Lindsay Lohan, that shameless queen of self-promotion, last seen in the buff for a spread in New York magazine, graces the cover of next month’s Paper magazine (pictured right) looking like she needs the loo. In the interview the Mean Girls stars opens up about her troubles (again!) It’s no wonder she hasn’t got any films out – she’s so bloody busy just talking about herself. Who needs a career when you can be famous just for being famous, eh Linds?
On the past (drugs, booze, partying): “I had a lot going on in my life and that was a way of hiding from it,” explains Linds like a corny therapist. “I hadn’t seen my dad; I had a lot of work stress ’cause I was constantly working and never took time to stop. Everything was go-go-go, and the easiest thing was to run away from it, going out and drinking at night. You know, you don’t have to think when you let go sometimes. But I didn’t realize it was getting in the way of my work – what I’ve worked for my whole life.”
On rehab: “There’s not really much else to do when you’re sitting in a treatment center. Its like, ‘Why am I here? Let’s think.'”
On the future: “Right now I just want to find a great script, a great role. I was so used to working and working and working, and for a good few months there was nothing for me to do. Now I know what it’s like to be an out-of-work actor, and how much it scares me.”
Clearly Lindsay feels a bit sorry for herself and hopes that we readers will sympathise with her ‘plight’. So over to you Star Trippers – should we feel bad for Lindsay?
