Oprah and actress Lindsay Lohan come together for an exclusive highly anticipated in-depth conversation. August 18 on OWN.
Lindsay Lohan is fresh out of rehab and ready to ruffle some feathers.
The “Canyons” star, who just completed a three-month stay at the Betty Ford Center in Rancho Mirage, Calif., stood in as host for an episode of “Chelsea Lately” last night, which is set to air next week. During her pre-recorded appearance she lampoons at least two stars: fellow 20-something actress Kristen Stewart and One Direction boy-bander Harry Styles.
Reading off cue cards, Lohan pokes fun at Stewart’s typical upside-down smile during a bit about the “Twilight” star’s recent anti-paparazzi rant. “I’m just excited that Kristen Stewart finally showed some emotion,” Lohan jokes, though she’s quick to add, “I really like [Kristen], I think she’s awesome.”
But she doesn’t stop there. “Of course [Kristen] hates photographers,” Lohan continues. “They caught a picture of her kissing a married man in a Mini Cooper!” She’s referring, of course, to those infamous paparazzi snaps of Stewart making out with her “Snow White and the Huntsman” director, Rupert Sanders.
Lohan also mocks Styles’s recent denial of his rumored bisexuality, while bringing her own private life into the mix. “Harry Styles was on the cover of British GQ,” she reads. “He was questioned by the interviewer about the rumors that he’s bisexual with a DJ named Nick.” Before proceeding, she quickly interjects, “I’ve been there, I have” — a nod to her former romance with DJ Samantha Ronson.
She goes on: “He answered, ‘We’re just friends.’ When asked how many people he’s slept with, Harry said, ‘Yes, lower than 50. You’re cornering me. I’ve only ever had sex with two people.’” Then she delivers the punchline, quipping, “Yeah, he’s never hung out with The Wanted and he’s obviously not counting oral.”
“She said she felt really good,” a source at the taping reveals to People. “And she was polite to everyone, thanked the whole crew. She was on time, hit her marks, and was very funny. The audience loved her!”
Exclusive: Lindsay Lohan is getting out of rehab on Saturday, kids. It’s been 90 days, she’s fresh as a daisy, and determined to turn over a new leaf. One thing is for sure: we know she can act. Paul Schrader’s “The Canyons” screened here last night in New York and Lindsay got kudos (in absentia) from everyone. Indeed, as Schrader said, she’s grown out of the ingenue stage and into a new chapter as a tough cookie, a broad. Think Annette Bening in “The Grifters.”
And so: it does seem as though Lindsay is going to be in Ben Affleck’s next directing project. Ben is putting together “Live by Night,” based on the novel by Dennis Lehane. Lindsay is thisclose to signing on– possibly as Emma, the tough waitress with a heart of gold who gets involved with the two male leads. “Live By Night” is a crime noir period piece, and Lindsay would be perfect for it.
In the meantime, Lindsay has agreed to be followed around by Oprah’s documentary crew for the first 45 days of her return home to New York. She’s going to be living “The Truman Show.” What better way to keep her on the straight and narrow?
“The Canyons” is going to be remembered as a notorious movie, one that should become a cult classic overnight. There is graphic sex. Lindsay is naked, friends. Her breasts are her own and, as Elaine Benes once said, “spectacular.” She acts up a storm, is not campy but very controlled and quite riveting. Unfortunately most of her scenes are with real life adult porn star James Deen. His emotions run from A to Z. Deen speaks in a monotone that could hypnotize Edward Snowden’s interrogators. There’s just no way out for him. I’m not even sure he makes the minimum requirement for porn acting.
Schrader called Brett Eaton Ellis’s characters “Beautiful people doing bad things in nice rooms.” I like it! The whole movie cost $250,000 and they raised it on Kickstarter. The production was given a Malibu canyon house “and it’s the sixth main character in the film,” Schrader said last night. It’s owned by someone in the music business, he said.
“The Canyons” is rated NC-17, at the very least. You should know that going in. There are threesomes and foursomes, and I’m not talking bridge or golf. Deen has some sex with a guy which Lindsay’s Tara encourages. This is not “The Parent Trap.” But it’s Paul Schrader, and you know what? Even for $250K it looks good, the direction flows, and there’s a story.
Schrader’s next film stars Nicolas Cage, and is said to be under the aegis of Red Granite Productions.

