Falling for Christmas will be released on Netflix later this year. 

Lindsay, who was once one of the highest paid young actresses in Hollywood, appears to be mounting a career comeback.

Last month, she appeared in a Super Bowl ad for the fitness center chain Planet Fitness.

The commercial, which also starred Dennis Rodman, William Shatner and Danny Trejo, aired on February 13 during Super Bowl LVI.

The ad poked fun at the actress’s wild-child past as a tabloid fixture and emphasizes how she has changed since embracing a healthier lifestyle, which includes working out at Planet Fitness.     

Lindsay told Extra, ‘It’s more fun when you’re doing the Super Bowl because it’s so secretive, so you feel like you’re doing something wrong, but so good!’

‘It was the first thing that I’ve shot in L.A. in years,’ she continued. ‘That was exciting, too, just to be back and have that energy of being at a studio, doing a commercial, setting up, getting to set. It was really exciting and really fun.’

She was also featured in several episodes of the Netflix/Sky One black comedy series Sick Note, which starred Rupert Grint and Nick Frost.
