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 what else is their to say. We all know you are a liar and a thief a drunk a drug addict. so know that the public knows what you are it really does not matter what you think is the truth because everyone already knows. So deny all you want that you are sober. It will only hurt you, but great comedy for all of us.

Lindsay was the only one that could take on Dean's peen. That's why the movie's name was The Canyons. Lindsay mouth is like a canyon and take on anything they throw at her, no matter how long.

That Producer is not helping Lindsay at al by making excuses for her, That is what people have done all her life and that is why she will never be accountable for her actions, She needs someone to give her tough love and really start telling the truth about her, If this Producer would have said yes she is nightmare and really said the truth maybe Lindsay would really wake up and think oh my God no one is going to hire me anymore but if she knows Producers will defend her she thinks she is fine and she did nothing wrong which she just claimed,. NO not everyone argues with the people that hire them, they may have discussions but most people are respectful to their bosses.

Rodrick's first hand account states that Lindsay and Gavin were both "drinking," afterwhich, Lindsay was "witnessed" getting behind the wheel of her car and leaving the set.

He may not have stated she was drunk, but clearly highlights the fact that she drove after having imbided.

I'm not sure what to say here... this movie is, if I understand correctly, a soft-core porn movie. So am I supposed to praise her because despite the difficulties working with her, the director would still be willing to do another soft-core porn movie with her? Uhm... good job, Lindsay. I guess.