After going through so many tough moments in her life relating to drugs and alcohol, the troubled star feels that she’s ready to be a mother. Lindsay Lohan is looking for a sperm donor so she can bring a child into the world.
According to Entertainment One India, Lohan has asked many of her male friends to see if they were willing to donate their sperm. In response her friend told her, “See if you can take care of yourself before you think about bringing a kid into the world.”
Many friends and family are saying that the Freaky Friday actress has gone through too much legal trouble, including going to jail, over the past few years, and she is just not ready.
Lohan is currently in the process of shooting for an untitled Oprah Winfrey Network documentary, which will be aired next year.

Oprah has done it again: EW can exclusively report the entertainment mogul has landed Lindsay Lohan for an exclusive sit-down after the actress emerges from rehab later this summer.
Moreover: Oprah Winfrey’s OWN cable network has signed Lohan to an eight-episode docu-series that will follow the actress as she works to rebuild her career and stay healthy. The interview will tape and air in August, with the series to air in 2014.
“OWN will air an exclusive interview with Oprah and Lindsay Lohan that will tape and air in August and an eight-part documentary series with Lindsay for 2014,” an OWN spokesperson confirmed.
The 27-year-old Lohan is currently serving a 90-day court-ordered stint in a rehabilitation facility that is expected to conclude on July 31. Getting her first post-rehab interview is considered a big scoop, while the series is arguably even bigger — Lohan has turned down unscripted project offers for years, preferring to focus on scripted acting roles (though her family participated in an E! docu-series titled Living Lohan in 2008). Lohan recently had guest-star appearances on Fox’s Glee and FX’s Anger Management, as well as starred as Elizabeth Taylor in Lifetime’s biopic Liz & Dick. She also co-stars in Paul Schrader’s upcoming film The Canyons.
Over the last year on her Oprah’s Next Chapter program, Oprah has scored a string of coveted celebrity interviews, including Lance Armstrong’s doping-admission interview, Rihanna talking about her turbulent relationship with Chris Brown and an interview with Whitney Houston’s family after the singer’s death. Her network, which got off to a rocky ratings start, is coming off its strongest quarter yet, up 32 percent from the first quarter.
Lindsay Lohan is receiving high praise from herCanyons director, Paul Schrader.
In a piece penned for Film Comment, Schrader draws parallels between Lohan and Marilyn Monroe’s professional and private lives, but says Lohan has more raw talent than the screen icon.
The filmmaker offers, “I think Lohan has more natural acting talent than Monroe did, but, like Monroe, her weakness is her inability to fake it.”
Schrader explains that Lohan “feels she must be experiencing an emotion in order to play it,” noting, “This leads to all sorts of emotional turmoil, not to mention on-set delays and melodrama.”
The director adds that while his time shooting with Lohan was fraught with “tardiness, unpredictability, tantrums, absences, neediness, psychodrama,” he feels it was a “treat” to work with the troubled star.
Schrader shares, “All the drama, the mishegas, all the stress—that means little. A director can shoot around misbehavior. He can’t shoot around lack of charisma.”
“I just wish it was easier for Lindsay,” the director admits.
Lohan has been compared to Monroe many times in the past, and has channeled the legendary actress in a number of photo shoots.

Look out, Big Apple.
Lindsay Lohan will be out of court-ordered 90-day rehab at the end of the month and her mom, Dina, has big plans for her.
For starters, a pool party.
Lohan turned 27 on Tuesday but wasn’t allowed visitors at Cliffside Malibu (after switching from Betty Ford last month) because it was a weekday. She wound up having a “very quiet” birthday, Dina tells the Daily News, with “all the kids at rehab” who have become pals.
And when LiLo does leave the facility, the star will head back to New York to fulfill her court-ordered community service, Dina said Thursday.
“She’s not going to live in Los Angeles,” she told The News. “She will definitely start back home with all of us.”
She added, “It’s been a long road, and she’s going to be fine.”
Lohan was ordered to rehab in March after she pleaded no contest to reckless driving and lying to police about a car crash on a Santa Monica highway last year. The judge also sentenced her to 30 days of community service and 18 months of psychological therapy.
