(Newser) – Probably the most talked-about article in Hollywood yesterday was the New York Times' rollicking look at filming of The Canyons, an upcoming movie with Lindsay Lohan and porn star James Deen, directed by Paul Schrader (writer of Raging Bull and Taxi Driver). Lohan haters, beware, because Stephen Rodrick's piece might leave you convinced she's the real deal as an actress, even if she did the film for $100 a day and a share of profits. (And then there's that four-way sex scene.) Lohan says the article is generally on the mark, though she disputes one part of it, reports TMZ—and it's not the bit about coming down with "Lada Gaga flu" after a late night partying with the singer, or about the time she got fired, or her arguments on set with Schrader.

No, it's this part:

  • "A few minutes later, Schrader yelled cut. The crew packed up. (Producer Braxton) Pope went to check on Lohan. He noticed that she and Gavin (a friend) had been drinking, which was understandable for a young woman shooting a sex scene with three porn stars. Quietly, Pope told Lohan that he could get her a driver to take her home. But she refused, jumped into her Porsche and headed down the dark, narrow road toward the PCH. They all hoped they would still have a lead actress in the morning."
Lohan swears she never got the behind the wheel after drinking on set. Read the full Times piece here, or E! Online's favorite bits here. (Read more Lindsay Lohan stories.)
