She recently spoke out about her concerns to E! News, saying that it’s all taken a huge toll on her health and her relationship. Here are some highlights from the interview...
Lindsay on the media’s obsession with the ups and downs of her love life with Samantha: “They need to stop saying we’re fighting. People telling lies about me to her and all this garbage. I’m really a good person and I have a good heart and just want to work and the only reason I go to clubs is to hear Samantha spin or be normal.”
Lindsay on her torrid past: “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. Life’s too short not to. If people would just leave my personal life alone — because it’s really not that interesting — then I could land a great role. But all the sicko fans and the noise is so distracting."
Lindsay on urging people not to believe everything they read: “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.”
Lindsay on focusing on her career: “I just want to live the dream that I’ve worked so hard for since I was four years old. I’ve been through a lot in my life. And there are many things I’d like to do to let people know that they just have to be strong.”
Lindsay on her future 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.”
Lindsay on believing in herself when no one else does: “With everything that’s gone on with my family, my parents still taught us how to have tact, class, respect for others and how to follow our dreams and never change who we are for anyone or anything. No one is perfect, and perfect is impossible. 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.”
We’re not going to lie! We want her to do those things too! Everyone loves a good comeback in Hollywood. Look at Britney. We think Lindsay needs to stop blaming everyone else and ask herself the questions as to why she’s not succeeding in her career right now.
