Was Lindsay Lohan just cast as 1970s porn star Linda Lovelace?


Isn’t it horrible that the first thing I thought when I saw these newly-released photos of Lindsay Lohan was “dirty armpits”? It’s like, “Yeah, she has a gun and she’s covered in blood, but seriously, didn’t Lindsay think to wash her pits before the photo shoot?” Anyway, yes, photographer Tyler Shields released more images of Lindsay’s gun-totin’ photo shoot, which we already got a preview of last week. Since releasing the images, Shields has gotten some criticism, because I guess people think he was exploiting a crazy, screwed up girl by covering her in some blood and giving her a gun? I mean, what could go wrong? But Tyler wants people to know that it’s just his vision:

Lindsay Lohan’s Tweeted pic from a photo shoot where she is holding a gun to her mouth was shocking to some of her fans, but photographer Tyler Shields told OK! he didn’t see it that way at all.

Tyler’s photo shoot with Lindsay was out of the box, and a bit shocking — or was it?

“Did you think so?” Tyler asked OK!? “Well for me, it was just what I saw in my head and with anything that you do, you want to affect people negatively or positively.”

“There were a lot of people that saw the photos and thought it was foreshadowing or whatever, but to me it was just a part of what was in my mind at that moment,” he explained.

So did Lindsay do the graphic shoot to prove a point about the rumors swirling about her?

“No, she is a good friend and she came to me and told me that she wanted to be involved with my work the way that I do things so that’s what we did,” Tyler told OK!.

And what we’ve seen so far is only half of it!

“There are even more graphic images that we didn’t show yet that will be out in my book, the Dirty Side of Glamour.”

[From OK! Magazine]

Eh, I don’t really blame the guy. Lindsay knew what she was doing, sort of. She’s not a child, contrary to what her mother claims, and Lindsay made her choice. Plus, it has ended up being great promotion for Tyler Shields, who I had never heard of before. So, good on him.

By the way, a few weeks ago Lindsay was telling people that she was cast as 1970s porn star Linda Lovelace, but producers were all “ah, no.” However, according to E! News, Lindsay has in fact been cast as Lovelace in the movie Inferno. Tyler Shields was the one to announce the news, claiming that Inferno’s director Matthew Wilder had contacted him about shooting Lindsay for the promos. According to Marc Malkin, “Wilder and his producers plan to officially announce Inferno later this month at the Cannes Film Festival.” Let’s see how long it takes for Lindsay to get fired…

    I’m sorry, but that pic of her laying on the floor is just EXTREMELY disturbing.

  2. Constance says:

    I just don’t believe she has paid jobs anymore(with a national currency).

  3. Tess says:

    What a sad spectacle. She’s self destructing right before our eyes.

  4. dovesgate says:

    Oh, how I hate the black hair. Think she’d look less cracked out if she went back to red?

  5. jdao says:

    These pics turn my stomach.

  6. OXA says:

    They may cast her but getting insurance on her is another matter.

  7. hottathanholywatta says:

    she idolized marilyn munroe I wouldn’t be surprised if she met the same end. Sad Smut!

  8. onyx says:

    the guy is such an opportunistic asshole, who just wants to ride the bandwagon for as long as he can. look at his face, that’s the face of a true loser!

  9. snowball says:

    It looks more like bruised armpits to me.

    No one in their right mind would cast her in anything. She’s either on prison or death watch not to mention no one would insure her.

    Imagine if she ever does straighten out and reproduce. Can you just think of these pics floating around of your mother? Well, not like she hasn’t done worse things, but still.

  10. hatsumomo says:

    You know you hit rock bottom when you cant even get hired for a low-budget porn movie on a porn-image you so carefully created.

  11. Jess says:

    This Tyler guy looks like some nerd with a camera who thinks he is ‘an edgy artist’ who sees dollar signs with Lindsanity. How the hell is her squirming on the floor in thigh highs, stilettos, and underwear considered art? Ugh… yeah, let’s give Lindsay a gun, throw some blood on the wall..Voila.. I’m an artist.

    F.U. Tyler.

  12. LindyLou says:

    @constance – do you mean they are paying her in crack?? Now that makes sense!! LOL

  13. Lois says:

    Yes, yes, Lindsay’s a mess; I’m wondering if I’ve missed your coverage of Lynn Redgrave’s passing?

  14. Tia C says:

    “Artistic” or not, those pix are gross.

    If she really does play Linda Lovelace, I’d say that’s perfect casting.

  15. bellaluna says:

    If, by some miracle, they are able to insure her, I’m sure she’ll find another way to screw herself out of the job. She’s skilled like that.

  16. meme says:

    Hohan may idolize MM but she is NOTHING like MM who would never have posed for such trashy disgusting “art” photos.

  17. terry says:

    If she does play Linda I hope it is a movie that shows her oral skills. After all The Brown Bunny showed Chloe Sevigney’s oral skills. Swallow it whole Lindsay!

  18. Melinda says:

    I’m so sick of looking at her in this state. It’s getting really tired. A gross mess that just keeps on going.

  19. Dallas says:

    If she has been cast, then hopefully she will be in jail an unable to shoot the movie!

    From my mouth to God’s ears………..

  20. crazydaisy says:

    these pictures are f-ed up. i don’t like seeing this on celebitchy. please remove this post, folks. it’s violent and awful.

