Grant Bowler Gallantly Defends Castle Lohan from the New York TimesS

Won't anyone stand up for Lindsay Lohan in the wake of a pretty damning NYT article? Fuck it — Grant Bowler will. Contrary to anecdotes from The Canyons set that depict Lindz as a monster with a bullhorn voicebox and bullwhips for fingers, Bowler insisted that the star-crossed actress acted like a total pro on the Liz & Dick set:

I never got yelled at. We had a lot of quiet and intense conversations. We didn't have that relationship at all. To be completely fair to Lindsay, that did not happen. She didn't threaten me at all. We had a lot of quiet, serious conversations about characters and we worked very, very hard. And we both ensured that when we came to set, we came to set very, very serious. That's the God's honest truth.

Quiet and serious, now that sounds like the Lindsay Lohan we all remember from...that one movie, you know, where she's a stripper ghost or whatever. [E!]
