Lindsay Lohan, Jay Thomas

FAME, Tom Estey Publicity

Two thumbs up for Lindsay Lohan!

Jay Thomas, one of LiLo's costars in the recently wrapped Labor Pains, tells me that the 22-year-old comeback starlet couldn't have been any better to work with.

"I'm just guessing, but someone must have said to her, 'You better get your act together or else,' " says Thomas.

"She was perfect. And she's a really good actress. I'm not just saying that because of the movie, but she really happens to be talented, and it looks like she's OK now."

The paparazzi, on the other hand, were not OK.

"Her manager would go out to the paparazzi," Thomas remembers. "It was like the Balkan Wars. It was the Serbs and the Bosnians, and every now and then, they would meet under the white flag. And the manager would say, 'OK, We're going to tell you when she's going to come out, but only take pictures while she walks across the street, and don't take a picture of her when she's smoking.' "

No surprise, but the overzealous shutterbugs took plenty of shots of Lohan puffin' away.

Thomas laughs that Lohan wasn't the only one getting most of the attention on set. "Lindsay's walking around holding hands with the girlfriend [Samantha Ronson], and a friend of mine comes up to me and says, 'You know, it's gonna be my 50th birthday in a month. Could you see if you could book her girlfriend to deejay at my party?' " Thomas says. "I was like, 'What are you, crazy?' To go up, in the middle of them holding hands, and say, 'What would you charge?' "
