It's no secret that Lindsay Lohan missed the Venice Film Festival, though many expected her to appear with Canyons director Paul Schrader and costars James Deen and Easton Ellis. While the sentiment among festival goers, repeated by many gossip sites of the weekend, was that she had left them in the lurch. Many commented on her absence, wondering at her reasoning.

Lohan, however, had a very different view. She took to her website on Monday to explain the situation, stating:
"I have to clear up these reports. I was never confirmed to attend. Of course, I would have enjoyed returning to that wonderful city and being a part of this amazing event, but my focus is on my health and well-being. Plain and simple, it is of the utmost importance."

In fact, the star took off from New York for a Labor Day weekend in the Hamptons behind the wheel of a Porche Panameri on Friday afternoon; the first time the star was spotted behind the wheel since leaving rehab in August. The star's minimal makeup and naturally lose hairstyle seemed to emphasize that she was on her way to a relaxing, low-key weekend.
Director Paul Schrader and her costars didn't seem to mind Lohan's absence, even praising her work on the erotic thriller. Schrader even went as far as to compare Lindsay to renowned actress Marilyn Monroe, stating: 
"They aren't the same as actresses, they are very different. But both have had trouble separating their professional lives from their personal lives."
With her sobriety still brand-new, perhaps skipping Venice with all of its hype and parties was a good choice for Lohan.
