A fast food chain had approached actress Lindsay Lohan regarding an advertisement in which she would wear a Spicy Chicken Fries box and smoke a chicken fly as if it were a cigarette. But she refused the offer because it poked fun at her troubled past.

The Parent Trap actress declined to do the commercial for the famous fast food chain Burger Kings.
"We were gob-smacked. It was making fun of her issues," a website quoted an insider as saying.
Another source said it was actually Burger King which eventually rejected the star because she and her managers at Untitled Talent wanted many changes to the planned clip.
"She wanted creative control. (A Burger King representative said she could) Forget about it," said the source.
Meanwhile, the fiery-haired beauty — who completed seven years of probation earlier this year — is currently living in London where she's writing a book and working on her Lavish Alice fashion line, even though she's 'broke'.
"She's broke, sleeping at different guys' apartments, but she thinks she's Elizabeth Taylor," a source said.
