I want my career back, says Lindsay
Lindsay Lohan has said she admits making mistakes in the past and "dabbling in certain things".
But in a July interview with Vanity Fair magazine before the Mean Girls star served 14 days in jail followed by 23 days of in-patient rehab, she defended her actions, saying she was young and curious and associating with the wrong people.
"So many people around me would say they cared for the wrong reasons," Lindsay, 24, said.
"A lot of people were pulling from me, taking from me and not giving. I had a lot of people that were there for me for, you know, the party."
Lindsay says she used to get her news from tabloids, which she now calls "scary and sad".
"I would look up to those girls ... the Britneys and whatever," she said. "And I would be like, I want to be like that."
Despite everything, Lindsay is confident in her acting abilities and future, saying: "I don't care what anyone says. I know that I'm a damn good actress."
She says she will do whatever it takes to fix her party-girl image.
"I want my career back," she said. "I want the respect that 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."
She also addresses issues with her father Michael, saying, "I think my biggest focus for myself is learning how to continue to get through the trauma that my father has caused in my life."
