Porn star James Deen, who makes the transition from erotica to serious drama with new movie 'The Canyons', has said he understands why people think Lindsay Lohan is "a b**tch".
The actor, who was heard on leaked audio being chastised by his high-profile co-star during a rehearsal, said that Lindsay's upbringing has given her a bizarre way of treating those around her.
"She's a child star who's been living in this fame world being chased by paparazzi," he told The Daily Beast.
"I tried to consider that in every interaction with her, so when she speaks, what could be construed as an insult by some was not necessarily intended to be an insult. It was just her communicating her interpretation of the scene."

He continued: "You've got to remember that for the past ten years, Lindsay could not go to Starbucks.
"She was raised in the Hollywood system, so she's used to a certain level of treatment. Instead of saying, 'Excuse me, could you please pass me the water?' she's used to saying, 'I need water', and then someone just giving her water.
"She's been conditioned to say what she needs and then someone will bring it to her," Deen added, "so I can see why people would consider her to be a train wreck or a bitch or whatever, but her intentions are fine."
The actor also recalled an odd incident in which Lindsay was perfectly comfortable being topless on set... but not with those around her being exposed.
"We were all hanging out, joking around... and Lindsay was half-naked," he said. "All of a sudden [she] was like, 'Could you guys put your clothes back on? I'm feeling really uncomfortable'... So we put our robes back on, but she was still lying on the bed topless.
"We were like, 'Well, what about you?' And she was like, 'No! I can be naked, but you can't be!'"
He added: "Lindsay needs to be the star. She felt like she needed to throw some drama in there and bring attention back to her... She needed people to home in on the fact that this [was] a big deal to her.
"But, it was in her mind because everyone else on set was like, "We've seen you in Playboy, we've seen crotch shots all over the Internet, so this is nothing new."'It Was Like Bullying': Celebrity Big Brother's Gillian Taylforth Blasts Speidi Over Claire Richards
