Lindsay Lohan

'Canyons' Article Was

Pretty Accurate

EXCLUSIVE

0110-tmz-lindsay-lohan-canyons

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.

The really sad part about Lindsay is that when she does eventually overdose from drugs/alcohol, not only will no one be surprised, but no one will be sad. No one was surprised Whitney Houston died, but people were sad because she had a true talent and could be a decent human being.

Lindsay doesn't have either of these things going for her.

This whole story seems like a pathetic attempt to bring publicity to the Canyons. The rogue writer who was on the set tells all to a New York newspaper, Lindsay admits its all true except the drunk driving part, the pathetic Braxton Pope calls media outlets to tell them he would work with her again. Please, judge, put this woman in jail so we don't have to hear about her for awhile.

Well maybe they will make money off the stright to DVD. I don't see how this will make it to the theaters. Who the hell would ever pay 10-12 bucks to see Lohan in anything.


Hell, even Sundance turned this garbarge down.


Lohan good luck in finding anyone who will hire you for a legit role. You burned everybody from SNL to SM5.


Her acting sucks, she's no draw, so much more liability than an assit. Producers and directors semi-say ok things just to try and salvage the movie.


The truth is nobody likes her, can't stand working with her. She keeps on prooving why that is. Her own doing.

2 other things I forgot in my previous post. 1. POS MONSTER MOMMY having to be removed from the screening because she was "upset" that the camera lingered MORE on Deen and not on her cash cow Borderline Crackie-FVCKING PRICELESS!!! What's to be SO upset about? It is,afterall, a porn movie written and directed by men for a targeted audience of mostly men who want to see women getting penetrated with d.i.c.k. Deen is the d.i.ck , so he should have more camera time. If Borderline Crackie wanted more camera time, she should have strapped on one of SamRo's old dil.dos and improvised additional scenes for the director. Obviously, he's desperate for work-since he signed on for this tragic fiasco-he certainly would have used the footage. Maybe she thought of doing just that- but the dil.dos were locked up in her unpaid storage unit(along with Liz's rocker and MDD's furniture)-or more than likely she didn't, because she lacks the talent, forethought and depth required for such a performance. 2. Yes she did admit that the NY Times story was accurate-of course she did, this is what's called REAL journalism that has collaborating proof-so she can't say it's a lie. But she DISMISSES her borderline crackie antics by stating this is just normal everyday shyt on a movie set. So SHE STILL IS NOT TAKING RESPONSIBILITY FOR HER BORDERLINE CRACKIE BEHAVIOR. ABSOLUTELY NOTHING has changed- except Judgement day is now just mere days away. I bet she'll give the Judge a better performance-with more emotion and tears- than this porn "movie." Her "acting" has always been better before the Courts and if a director could edit ALL of the Borderline Crackie's concrete carpet appearances into a single short film, Sundance would probably accept it into festival. Ironic, non?

How come the author says they noticed Lindsay and her assistant had been drinking AFTER the porn scene?


If she was so scared, wouldn't she have been drinking before or during the scene?


And why was Gavin drinking too? Did he have to get naked for the cameras?

-
Not that irresponsible? NOT THAT IRRESPONSIBLE!?!?!?
-
She DOES know she's talking about herself, right?
-
And I Love how EVERYTHING in the article was true - oh EXCEPT the drinking & driving part. That part MUST be a lie! lol
-
You're a JOKE Lohan. Y'know, I'm starting to hope the judge lets you off with another warning and no jail time. At the rate you're going, you'll be dead before 2013 is out - and good riddance!!!!

C'mon, Lohan has no choice but to own up to this. This artical was just as scathing as her Liz and Dick reviews.


Everybody from SNL, Glee, Liz and Dick, Canyons, SM5 all said she's horrible and a complete nightmare to work with.


Lohan doesn't have an ounce of talent to come even close to pulling her gods gift to hollywood crap. She's no actress. She's a washed up tabloid joke at the ripe old age of pushing 27.

If Lindsay is good actress, she should act like she's not tweeking balls when she's sitting next to Shawn in the courtroom.

Why ANY producer/director/other actors/actresses would ever want to work with this un-insurable nightmare is completely beyond me!
-
Any that DO still want to work with her, for ANYTHING, should be checked out by a psychiatrist.

Does anyone actually buy that crap about the director already having approached her about another project?

If it's true, that that idiot is a masochist! Just read the NY Times article.....
