Lindsay Lohan is like Rita Hayworth, says cracked-out ‘Canyons’ director

When I was a recreational drug user (years and years ago), I used to buy from a dealer who lived in a really sketchy part of my college town. Not only was it the sketchy part of town, but the dealer’s apartment was basically the stereotype of a “drug den”. My friends and I used to refer to it as “The Shady Place”. I was just struck by that memory when I was looking through these photos of Lindsay Lohan leaving Mr. Chow’s last night in LA. Lindsay is a walking Shady Place. Everywhere she goes, she turns the place into a den of crack, drama and sketchiness. My guess is that she got high before she went to Mr. Chow’s, then she did some lines in the bathroom, so she’s riding high in these photos.

You know the Cracken is working again, right? She just finished her first week of The Canyons, that micro-budget film in which LL plays a washed up hooker (typecasting!) who pretty much has sex in every other scene, I think. Well, the film has a Facebook page and director Paul Schrader decided to blow some crack smoke up Lindsay’s ass (she charges extra for that):

LINDSAY. Seven days in, first full week completed. Lindsay Lohan is a huge fan of Hollywood glamour and performances from the Golden Era. Working with her every day on varied scenes I’ve been making a mental checklist of classic movie performances she’s touched upon. There’s has been a lot of Ann Margaret, some Gena Rowlands and Faye Dunaway and of course some bits of Liz Taylor and Monroe as well as a little Rita Hayworth and even Gene Tierney (although the last may be more my creation than hers). Oh yeah, and Angie Dickinson. And Lee Remick. And Shelley Winters… . Paul S.

[Via The Canyons Facebook page]

Ann Margaret? Gena Rowlands? Faye Dunaway? RITA HAYWORTH? Jesus take the wheel. Does anyone else get the feeling that The Canyons is less a “film” and more like a bunch of shady people getting high together and saying, “Dude, you are SO like Steven Spielberg.” And, “I know, girl. You’re like Rita Hayworth. How much for a beej?” Because honestly, I don’t see how someone sober can look at this crack-face and say, “OMG, Rita Hayworth.”

    You know, I’ve been rooting for her to get her life together for such a long time, I simply can’t feel bad for her anymore. It’s gotten to a point where it’s just beyond sad.

    • corny says:

      it’s too easy. isn’t there anyone that can try to help her? #trainwreck

    • Canda says:

      Is she not washing her hair anymore either? Bad enough her weave is jumping ship, she can’t even hop in a shower after all the faux-orgy filming?

      Major eww.

  3. brin says:

    That rumble you hear is Rita Hayworth turning over in her grave (just as Liz Taylor did before her).

  4. says:

    Crack delusion is contagious.

  5. Chris: now with 10% less negativity says:

    I’m sorry to say it but after looking at those photos I would.

  6. Neelyo says:

    Wow her body has no tone whatsoever. When her metabolism changes, she’s going to be fucked.

    And I guess the crack smoke from Lohan’s trailer is wafting onto the set. Schrader must be high.

    • erika says:

      yeah, the pic of her in the car passenger seat, her underarm is flabby, and totally white! I know that white cuz that’s what i look like!

      and…Lilo uses self tanner lotion and puts it on herself? she does! i know, cuz i use it myself! and if you’re not careful about blending, you get sketchy patches all over…like LILO has!!!

      OMG! I actually Trump a ‘movie star’ when it comes to the beauty upkeep dept.,

      ..but…i think that even the homeless trump Lilo at this point (apologies to the homeless..)

  7. Sisi says:

    all this time I was hoping she would bind those filthy long extensions away… and I guess this is what that would look like.


    I’m sorry I suggested it

  8. DanaG says:

    I guess they are all sharing cause if he really thinks that he isn’t on this planet. What is with her outfit? It is just ugly and her boobs are lopsided. Lindsay might feel because she is getting work she must be doing ok. But the work she is getting is not even D list. With all those famous actresses she is channeling she needs to settle on one and it would help if they could teach her how to apply makeup.

  9. Cathy says:

    What is with that ugly ass outfit she is wearing? And they shouldn’t put down the memories of those great actresses by comparing the crack monster to them. There outta be a law against it.

