The Canyons' leading man, James Deen, read The New York Times story that detailed Lindsay Lohan's time on set and claims the paper didn't get it right — espcially her work in her nude scene.

The story Deen, 26, has taken mild issue with is glibly titled "Here is What Happens When You Cast Lindsay Lohan in Your Movie." It details Lohan's involvement in the project from her first meeting with director Paul Schrader, through her firing, rehiring and the battles during filming, up until the camera stopped rolling. The Times' sketch on the actress is anything but complimentary, or encouraging to future employers – except where Shrader reveals he might be rehiring the troubled actress in the near future.

“It’s accurate enough that it can’t be said that it’s not; it’s not a lie. But it’s twisted enough that if you were actually there you’re like, ‘Wait. That’s not exactly what happened,’” Deen told Entertainment Weekly.

With over 4,000 credits for his work in the adult film industry, Deen, known as 'The Porn Star Next Door,' is not without his own personal fodder for the tabloids. He got the part in The Canyons due in part to his extensive work in the genre, as it was seen by screenwriter Bret Easton Ellis as a good resume for a part where the actor would have to be comfortable with nudity.

Besides Lohan's occasional meltdown, Deen said that he and Lohan got along well on set. No only did they buddy up during filming to build chemistry, the costars also continued to text in the months following. "She herself doesn't bother me at all," Deen told EW. The porn star was also eager to discuss the filming of the four-way sex scene in the movie, where Schrader apparently had to bare it all to get Lindsay to do the same.

"I think Lindsay wanted [the nudity] to be a bigger deal than it was. She needs attention. [She wanted the crew to be naked] and they just laughed," said Deen. "So Schrader is freaking out and then this is what actually happened: Schrader looked her in the eye and said, ‘I’m not making my f***ing crew do that. But you know what?’, strips his clothes off except for his socks, walks to the monitor, and says, ‘Action.’ And Lindsay ran out from the closet, giggling like crazy, and we shot the scene. One take.” — Chelsea Regan
