Lindsay Lohan: I want my career back

Vanity Fair caught up with Lindsay Lohan at the moment her world was spiraling in a legal tailspin, about one week before she started her jail sentence for violating probation from a 2007 drunk driving case.

So with her legal problems fresh on her mind, the 24-year-old star had quite a bit to say about her career plans, the mistakes she's made and the rumors that she has a substance abuse problem - insinuations that she denounces in the interview with Vanity Fair.

“If I were the alcoholic everyone says I am, then putting a [SCRAM] bracelet on would have ended me up in detox, in the emergency room, because I would have had to come down from all the things that people say I’m taking and my father says I’m taking,” she told the magazine in an interview that will appear in the October issue. “So that says something, because I was fine.”

The 24-year-old star also insisted that she’s “never abused prescription drugs. I never have—never in my life,” Lohan said. “I have no desire to. That’s not who I am. I’ve admitted to the things that I’ve done—to, you know, dabbling in certain things and trying things ’cause I was young and curious and thought it was like, O.K., ’cause other people were doing it and other people put it in front of me. And I see what happened in my life because of it.”

At this point, Lohan is trying to regain her focus, aiming to not only learn "how to continue to get through the trauma that my father has caused in my life," but also to get her career back on track.

“I want my career back. 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,” she told Vanity Fair. “I don’t care what anyone says. I know that I’m a damn good actress. … And I know that in my past I was young and irresponsible—but that’s what growing up is. You learn from your mistakes.”

Lohan’s understanding of how her tumultuous young adulthood has unfolded is similar to her mother’s recounting of her daughter's coming of age during an interview with Matt Lauer on the "Today" show.

“You can tell your children whatever you want to tell them, but they’re going to do what they’re going to do when they turn 18, 19,” Dina told Lauer. “It’s a whole ‘nother world when you’re allowed to live your life and experience things with failure and success and come through it.”

While her mother found fault with the celebrity tabloids for spreading “propaganda” about Lohan, the actress herself admitted that she would look to those publications as a way to find out more about the other stars she admired. Lohan called it “really scary and sad… I would look up to those girls… the Britneys and whatever. And I would be like, I want to be like that.”

From Lohan’s perspective, her problems have been inextricably tied to the company she's kept. “So many people around me would say they cared for the wrong reasons. 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,” Lohan explained to Vanity Fair. “I think just the second I didn’t have [structure] anymore—I was 18, 19—with a ton of money and no one really here to tell me that I couldn’t do certain things … And I see where that’s gotten me now, and I don’t like it.”

To read more of Lohan’s interview, pick up the October issue of Vanity Fair, hitting newsstands on September 7.

    I think these harsh comments are insensitive and cruel, If you take a look around a friend or relative has had a DWI or 2 and its not uncommon the ones who haven't maybe just did not get caught... I think she is a talented young women but maybe misdirected, I am sorry she is having a tough time but I hope it will make her stronger. I wish her well.

    Give the girl a break, most of these negative comments are based purely on envy. Lohan, with all her problems and faults, still has more of a life than most of you could ever hope for and probably wish to ever be able to experience. Fact is, her singing is pretty decent and she IS a capable actress. It isn't her fault that she's been stuck with some pretty crappy projects.
    To me, the losers who really need to get a life are the anonymous negative Nancy's who post their worthless opinions on this board. No one cares who you are, YOU are the ones taking the time out of your fulfilled lives to comment on hers.... she sure as heck isn't concerned with what you're doing, now is she??? Hmmmmmm.....

      Talented? No. She has been in the news on every reputable news channel + the news papers. Beautiful (in the eye of the beholder), young (for now) Ivory tower? I don't think so, most people here are more than likely hard working wage earners who see a young woman (I use that term losely) wasting her life after being (given) the opportunities she has has had & wasted. Yes it makes a lot people angry to see someone so young & arrogant doing this to themselves while blaming others for their problems. Reminds of the GOP!

    She should make adult films, with that body she will be star in no time. Doesn't take any acting skill (she has none), drugs & alcohol run rampant in the industry (she should be right at home), & she's not doing anything different than she has been doing. She had a chance at life few get, and has repeatedly gone back to drinking. She got off lucky with 2 weeks in jail, and rehab. That had been anyone else they would stil be in the slammer.

