The Lido waterfront is in love with Lohan. The party girl and tabloid favorite has been the paparazzi's number one target of the festival so far. Photographers have chased the 20-year-old and her boyfriend Harry Morton along the glamorous beach. For the record, Lohan denied rumors that the couple are engaged.

The British press focused on the boos from some journalists at a press screening of Darren Aronofsky's The Fountain, starring his fiancee and Oscar winner Rachel Weisz.

The Briton stars alongside Hugh Jackman in a story spanning three different eras, but initial critical reaction has been poor, showing that a slot in the prestigious main competition is not always a good thing in Venice.

Still, Weisz and Aronofsky can take heart. The Da Vinci Code was loudly booed after its first screening in Cannes this year but went on to enjoy one of the biggest box office openings in history.
