Yesterday, we found out that Lindsay Lohan was a bit of a diva on the set of "The Canyons." According to an article in the New York Times, Lohan cried a lot, screamed, and threw tantrums on the regular during the three-week shoot.

Now, thanks to TMZ, we have even more info about her wild and crazy behavior while turning the Bret Easton Ellis book into a film -- the gossip site got hold of a recording that features LiLo dressing down her co-star, porn-star-gone-mainstream James Deen.

In the audio, Lohan can be heard talking with director Paul Schrader during a rehearsal, and being a raging bitch to Deen:

Let's actually do the're like this, yeah? But you're holding me. No? OK, let's act. I know it's for fun for you, but let's do it.

Schrader then calls action, and Lohan continues her tirade even as Deen proceeds to try to go ahead and act.

Lohan: What's your lines? No, but can you do...please James, say your lines as you're walking over, because we are doing rehearsal with the lines. Are we not? Do your fucking job. Deen: I was until you started talking over over me.

Lohan: I didn't say anything, I just walked over. Do your fucking job.
