Remember the LA-powered music video that James Franco directed for R.E.M., which featured a Lindsay Lohan cameo? Franco recently revealed to MTV that the Lindsay footage was shot the Saturday night before he hosted the Oscars. "That night before the Oscars we did a final run through of the show and I was just so depressed because I knew it was not good. So I told Terry [Richardson], look I can't do the shoot tonight, I'm tired, and I just can't do the shoot with Lindsay. But she was already there at the Chateau! So he shot her, but I wasn't actually there, I've known Lindsay for a while. It was at a moment where it seemed like she was doing OK." [MTV; Previously]
