James Deen talks 'The Canyons,' NY Times piece on Lindsay Lohan

By Gina DiFalco,

The Canyons star James Deen, also a porn star, is opening up about the highly-buzzed about New York Times profile about his co-star Lindsay Lohan’s antics on set.

Although he says there’s nothing in the article that is “a lie,” he said it’s told in a more dramatic way than it happened.

"The best way I can describe [the Times article] is actual life events reflected in a mirror and then retold for dramatic effect," Deen told EW. "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.'"

About the audio that was leaked showing Lohan getting pretty short with Deen, telling him to do his “f***ing job,” Deen says it stemmed from him saying he did the movie “for fun.”

“It’s just the delicate ego of the Hollywood person,” he said. “I’ve learned that most people in the Hollywood mainstream world are so delicate, fragile and egotistical. [Comments like mine] really f*** with their heads.”

When it comes to the famous sex scene, Deen set the record straight.

He said there weren’t other porn stars there, and “It wasn’t like we were all having sex and an orgy in the bedroom! During rehearsal, everyone was talking the scene to death. Schrader was so uncomfortable. I think the issue was every other [cast member] was so comfortable, it made Lindsay feel like she didn’t matter. …I think Lindsay wanted [the nudity] to be a bigger deal than it was.”

He added, “She needs attention. [She wanted the crew to be naked] and they just laughed. So Schrader is freaking out and then this is what actually happened: Schrader looked her in the eye and said, ‘I’m not making my f***ing crew do that. But you know what?’ strips his clothes off except for his socks, walks to the monitor, and says, ‘Action.’ And Lindsay ran out from the closet, giggling like crazy, and we shot the scene. One take.”
