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.

Lindsay is accurate in what she said, things like this DO happen on movie sets all the time, its run of the mill type of stuff. Why the producer/director agreed to have a reporter on set at all times was madness, that has NEVER happened before on any movie, directors usually shudder at the thought of reporters hanging around.


I believe Lindsay Lohan when she said she didn't drink and drive, since her DUI in 2007 and although she was banned from driving for a couple of years, when she has been at the wheel she has NEVER been under the influence when she was stopped., she learned her lesson about that at least.

He has a point. The media can spin Lindsay however they want and make her seem a lot more trouble than she is. He seems to have liked what she did there. It must be hard to memorize whole scripts, so how out of it can you be if you can do that?


I thought she was good in the two movies that I ever saw her in. If someone is a bad actress though, are they a bad person even? You probably need a dramatic personality to be an intersting actor. Otherwise, you are just dead and flat and don't convey emotions.


Also, stay away from Lumineers.

This first hand account of "the making of" The Canyons offered the reader a very disturbing look into the life of Lindsay Lohan.

Rodrick captured every nuance of Lindsay, that, till now, had only been provided by "unknown" sources on gossip sites.

"I never turned down anything and never argued with any producer or director," said the late actor Charles Durning Durning had a 50 year acting career and survived WW II and Lindsay thinks she is above Scary movie, Charlie Sheen, and a 100 dollar a day movie with a porn star. I am posting this every time there is a Bitcho story.

That kind of stuff goes on all the time? I can see a director putting up with the eccentricities of a powerhouse, but b-listers are a dime a dozen, these has-been fools kept her because they were desperate.

Lindsay still thinks she's real cheese, she's just velveeta.

I do believe this article was written to provide the publicity Pope and Schrader need to get a distributor for this little indie, and by surreptitiously throwing their "Star" under the bus, they may get what they were after.

Can you imagine if us normal folks pulled this crap at our jobs? Showed up hours late, argued with bosses, pounded and screamed on their doors....how long do you think we would last at our jobs? Why is she allowed to get away with this kind of behavior? So many Hollywood actors act like professionals. You should try it some time, Lindsay..

Just for the record, the NYT did NOT say Lindsay was drunk, or that she was drunk driving, but sites like TMZ will spin, spin and spin again.

Daniel Day Lewis is famous for getting into his roles and becoming that character. In Lincoln he had the cast and crew refer to him as Mr President. He is now nominated for another Academy award. Sally Field also won and nominated again started out as the Flying Nun and Gidget and made her mark in a TV mini series Sybill-back then TV was still looked down on. The point is Bitcho is not worthy of even B-list actors, she should be grateful for ever job she can get. She appreciates NOTHING. And it is not as though she is still a good actress-by judging the past couple of years-she sucks-I see better acting from community theater productions.

I Love the fact that as horrible a picture that article paints of Lindsay Lohan ....the one fact they have latched onto is .....she was not driving drunk and she was not drinking....the word drinking and drunk trips their triggers more then anything...like light a torch to dry tinder...they go up in flames every time......Very sensitive spot........which usual means its true.....