    Stupidity may have caused Lindsay to pick up the alcohol initially, however addiction took over from there. Addiction is not about stupidity or immorality. It is a disease and needs to be treated. Unfortunately, Lindsay doesn't believe she has the disease and she will reap the consequences of that.

    Deb, you don't have to know here to realize she was given a chance that few people ever receive. She had the world and it was her choice to do what she did with her life, and in the opinion of may she chose un-wisely. As for giving the girl a break, she has had break after break after break and she continues to revert back to her old ways. She has nr respect for the law or society for that matter. She feels the world revolves around her and no one else. Well, now she has to face what she had done to herself. She may indeed turn things now that she has hit rock bottom. I would hope she does turn her life around, however she really has to prove herself to so many people before she is going to be taken seriously ever again. Remember she did this to herself and has no one to blame for herself!

    I cannot believe all the hate for Lindsey. You people don't even know this girl yet you judge, judge, judge!!! She is ONLY 24 (and just barely) and for you all to say that she's a "has been" is really pathetic! She IS a good actress and she has SAID that she KNOWS she's made mistakes. Give the girl a break! How would you react if the entire world was calling you every awful name in the book? It must be devasting. I just hope she doesn't read all this garbage! She doesn't deserve all of this hate from people she's never HURT in any way, shape or form. I hope she DOES get it together. Why wasn't there this much hate for Robert Downey, Jr., or Drew Barrymore? Get a grip people!!! I have hope that she WILL get it together and be able to resume her career. Why can't you all be nice and "tolerant"?

    Lindsay is under the impression, wrongly, that she's somebody important just like Hilton thinks she's oh so important. Aside from tween girls and some dirty old men, I don't the vast majority of American's care at all about them. The best thing they could do to help themselves get right w/themselves is to live a quiet modest life and stop all the attention attempts. I do feel bad for some of these young ladies whose mothers pushed them into the limelight and the party scene so their mothers could part of it at their daughters' expense. Drew Barrymore, Lindsay, Britney – all their mothers were lusting for fame and exposed their too-young daughters to things they never should have been around in their tween and teen years. But once you are old enough to be out on your own, you are responsible for your own decisions. She can't keep blaming her childhood and frankly, even though her father is a creep media hound, her mother is worse in my eyes for acting like Lindsay's friend instead of a protective mother. She would do well to get away from her parents and the public and stay away for a long long time.

    When she was 19 years old, her folks stated they were so proud of her for facing her drug and alcohl problems. Proud of a 19 year old with drug and alcohol problems!!!!??? Her folks were part of the problem for enabling her. Now she's 24, still dealing with drug and alcohol problems and we still read the stories about her. Why? Because she is the Train-wreck-of-the-week, that's why. Nobody gives a hoot about Britney Spears any more now that she's straightened herself out. Get a clue, Missy. Nobody cares about you. We just like to see you fail so we feel better about our own cr*ppy lives. As soon as you straighten yourself out, you'll be yesterday's news and nobody will care. So hurry up and straighten yourself out. I'm waiting for the next train wreck to come along. My guess it'll be Miley Cyrus.

    I am an addictions therapist and think that Lindsay is in denial of a substance abuse problem. Based on what the media has told, Lindsay appears to have a problem. She is incorrect about stating alcoholics need to chronically drink. When people are faced with restrictions, such as legal charges, they are often able to abstain from their use. That doesn't mean they are able to control their use when they do drink/use. She also didn't attend her treatment as recommended. She'll be back to drinking/using in no time.

    People get a grip, How many times did she get into trouble? She is practically still a teenager. How many times do college students get into these same messes. It will all be forgotten in a year and she will continue to get movie gigs because she is being talked about. I think the press creates a sense that this is more of a problem than it is. How long did she wear that ankle bracelet that detects drugs? Probably for a long time and she did not have a daily problem with that. If she had a drug problem that would have been set off multiple times. It went off once because she was at a party and had a drink. So what. A lot of stars party. Partying is not the problem, Partying while young is normal. Get over yourselves.

