Bret Easton Ellis tweeting praise for Lindsay in the past

Bret Easton Ellis has retracted his love for troubled actress Lindsay Lohan.

The writer recently opened up about the critical and box office failure of The Canyons, a 2012 film he wrote which starred Lohan and famed porn actor James Deen. "I think where we went wrong was with the casting of Lindsay Lohan. Now I don’t mean she wasn’t good in it, she was very good in the movie. I mean that suddenly The Canyons has become the Lindsay Lohan film," he explained.

On the Road posterKristen Stewart felt like her "whole body rejected" going blonde for On the Road.

The dark-haired beauty had to dye her locks for her part as teenage bride Marylou in the road movie about the Beat Generation, but said it was very difficult for her to get used to. "I feel like my whole body rejects it, but it was really important for the character. It was like learning an accent. I'm starting to carry a bag and even put on lipstick. Very mature for me."

In one steamy scene, Kristen's character is seen romping with two men, and while she finds the raunchy scenes "insane" to watch back, at the time of filming they felt natural: "It's kind of insane to watch now. I'm like, 'Who is that?' But I think - as every actress says when they do this is - it just felt so right. It was so within a different world and so within a different environment that I don't even really feel... I mean, I am personally connected to it, of course, but it is something outside of myself."

On the Road is based on the novel by Jack Kerouac, which follows the exploits of two young men traveling across the US in the 40s.

Kristen StewartKristen Stewart has reportedly pulled out of the London premiere of her new movie On The Road because she is too embarrassed to appear in public in the wake of her cheating scandal.

The 22-year-old actress was originally planning to walk the red carpet for the film version of Jack Kerouac's classic novel on August 16 - but with her co-star Tom Sturridge, a close friend of Robert Pattinson.

"Kristen won't be doing the red carpet for On The Road - she's too ashamed to show her face in public right now. After everything that has been said, and in light of the revelations that she cheated on Robert with director Rupert Sanders, she's running scared at the moment. There's also the dilemma of standing next to her co-star in the movie, Tom Sturridge. He's very close to Rob and Kristen thinks it would be awkward for her to promote the movie on the red carpet alongside him. Kristen is very proud of her work for On The Road, she grew up reading Kerouac novels and this is a production she always wanted to star in," an insider said.
