Lindsay Lohan is not pregnant.
The actress tweeted, “April Fools. Where’s everyone’s sense of humor?” minutes ago — an apparent rebuttal to a tweet last night (“It’s official. Pregnant…”), which has since been deleted. READ FULL STORY
It’s time to play everyone’s favorite parlor game: Casting the upcoming Fifty Shades of Grey movie adaptation. When EW spoke on the phone with James Deen last week, we asked The Canyons actor about rumors of possibility starring in the picture. As an adult film star, he already has quite a bit of experience (nearly 4,000 credits) with sex scenes on camera – which, to anyone who has read the book, seems to be a necessary prerequisite for the role. (A rep for Universal declined to comment on casting rumors).
Deen has actually yet to read the book, but like anyone, he’s heard quite a bit about it through friends – and he’d be up for portraying Christian Grey if asked. (Ironically, he’s already playing a Christian opposite Lindsay Lohan’s Tara in The Canyons) “It seems like a character I could have a lot of fun with,” he told EW. “I’ve heard really mixed responses about it, like, ‘Oh, it’s a cheesy Twilight wannabe.’… [but] I think it could be fun. I feel like it could be a really cool, fun role to work on.” READ FULL STORY
is actual life events reflected in a mirror and then retold for dramatic effect,” Deen said on the phone with EW this morning. “It’s accurate enough that it can’t be said that it’s not; it’s not a lie. But it’s twisted enough that if you were actually there you’re like, ‘Wait. That’s not exactly what happened.’”
What did actually happen was Deen (real name Bryan Matthew Sevilla), affectionately known as ‘the porn star next door’ with over 4,000 credits to his name, started hearing his name thrown around by screenwriter Bret Easton Ellis on Twitter. Ellis was looking for an actor for an upcoming noir thriller, and needed the person to be comfortable with a lot of nudity. Enter Deen. What Deen didn’t know at the time was the low-budget project that would become The Canyons, directed by Paul Schrader, would also be starring Lindsay Lohan — and that equaled a lot of extra drama.

It will surprise no one to learn that Lindsay Lohan evidently was not invited to last night’s Golden Globes. But thanks to the Internet, we can know all of her thoughts on the event anyway — the Canyons star spent Sunday evening live-tweeting the ceremony, proving once and for all that the Globes are just as important as a presidential debate.
Lindsay kicked the night off by reminding us all that she was once the fresh-faced star of Mean Girls, thus inspiring the Twittersphere to contemplate its own mortality:
I am grateful to of had the opportunity to work with 2 amazing women who are people i admire, such as Amy Poehler & Tina Fey. xo—

She went on to express controversial opinions about Damien Lewis (“he is incredible”), Paul Rudd (“Paul Rudd is the best. Ever”), and Jessica Lange, who is Lohan’s “FAVOURITE!” even though neither she nor Lange is British (or Canadian). A tiny bit of negativity crept in, though, when Lindsay sensed that somebody was disrespecting her iconic Prairie Home Companion co-star:
If you haven’t already, you absolutely must read this “Making of The Canyons/Lindsay Lohan profile” that was published in the New York Times yesterday. The article, “Here is What Happens When You Cast Lindsay Lohan in Your Movie,” is a wonderful behind-the-scenes look at the low-budget film The Canyons that was shot while Lohan continued her public struggles. Between the constant smoking, delusions about her life, how Paul Schrader got her to work and her issues with co-star James Deen, the whole thing is a fascinating read.
For a movie that raises some eyebrows when described (in the article, screenwriter Bret Easton Ellis describes it as a “pranky noirish thriller,” a vision the first trailer definitely backs up), the film comes with quite a pedigree. Directed by Paul Schrader (Taxi Driver, Raging Bull) and written by Ellis, the Lohan-starrer was supposed to be a look at L.A. from the point of view of twenty-somethings. Writer Stephen Rodrick was on set for a lot of the filming, and his stories paint a picture of dysfunction before, during, and after the shoot.
This is a NSFW trailer for a NSFW sketch-comedy movie featuring NSFW language, NSFW sexual innuendo, and NSFW racially-insensitive remarks. But the aptly-titled InAPPropriate Comedy stars Oscar-winner Adrien Brody and features de rigeur cameo from Lindsay Lohan, who clearly was trolling for ways to make her Scary Movie 5 pop-in look sublime in comparison.
It’s directed by Vince Offer, the infomercial guy who brought you the Slap Chop, and that seems about right. You’re going to watch the trailer below no matter how much I tell you it will make your soul ache, so just get it over with. READ FULL STORY
Quentin Tarantino makes no secret of his encyclopedic knowledge of pop culture. His characters are fountains of obscure movie references and his films themselves are functional homages to bygone genre flicks. Nobody would blame you for getting a little bogged down in all of those trivia bits.
But now, thanks to the diligent folks over at College Humor, you won’t have to. They’ve put together a supercut with all of Tarantino’s pop culture references, and what’s more, they’re arranged in chronological order. So, starting with a nod to silent film star Max Linder in Inglorious Basterds, it works its way through the decades until it screeches to a halt on a Lindsay Lohan comment in Death Proof. Think of it as really profane, rapid-fire history lesson from a distinguished cinephile. Yeah, that’s Tarantino in a nutshell.

It was essentially a live viewing party online for Lifetime’s Liz & Dick last night. The movie, which spanned decades, was easy snark ground for the Internet. From the costumes (and those wigs!) to some less-than-stellar line delivery, the whole thing was like an early Christmas present to Lindsay Lohan haters.
Lohan’s fans had less to be excited about — although some certainly were happy for the actress: New BFF Lady Gaga tweeted: “you did a beautiful job on Liz & Dick, Let no one bring u down, Liz didnt, they always try to knock the greats down a few pegs.”

The last time Lindsay Lohan stopped by The Tonight Show, Jay Leno steered the beleaguered actress through a surprisingly frank conversation about her legal woes, her jail time, and what she’s learned from her rocky post-Mean Girls years. “I made a lot of poor decisions in the past,” she told Leno. “And I’m dealing with the consequences of those decisions. So, yeah, there were times when I was concerned [about getting work], but I’m a fighter. And I know I have to work to gain the respect back. And I’m willing to do the work that I have to do to follow through with being an actress.”
Alas, Lohan’s most recent Tonight Show interview wasn’t nearly as candid — though between bouts of nervous hair-playing, she did briefly address canceling on Barbara Walters and the news that she apparently has a half-sister. Of the former, Lindsay said vaguely that “the timing wasn’t right” for a probing 20/20 sitdown; of the latter, she drily commented, “I guess I could give her one word of advice: Good luck with my dad.” READ FULL STORY
