Lindsay Lohan is having cold feet about doing nude scenes in the new movie The Canyons.
Novelist Bret Easton Ellis tweeted this week that Lohan will star in his upcoming film, opposite a porn star named James Deen. But Lohan hasn’t signed on the dotted line, and is now reportedly having second thoughts, because the film has scenes with full-frontal nudity.
“Lindsay and her team are concerned about the nudity that is involved,” the New York Post quoted a source as telling Radar Online. “Lindsay would be required to do full frontal nudity, and the sex scenes are very, very graphic,” the source said.
Ironically, the Mean Girls star appeared in the pages of Playboy just last year.
“Yes, Lindsay has posed nude for Playboy, but doing it in a movie is completely different,” the source further told the site. “Lindsay needs to make sure that she is comfortable with it, and that this is something she can handle as an artist.
“It’s expected that Lindsay will sign the contract in the next two weeks, as filming begins at the beginning of July. Lindsay has admired Bret’s work for a very long time, and one of her favorite movies is Less Than Zero,” the source added.
The film is reportedly about, “Youth, glamour, sex and Los Angeles, circa 2012,” which seems right up Lohan’s alley. It’s being directed by American Gigolo’s Paul Schrader.
Lohan is currently playing Elizabeth Taylor in a Lifetime movie, Liz And Dick.