  10. the original bellaluna says:

    I like the necklace and earrings. Wonder who she stole them from?…

    • Erinn says:

      Ahaha, I was thinking the same thing. I really like the jewelry. But wouldn’t touch it with a ten foot stick after she’s had her grimy mitts all over it.

  11. Lily says:

    Mirror mirror on the wall who is the most beautiful and most talented of them all? You Lindsay. You are the one and only and there never will be another.

  12. the original bellaluna says:

    Does this porn director even know who those women are? Because Blohan and those fabulous, beautiful actresses should never, EVER be in the same sentence.

    Unless it’s something involving the words “delusional crackhead” or “she’ll never be.”

    • RocketMerry says:

      My guess is he was not so much praising her as, say, basically admitting that she is a psycho with about ten clearly distinguishable personalities, each one with a delusion of grandour and a firm belief of resemblance with a beloved HW legend.

      He just could not find the right words for it :)

    • Amanda says:

      He’s not a “pr0n director”, he’s a respected and well-known writer/director with several classic movies under his belt. Doesn’t mean he’s right about Lindsay, but still. Give the man his due.

  13. dee says:

    Oh, come on now! Don’t compare her to legends such as Rita Hayworth. She’s not even a good actress.

  14. paola says:

    Why directors, who obviously are so blind because are either sleeping with her/ staring costantly at her boobs/hoping endlessly for a bj, have to pollute iconic actresse’s name. i mean.. the only thing Rita Hayworth and Cracky Loan have in common are the ginger head.. and maybe some mental illness..but hey Rita at least was talented and classy.

  15. grabbyhands says:


    That is all.

  16. karen says:

    Maybe. Rita once said something like men were disappointed when they thought they’re were going to bed with Gilda and woke up with her…..same thing for Lohan. People go into projects with LL expecting Mean Girls, but wake up to Crackie.

  17. Boo says:

    The DListed story/comments on this Lindsay bit are great. Several people are comparing Lie-Ho with Little Edie, but that comparison pisses off all the Little Edie fans. But this series of comments below was my favorite:

    Submitted by louise_brooks on Mon, 07/23/2012 – 3:12pm.

    It’s like he was just naming every single old timey movie actress he could think of.

    “…and Vivian Leigh! And Jean Harlow! And Alla Nazimova! And Faye Raye! And Colleen Moore! And Mary Pickford! And Jane Mansfield!…..”


    Submitted by Deb on Mon, 07/23/2012 – 5:08pm.

    LOL! And I swear I saw nuances of Clara Bow and Theda Bara!

    • A-rod says:

      Lol! I was one of the Edie defenders! :) Anyway, people tend to forget that Lilo was a child star like 13 years ago and a young adult star almost 9 years ago. She hasn’t done any acting *period* in recent years, much less any acting comparable to any legends!

      • Boo says:

        Edie doesn’t deserve this crap any more than Liz, Marilyn, Rita, or any other legit actress does!

        Go Little Edie! :)

  18. Diana says:

    Atleast she’s working now…
    (Dont feel like kicking her when she’s so low)

  19. katie says:

    last year i was defending her, and rooting for her to grow up and get past a lot of her issues… now it just seems blaringly obvious shes passed some check point of no return. its sad, but at the same time she just seems like such an assh*le.

    i grew up with sh!t parents like her and had a few bad years when i was younger, i was really hoping she’d get some frontal lobe development and snap out of it somehow. doesn’t excessive drug use in your teen years almost stop your frontal lobe development dead in its tracks? its like she mentally can’t grow up and realize what a train wreck she is. i dont see her willingly detoxing any time soon… she may be a sloppy b*tch, but i would hate to see this addiction kill her.

  20. fabgrrl says:

    Well, Rita Hayworth did suffer from alcoholism all her life….

  21. marie says:

    hahahaha, oh really? that’s just, I don’t even know, ha ha ha ha pathetic

  22. Micki says:

    OF COURSE I think about her as the reincarnated Hayworth!!
    And every other day she’s Elizabeth Taylor for me too!

  23. MK yarwood says:

    Looks like she’s started to cut her own clothes out of stolen bolts of rayon.

  24. MK yarwood says:

    Also, lots of us grew up with parents who were sh!t at their jobs at one time or another. Have to stop blaming them, and living their lowest opinion of you at some point.

