Of course, it wouldn’t be a Lohan interview without some family finger-pointing though. Despite the fact that Lindsay admits “I was irresponsible. And I’m not making excuses,” she does say that some of the blame lies with her father, Michael. She says “I think if anyone should be looked at medically it’s him. He has such a big chemical imbalance at this point because of all the things he’s done to himself. Ã¢â‚¬Â¦ The worst part of it is you turn around and you see your dad crying and normally you’d be, like, happy that your father’s there. But then he has to go and do an interview right after.”
Lindsay claims that during her irresponsible days, she was just doing what any college-aged kid would do. Any millionaire college kid, that is. “I was experimenting. I was doing certain things that people do 10 times more of when they’re in college…I didn’t have any structure. In the beginning, I had structure, and then I lost all the structure in my life. I think a lot of it was because when I was doing my first slew of movies, it was very go-go, and I had a lot of responsibility, and I think just the second I didn’t have [structure] anymore Ã¢â‚¬â€œ I was 18, 19 Ã¢â‚¬â€œ with a ton of money.”
Valid points, all of them. We’d certainly be going the escapist route if Michael Lohan was our dad. She finally admits that her career, as much of a joke as it’s been lately, is the most important thing to her. She explains “I want the respect I had when I was doing great movies. And if that takes not going out to a club at night, then so be it. It’s not fun anyway.”
It’s not fun, that’s why you do it every night! And as for a respectable career, your plastic lips to the party-gods’ ears, Linds.
