Lindsay Lohan Turned Down Role In 'The Hangover'

Lindsay Lohan (photosLindsay Lohan photos) could have been in the biggest R-rated comedy of the summer but she turned down the role because she thought the script "had no potential."

'Us Weekly' reports a mutual agent campaigned to give Lindsay Lohan a chance to star in the flick, but when director Todd Phillips finally agreed, Lohan said she wasn't interested and passed on the movie.

"The agent tried hard to get Phillips to consider her," says the source, "but Lindsay said she didn't like the script!"

The role of the stripper, one that Lindsay is familiar with from her 2007 bomb 'I Know Who Killed Me', eventually went to Heather Graham.

It may be one of the biggest missteps of her dying career as the $35 million comedy, which also has a sequel in the works, has gone on to take in more than $270 million worldwide.

Meanwhile, Lohan is also facing allegations that she stole the recipe for her tanning line.

In a lawsuit filed against her this week, Scientist Jennifer Sunday takes aim at Lindsay and her business partner, Lorit Simon, for breach of contract. The lawsuit alleges Simon and Sunday were negotiating over samples of the product, but couldn't agree on a final price.

"The next thing we know, Lorit Simon and Lindsay Lohan are partnering, and Ms. Lohan is taking credit for developing this formula, which she indeed had no role in," Sunday's lawyer tells the 'St. Petersburg Times'.

"No formula was stolen for Sevin Nyne!," insists Lohan. "It's a woman looking for a payday. That's it!"