  25. Me says:

    The guy in the last photo looks like that “manager” that was drugging Britney Spears up, think his name was Sam Lutfi?

    • Autumnleaves says:

      Agreed. hollyweird used her up and she’s made self destructive choices that has continued to hurt herself and get career. I feel for her and all the young stars because perves in that town love to use up young girls then leave them to the wolves.

  26. Anna says:

    As someone who loves film and writes about it on a regular basis, this almost made me want to throw up. Linds must give one hell of a blowjob in order to get people to say shit like that about her.
    Dude obviously has no idea about film whatsoever if he thinks anyone can combine elements of all these actresses. Even someone as fantastic as Cate Blanchett or Meryl Streep couldn’t do Ann Margaret AND Liz Taylor AND Rita Hayworth AND Faye Dunaway AND AND AND… This is just ridiculous to the point where it’s both painful and sacrilegious.

    • Amanda says:

      He’s completely wrong, but to say “dude obviously has no idea about film whatsoever” shows your own ignorance of film. Dude is Paul freakin’ Schrader. At least spend a few minutes reading about him on Wikipedia before you claim to be more knowledgable about film than he is.

      • Kimlee says:

        Are you like his #1 fan or somthing?

        with they way you go from comment to comment talking about what a “great” director he is you sure seem like it.

      • Anna says:

        I never claimed to be more knowledgeable, even someone with only a cursory knowledge of film can tell you what I did. I know full well who he is and what he’s contributed to New Hollywood film. That doesn’t necessarily mean he’s still at the top of his game or can make accurate assessments about Golden Era stars. Also, blowjobs can turn a guy’s mind to mush.
        And if you do give him the benefit of the doubt and assume he’s still as great as he used to be then you *know* he’s talking out of his ass because someone paid him or blew him (maybe both) to say these ridiculous things. Either way, he’s not looking too good making such comparisons.

  27. Dee Cee says:

    Rita Hayward had a horrible life, abused by every man she came in contact with, hating the movies she did and died from lifelong complications of being a hopeless drunk..

    • lassie says:

      I believe she also had Alzheimer’s as well , which is just a shitty way to die.

    • ya says:

      Ya I was going to say that too – they do have a lot in common.

      Lindsay actually has a lot in common with many of the old-time actresses – it’s just that the media was more discreet then about substance use in Hollywood, and the effects of substance abuse were hidden more easily through black and white film and vaseline on the lens.

      Plus actresses with addictions issues back then were contractually forced to work – and given more drugs to enable them to work – like Judy Garland, for instance.

    • Autumnleaves says:

      True. Stories from old hollyweird had nothing on this new generation. Reading Hayworth’s story was truly one of the most heartbreaking I’ve ever read.

    • Autumnleaves says:

      Exactly. a couple of weeks ago American Experience broadcasted Judy Garland’s story and she mentioned how harsh the studio treated her from everything from get life life to working constantly without break. One of the reasons why she ended up on drugs. It’s par for the course in hollyweird. I could here the pain in her voice as she recalled her time under MGM and other venues. Unfortunately, Lindsey is in very good company. nowadays, the tabs generate millions showing stars in the ugliest light because studios realized it was better to gain greater profit from the tabs instead of losing money protecting the image of certain stars who don’t go along with the system.

  28. Green_Eyes says:

    I bet every actress that was famous, a pin up, or even had a smidgen of notoriety in their day (past and present) is either rolling over in their grave or praying they do not read their name in any delusional reference as being channeled by or a likeness there of when if comes to them and The Cracken!! Next those nasty legs will be as glamourous as Betty Grable’s?? Katherine Hepburn’s sense of timing and Audrey Hepburn’s sense of style???
    NOTE TO CRACKEN.. You can’t hold a candle to any of them. And the ONLY THING CLOSE
    TO ANGIE DICKINSON IS THE SOMETIMES HOOKER HER CHARACTER DT. PEPPER ANDERSON WOULD PORTRAY WHEN SHE WAS BUSTING JOHNS -Not doing them, BUT busting them… Oh wait Pepper was even a Classy Hooker…lol don’t think that applies to Lohan, that ship sailed w/ the Crack long ago…

  29. Green_Eyes says:

    Is she a redhead now because she thinks she is Rita Hayworth now? Just wondering?

