Lohan had arrived on set late several times and had called in sick--despite being photographed partying the night before.
Fonda tells the Chicago Sun-Times newspaper, "I think she's a fantastic actress and I think she's just brilliant in this movie. She moved me to pieces. Basically, she's a nice girl, but she was late a few times and I yelled at her.
"One day I had had enough and went to her makeup trailer and said, 'Come on, Lindsay! Everybody's waiting for you!' And I just turned on my heel and walked out.
"Afterwards, they told me she turned to her makeup person and said, 'Barbarella just yelled at me!'"
Last month, Lohan admitted she had been "a bit irresponsible" while making the movie but claimed this was because she was experiencing problems with her then-boyfriend Harry Morton.
