Despite showing up to set and seemingly doing her job to the best of her ability, LiLo has still brought the scrutiny of several unions down on her current project, "Liz & Dick," a Lifetime biopic about Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton.

Earlier this month, Lohan crashed her Porsche into a truck after an alleged long day of filming. Then, last week, she was found passed out in her hotel room -- although later reports claimed she was just asleep, with a touch of exhaustion and dehydration.

In addition to Lohan's mishaps, two "Liz & Dick" crew members were reportedly take to the hospital for exhaustion. In response, IATSE and SAG-AFTRA are looking into the production to make sure that it's compliant with industry regulations in terms of how much cast and crew members are being asked to work.

Meanwhile, above is a look at LiLo's life while filming the movie, as told through a series of pictures.
