Of Course Lindsay Lohan Was a Terror on a Movie Set
This is going to be hard for some of you to believe, but apparently Lindsay Lohan can be sort of a menace sometimes! And not even just in her personal life, no, sometimes, she's even a menace while she's working. On movies. Shocking, right? Of course it is. But we have the real story from a real person who worked with Lindsay on a real movie. And she was, like, a mess.
Here are some words from Paul Schrader, the director of "The Canyons," about what it was like to direct Lindsay. You remember "The Canyons." It's the movie Lindsay made with porn star James Deen. Yeah, you know what's up:
"Tardiness, unpredictability, tantrums, absences, neediness, psychodrama—yes, all that, but something more, that thing that keeps you watching someone on screen, that thing you can't take your eyes off of, that magic, that mystery. From a selfish point of view, from a director's point of view, that is, from my point of view, it was a treat to work with Lindsay. All the drama, the mishegas, all the stress—that means little. A director can shoot around misbehavior. He can't shoot around lack of charisma. I just wish it was easier for Lindsay."
The thing is though that all those things Paul listed, the psychodrama and all, have affected Lindsay's acting so much. She still has that charisma, of course, but she hasn't been able to use her actual skills for a while now. That's why "Liz & Dick" was ... well, that's why "Liz & Dick" was "Liz & Dick." We all love Lindsay, obviously, but man, how great would it be if she could drop all that "misbehavior"?
Oh, but hey, could someone make a movie of Lindsay making a movie? That's where the money is, friends. That's what we need to focus on.
