meet Oscar-winning producer Brian Grazer, who had already left.
The movie, which is generating considerable Oscar buzz for DiCaprio, opened the AFI Fest at Grauman’s Chinese Theater. It was not clear how Lohan managed to get past AFI security, which sealed off the whole block and would only allow their official limos in.
Lohan has to turn herself in to jail by Wednesday to serve a 30-day sentence. But this did not stop her from turning up at the Hollywood Roosevelt with her hair and makeup still done up from her earlier Playboy shoot.
Lohan’s representative said, “She did not crash. She was invited by a guest who attended the event. I am not aware of her asking for photos with Leo or Clint. She was never asked to leave.”
Representatives for DiCaprio and Grazer declined to comment.
