According to a new report, Lindsay Lohan was terrified to strip down and film a four-way sex scene in her new movie, The Canyons Rodrick had complete access to director Paul Schrader, both before and during filming.
He describes how the year-old troubled star had a huge meltdown ahead of her racy scenes, forcing year-old Schrader to strip down himself in order to put her at ease.
