Playing by the ‘Rule’

Lohan, Robinson all smiles at film's preem

All seemed harmonious between Morgan Creek topper James G. Robinson and Lindsay Lohan at the premiere of “Georgia Rule” on Tuesday at the Ziegfeld.

Last July during filming, Lohan received a sternly worded letter, which went public, from Robinson, the pic’s producer, telling her that hard partying was no excuse for not showing up on set.

“We needed that letter to get her back to work,” the movie’s director, Garry Marshall, admitted during the after-party at China Club. “I thought (Robinson) did a tough love kind of thing,” he added. “She had to suck it up.”

Pic’s Jane Fonda, Felicity Huffman and eventually a newly outfitted Lohan joined Marshall at the club, which hosted VIPs on the main floor while the common folk were regulated to the venue’s rooftop.

Marshall went on to explain the reasoning behind releasing the film in the wake of “Spider-Man 3.”

“Since this film is about redemption, forgiveness and dysfunction, we thought Mother’s Day weekend would be good,” he said.

Preem benefited the Women’s Media Center.
