MTV caught up with actress Rosario Dawson who spoke about her role in Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez' Grindhouse. She spills the beans about how actress Lindsay Lohan is in the film, sort-of:

Quentin Tarantino has been known to bring out the best in his cinematic muses, who have included Uma Thurman, Pam Grier and Bridget Fonda -- but is his latest obsession with Lindsay Lohan? Well, kinda. "I play a makeup and hair artist for Lindsay Lohan -- that's pretty insane," actress Rosario Dawson revealed this week, talking about her character in Tarantino's upcoming double-feature with Robert Rodriguez, Grindhouse.

But here's the weird part: Lohan isn't actually in the movie at all. "[We] talk about her, but she's not in it," clarified Mary Elizabeth Winstead, who co-stars with Dawson in Tarantino's half of the movie. "[Dawson] plays Lindsay Lohan's makeup artist, and I play her co-star in a fictional movie." Even weirder is the fact that neither star could confirm whether Lohan even knows her name is being used in the film.

"I know [Lohan] met Quentin on a few occasions, but I don't know if he's actually told her about it," Winstead said. With or without the Mean Girls star's consent, Grindhouse will open April 6. ...

Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez are each directing a 60-minute horror tale for Grindhouse. Rodriguez's part, "Planet Terror," will be a zombie movie, while Tarantino's section, "Death Proof," will a slasher film. Faux trailers and ads will run between the two pics as an intermission.
