She was hospitalised for "walking pneumonia" (or, as most would call it, a chest infection. If you had pneumonia you'd know all about it), but she's alright now, you guys.

The Liz & Dicker actress sought medical assistance on Sunday from the Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York City after complaining she had been suffering from pneumonia for some time, but says she is now on the mend after being treated with ye ole trusty antibiotics.

She told the New York Post yesterday (24.09.12): "I got sick again, but I am all right."

Despite her walking plague, Lindsay has been working on Scary Movie 5 and super enjoyed the experience as she got "a lot of great advice" from her co-star Charlie Sheen.

Speaking at the Size Matters party in Central Park on Saturday evening, she said: "I have been really sick with pneumonia but I have been working. I have been shooting Scary Movie with Charlie Sheen. He was really great to work with and gave me some good advice about surviving in this business."

Rule number 1: If you've got a chest infection, neck some antibiotics fairly sharpish. Rule number 2.:Stop driving. Rule number 3: Don't listen to Charlie Sheen about surviving anything, he has the constitution of a severely 'roided ox. 

It had previously been reported that Lindsay - who was hospitalised with "exhaustion and dehydration" in June when filming Liz & Dick (they had to kick her hotel door in 'cause she just "couldn't wake up") - had used her complaint of suffering from "walking pneumonia" to get out of filming Scary Movie 5.

A source said: "Lindsay missed every meeting she had for the film, including script reads and wardrobe meetings. Then she missed her flight to Atlanta to shoot the movie. The producers had been getting signs Friday that she was a mess, and would not be fit to work. She is under contract - so to get out of it, she had to prove that she was sick. She tried to prove she has walking pneumonia."

Lindsay eventually filmed the role. Doesn't she look happy.
