Last week, Lindsay Lohan lamented the fact that top directors in Hollywood didn't wanna work with her, while also whining about how the recession has affected her mortgage payments.
But the unemployed actress wants the celebrity gossip world to a) understand that she's not spoiled; and b) leave her the heck alone.
In a wide-ranging, self-serving interview with E! Online, Lohan complained about the attention given to her personal life. She also insisted that she's a good person. You have to read these quotes to believe them...
On what kind of human being she is: I'm really a good person and I have a good heart and just want to work.
On her passions in life: I don't drink, I don't do drugs and I don't lie. I love to act and write and be creative, and I want to help people by playing characters that can send a positive message out to whomever may need it. *
* THG Note: In the 2007 film, I Know Who Killed Me, Lohan portrayed a stripper.
On moving on: My past is my past and it's been a long one, but I'm growing more and learning more day by day. I'm not the same person and I don't make the same mistakes... I move forward and I change... If people would just leave my personal life alone - because it's really not that interesting - then I could land a great role.
On her goals: I'd like to have my own charity, do work overseas, be in Oscar-nominated films, write movies, produce movies/shows/videos, design clothes, make music, write books, etc. It's all possible if people would just stop judging me and accusing me and making me out to be this aloof, spoiled, ungrateful and unprofessional person that I am not and could never be.
On learning from mistakes: You have to make mistakes to learn so that you can grow up and live your life the right way. Things happen, and you have to move on, be strong and believe in yourself. It would be really nice if people would believe in me.
