Lindsay Lohan has hired a new publicist in an attempt to rehab her image.
The troubled starlet has hired Hollywood publicist Steve Honig of The Honig Company, whose clients include Fiore Films, the production company that is producing Lohan’s upcoming role in the mob bio-pic Gotti: Three Generations.
Honig will handle all of LiLo’s public relations and publicity. Lindsay hasn’t had a full-time publicist since she parted ways with Leslie Sloane several years ago.
Lindsay formally pled no contest Wednesday to a misdemeanor grand theft charge, and she’s eager to put the past behind her and move on.
In a statement to RadarOnline.com, the Mean Girls star says: “I am glad to be able to put this past me and move on with my life and my career. I support the judge’s decision and hold myself accountable for being in this situation. I have already started my community service at the Downtown Women’s Center and thank everyone there for their warm welcome. I hope to be able to fulfill my obligation without any press attention. I think the media spotlight should be on issues such as homelessness and domestic violence instead of on me.”
Lindsay has an uphill battle to stay out of trouble given her past history. Lindsay will be on probation for three years in connection with the grand theft.
