(Newser) – For someone who's posed in Playboy, Lindsay Lohan was surprisingly uncomfortable filming a four-way sex scene for The Canyons, her co-star James Deen reveals to the Daily Beast. "She’s never done a sex scene, so to her, this was a big deal that she was showing her boobs and simulating sex," but since everyone else on set was so relaxed about it, "she felt like she needed to throw some drama in there and bring attention back to her," Deen explains. While she was half-naked with two completely naked co-stars in bed, she suddenly made them put their robes back on because she was "really uncomfortable."

But she was still topless, and when they asked her about it, "she was like, 'No! I can be naked but you can’t be!'" Deen continues. "Everyone else on set was like, 'We’ve seen you in Playboy, we’ve seen crotch shots all over the Internet, so this is nothing new,' but to her, it was something different." He also confirms that she wanted the crew to strip down, but he denies that they actually did so (although he says the director did). Deen is surprisingly positive about Lohan throughout the interview, essentially cutting her a lot of slack because of her upbringing as a child star. He also confirms an anecdote in a New York Times profile that said in one violent scene Lohan wanted the director to actually slam her to the ground so she could feel the pain, and then there's this disturbing quote: "She said, 'No, it’s fine! I get bruised and hit all the time!'"

She said, 'When Julia Roberts does topless scenes, she makes the whole crew shoot in their boxers! I want that!' And the whole crew just rolled their eyes and was like, 'We’re not doing that. We’ll do that for ... Julia Roberts, but not you.' - James Deen