  21. mouth.like.a.sailor says:

    @crazydaisy- no offense, but it’s no more awful or violent than half of the movies that we all watch. i don’t get why so many people are completely freaking out about these pictures. that’s all they are… PICTURES, PHOTOGRAPHS, some else’s ARTISTIC IDEAS.

    if you dont like it than don’t look at it. it’s as simple as that. i, personally, like the pictures… as a photographer and art student, myself, i think they look really good and i think he was incredibly fortunate to have a friend with her notoriety be willing to go into this with him and just go for it. they’re for a book and with the title “The Dirty Side of Glamour” i’m actually interested in seeing the rest of it, it looks provocative enough to be interesting.

    i don’t know…maybe it’s because i live in an urban environment and i have a lot of “artist” friends and know a lot of people who are comfortable pushing the boundries of things, but this is just not shocking to me. if this is what lindsay lohan wants to do with a friend of hers for a cool book of photography, good for her. who the hell cares? like i said, i think they’re pretty cool pictures and i think it was a nice thing for her to do, to help out a friend and garner the attention and all the media buzz about it, otherwise no one would have heard of it.

  22. jc126 says:

    Those pics are just sad, especially considering what a trainwreck she is already.
    Regarding playing Linda Lovelace – another sad case. I felt bad for her, but she did some things – one in particular – that is beyond vile and disgusting, and was badly exploited by her mate at the time she did those movies. The poor thing ended up dying in a car crash at around age 53.

  23. elisha says:

    Doesn’t Perez call her dirty pits? I haven’t read him in years, but it seems he used to make fun of her armpits. Anyway, my point is, yes, her pits are apprently perma dirty and you’re not the only one who’s noticed.

  24. Ruby Red Lips says:

    I think its perfect casting – acting role as a pron star can only lead to the real pron career…

    Sad mess

    btw – there is a fine line b/wn art and pron, and just because its contraversial does not make it art – there is an awful lot more to it than that, just using a drugged out ex-celeb in provocative poses does not art make…

  25. Joseph says:

    Art? That’s funny.

  26. Tru says:

    damn HORRIBLE!!!

    is she predicting her fate???


  27. The Bobster says:

    I doubt that she has Linda’s “talents”. Good thing she isn’t alive to see this.

  28. juicyjackie says:

    I think I am on my own – but I like these pictures.

    They are art, art is supposed to make people think, talk, have any emotional response …. although the opinions on here are negative because you all feel you ‘know’ LiLo. If you didnt know what was happening with her personal life these wouldnt have been so badly recieved.

    Fair play for the photographer seeing an opportunity and fair play for her to keep herself on the rollercoaster for as long as she has without actually working.

  29. GatsbyGal says:

    @JuicyJackie – It’s not art. Yeah, art is supposed to make people think and talk…but I don’t think it counts if people only think and talk, “Wow, this is trashy and stupid.”

  30. mia says:

    A porn star in the making.

  31. Wresa says:

    I wouldn’t call these “art,” because I don’t necessarily consider public relations “SHOCK!” tactics to be art. He knows that people think she’s about to OD and die, and he’s playing on that with the suicide-themed monstrosity I see above. Not quite the same as trying to say something about suicide, depression, etc., through symbols, themes or…whatever else photographers use.

    Just my opinion. Beauty (or not) is in the eye of the beholder, of course.

  32. skeptical says:

    since when did we decide that a bloodied up woman was sexy.

    when did sex and violence start becoming the same thing?

    This isn’t art.

    This is just glorifying violence against women.

    and he’s getting famous off it. he’s getting rewarded.


  33. CB Rawks says:

    The first thought I had was that Lovelace would be bummed out because the actress playing her is too trashy.

  34. hellen says:

    “if you dont like it than don’t look at it”

    Yeah, that’s a good answer. Ignore the implications, ignore the exploitation of drug-dependent woman and the trivialization of violence involved, just don’t look.

  35. Lita says:

    This is about as edgy and in-your-face as Madonna circa 2000 throwing another tired insult at the Vatican. If you want to talk about this in terms of art, how about the words “tired,” “old,” “hackneyed,” “derivative” or “so passé that it’s pathetic” – ?

  36. g says:

    A desperado for attention. Ignore her. She’ll go away in time.

  37. Aspen says:

    I don’t like images of a woman who has been beaten, cut, and then shot while lying prone on the floor in a pool of her own blood being called “art.”

    You go ahead and call it art if you want to…but damn.

  38. Annabelle says:

    not seeing the dirty armpits… at all.

  39. Constance says:

    I think so many of you totally understood the vision here. Hoe is a mess. Plain & Simple.

    The Photog (I’ve yet to see anything in his portfolio worth considering art) is trash and like many trashy upstarts was looking for an ass-name-media handout. He got that. We get that.

    I agree the images are disturbing. I think the commentators, who think “disturbing” means that the insinuated violence and nudity are too much, have it wrong. It’s not all about what she’s doing.

    Personally, I think calling the shoot “The dirty side of glamour” was WAY the F off. There is nothing glamorous about her. There has never been anything glamorous about any Lohan. It’s disturbing to see her dressed (again) like a cheap crack whore and being propped up to pose by another set of douchebags. Watch the video… Those people weren’t professionals or artists.

    At least she didn’t bring Al-I-am-35 with her this time. Well, maybe it wouldn’t be the first time Linds&mom failed to pimp out both daughters for a small purse of coin… or crack.

  40. Olivia says:

    Goood luck on getting her insured.

  41. Caroline says:

    I almost threw up looking at these. This/She is fucking gross.
