Reputation is everything. And when you're someone who used to be awesome and turned out to be Lindsay Lohan, you'll probably find it extremely hard to shake off the negative image that goes shadows you. Well at least according to best-selling author Bret Easton Ellis.
Ellis was disappointed at how his film The Canyons fared at the box office (really bad), and he's blaming LiLo:
I think where we went wrong was with the casting of Lindsay Lohan. Now I don’t mean she wasn’t good in it, she was very good in the movie. I mean that suddenly The Canyons has become the Lindsay Lohan film ... Lindsay’s reputation follows her everywhere. And the moment that we cast Lindsay Lohan, the movie became something else. It stopped becoming the DIY movie that could make it into part of the trainwreck of the Lindsay Lohan narrative. And we thought the movie was ultimately going to step out of that shadow, that it was going to speak for itself and that people would be more interested in how we made this movie ... But we didn’t. We didn’t step out of the Lindsay Lohan shadow, and it did affect the way the movie was perceived.
Why did they pick her in the first place if they had this doubt? Do you think the movie would have been better if they cast someone else? Or was Ellis' screenplay just not up to par? Check out the trailer below to get a gist of the film:
