For all of Lindsay Lohan's troubles, give her credit for trying to emulate (some may say rip off) her legendary predecessors. A few years ago, she paid tribute to Marilyn Monroe by replicating her famed final photo shoot. She's portraying Elizabeth Taylor in a TV movie about that icon's relationship with Richard Burton. And the other day, she repeated a trick Carole Lombard pulled off nearly eight decades ago.
When filming a chilly outdoor scene for "From Hell To Heaven," Lombard said she would do it only if crew members stripped down to their underwear -- and they complied. Perhaps Lohan read about that somewhere, because on the set of her new movie, "The Canyons," she had to do a topless scene (OK, Carole probably wouldn't have done that on screen, but those were different times), and to make Lindsay feel more comfortable, the crew worked in their underwear.
This is nothing new, by the way; for the 2010 film "Love And Other Drugs," where actors Jake Gyllenhaal and Anne Hathaway appeared in numerous nude scenes, director Edward Zwick worked naked at their request. Be thankful this was never asked of Ernst Lubitsch.
