Lindsay Lohan can't get work because she has an "unreliable reputation", director Paul Schrader has claimed.
The 27-year-old actress' last feature was erotic thriller 'The Canyons' and she failed to show up at the film's premiere at the Venice Film Festival last year, despite Schrader - who helmed the project - changing the location to suit her.
The 67-year-old filmmaker believes Lindsay's unpredictable behaviour is the reason the former child star is now losing out on roles she would be perfect for.
In an interview with The Independent Magazine, he said: "When you are working with someone who lives in a world of crisis and unpredictability, you're never really relaxed. You never know from one moment to the next. That's why Lindsay can't get hired. She can't get insured because she has an unpredictable reputation."
Despite having his own frustrations with the 'Mean Girls' star, Schrader thinks Lindsay - who has been in rehab and jail on several occasions - is a remarkable actress but believes she will only be successful again when she learns to keep her personal and professional lives separate.
He added: "She is so charismatic. You can't take your eyes off her. She has that thing that we watch in movies - which is all the more pity that she can't separate her personal from her professional life."
