Your Daily Dispatch of Celebrity Shenanigans
LiLo’s Full Frontal Worries: In 2005, Lindsay Lohan told Access Hollywood, “You’ll never see me in a nude scene,” and with the upcoming indie movie “The Canyons,” we’ll find out if the actress sticks to her statement or not. According to Radar Online, the actress – who according to author Bret Easton Ellis will star in his latest movie with porn star–attempting-to-go-legit actor James Deen – is worried about the amount of flesh required in the movie. “She hasn’t officially signed the contract yet,” a source close to Lindsay told Radar. Adding, “Lindsay and her team are concerned about the nudity that is involved. Lindsay would be required to do full frontal nudity, and the sex scenes are very, very graphic. Yes, Lindsay has posed nude for Playboy, but doing it in a movie is completely different. Lindsay needs to make sure that she is comfortable with it, and that this is something she can handle as an artist.” It appears Lindsay’s love of Bret’s previous work with Robert Downey Jr. might sway her. “Lindsay has admired Bret’s work for a very long time, and one of her favorite movies is ‘Less Than Zero,’” the source said.
