This is great stuff.
In an interview with Elle magazine a mere three days before she was pulled over for drunk driving, Lindsay Lohan lamented to idea of getting behind the wheel while intoxicated – and begged to be given credit for her impressive acting job in The Parent Trap…
On attending rehab at Wonderland before her 21st birthday:
“I was growing up and going out a lot, and I needed to have a balance. I was glad I went, because I needed to get away from everyone and I didn’t know how to do that. And I learned a lot there. A bunch of my friends — I was with them last night — they’re in AA for, like, years.”
On former fling Calum Best:
“I like him. He’s me in male form. We’re very similar. Stubborn, rebellious, very smart, coy, a little bit narcissistic — I think all actors have a little bit of that, and so they should. We’ll be kidding around, like the other day when we were in the Bahamas … I was walking by some mirror. And he caught me looking in the mirror and he goes, ‘I caught that!’ I was like, ‘Damn, I look good!’
On the celebrity gossip firestorm surrounding her:
“I feel like the asshole, the idiot, because I feel like I’m distracting from the other things that are important, like global warming and that kind of stuff. I genuinely mean that. And I don’t know what to do.”
On avoiding fame:
“I hate it, like, when these people say, ‘Well, why do you go to the Ivy if you don’t want …’ Seriously, I like their food! I can’t go to a restaurant? I know I’m going to get pictures taken. I’m fine with it. And I’m going to go have their food. People give you s-it for it: ‘Don’t go on Robertson!’ What, I can’t drive down the street?”
On being photographed without underwear:
“It was once, and it was when I was in Venice. And I was rushing through the room, threw the Prada dress on. And that’s what happened. And I didn’t even see the picture. I don’t look at that s-it — that’s gross. If I wear a dress I have underwear on.”
*The Hollywood Gossip note: At least she admits that a Lindsay Lohan nude photo is gross.
On sleep troubles:
“I have really bad insomnia. My whole life. I get nervous at night going to bed, and being awake alone really freaks me out.”
On her career aspirations:
“I just want to be nominated for an award for all the work I’ve done. It’s so funny — people forget that I played two characters in Parent Trap when I was twelve years old.”
* The Hollywood Gossip note: Seriously. Is it too late to hand Lohan an Academy Award for this performance?!? Maybe Paulina James can at least get credit for her portrayal of Lindsay.
On the media:
“If I’m wearing a nude thong, they retouch it. I f—k around on my computer — I know how easy it is. They make my face look swollen. I’m like, ‘Are you that bored?’ I hear things about the night before that never even happened. Like, they said I was dating my best friend — the Samantha Ronson thing. She’s my best friend!”
