The film, which has yet to land a distributor, is supposed to help re-launch Lindsay’s stalled film career. It’s release comes just as the former child star is being released from court-ordered rehab.
Lohan, who is reportedly determined to clean up her act, will appear topless in a movie for the first time in her career, although she posed topless for Playboy last year.
“The Canyons,” about the seamy underside of Hollywood, has been generally trashed by critics. But at least one, Variety’s Scott Foundas gave Lohan a thumb’s up for her performance. She’s no Kate Winslet in “The Reader.”
In video clips that have leaked online as well as screen captures, the “Mean Girls” star unabashedly takes a shower naked, and strips for what looks like three-way sex.
Getting through the scenes was reportedly a trip for the film crew.
Lohan was said to have demanded that everyone in the room strip down to their boxers to make her feel more comfortable. “When Julia Roberts does topless scenes, she makes the whole crew shoot in their boxers! I want that!” Lindsay said, according to co-star James Deen.
Schrader reportedly refused to put his crew on the spot, but supposedly stripped down to his socks to appease his flighty star.
For the record, Roberts has never done a nude scene. “I wouldn’t do nudity in films. To act with my clothes on is a performance. To act with my clothes off is a documentary,” she said in a 2009 interview.
