YES YES YES!
That talented actress we once knew so well IS still present under Lindsay Lohan's layers of makeup! YES YES YES!!
Earlier, we explained how Little Miss Lilo was a wildchild on set of the Bret Easton Ellis-penned, Paul Schrader directed indie flick The Canyons, AND how let slip about her father Michael Lohan's abusive ways during a physically aggressive scene…
BUT it wasn't all holly-come-latley and alcohol-fueled sex scenes, as apparently Schrader was MIGHTY impressed by Lindsay's acting skillz, and in one scene in particular, Lindsay's performance PROVED she was perfect for the film!
"All that remained was to get a close-up of Deen touching Lohan’s face with a blood-streaked finger. Only half of Lohan’s face would be in the shot. Most actresses would pop in some Visine to well their eyes with tears and be done with it. Instead, Lohan went back to her room, and everyone waited.
I was standing by her door, and soon I could hear her crying. It began quietly, almost a whimper, but rose to a guttural howl. It was the sobbing of a child lost in the woods.
She came out of her room, and I watched the shot on a monitor. Now, without the garish makeup, Lohan looked sadly beautiful, and it was easy to see why men like Schrader were willing to put their lives in her hands. The camera rolled, and Deen moved in slowly to touch her face. Then Schrader cursed.
'That blood looks completely fake. It’s supposed to look hours old, and it looks fresh. We’ll have to fix it in post. We’re done."
Thank the movie lords that Linds-hay is NOT just a bundle of chaotic failures, and that she can still pull out the big acting guns when need be!
But, we obviously have to see the film before we can start singing her praises.
