I don't see why. The production company has everything planned and scheduled in advance. Before any actors come on set lighting guys have worked for some time setting up lights, countless light meter readings have been taken, cameras have been put in position, sound engineers have prepared microphones and found places to place them and the boom operators that work them. If the scenes to be shot that day are outdoors, there is only a small window to shoot them, already planed out by producers, before the natural light goes away or permits expire.
By showing up late, or not showing up at all, she is costing the company lots of money. Everyone on set needs to be paid, even if they are just there sitting around waiting for Lohan to show up. A full lost day of shooting can cost tens of thousands of dollars. In signing her contract to do the movie, she agreed to show up and do her job, on time, and the company agreed to compensate her for that job. I don't think that reacting to the loss of time and tens of thousands of dollars due to someone who thinks that going out and getting drunk every night is being full of shit.