    Respect isn't given to you, respect is earned. People are sick of hear. I know I am sick of hearing her name. You can't keep blaming others for your mistakes. There comes a time when you have to stand up, admit you made some mistakes, admit you have a problem and get the help. If she can't see she has a problem, then there is no helping her. She needs to remove herself from the people she has been hanging around with and find herself. Nothing wrong with being alone. We can give her all the chances she needs, but how many chances do you give a person who sees nothing wrong??? How much can we take? She had one or two good movies, but she isn't a great actress. She needs to re-evaluate her life, maybe take a break from hollywood and go to college or something. Try something different for a change.

    I remember seeing her in the Parent Trap and Freaky Friday and thinking how much potential she had. I hope she gets it together this time and does day on the right path. But just chalking it up to youth may not be the right way to do it. She needs to acknowledge that when she does do those things, she loses control in the way someone with a problem does...someone like her dad.

    Posted before I read the other post. Lohan needs to prove herself. She goes to Jail two weeks rehab for three and she feels villified. Fact is if she hadn't been arrested she would be Robert downey Jr 11 years ago. The only reason she is straight is because she got caught. And the only reason she stayed straight is she was on probation. I hope she gets it right this time, but she did just miss a court date two months ago, not very responsible.

    The song "Promises, Promises" comes to mind. She'll say whatever she has to in order to jump start her so-called career back. I wish her a lot of luck; however, she is going to have to prove herself first before any company is going to fall into one of her traps. If she is doing a movie or something where she has to be at the studio a certain time, she had better not be late or in her case, just won't show up. If that happens, they should fire her on the spot. She's been given too many chances and this time, I don't think anyone wants to stick their neck out to get burned. We'll just have to wait and see.

    Lets see... She tested positive for narcotics that may or may not have been administered... She was found in contempt of court for writing profanities on the fingersnails and flashing them at the judge every time she didn't like what she heard. She has "sorta" admitted to using illegal drugs in the past (anyone remember the skeletal Linsay of yesteryear?), but she only used them because of peer pressure and youthful ignorance. NONE of her movies were worth the $5 to buy them from the Walmart cheap bin.

    And she "wants the respect back?" Honey, I hate to tell you this but you never had the respect. When you were a teen you were fap material for pubescent boys. When you turned 18 and "stupid" you were the laughing stock of the industry and the butt of the best jokes. And even recently you are still a laughing stock who couldn't even stay in the headlines! You got burried in the tabloids and Interest collumns. You couldn't even compete with a common murder in New York for ratings. So... What respect?

    She has been told since she was small child that she is on a different plane than the rest of humanity and that the rules don't apply to her.

I hope that people can see a girl in need and not just a girl who did drugs and ruined her life. Publicly she has made her announcement she wishes to stop now let the girl prove thats what she'll do. She obviously needs support not people hurting her trying to make her reduce back to what she was. Give her good wishes and good support and maybe who knows, she may surprise us all.

      Just just the thing. She's had the chance, several times, to clean up and act right. And as soon as she thinks she is America's Princess again she slips right back into her old routines of drugs and alcohol. She has had a second, and third, and even fourth chance and has proven that she can't stay straight.

      If she truley wants to get herself straight she needs to get out of Hollywood and into an everyday life. She needs to go get a normal 9-5 job with no expectations of being coddled or protected by directors or agents. She needs to get out of her parents house and get a life outside of the sphere of influence she is in.

      Will she do that? Nope... Cause she is "special" and respected. And her parents will never let her do that because they'd loose the wonderful care-free lifestyle of wealth and luxury that they have been living in since Disney hired her. No, she wants respect given and not earned. She wants everything laid at her feet and no responsibility for her own actions.

    How many of you on here have put yourself out there in a public way (other than writing on here, perhaps) to be scrutinized, publicly criticized, and often villified. If you had had millions and freedom when young would you have handled it well or surrounded yourselves with postive, genuinely caring others – or have even been able to ascertain who was or wasn't. How many of you can't handle your own families now, nevermind having family members constantly in the press talking about you, trying to regain power over you so that they can benefit. How many of you are so enlightened that you can wish another person well and not be vicious and wish ill will upon another who is obviously being tested – as we all are. Mini Talibans are you? What would you do given power over her? Would you have loving hearts or be mean spirited control freaks to put her in her place? It is fascinating watching people, even online, who make scathing remarks about others while they themselves do what? Contribute to society, volunteer, are illustrative examples of ethical behaviour with genuinely loving hearts?

