The man who wrote article is Stephen Rodrick — who says he was allowed to chronicle the project from start to finish.
According to Rodrick, Lohan was a mess who was initially fired after blowing off two days of filming. Rodrick says Lohan showed up to the director’s hotel room, pounded on the door while hysterically crying and begging for her job back.
Rodrick says Lohan stayed in the hallway sobbing for 90 minutes before finally leaving.
Eventually, she was hired back to the production — and things got worse … with Lohan constantly criticizing producers and her co-stars.
But the most concerning part, Rodrick says Lohan had been drinking before a scene in which she would be simulating a 4-way sex scene with some real-life porn actors.
After the scene, producers offered Lindsay a hired car to drive her home … but she refused … and drove off in her Porsche. Rodrick says producers “all hoped they would still have a lead actress in the morning.”
In the article, Rodrick says Lohan also freaked out before a sex scene in which she was supposed to get naked … and locked herself in a closet. Rodrick says the director had to beg her to do the scene … and eventually stripped naked himself to show her it was no big deal.
The gimmick worked — Lohan eventually dropped her robe and shot a 14-minute sex scene.
According to the report, Lindsay once partied with Lady Gaga until 5:30 AM … when she had a 6:00 AM call time. She eventually showed up to the set at 9 AM, but left soon after a doctor said she was too sick to film.
Surprising? Oh gosh, no. No, not at all, actually. I think that this is just basic Lindsay behavior, and we were only lucky enough to hear about it first-hand because Lindsay and the production team at ‘The Canyons’ had the bad sense to OK an ongoing documentary of what it’s like when you hire Lindsay Lohan for your movie.
What’s more, though, is that Lindsay herself claims that the allegations are all true—except for that pesky drinking and driving bit, because duh, Lindsay would never drink (because first of all, she doesn’t drink) and then go ahead and operate a vehicle, because driving is serious business, and it’s a privilege, and all sorts of bad things can happen when you get behind the wheel of a car intoxicated. No, Lindsay’s claiming to friends that, while the rest of the article from the New York Times was pretty much spot-on, the bit about drinking and driving was completely wrong, because she’d just never, and I quote, be “that stupid and irresponsible.” Got it.
You can read the full write-up at the New York Times, here, and I recommend it, because wow. Lindsay Lohan sure is a firecracker. … Or wait, is it firecrotch? I just don’t even know anymore.
