Lindsay Lohan: Being a big baby?

According to the New York Post, erstwhile actress/failed fashion designer Lindsay Lohan is so steamed about a Super Bowl ad she's prepared to go to court.

The ad in question is E-Trade's spot -- the one that featured a baby behind a computer talking to his girlfriend via Web cam. At one point, the girlfriend demands to know whether or not the main baby was partying with "that milk-a-holic Lindsay" last night. A third baby then pops into frame -- supposedly "Lindsay" -- and delivers the line "Milk-a-what?"

And, apparently the name combined with the "milk-a-holic" crack was enough to convince Lohan that the character is based on her and that, hey, she should receive some kind of financial compensation for the "use of her name and characterization." Yesterday she filed suit for $100 million in damages.

"They used the name Lindsay," Lohan's lawyer Stephanie Ovadia told the NY Post. "They're using her name as a parody of her life. Why didn't they use the name Susan? This is a subliminal message. Everybody's talking about it and saying it's Lindsay Lohan."


I mean, I dunno about you, but it would take a bit more for me to be convinced that E-Trade was trying to score off Lilo's rep as a "holic" of any kind in this ad. Now maybe if the "Lindsay" baby had been summarily arrested and found to have a pocketful of cocaine, we'd have something to talk about.
