Lindsay Lohan Turned Down the Chance to Star in a Burger King Commercial

She would've had to pretend to smoke a chicken fry.

Actress/tabloid fodder Lindsay Lohan apparently rejected the Burger King's offer to star in one of its ads. Lohan was asked to wear a Spicy Chicken Fries carton and smoke a chicken fry "as if it were a cigarette." Lohan allegedly rejected the deal because it "poked fun at her past," though to be fair, who wants to dress up as a chicken fries carton anyways?

A different source says it was actually Burger King that rejected Lohan because she wanted "creative control" and wanted to make too many changes to the script. Maybe she should have taken the money so she can finally open that high-end Mexican restaurant in New York City she hinted at way back when.