  30. Katy says:

    She looks so dirty!! Gross…her hair looks like it is dripping with grease. She makes me sick to look at anymore.

  31. Beck says:

    No wonder she is so delusional. Morons like this “director” and her mother fill her head with nonsense.

  32. Madison says:

    In the last photo, is that the pink bag (carried by her assistant) that she denied having when she crashed into the truck?

    • Boo says:

      The “assistant” is wearing a tee shirt, a long sleeved shirt, and a leather coat (is it January in Los Angeles?), what looks like pajama pants or sweatpants and bedroom slippers. She looks like she tried to get dressed up in that piece of fabric…but he looks like he showers even less frequently than she does and puts in even less effort (is that even possible?). I think the dude in white is giving them the side eye there because they’re stanky.

  33. kaligula says:

    Oh no. I’ve been an LL supporter, as I am of basically all of life’s underdogs, but… Rita Hayworth? Yes, I guess I could see her resembling or calling to mind Rita Hayworth, but only ***NEVER!!***

  34. lucy2 says:

    Oh good, more people contributing to her delusions.

    I am constantly amazed by how the shape of her face has morphed with all the drugs and alcohol. It’s so strange.

  35. Sillyone says:

    Not only are her boobs hanging down on her navel in the top photo they are also at her sides how in the world is that even possible?

  36. Quinn Parker says:

    More like Dana Plato.

  37. Love says:

    No I don’t think Lindsay embodies women who were smart enough to have careers as real actresses and not a prostitute who
    Sometimes acts .. Sorry ! And I embody Cindy Crawford , Kate upton , and amber Valletta , and all the Victoria’s secret angels .. Running out of names here .. But yeah I’m hot shit here lol haha .
    Take it from me , this girl is nothing but a walking splooge sponge . He probably was just trying to get her to give up the back door for $100 less than her normal asking price

  38. pepi says:

    lately she´s looking so high!

  39. Tanya says:

    please don’t use such a beautiful icon like Rita in the same sentence as this mess….her portraying Liz was bad enogh…ugh…..

  40. MorticiansDoItDeader says:

    I think she’s found her new p0rno name, MargaRita HeyWorthless.

  41. Izzy says:

    Ah, hell. Pass the Cracktini pitcher please.

  42. claire says:

    You have to be high to think it looks good to walk around with blotchy spots of fake tanner all over your body.

    I feel bad for good, non-cracked-out actresses that are trying to make it in Hollywood, and see this girl still getting jobs.

  43. GirlyGIrl says:

    Meh, what’s he supposed to say?

    “LINDSAY. Seven days in and we’re already three weeks behind. She needed more cash for what she called “That Operation” this week. I caught her with my wallet twice already and she tried to seduce a Production Assistant yesterday. He wasn’t interested and now she demands I fire him. Sigh. When I first arrived at film school I had a lot of dreams you know, none of them involved doing low-grade direct to DVD porno with a dried up junkie who (allegedly) can act. My Mom was right, I should have gone to law school”

  44. LittleDeadGirl says:

    I see a little Danny DeVito and John Wayne when I see her too.

  45. lassie says:

    What is the side holes in the shirt–is it attached to the skirt? And elasticized waist? I also think she was going for the Kardashian slicked back ponytail but just looks like she has vasoline in her hair.

  46. Nikzilla37 says:

    She is def high in all these photos. And her lips! Gosh, she is going to look really terrible in her 30s.

  47. Migdalia says:

    This is so sad…another Amy Whinehouse situation minus the great talent. Look at her hair it’s really thin and she seems to be balding which I guess Meth or some other hardcore dug will do to you.

  48. Amy says:

    Rita Hayworth!? Meh. I’m seeing a little Kirstie Alley in her bloatface, myself.

  49. logan says:

    Yea, just like her. Inhales (deeply), exhales and walkes upright (most of the time). That is where the likness ends!

  50. ses says:

    I love that her Brandon Davis-looking greasy bear assistant is wearing a hat that says “Unstoppable.”

    Ummmmm…..not quite.

  51. Byte Me says:

    Looks like Lindsay’s gained weight.

    Does she have anything lined up after the porn she’s filming now?

  52. Annie says:

    I’m seeing more Mickey Rourke in her myself.

