Lindsay Lohan says her book will be 'like Harry Potter'

Lindsay Lohan's upcoming book will be like "Harry Potter" because there will be so many instalments.
It was recently reported that the 28-year-old actress is planning a tome about her life, with claims she wanted Fifty Shades of Grey author E.L. James to work with her.
There was also speculation Lindsay wanted help from J.K. Rowling, who penned Harry Potter, but the star is adamant that is untrue. She has likened her plan to the series written by Rowling though, while insisting rumours she will include details of her infamous sex list are wide of the mark.
"I would never write to violate someone else or objectify them; that's not my intention. I like to write because it's like therapy for me. I want to put a lot of photos and cool stuff, it will probably be like a trilogy, like Harry Potter because there's so many," she told MailOnline.
Lindsay has been through a lot in her life, including multiple stints in prison and rehab. She finished her last spell in treatment in 2013 and hopes to write about how she is getting herself back on track, suggesting she has a lot to offer people in the same position as her.
"I've kept journals my whole life, since when I was a kid and stuff and I think I have a lot to say," she said.
"I worked with a lot of girls in India that have gone through a lot of stuff, and a lot of kids who have gone through family issues or who get subjected to DUI or anything like that and then the pressure of just being better.
"I feel like my book will be more about that than anything else because there's the excitement of the life that I have lived but I've seen a lot and if I can help anyone that might feel like it's OK to screw up, it's OK to feel lonely, or ugly or to feel overweight or underweight."
Lindsay is currently living in London, UK, after moving from New York. She made the decision to relocate after struggling in the aftermath of her reality TV show for Oprah Winfrey's OWN network, as she was unprepared for the intense interest it received.
She's now getting ready for a turn on the London stage in Speed-the-Plow, which will be the first time she's ever trodden the boards. Although the star is excited about the prospect, she is also starting to worry about what it entails.
"I think it's just the idea of when it starts, on opening night, that's what makes me the most nervous. I'll probably mess up on the first night just out of fear," she laughed.
"I've never done a play before. I've never even taken acting lessons, I've never done anything like that and it's something new to me and it's live."
The star hopes this play will help her silence her critics. She is tired of being known as a wild child and is open about making poor choices in the past, but says that is entirely behind her now.
"I lost a lot of that credibility and I take responsibility for some of it but it's also an industry where it's celebrity based and I have been made out to be something like that and I don't want to be known for that, that's not why I did this," she added.
