Lindsay Lohan, who stars as an unnaturally lucky girl in "Just My Luck," hit a spot of bad luck before a recent press conference to promote her latest film.
"I was coming out of the shower yesterday morning and I slipped," says the actress, who's sporting a wrapped ankle and foot, a navy Chanel dress, black leggings and flats. "I have a hairline fracture in my foot. I can't wear heels though. That's the bad thing."
Lohan isn't letting a little injury slow her down though. Even when she sprained her ankle on the set of "Just My Luck," the starlet was fanatic about working out -- doing crunches, leg lifts and other exercises -- whenever the mood struck.
"This is one thing that I always do and people think I'm a little crazy. I just drop and do pushups," she confesses. "I'm always doing pushups. My friends can vouch for me because they said I had really skinny arms. And my brother used to make fun of me because I couldn't do pushups."
Lohan insists that she doesn't cheat and resort to doing girly pushups. Challenged by the gathered journalists and her co-stars -- Samaire Armstrong, Bree Turner and Chris Pine -- she says she can do "As many as I can. I'm pretty good. I can do a good amount."
And while she's not about to pull a one-armed Jack Palance-style pushup, she gives everyone a demonstration at the end of the interview. Right there in the Four Seasons Hotel Beverly Hills, Lohan drops to the ground, crosses the injured ankle over the healthy one, and commences proving her pushup prowess while everyone counts each rep aloud.
And what's the magic number after this public display of teenage might?
