Lindsay Lohan says she no longer wants to be a ‘tabloid sensation’ because her troubled past has ‘matured’ her and she wants to seriously revamp her career.
In an interview with BBC, the actress said she never went into the acting business to become a ‘celebrity’ in the first place … and blames her inglorious past on her having to deal with living ‘in the public life.’
But all that is behind her now, she declared.
‘I don’t put myself in situations where I used to,’ Lohan said. ‘In LA, when people go out at night, that’s all you do. It’s different now. I’ve matured and there’s nothing really left in that life for me.’
In the light of this, Lohan revealed that she’s considering living in London permanently.
‘I’ve noticed here, watching the news, you guys have such a different outlook. In the US starting at 5pm it’s TMZ, it’s all these shows talking about people’s personal lives and here I don’t notice any of that – it’s news and politics and music,’ she said. ‘So it’s nice to be able to turn on the TV and not everything is about gossip. That’s a really nice feeling.’
The actress recently got a 10-week gig to appear in David Mamet’s Speed-The-Plow at the Playhouse Theater later this year, and she hopes that her new role will help revamp her infamous image.
‘I want to be known for my talents and my work that I create, rather than a tabloid sensation,’ she said. ‘However long it does take, I’m willing to do it. I’m willing to work for it.’
