As if it weren't bad enough that Lindsay Lohan's behavior on the set of her latest flick, Bret Easton Ellis' The Canyons, seems to be the nail in the coffin of any semblance of a film career the troubled actress had left, now, her co-star, porn star James Deen, is talking about what a chicken she was while shooting a four-way sex scene.
We already heard that she totally freaked out and locked herself in a closet while they were trying to film the notorious scene, but there's even more to the story, courtesy of Deen in a new story on The Daily Beast ...
The porn star explained that while everyone else on set, and their co-stars in the sex scene were comfortable with what was going on, LiLo "needs to be the star" and acted out:
She’s never done a sex scene, so to her, this was a big deal that she was showing her boobs and simulating sex, [but] she felt like she needed to throw some drama in there and bring attention back to her.
But apparently, this wasn't necessarily diva behavior. Deen says she was "really uncomfortable." Yep, believe it or not, the actress who has posed in Playboy and was going to play Deep Throat star Linda Lovelace was totally freaked out by shooting this steamy scene. "To her, it was something different [than Playboy]," Deen says. She even requested that the crew strip down to make her more comfortable! Wow. (Oh, and supposedly, the director did, but no one else would ...)
But Deen doesn't seem like he was totally turned off by her behavior. In fact, he seems to sympathize. He said:
She’s a child star who’s been living in this fame world being chased by paparazzi ... She’s been conditioned to say what she needs and then someone will bring it to her, so I can see why people would consider her to be a train wreck or a bitch or whatever, but her intentions are fine.
That "child star" point totally hits it on the head and explains exactly why she would have flipped out when she was faced with doing a scene like this. Sadly, LiLo strikes me as many other former child stars, who in many ways is stunted ... frozen in time or perhaps unable to mature past the age she reached the peak of her fame. So while she may have thought she was ready for a four-way sex scene on camera, maybe she wasn't. And really, what's wrong with that?
Are you surprised by LiLo's reaction to filming this sex scene?
