Lindsay Lohan acted 'like a child' on 'Canyons' set, says co-star James Deen
January 28, 2013
Wayward Lindsay Lohan has been slated by the co-star of her new movie for her diva demands and Hollywood brat tantrums.
James Deen, 26, has made more than 4,000 porn flicks but was horrified by the behavior of LiLo in his first mainstream film, "The Canyons."
He said: “There were days when she would scream and yell and cry and refuse to come out.
“In porn I am used to working with professionals who are courteous to others. But Lindsay was like a child lashing out.”
Mean Girls star Lohan, 26, is desperate to resurrect her career after a series of scandals and a stint in jail for drink-driving.
She agreed to appear in "The Canyons," a film about a group of sexually charged youngsters in Los Angeles.
She also agreed to strip naked for the thriller’s numerous sex scenes. But when it came to filming one graphic encounter, James said Lohan fell apart.
He recalled: “As an adult film star I felt totally at home.
“I had worked with the other actress countless times and because we were relaxed Lindsay became unnerved. She started to get more and more freaked out.
“We were all standing round naked and the next thing Lindsay was screaming, ‘Put your clothes on. For the love of God put your clothes on’.
“So we all put our robes on. But then she sat on the bed topless. When I asked her why she said she was ‘allowed to’.
“With that I dropped my towel — and she stormed off set. She then refused to return until the entire crew stripped.”
James said that once Lohan had calmed down, she was a “natural”.
But James — tipped to star in the film of "Fifty Shades of Grey" — does not blame Lohan for her antics.
He said: “She is a product of the Hollywood system.
“She is so fragile you can’t help but feel for her.”
I would've assumed she was an utmost professional.
Wow. Even porn stars are more professional.
I thought this was already discussed weeks ago?

Why is it that every fucking male celeb is supposedly "tipped to star in the film "Fifty Shades of Grey"? These newspapers are so full of shit. They don't have a damn clue about anything.
Well, when you have to take a demeaning role within a movie that has a "porn star" it's lead draw, yeah, you tend to be very capricious.
For her this was a major step-down.
For him, a "launching pad" to mainstream. 8-)
This guy was totally put off because, she had to tolerate his presence.
Yeah it was "unprofessional," but not as unprofessional as trashing co-stars publicly before the premiere of the movie.... unless, this was some marketing ploy to get the movie press.
It won't work, no one will see this.
sorry, but he's wrong here. Why trash ANYTHING about your first legit movie???
Makes no sense.
Nobody's checking for either of these two bitches. I don't know why the media keeps reporting on them.
She was just putting on her usual childish crazy act. It's more a product of her huge degree of immaturity than actual insanity. She does it because she thinks it's fun and she gets away with it.
Wonder how many times she licked his butt?
The producer has encouraged the cast to plant drama because they can't afford to pay for publicity.
R7, because the movie is shit and has been rejected by both of the major film fests it was submitted to. Notice he does say, she was a natural once she calmed down. At this point, any publicity is good publicity. Since it's no good, if they hope to recoup the money, they're going to want the trainwreck audience of lookieloos.
I think "Liz & Dick" has already cornered the trainwreck lookieloo market.
“In porn I am used to working with professionals who are courteous to others."
Courteous, well-mannered porn professionals? Who knew?
R14 I doubt anyone in porn would put up with Lindsey's brand of crazy. Plus they are usually one day shoots. They would be shot and wrapped by the time Linz got up to speed on her tantrum.
This could have been a good movie. Paul Schrader is a talented guy (Taxi Driver, Affliction, Autofocus), but he's apparently an idiot. He insisted on hiring Lohan. I
Now this movie, which he put a lot of his own money into, has become a joke due to the Lohan factor. My guess is the movie they were able to make isn't even the movie they wanted to make, and every festival out there is rejecting it
