As Lindsay Lohan's due in court Wednesday, to hear she’s charged with felony grand theft in connection with a stolen $2,500 necklace, RadarOnline.com caught up with her co-star in The Parent Trap Lisa Ann Walter, who told us exclusively that her doors are always open to the actress, who she thinks is a victim of miscommunication in her latest round of legal wrangling.
Walter, who played Chessie in the 1998 Disney hit alongside a young Lohan, said she's watched Lindsay grow up, and understands the pressure Lindsay faces always being in the limelight.
"Kids, especially in this arena, get put into a very unnatural situation," said Walter, who's also appeared in films such as Bruce Almighty, War Of The Worlds and Killers. "By the way, the kinds of things she's going through can happen to anyone -- it happened to me, it's just that there wasn't paparazzi looking at every single piece of it along the way.
"I think she's going to come through," Walter told us at Sweet E's bakery in Los Angeles Tuesday, where Dancing With The Stars beauty Karina Smirnoff was celebrating the launch of her Girlactik makeup line. "I think that she's a smart girl ... if she's going through a rough time, she can sleep on my couch any time -- I'll take care of her."
As for the allegations over a stolen necklace, Walter said she chalks the incident up to miscommunication.
"What I think happened, honestly, she probably was there, there was a mistake in communication about what's considered swag and what's not ... and I think it was probably miscommunication.
“I wasn't there, I have absolutely no idea ... it's easy to go, 'She did this and that,' because we're talking about it."

"Absolutely, she can get through her current problems ... and Americans love to forgive."
