Michael Lohan refused to comment on his recent reunion with daughter Lindsay after three years of estrangement, so Usmagazine.com asked body language expert Dr. Lillian Glass to analyze the pair’s interaction as they reconnected on the grounds of the Cirque Lodge rehabilitation center in rural Utah.
According to Dr. Glass, the Lohans started by taking it slow.
“At first she’s kind of leery and it shows,” she says. “She’s very stiff and her shoulders are rounded, her head is down. She’s unsure of herself."
Dr. Glass points out that the 21-year-old actress appears very childlike in the top photo taken on September 6. “She’s kind of regressed into that little girl instead of all that bravado,” she says. “He’s reaching out to her. She’s going to wait and see what he has to say.”
Well, apparently a lot can happen in three days. By September 9, the father and daughter appeared to be on better terms.
“She’s got her arms around him, and she’s holding the flower kind of like it’s a peace offering. I think they’re totally bonded,” says Dr. Glass.
“They’ve totally thrown all their past and all the hatred behind them and both made amends with each other.”
She added: “This is the start of a new life for both of them.”
