According to the now infamous behind-the-scenes feature on The Canyons that ran in the New York Times, Lindsay Lohan’s behaviour on the set was, well…kind of horrifying. Among the more devastating allegations made in the piece: Lohan would routinely show up late, lock herself in her dressing room and refuse to come out, yell at her director and co-stars, drive back to her hotel room drunk, and party all night with Lady Gaga.

Now co-star James Deen, best known for the 4000 pornographic films he’s starred in, has confirmed that Lohan wasn’t exactly the easiest person to work with. In an interview with the Sun, Deen refreshingly steered clear of the “Oh, everyone was so wonderful”-type talk that actors who are out promoting movies usually engage in. “There were days when she would scream and yell and cry and refuse to come out,” he said. “In porn I am used to working with professionals who are courteous to others. But Lindsay was like a child lashing out.”

The movie, which was budgeted at $100,000 and funded through Kickstarter, features several nude scenes, including a four-way sex scene. Given his resume, Deen was naturally more comfortable filming these scenes than Lohan. “As an adult film star I felt totally at home,” Deen said. “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.”

Deen also recounted an incident in which director Paul Schrader (Mishima: A Life in Four Chapters, Affliction) asked Lohan to take off her shoes: “It was a simple request. I am a short guy and it looked ridiculous with her towering over me in seven-inch heels. But she refused. She was crying and screaming that she was the star of the film. In the end it was decided I would wear boots to make me taller and she finally calmed down.”

No release date for The Canyons has been set. Considering that it was rejected by both the Sundance and North by Northwest film festivals, we could be waiting on that release date for awhile.
