Behind The Scenes Of A Lindsay Lohan Movie

If you pay any attention to celeb gossip, you know that Lindsay Lohan, while marginally talented, is not getting much work these days, thanks, in part, to the high cost of insurance big movie studios must pay when hiring her for their films. Her history of arrest, drug issues, hospitalization, general tardiness and disrespect for everyone else she makes a movie with means she’s a pricey casting decision. But small budget films don’t bother with insurance, which is part of the reason why the makers of the upcoming “The Canyons” was willing to take the risk of hiring Lohan to play opposite porn star James Deen in the Bret Easton Ellis-penned film. But that doesn’t mean Lohan was on good behavior.  Keep reading »

“Kathryn Bigelow would be considered a mildly interesting filmmaker if she was a man but since she’s a very hot woman she’s really overrated.”

That’s a tweet from Bret Easton Ellis, the author of American Psycho and other books and movies. I guess someone is a little butthurt because Kathryn Bigelow won an Oscar for Best Director (making her the first-ever woman to do so) while Ellis’ latest film project stars a can-barely-walk-straight Lindsay Lohan?

Straight from the set of Bret Easton Ellis’ sex thriller, here’s a first look at “The Canyons,” starring porn star James Deen and Lindsay Lohan. Not to distract from the subject at hand, but I am far more interested in the bearded dude in the foreground. Who is he? A camera guy? A grip? A PA? He’s hot. [Facebook]

I get such a kick out of Karl. After casually poking fun at, like, everyone who isn’t Karl Lagerfeld last week, the kaiser is back and biting with a first-person Harper’s Bazaar feature that documents his life in 24 hours. If you’re sensitive to the shameless bourgeois, skip it, because I swear to god this article reads like a Bret Easton Ellis novel… and hilariously, awesomely so. However alienating he may be, Karl and I do have one thing in common: we refer to our cats as being “very refined.” After the jump, check out some of my favorite quotes from the feature.

Where Is Patrick Bateman Now? Oh, Having A Threesome With Rihanna And Chris Brown

Bret Easton Ellis, author of American Psycho, was very busy this weekend … thinking of ideas for a possible sequel to the book. So what is Patrick Bateman up to nowadays? Ellis took to Twitter to share his darkly frantic brainstorm. For starters, Patrick wants to have a threesome with Rihanna and Chris Brown. Disturbed? It gets so much more twisted. Hint: The Kardashian sisters, Kris Humphries, Chris Martin, Lindsay Lohan, David Beckham, Gavin Rossdale, and Katy Perry’s trainer are all involved. And lots and lots of murder. Oh, and if you didn’t figure it out from the original, Patrick Bateman is gay. Whoa. Whoa. Whoa. I’m frightened. Social networking and celebrity culture would only make Patrick more psychotic, it seems. If that’s even possible. Click through to see Ellis’ highly disturbing Patrick Batemen musings. [Buzzfeed]

Quotable: Bret Easton Ellis Isn’t Down With Female Directors

“There’s something about the medium of film itself that I think requires the male gaze. We’re watching, and we’re aroused by looking, whereas I don’t think women respond that way to films, just because of how they’re built. … Is there a reason that there isn’t a female Hitchcock or a female Scorsese or a female Spielberg? I don’t know. I think it’s a medium that really is built for the male gaze and for a male sensibility. I mean, the best art is made under not an indifference to, but a neutrality [toward] the kind of emotionalism that I think can be a trap for women directors.”

—Bret Easton Ellis, the author of American Psycho, losing a little respect as he argues that women don’t make great film directors. Hey, you did get the memo about Kathryn Bigelow, right? [Newser] Keep reading »
