First Look: Lindsay Lohan Shows Off Her Acting Prowess In This Scene From ‘The Canyons’


Last June we learned that Lindsay Lohan managed to score a role as a porn star in a new Bret Easton Ellis film titled The Canyons. In October, we got our first look at the first trailer for the film. Today, we get to see an actual clip of Lindsay doing actual acting in the movie. As you can see above, Lindsay finds herself in a bad way when she cannot locate her phone. Oh No! Yeah, it’s pretty bad … you have to check it out and judge for yourselves tho.

In other news, The Canyons has been rejected by the Sundance Film Festival so clearly the folks at Sundance aren’t impressed with Lindsay’s acting abilities either. Click below to learn more.

The producers of Lindsay Lohan’s film, “The Canyons,” are stunned that their flick has been rejected by The Sundance Film Festival and they think it’s largely Lindsay’s fault. We’re told the Sundance people reached out to producers to screen the movie, and we’re told producers were led to believe it was a shoo-in. But we found out Sundance passed on the film recently, and the film’s producers believe it might be due in part to the hijinks of its troubled star. They think Lindsay was a “turn off” to the highfalutin Sundance folks. “The Canyons” producer, Braxton Pope, tells us his agents William Morris/Endeavor are having a screening for buyers at the end of the month and a number of big companies are interested. We also spoke with Lindsay’s co-star — porn star James Deen — who tells us he’s not bothered about the Sundance diss … saying, “It coincides with AVN (the porn awards).

This movie looks and sounds a HOT MESS. I have no doubt that The Canyons will find a distributor but this idea that it’s worthy of film festivals is hilarious. I’m not sure that I’ll pony up to watch this movie in full but … it’s coming, like it or not. Are you ready?

    I think it is going to be terrible….just from that clip

  • Jess

    I don’t want to see or hear about this girl any more! ugh, over her!

  • rOXy

    Jeebus help me, but I watched. It was painful.

  • emily

    Why do I get the feeling this is LL’s morning everyday? She wakes up confused, scared, can’t find her phone and then gets yelled at by someone while she cries and makes excuses.

    • Melissa

      Emily, I felt the same way! It was as if we were watching a live stream of her mornings. It made me very uncomfortable.

  • Jennifer Wilson

    oh. my. no.

    also. that guy should start doing yoga or something cause he really, really wakes up on the wrong side of the bed.

  • Vicky

    Nothing with Lindsay Lohan in it is worth seeing… for any reason other than to make fun of it.

    • rOXy

      Thank you for articulating my excuse!

  • emily

    @ Trent – did you see the NYT article about filming the Canyons? This reporter had unprecedented access to the process and LL does not come out looking good …

    • @emily — Yes, read it … not surprising at all.

    • emily

      @ Trent – I heard the article is an example of how far LL has fallen – normally something this candid is never revealed about actors – but since she has no power in Hollywood anymore, stuff like this can be written. It reminds me a bit about Tom Cruise too … as his star is falling, more bad press is shared about him … something unheard of at the height of his career.
