She was slated to promote her new flick “The Canyons” at the 2013 Venice Film Festival today, but Lindsay Lohan elected to stay home instead.

Given that she recently got out of a drug and alcohol rehabilitation clinic, the “Mean Girls” actress felt it was best to steer clear of the scene in favor of maintaining her straight and narrow lifestyle.

Nevertheless, director Paul Schrader had nothing but great things to say about LiLo during a pre-screening press conference.

He explained that Lindsay has some of the same tendencies as the late Marilyn Monroe- "They aren’t the same as actresses, they are very different. But both have had trouble separating their professional lives from their personal lives."
