She had on-set drama when she attempted to step into the serious acting leagues with Robert Altman’s “A Prairie Home Companion.” Then her toxic reputation followed her onto her next couple of attempts at comebacks in “I Know Who Killed Me” and more recently, “The Canyons,” both edgy indies that were critically lambasted and flopped at the box office; not to mention, they had the media eat up plenty of juicy filming conflicts due to her prima donna nature on each film.
