Lindsay Lohan Blamed For The Canyons' Failure By Movie's Screenwriter! Shade Thrown!

If canyons are known for anything, it's their large amounts of SHADE!!!

Lindsay Lohan got called out for ruining the movie The Canyons by an unlikely source: the writer!

Needless to say, his comments might forever echo in Lindsay's mind, and just like our body after spending an afternoon in a chasm, they're full of burns.

Bret Easton Ellis recently talked about how LiLo was to blame for the flick's underwhelming box office performance on his podcast, saying:

"I think where we went wrong was with the casting of Lindsay Lohan. Now I don’t mean she wasn’t good in it, she was very good in the movie. I mean that suddenly The Canyons has become the Lindsay Lohan film…Lindsay’s reputation follows her everywhere. And the moment that we cast Lindsay Lohan, the movie became something else. It stopped becoming the DIY movie that could make it into part of the trainwreck of the Lindsay Lohan narrative. And we thought the movie was ultimately going to step out of that shadow, that it was going to speak for itself and that people would be more interested in how we made this movie… But we didn’t. We didn’t step out of the Lindsay Lohan shadow, and it did affect the way the movie was perceived."

We think that Lindsay's narrative is more of a recovery story now, as opposed to a trainwreck like Bret said!

Hopefully, Bret's remarks won't erode Lindsay's self-confidence! Gurl is doing so well!

    This guy is an absolute FOOL! My goodness… what was he expecting? I can't think of another celebrity that gets more bad press than LL. Of course the film would become the "LL" film…. geeesh. Dumb ass.
    That said,…. she seems to be doing ok right now :) Go Lindsay!

    I don't even know why you guys posted an article about his comments. I wouldn't give him any attention for that remark.

    He chose her. He has only himself to blame.

    Glad he thought she was very good in it. Way to go, Lindsey, just take that part from it and ignore the rest !!!

    lolll lindsay lohan is not the reason why the film didn't do well… it didnt do well because it simply SUCKS!!! the ending was terrible, sensless… it looks like a 5 year old couldve written it without the sex scenes of course… which by the way felt like they were thrown in there because sex is so in these days…
    Terribleeeee movie, and it'S not to blame on Lohan, it's the writer's, really.

    Lindsey used to be a good actress..she is a "has been" and any writer or any producer that does not that needs their head examed…I would not watch anything she is in…."HAS BEEN"….hopefully, others will listen and learn from this guys mistake

    No shade thrown here, Perez. He said she was even good in that part.

    They used her for stunt casting and it backfired. The movie was bad, and her acting wasn't any damn better, not to mention she looked like a 45 yr old hooker. She's still going out to clubs and hanging around the same losers she always has, so nothing has changed with her, hopefully this will help future producers and directors from making the same mistake.

    She basically played herself, that's not much of a stretch for any actress. Ellis shouldn't complain about the movie not doing well because of Lohan, they hired her, they should have known better.
