There have been claims that Lindsay Lohan is hard to work with, and the New York Times even wrote an expose, published Thursday, on her work on "The Canyons." It was pretty horrific. Now, we've even got audio proof of her misadventures on the set, with a clip unearthed Friday by TMZ (embedded).
The audio seems to prove what the Times piece asserted. Lohan was a train wreck on the film. As the Times said, she was eventually fired after missing two consecutive days, but begged to be rehired after pounded on hotel room doors at the Orlando Hotel in Beverly Hills until she found Paul Schrader.
The audio was, sources said, recorded on the third day of production, when Lohan was working on a scene with the male lead in the film, James Deen (once, perhaps future porn star).
On the audio, the director can be heard instructing Lohan and Deen to walk through a scene and "take it all the way to the kiss ... 'cause that's certainly going to be important." There are some expletives early on the tape, but that's not the major hit.
When the director yells "Action," something goes wrong, it's unclear what, and a clearly annoyed Lohan goes wild, saying: "No, can you do it ... Please James, say your line as you're walking over ... cause we're doing rehearsal ... do your f*cking job."
Deen tries to respond to Lohan, but she cuts him off ... saying, "I didn't say anything, I said just walk over ... and do your f**king job."
At that point, the director says, "Alright, I've had it. I'm tired."
Lohan responds, "So have I."
As the Times reported, Lohan was a nightmare both on and off the set. She was constantly late to set, missed days, fought with producers and co-stars and drank on the set. At one point in the Times article she drank on set and was offered a ride home.
But she refused, jumped into her Porsche and headed down the dark, narrow road toward the P.C.H. They all hoped they would still have a lead actress in the morning.
This isn't the first time in recent memory that Lohan was accused of being an on-set mess. It was reported that she trashed her trailer during her filming on "Scary Movie 5," although she denied that, just as she denied drinking during production of "The Canyons."
