Life is full of risks anyway, why not take them?
I write a lot of lyrics and I'm involved in the producing process, because it's like, if I'm singing it, I want it to be something that I can relate to.
"It is clear to me that my life has become completely unmanageable because I am addicted to alcohol and drugs."
"It's flattering that people want to know so much about me and want to take the time to make up that many things about me."
But I'm not going to go and lose my virginity in a movie, yet, because the second I do that, you can't go back. That makes me much older in terms of film and on the screen.
I don't even know how to take a break, because I go crazy. I just sit in a room and I don't know what to do. I went to the Metropolitan Museum and just sat there. But they didn't take any pictures of that, which sucks, because that would have been more interesting than pictures of me coming out of a club.
I don't like to talk about politics. If you say you're a Democrat, that'll turn off Republicans, and that's half of your fan base.
Partying and having all of those pictures taken distracts from the work that I do. It's not why I started acting. I didn't get into acting to be written about. It kind of just happened - so I accept that it's my life. But there are some things that I can do to make changes and grow up. I want to act like a woman rather than a teenager. I am doing the best I can. It was hard surrendering and having people tell me what to do. It was really humbling for me, but I liked how I was treated as a normal person. I kept the common areas clean. I liked making coffee for the gym the best. I'm planning a trip to Africa during the second week in December. I'm working with the American Red Cross, but it is not finalized yet. I just want to apologize to any of my fans that look up to me, especially my younger fans, for setting the examples that I didn't mean to set. That is one of the reasons that I want to change things. I don't want to be known as that person. I have a younger sister and she looks up to me, too. All the negative stuff that gets said hurts my feelings, it hurts my sister, Ali, and my family.
I don't want to keep doing all commercial stuff. But timing is everything. I got this one script where this girl wants to join a Latino gang and she gets raped. I can't be doing that right now. I don't think that's appropriate.
I was sick. I had people sit me down and say, 'You're going to die if you don't take care of yourself.'
I hate it when people call me a teen queen. The past year has felt like five lifetimes because I've grown up a lot.
(Samuel L. Jackson) "I'm a huge fan of his, and as I was walking off the stage with him he started asking me, 'How are you? Are you OK from your accident?' He said, 'I've seen your movie Mean Girls (2004) about five times and I love it'. I said, 'Not only is it amazing to hear that from you, but it's so nice to hear that from someone, because all you read is, 'Lindsay is out 'til four in the morning partying, da, da, da, da'".
Because I'm so much in the spotlight, people lose sight of why I'm in the industry. In fact, I'm doing all this because I love to act. I love to perform, to sing. I go out because it's a release. Going out for me is about seeing my friends and not working. Being seen is just something that comes along with it.
I have this Playboy book called 'Redheads', and I was reading all these things about how redheads are more passionate and apparently they're much more sexual than girls with other hair colors. I think I'm more sexual than my friends. More comfortable in my skin. I'm a sexual person, definitely.
You can't really complain because it's what you have to accept is going to happen when you're in the spotlight, and you want this. And I understand that. At the same time, it's hard when you're just waking up, and you're going out to get your mail and there are people there. It bugs me sometimes, of course, but I don't do it on purpose, you know? I try to just live my life; I'm not doing stuff like that to get noticed. (on not having privacy)
