Lindsay Lohan has a new interview with US Weekly for the release of her movie ‘Liz and Dick’, and she talks about why she’s always loved the camera, why she went off the rails in her teens, and how she’s back on her feet.
When talking about paparazzi attention, she says, “Since I was a kid, I’ve loved being on camera. Don’t misconstrue that: I didn’t strive to have flashbulbs at dinner or people who don’t know me calling TMZ. And 99% of the time, it’s not true. I feel bullied. Even when I colored my hair, tabloids said I was going crazy. I wanted a different hair color! I can’t think of any actor who has been subjected to such extreme publicity who hasn’t, like, committed suicide.”
She adds that things really went out of control when she was a teenagers, saying, “I was a teenager and everything I did was onthe news. I would have been in college then. I’m not defending it because I chose to be in the public eye. But it got exhausting. I still don’t think it was a bad thing that I was going out a lot. When I got in trouble, I owned up to it.”
She adds that she finally feels good in her life, especially as she starts to earn the truth of producers and directors again - “I’m grateful. I think there are a lot of directors and producers who know I’m a good actress. I just want them to get past the misconception that I’m not reliable, because I am. I’m going to make them believe in me again.”
