For the first time in a long time, Lindsay Lohan has something to say that isn't simply a denial of her and Samantha Ronson breaking up.
The troubled actress - who has remained relatively quiet and headline-free since she became a lesbian - gave an in-depth interview recently to Interview Magazine. Here are excerpts from it:
On movie stars: When I was a kid, I thought movie stars were women and men who were in these great films that we still look at now. But I don’t think there are too many films coming out these days that we’re going to look at in the future and say, ‘This is one of the great ones.’
On the public perception of her: In terms of what people see of me, I have become this girl who just loves to be photographed, doesn’t know how to focus, doesn’t know how to work on set, just loves the attention, knows how to go out at night, knows how to party. I just feel as though it’s become a situation where people have manifested this caricature of who I am, and they act as if there’s no real person inside of it.
On professional opportunities: what hurts me the most is that I work just as hard as any other actress around my age, like Scarlett Johansson, but I just don’t get the opportunities that they get because people are so distracted by the mess that I created in my life. But that doesn’t mean it’s going to last forever.
