Lindsay Lohan wants the world to know that she loves her costars, Italy, and, more than anything, is focused on her recovery.
As the rest of her costars hit the red carpet at the Venice Film Festival to promote “The Canyons,” Lindsay was notably not among them. And although she wasn’t there in person, the actress wants the world to know that she wishes she could have been.
In an open letter posted to her personal website, Lohan reminds readers that she is still focusing on her health and well being. Read more on Celebuzz…
Paul Schrader, director of the current lolzfest “The Canyons”, not only took a huge chance on casting Lindsay Lohan but is now actually defending her for not bothering to show up to the film’s premiere. Dude, no. She’s clearly just not that into you. And by “you” I mean the film you made, and also, she’s completely ungrateful and probably thinks she doesn’t owe you anything.

On his website, James Deen Blog: Boobs, Buttholes, Burritos (fantastic name, by the way, also NSFW), the multi-talented porn star took a moment to pen an honest review of his performance in “The Canyons” after attending the premiere. Well, kind of. He had planned to watch the movie once, surrounded by a crowd, and then, never watch it again. But after 30 seconds, he ran to the back of the theater to hang out with director Paul Schrader and producer Braxton Pope. From the glimpses he caught (because it was awkward to watch himself), he managed to eek out a critique on his performance. Keep reading »
Lindsay Lohan and James Deen’s much anticipated Bret Easton Ellis-penned “The Canyons” finally opens in theaters — and is available on iTunes — today! Lohan goes topless and participates in an orgy for the film — check out the NSFW version of the photo above here — which is surely enough to get some people’s pervy behinds to the theater, but is it really worth seeing? The critics are mixed in their reactions, to put it mildly. Let’s review the reviews, shall we? And then share whether the film is on your must see list in the comments! Keep reading »
We all agree that “The Canyons” is going to be just the worst, right? I mean, Lindsay Lohan can’t act anymore (or communicate with regular humans), James Deen acts in questionable pornographic films with “Teen Mom”s but gives us little reason to be interested in him as an artiste, and Bret Easton Ellis, who wrote the script, is a pompous windbag who offends gays every time he tweets. Every single teaser trailer that has been released has been more faux-hipster-artsy than the last. Finally they’ve released the official, full-length trailer and by God, does it confirm every expectation we have about this film. And yet … I know I’ll end up seeing “The Canyons.” But I don’t know why.
“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]
Last week, the internet, nay, the world was riveted by The New York Times Magazine‘s wildly entertaining and totally compelling behind-the-scenes look at Lindsay Lohan’s upcoming film “The Canyons.” Penned by Bret Easton Ellis and also starring porn star James Deen, “The Canyons” is clearly destined to be this year’s “Showgirls.” And now we have a clip to whet our appetites! In this scene — which I’ve decided to call “Oh No, Lindsay Lohan Can’t Find Her Cell Phone!” — Lindsay’s character Tara wakes up to find that her iPhone is missing and sets about finding it without waking up her sleeping, rage-filled boyfriend. Will she succeed?! Find out. (FYI, video is NSFW because of language.)
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]
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]
