Lindsay Lohan compares herself to Marilyn Monroe, says she doesn't want to be a celebrity, and wishes people didn't focus on her problems. Are we playing two truths and a lie? We're totally playing two truths and a lie...o wait...Lindsay is serious about all of those statements.
Ok, let's break this down. Lindsay has a couple DUI's, has had several stints in rehab, steals necklaces, and can barely handle her house arrest, yet she says she doesn't want to be remembered as someone who "gets in trouble." Just a hunch, but I think you kind of ruined any chance of that happening when you based your entire career on getting into trouble.
"I had always thought that movie stars were in films that would last forever in your mind. But now the films don't. I don't want to be remembered as someone who just wanted to be photographed, who goes out at night, and gets in trouble," reveals Lohan.
So what does she want to be remembered as, because she's clearly not a "movie star." I mean, I thought she was RIVETING in "Herbie Fully Loaded," but that's just me, I have a thing for "car films."
Lindsay continues, "People in their mind have created who I am and act as if there is no real person inside of me. Just like Marilyn."
Okurrr, did she just compare herself to Marilyn? As in Marilyn Monroe? For some reason, Lindsay has decided that she is the reincarnation of Marilyn Monroe.
Back in 2008, Lindsay posed for a photoshoot with NY Magazine where she recreated Marilyn's famous "The Last Sitting" photoshoot from 1962. Lindsay was actually photographed by Bert Stern who shot Monroe back in the day. While that is very cool, Lindsay has taken this to mean, "I am JUST LIKE Marilyn Monroe" and "I am the new expert on Marilyn Monroe."
All these Lindsay-on-Marilyn quotes are from a forward she wrote for Susan Bernard's new book, "Marilyn: Intimate Exposures." Lindsay writes, "Marilyn never wanted to be just a celebrity. Neither do I."
Oh and then Lindsay name-drops Heath Ledger, yep, keep reading, "Heath Ledger once said to me, 'it's built you up to knock you down' and that's all it is. Marilyn said she had no foundation. But she said she was really working on it. I've been trying to do the same thing. I believe in myself and I'm a good actress."
Couple questions: 1) Does Lindsay really refer to Marilyn Monroe on a first name basis? 2) Is LiLo the only celebrity they could get to write this forward? and 3) Why is Lindsay proving her own acting talents in a biography about Marilyn Monroe?
Oh my favorite, Lindsay says she identifies with the late star, "I can understand the photographer [Bruno] Bernard of Hollywood's statement, 'It took a superhuman effort to be Marilyn.' I identify."
Really Lindsay? Really? As far as I know, they only thing they have in common is their hair color.
