The teetering star could use a little love these days, and that’s exactly what she’s getting.
Lindsay Lohan has become somewhat of an easy target for critics in the past few months. But James Deen, the porn star-turned-actor who costarred with the actress in her upcoming feature film The Canyons, is coming to her rescue.
Deen recently gave an interview on Lohan to the Huffington Post, where he spent a good deal of time defending her honor.
“I thought she was great to work with, I never had any issues with Lindsay," he said. "But I don't have to deal with the Hollywood bullsh-t aspect of the film ... I enjoyed her on a personal level.”
LiLo has been subject to intense scrutiny about her performance in Canyons—both in front of the camera and behind the scenes—even before the film has been released.
An expose published in the New York Times Magazine earlier this month unveiled the on-set shenanigans, including some clashes between the two actors brought on by Lindsay’s, um, methods…
Lindsay has since gone on the record saying that the report is mostly true.
But Deen seemed less concerned with that matter during his interview and was more interested in convincing us that he DID NOT bump uglies with Lindsay.
“We didn't have sex,” Deen said, referencing a graphic sex scene in the film. “Yes, it's a four-way. Sure, you see boobs and ass. ... It's a plot-driver, and it was shot in a way where you're not thinking it's just four people having sex.”
A possible romance budding with the Hollywood wild child in the future? That, he said, seems like a no-go, too…
“Lindsay can't even go to Starbucks,” said Deen. “She's so famous that she literally cannot just go out. She has to be snuck in through a secret passage so the paparazzi don't get to her ... That would stop us from being a successful couple, nothing else.”
