Lindsay Lohan criticised by "Canyons" director

September 26th, 2013

Lindsay Lohan has been criticised by 'The Canyons' director for failing to support the movie.

Paul Schrader has hit out at the 27-year-old actress - who he previously referred to as a ''talented but unpredictable star'' - for her lack of support at the Venice film festival last month and for turning her back on him after he gave her a chance following her brief stint in rehab.

Taking to Facebook, he said: ''I am mystified and disappointed by LL's refusal to support The Canyons. She is a producer of the film, a 25% owner. She has received wonderful reviews (among the negative) for her performance.

''I hired her when no one else would. She fought to keep the role when I wanted to fire her for unreliability. She has no other films in the can. (sic).''

The flame-haired beauty - who has previously posed nude for Playboy magazine - appears as a porn star in the thriller alongside James Deen, and Schrader predicts she ducked press commitments because she wasn't keen on Deen.

He explained: ''I can only surmise that Lindz had decided that Canyons is part of a reprobate past she must put behind her in order to move forward. She was never comfortable working with James Deen and perhaps this still sticks in her craw. I assume those closest to her, her family and reps, had advised her to treat Canyons as an indiscretion.''(sic).''