  53. tru tru says:

    this post cracked me up!

    but no disrespect but didn’t Rita die from alcoholism??? and alone.

    I loved her by the way.

    the whole “cracken” “crackden” just makes me holler with laughter.

    but its true every pic looks SHADY and dank.

  54. HannahF says:

    I’m not sure why he made that odd comment but @Amanda is correct, Paul Schrader is not some guy shooting a movie with a camera he borrowed from his parents. Among other things, the guy wrote Raging Bull and Taxi Driver. He’s directed a number of films as well.

  55. hillbilly in the corner says:

    Rita Hayworth sleep her way up the ladder in Hollywood starting as a 15 yr old dancer …she probably sleep with every powerful man in hollywood at the time of her career with the urging and consent of her husbands and managers..She drank like a fish , and smoke like a chimmley…was’nt that great of a actress and wasn’t that hot in bed….men could wait to get her in bed only to get out of bed just as fast…. So yes I see the comparsion but not as a actress as a hollywood whore…. The change rita name , they changed her hair line and hair and they changed her whole mouth and teeth..which hurt her for the rest of her life…. Read the Real Life of Rita Heyworth written about 50 yrs ago…not this modern revisionist hollywood shyt…
    If Paul is such a wonderful director why hasn’t he worked since 2008 and the movies he has to his credit are NOt movies I would recommend to anybody…..Sound like he was as high as Lindsay when he gave that interview…..NObody is that talented…NOBODY…..keast if all a no talent like Linday..

    • Megan says:

      Rita Hayworth was a legend. She danced with Gene Kelly and Fred Astaire. She is considered one of the great golden age actresees. She had a tragic life and dated a few @ssholes, but she was gorgeous as well. Lindsay Lohan is NOTHING compared to her.

      • marjiscott says:

        Sorry to disagree, but good ole Mom worked with Rita Hayworth on set in the 40′s. She always was professional, NOT DRUNK during working hours.You would get fired for that in those days, ya now. Would anyone like to hear about my Mom having a car accident with Kath Hepburn?

    • Madisyn says:

      Belle, did you see my message to you on the Dina ‘Ding Dong Ditch’ thread?

      Double coming right up for Mort. Did you get my email I sent a while back? If so, DISREGARD, that SLAG isn’t going to be held responsible, no way, no how . . . . .

  57. Jo 'Mama' Besser says:

    I don’t know who he’s talking about, but I’m sure Ann-Margret is relieved to see that he’s not talking about her.

  58. nightshaye says:

    I hope you know that when it comes to ugliness, you all are giving Lilo a run for her money.
    What are you all missin with all this dissin?
    Sure, she’s a public person, and this is a public site, so let me say the long reach of addiction doesnt discriminate regarding gender, race, economic background, age, etc.
    I’ve been coming sober to meetings for 22 years and seen everyTHING.
    Including older folks who thought they were off the hook, never thought they’d have a problem. But there they wd come in, but for the Grace of God go I.
    Why you have to diss her, who did nothing to you, is none of my business, and I don’t care either.
    But I do hope hope you know the truth -the sad part is I know some of you already do – which is, that none of you are above this.

    • GirlyGirl says:

      You’re right we’re no different from her… Oh wait we are as none of us would have been let off the hook so many times if we behaved the way she does.

      This is a case of the celeb machinery (and the State of Cali) letting one of their own off the hook repeatedly.

      Ask the people at your meetings how many of them were caught crashing cars and then lied to the police and then walked away scott-free.

  59. e.non says:

    her lips aren’t just puffy; the bottom lip looks a little droopy.

    god she is such a mess.

  60. Shoe_lover says:

    that whole thing made me puke- not just the Rita Hayworth ref but the others as well. did anyone else go to the fb entry to tell him he was a delusional moron?

  61. Luffy says:

    She’s got the body of a 50 year old. I wish she would wear a bra.

  62. Megan says:

    Rita Hayworth?!? Is this guy delusional? Rita Hayworth was a goddess, I don’t even know what Linday Lohan is anymore. As of right now she doesn’t even look human..

  63. ZenB!tch says:

    Kaiser, when I saw that first picture, I thought you had let me down. She looks almost human.

    However, I should not have doubted you. The rest of the pics are classic!

    I <3 the unwashed hair.
