“My doctor actually told me that sex doesn’t count as cardio and working out. And then the next time I saw him he had seen one of my scenes, and he told me, “You are OK.” In the film world, people don’t realize you’re not just having sex. Sex on camera can be anywhere from 20 minutes to four hours. It all depends on the production and type of scene. It’s also not just standard sex, like, “Let’s just make each other’s bodies feel good.” It’s physical, entertainment-style sex. So while you might ride a motorcycle in a certain way when you’re driving to work, if you’re a stunt person and you’re going to ride that motorcycle on camera, you’re going to do a totally different style of motorcycle riding. My whole point is that because of the on-camera sex, I have this insane style of stunt sex. It actually is very physically strenuous. It’s a good workout. All the positioning and weird things. My doctor said so! Doctor-approved workout.”
And here I was thinking that sex, my preferred (and, um, only) form of workout, was a super-sneaky way to get some serious cardio. Not true. Like, at all. Damn you, James Deen’s doctor, damn you! [GQ]
Farrah Abraham is still taking this sex tape porno to the next level. She really does seem desperate for some attention. Either that, or she is really desperate for a big, fat paycheck! Or quite possibly BOTH.
And poor James Deen — all he did was get a call and sign up for some porn work for the day and get a paycheck. It was all in a day’s work for James and he basically said that when he was asked about it. Now, she’s pretty much miffed that he would have the gall to come out and tell the truth.
Now that the cat is officially out of the bag, she’s all angry at him for telling the truth. When stopped by a TMZ videographer, apparently she didn’t have anything nice to say about the porn actor. Read more on Celeb Dirty Laundry…
I’ve been really intrigued by James Deen ever since that New York Times Magazine profile about “The Canyons” came out. I loved the detail that he is the Jewish son of rocket scientists. Stephen Roderick painted Deen as this sensitive loner genius who just so happens to have applied his brilliance to the porn world. After seeing a new episode Woodrocket.com’s web series “Memes I’d Like To F**k,” I’m convinced that he really is one.. In the episode, Deen, dressed as the IKEA monkey, stares out a window. That’s it. Brilliant. [Laughing Squid]
“She has a unique way of communicating. She’s a child star who’s been living in this fame world being chased by paparazzi. I tried to consider that in every interaction with her, so when she speaks, what could be construed as an insult by some was not necessarily intended to be an insult. It was just her communicating her interpretation of the scene … People treat actors like these fragile, delicate creatures, and you’ve got to remember that for the past 10 years, Lindsay could not go to Starbucks. She was raised in the Hollywood system, so she’s used to a certain level of treatment. Instead of saying, ‘Excuse me, could you please pass me the water?’ She’s used to saying, ‘I need water,’ and then someone just giving her water. She’s been conditioned to say what she needs and then someone will bring it to her, so I can see why people would consider her to be a train wreck or a bitch or whatever, but her intentions are fine.”
–James Deen responds to the controversial New York Times profile about the making of “The Canyons.” I think he’s very gracious and diplomatic in his assessment of Lindsay Lohan. This idea of the “Hollywood system” creating a condition of “celebrity” is interesting, but it seems like a cop out for bad behavior. If you haven’t read the piece yet, I highly recommend it. It reads like fiction — but it’s true! [The Daily Beast]
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 »
”[P]aparazzi can’t get a picture of me doing anything interesting. I’m untouchable. Here’s James Deen peeing in public, making out with a girl in a bar, drunk and puking. Yeah, I’m a porn star. What do you expect?”
– James Deen talks to Interview about his non-pornography role in “The Canyons” with Lindsay Lohan. When asked about paparazzi hounding the set, he admits they “sometimes haven’t been respectful” to Lindsay. Glad to hear he’s not being hounded by paparazzi … but doesn’t Lindsay do all those things, too? [Interview Magazine] [Photo: Interview]
“You’re dealing with a small community of people that is engaging in sexual activity with one another, and we’re all regularly tested, in addition to the fact that we have a database that has everybody’s tests on file to verify this for whoever it is that’s showing up with the test results is actually tested and those test results are accurate. So it eliminates the faking of tests or any sort of things like that … You also have to remember, adult films are not real sex. It’s entertainment. So just because we’re engaging in physical sex doesn’t mean it is normal sex. We’re going to be—to be crude, you have women being pounded by large or above-average-size penises for a nonstandard amount of time. For hours. From anywhere from 30 minutes to up to three hours or more. So now you add latex into that, the ultimate probability of friction burn, vaginal and anal tears, and things like that. And when you’re dealing with something with an 87 percent safety rate, you’re going to now have a higher probability of transmitting any sort of STD or STI because you now have more issues in addition to that … if I’m going to go do a condom-only scene, and my fellow performer is not tested. I’m not going to do the scene. I trust a test from somebody that is being regularly tested on a regular basis that is in my industry. I trust that test more than I trust a condom.”
– James Deen speaks out against California’s recently passed Measure B, which will require all adult industry performers to wear condoms while filming. You should read Deen’s entire interview with The Daily Beast to get a fuller understanding of the issue, but his explanation makes a lot of sense. He’s concerned that the condom measure will replace the safety testing measures in place for the porn industry. I can understand how this could be scary for the adult film industry. [The Daily Beast]
