Lindsay Lohan

'Canyons' Article Was

Pretty Accurate

Lindsay Lohan admits ... she was a bit of a pain in the ass on the set of "The Canyons" ... but she's adamant she did NOT drink and drive. 

Sources close to the actress tell TMZ ... Lohan is well aware of the article published in the New York Times chronicling the madness that went down during the production of the movie.

Lohan is telling friends ... most of the stories in the article are TRUE -- she was late a few times, she was nervous about getting naked and she argued with producers ... but LiLo says stuff like that happens all the time on movie sets, so it's no big deal.

But we're told Lindsay says the allegations that she boozed on set and got behind the wheel of a car afterward are totally bogus. She claims she's not that stupid and irresponsible.

When there WAS booze on the set, sources close to Lohan say it was provided by the director Paul Schrader -- who would often pour vodka shots for the crew at the end of a shooting day. Lindsay swears she didn't partake in the alcoholic festivities.

In the end, Lindsay says she's not mad about the article -- and still has a good relationship with everyone she worked with, including producers, co-stars and even the director -- who she claims has already approached her about a new project.

The feeling's mutual for 'Canyons' producer Braxton Pope -- who called TMZ Live yesterday, and did verbal backflips to say how "excellent" Lindsay was ... and claimed the benefits of having her in the film "far outweighed" the challenges.

"LiLo says stuff like that happens all the time on movie sets, so it's no big deal." - crazy train wreck stuff only happens on set when you hire Lindsay!

I didn't know it was normal to eat off set and have your producer pay for it on a micro budget film...

Lindsay Lohan claims that she is neither stupid or irresponsible. This may be, but she still is doing stupid, irresponsible things and is constantly in trouble because of her poor decisions.

Anyone here read "The Sun"? Lindsay's pay rate for the graphic movie "The Canyons" was only 62 a day.

She just doesn't get that there is a level of deportment that is attached to working and she doesn't have it, she's self indulgent, spoiled and self destructive, she will eventually end up in a casket while her mother continues to make excuses for the unacceptable behavior.

He's stupid for hiring her again, PERIOD. But she did admit to some things, rather than deny everything. I don't know if this is progress or just her being scared that a legitimate newspaper reported on her shana****ns. If a real newspaper such as the Times reported on her, it gives credence to all the other stuff out there about her. A tiny fraction of me hopes that it is progress, but I doubt it.

This movie the canyons is nothing but a piece of crap porn film and they can't find anyone to release it. This is a desperate attempt for publicity. I read they wanted to hire another woman for the part but she turned the part down because she didn't want to star with that dirtbag pornstar who makes violent rape movies Jamesdeen I think Lindsay was there last resort and probably the only woman they could find that would. star with these losers that's why they kept her. Who would actually pay to see this crap ?? This isn't the kind of movie to make careers its the kind that's ends them.

Stories are going around saying that Lindsay Lohan boozed on the set of her new project and then got behind the wheel. She denies the allegations and claims that she’s not irresponsible and would never do such a thing. As someone who has blogged about Lindsay on several occasions, it’s hard to believe that she is so “responsible” that she would not make the mistake of driving while intoxicated. Fortunately for her, rumors about her driving under the influence aren’t going to be enough for the state to charge her with the offense.
