Garrison Keillor raped Lindsay Lohan while we were making a Prairie Home Companion – the movie. Lindsay’s mother told Garrison it was okay. I found this out while she was giving Lindsay a pill. Evidently her mother thought that by pimping Lindsay out, that would get her jobs in Hollywood. That’s an antiquated notion. Many producers and directors will sleep with actresses but that’s not how actresses normally get jobs. Once you’re established, as Lindsay would have been because she did an excellent job in the film, she would have gotten more jobs, and allowing Garrison Keillor to rape her at such a young age was just meaningless. Lindsay’s mother was keeping her on drugs. After Garrison raped her, he cut her vagina and she was bleeding so badly that I wanted to call the cops and the ambulance. Lindsay’s mother stopped me because I was also going to out her has Lindsay’s pimp. Lindsay didn’t know what to do because she didn’t want to get her mother in trouble but she was in pain and very confused by what had just happened.
The producer and the other director, Robert Altman, didn’t want me to call the cops because we would’ve lost one of the major players in the film and our set. Very, very sad but true.
So I sent out for maxi pads for Lindsay, and as they say, the show must go on.
Let me tell you a little something about Garrison Keillor. He thinks he is a god. He told everyone, including Lindsay’s mother, that he could advance our careers. Garrison didn’t know who anyone in the cast was. The people in the cast of A Prairie Home Companion, which was being filmed on their soundstage, were Woody Harrelson, Tommy Lee Jones, Garrison Keillor, Kevin Kline, Lindsay Lohan, Virginia Madsen, John C. Reilly, Maya Rudolph, Meryl Streep, and Lily Tomlin. To not know who Tommy Lee Jones, Kevin Kline or Lily Tomlin are and say you’re in show business is insanity. He really had almost no idea of who Meryl Streep was except that he knew he had heard the name before.
Garrison said, “You must be 25, all wrinkled with saggy skin. I don’t like women over 20.” He said, even Meryl Streep’s daughter, was too old for him. I spent so much time yelling at Garrison that Meryl kept dragging me off trying to keep me from getting fired. I know that men who are sexually molested by their mothers are told that they are gods. There also taught not to have sex with anyone over the age of puberty, the only exception being their mothers. Garrison was also taught that women and girls should not like sex and part of his reason for being was to make sure they didn’t. This is the common profile of a pedophile. Lindsay cried and shook as she described sex with him and I kept explaining to her, she had been raped.
What Garrison does is he tells very young girls he can advance their careers and then after he defiles them in the most disgusting way then he cuts their vaginas and sends them home, and when they complain he says he’ll ruin their careers.
I’m glad he’s out of show business. He claimed he was being a good Lutheran by making sure girls become women who don’t like sex.
What I had planned to do after the show wrapped was, I was going to call the police and make a complaint. Garrison assured me no one would listen to me that, that was his town and they all knew him and went to church with him and they agreed with what he was doing.
When my memory got erased, not only did I forget doing the movie, but I forgot what happened to Lindsay.
In the script, one of the cast members of the radio show dies during the movie. Before that scene, Kevin Kline just found out that Lindsay had been raped and no one was doing anything about it. If you watch his reaction to being told about the cast member dying, you will see a very slow response time and a little bit of adlibbing because he was so worried about Lindsay. Also, in the scene where Lindsay and Meryl find out about the death, they both really cry. And then in one of the last scenes, Lindsay has to go and sit at a table with Garrison. She does an excellent acting job even though he was so disgusting she couldn’t look at him. In the very last scene when people are saying goodbye to each other on stage, Garrison Keillor just walks off.
Garrison grumbled the whole time about how rude Hollywood people are, but no one could stand to be near him or look at him because of who he was and what he did. Pedophiles will always blame others for their own disgusting behavior.
