On the heels of her Lifetime movie premiere for Liz & Dick, US Weekly ran a story on troubled actress Lindsay Lohan and former flame Samantha Ronson. In the interview with the popular celebrity magazine Lindsay admitted, “Two toxic people cannot be together. End of story. We’re friends now. That’s how it started so I think that’s how it was meant to be.”
She also made some pretty broad assumptions and clarifications for the press. One of the main caveats centered on her first same-sex relationship and the acknowledgment that had cameras following the couple’s every move.
“I was bold enough to say, ‘Yeah I like a girl. And?’ That put her in a situation where she was being attacked every day,” she said. “That’s not fair. And what am I left with? Heartbreak. That was three years ago. It was my last serious relationship.”
Lohan also referenced her hardcore interference with authority and drug use in the interview, saying, “Kids go through ups and downs, try drugs, cigarettes and drinking. It’s human nature.”
Did she learn her lesson?
“It took a while but it’s like ‘What was I thinking? Why did I allow so many sycophants and bad influences to be around me?’”
In reference to the famous icon she portrays in Liz & Dick, Lohan said, “Elizabeth was drunk on sets. I’ve never been drunk on set, ever. I did my time and I respect the law.”
Lohan has relocated to New York where she is now living near family and friends – something the 26-year-old thinks agrees with her more than the Hollywood lifestyle she grew accustomed to knowing. And, if she needs it, there are New York addiction recovery centers nearby.
“I was lonely and didn’t realize it. That’s why I came back home to New York,” she said. “I never feel lonely there. I see my family and have really good people in my life.
Perhaps it’s a good thing Lohan has returned to New York if this next quote has anything to say about it…
“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 percent of the time, it’s not true,” Lohan said. “I feel bullied. I can’t think of any actor who has been subjected to such extreme publicity who hasn’t, like, committed suicide.”
