Lindsay Lohan - Lindsay Lohan similar to Canyons character

Lindsay Lohan is similar to her character in 'The Canyons'.

The actress - who was recently ordered to 90 days in rehab - plays a troubled young woman with a history of substance abuse in the erotic thriller, which also features porn star James Deen, and there are many parallels between Lohan and her character, Tara, according to co-star Nolan Gerard Funk.

Speaking to BANG Showbiz exclusively on the red carpet at the MTV Movie Awards in California on Sunday (14.04.13), he said: ''Lindsay definitely gave me a lot to work with. As an actor I think the least interesting thing about an actor is their personal life, but Lindsay plays a character who has gone through so much with substance abuse, lots going on in their personal life, and she gives a great performance.

''There was so much controversy about Lindsay, and then with James being cast, too, but we're all so proud of the movie. It's getting great buzz from serious film people so I'm excited for everyone to see it.''

The noir thriller - which was written by Brett Easton Ellis and directed by Paul Schrader - follows a group of young, ambitious, sexually-charged people in their 20s living in Los Angeles.

The MTV Movie Awards air on MTV UK, Sky 126 and Virgin 311, on Monday 15th April at 21:00.
