Lindsay Lohan made an appearance on "The Late Show With David Letterman" Tuesday (April 09), where she begrudgingly answered questions about her upcoming rehab and recent legal woes. The actress kept pace, however, poking fun at herself and putting Letterman on the spot for grilling her over her personal life. Lohan was on the show to promote her role in the upcoming film, "Scary Movie 5." It was a night of movie premieres in Los Angeles on Tuesday. Ben Affleck, Rachel McAdams and Olga Kurylenko hit the red carpet for their film, "To the Wonder." The Terrence Malick film is a romantic drama about men and women grappling with love and its many phases and seasons. Then across town, Harrison Ford promoted his new film, "42," a biopic about baseball legend Jackie Robinson. Harrison plays Branch Rickey, the man who signed Jackie Robinson to the Brooklyn Dodgers, breaking Major League Baseball's infamous color line. Both films open on April 12. Finally, the death of former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher has sent a 74-year-old song, "Ding Dong! The Witch Is Dead", flying into the UK charts. The song from the 1939 film "The Wizard of Oz" was top of Amazon's most downloaded chart on Wednesday (April 10) following a social media campaign promoted the upbeat track as a way for detractors to "celebrate" the death of Britain's most divisive postwar leader.
