So it comes as no surprise that the Paul Schrader film features a lot of nudity – in particular from the 27-year-old actress.
And as the film was released in the US on Friday it didn’t take long for grabs of the topless star to find their way online.

Lindsay, who’s character Tara also takes part in a four-way sex scene with three porn stars in the film, famously made the film crew strip to their boxers while filming one of the scenes.
Writing about the incident Stephen Rodrick, recalled: 'Lohan dropped her robe. Schrader shouted action, and they filmed the scene in one 14-minute take. About halfway through, Lohan looked directly into the camera and flashed a dirty, demented smile at Schrader.’

A lot of talk: During filming Lindsay made all the cast take their clothes off when she stripped off
Speaking about working with Lindsay on the film, writer Brett recently said: ‘I have no idea what Lindsay’s leaning toward. All I know is she’s very street smart. She’s a very mixed up 20-something, but very knowledgeable about film and composition and lighting and hitting your mark.
‘When she did our first table read, she blew me away. She was late, she was a little scattered, we had nervous small talk, and then she turned it on immediately.’

Just two days after Lindsay completed her court-ordered stay in rehab she returned to work and recorded a guest-host gig for Chelsea Lately.
According to TMZ, sources on set said the actress was 'very funny,' mocking host Chelsea Handler for drinking too much and holding her own during a roundtable with with comedians Jen Kirkman and Fortune Feimster.
The Canyons was released on August 2 at the IFC Center in New York City, the Bell Lightbox in Toronto, and on video on demand platforms. It is yet to be released in the UK
