Lindsay Lohan's movie career finally appears to be coming around in her favour. Having recently wrapped filming on Liz & Dick, the 25-year-old star has gone straight on to her next job, shooting the sexual thriller The Canyons. Even though filming is only just getting started, director Paul Schrader is already taking an interactive approach - sharing behind the scene photos of Facebook, including this one of Lohan in bed with porn star James Deen, the male lead in the film.
It appears Lohan and Deen are finding the necessary chemistry, with the porn star sharing details of his rehearsals with the Mean Girls star on his blog.
Writing about his last rehearsal with the actress earlier this week, Deen recalled: "My favourite part of the day was sitting with Lindsay Lohan (who is amazing) and our director Paul Schrader (who is also amazing) and planning out how we would shoot our love scenes in the movie."
But The Canyons will be his first mainstream movie, and Deen has spoken candidly about his different approach to love scenes for the film.
"Doing porn is easy," he shared, adding: "[But] the sex scenes in the movie are obviously not particularly sexual scenes.
"They are plot driven story intensive scenes. The point of all this is that the three of us talked about how each shot was going to go and the choreography of each scene. We talked for a long time about it and even used props."The director also described how his first choice for the role of Tara was model Monica Gambee, not Lohan.
