Paul Schrader - The Canyons Director Compares Lindsay Lohan To Hollywood Legends

Director Paul Schrader is so impressed with Lindsay Lohan's work on his new film, he has compared the troubled actress to Hollywood legends such as Rita Hayworth and Faye Dunaway.
The Mean Girls star is attempting to get her career back on track following numerous stints in jail and rehab over the last few years and she recently started work on new movie project The Canyons, directed by Schrader and written by American Psycho author Bret Easton Ellis.
Schrader has completed his first week on set with Lohan, and he insists he can see sparks of Hollywood greatness in her performance.
In a post on the movie's Facebook.com page, he writes, "Seven days in, first full week completed. Lindsay Lohan is a huge fan of Hollywood glamour and performances from the Golden Era. Working with her every day on varied scenes I've been making a mental checklist of classic movie performances she's touched upon.
"There's has been a lot of Ann Margaret, some Gena Rowlands and Faye Dunaway and of course some bits of Liz Taylor and (Marilyn) Monroe as well as a little Rita Hayworth and even Gene Tierney (although the last may be more my creation than hers). Oh yeah, and Angie DICkinson. And Lee Remick. And Shelley Winters... Paul S."
