VENICE, Italy — Lindsay Lohan says she skipped the Venice Film Festival to `'focus on my health and well-being."

Lohan wrote on her website Saturday that she never confirmed she would be in Venice to promote Paul Schrader's `'The Canyons." She said would have enjoyed being at the festival, `'but my focus is on my health and well-being. Plain and simple, it is of the utmost importance."

Schrader declared himself `'a free man" after she failed to show Friday, saying `for the last 16 months I've been hostage, by own choosing, to a very talented but unpredictable actress. `' He said she had confirmed she would be there.

Lohan, 27, has been plagued by legal and substance abuse problems in recent years. She completed her latest court-ordered stay in rehab in July.