      Some criticized her, others say prove it, and none of us believe she turned responsible over night. She just missed a court date and her monitor may have detected alcohol the night of a party she attended. Let's give her enough rope, maybe just maybe she will do the right thing.

There will be no meaningfull change, until she can look in the mirror and genuinely accept that she hates whats happening, and understands that she is responsible for changing it without deflecting her problems on someone else.

    The sad thing is, the girl can act. Yes, "Just My Luck" was a lackluster "adult role" debut,"I Know Who Killed Me" was terrible, and she didn't have much to contribute to "Prairie Home Companion". That doesn't erase how good she was in "The Parent Trap" or "Mean Girls". It's quite possible she should can her agent. And she should definitely try to live the kind of private life that stays out of the tabloids for at least a year. But I'd actually be happy to see her turn it around, something I can't say of a lot of her party companions.

    LOHAN things will come back to you around the year 2013. You will have to deal with some controversy for a while then around 2012 things will settle down. Stay focused and try to get some sleep. You have great potential beyond what some of these people have said about you. The worst has come and the best is yet to come but it depends on your network. Remember that your network is your net worth.

    Better people in your life will make you a better person. A different breed of people around you may detour you from the chaos you are currently experiencing and place you into a position of renewed success.

    You could even find yourself hosting a Television program in the future that could give you a completely different edge on the image you presently have. Although you may have trouble for a season in America there will be those in Europe who will embrace you.

    You will always have an audience. The trick is simple. Keep yourself in motion. Time will heal everything.

People such as this person lack respect and love for themselves, thus they make destructive choices in their lives. Once they learn to truly respect and love themselves, and understand their true meaning, then they can start to think about receiving love and respect from others and also they will be able to do the same for their fans.

      Oh Puh-lease. We don't listen to her. Obviously you haven't read other's comments about this article. NO ONE is hearing her or believing the garbage falling out her mouth...again. Her parents causing trauma. Get a grip on reality and stop supporting a young lady that continues to make the worst choices she possibly can. She thinks much more highly of herself than she ought. She still doesn't want to face the reality that she is the root of her own problems. Blaming your parents or others only goes so far before you start looking like a cry baby. She still can't believe she's lowly enough to actually make mistakes, choose wrong choices and then get caught doing it. The ONLY reason I read this article was in hopes of finding one shread of evidence that of anything she's gone through might have sunk in and actually forced her to get off her little pink birthday pony and grow up. She was a cute little child actress and very well might have had some sort of chance at an adult acting career. The problem was she's never wanted to grow up. (Those lovely nails of hers in court, case in point.) The article clearly demonstrates that she is angry, or at the very least resentful, that she doesn't have whatever sliver of respect she seems to think we as the public owe her and begrudges the fact that she has to get it back by not partying and staying home, as if that would make us respect her more. She can still do her crap away from the cameras. The only problem is she won't get the press she so desperately desires. She pushes the truth of her own situation off on other people and blames them for her problems even now. I was hoping to find that she had actually found a way to reality but, truth be told, I wasn't disappointed to find that she is par for her own course. I'm just wishing the media would simply stop giving her the press that actually gives her a voice. I'm really tired of the whining.

    the problem with Lindsey is that she tries way too hard. She takes herself far too seriously, and yet makes stupid mistakes but expects everyone to love and respect her as an actress? Too many female artists/actresses spend far too much time being self-indulgent and taking themselves far too seriously, and then wonder why they aren't getting the respect that they feel they deserve. It's called working hard, being humble, and not taking one's self too seriously. Lindsay doesn't seem to be willing to do any of this.

There will come a day when she says "I screwed up", she will begin to become the adult she always thought she was. On that day she will realize that her friends are the ones sucking her life's blood from her and those very friends will be the first to abondon her again. Then and only then will she have a chance at success. If that doesn't happen soon her final destination will be the cold table of some city morgue.

I saw a comment above that says that this interview took place a few years back but the thing is – NOTHING HAS CHANGED. Addicts of all kinds blame others for their troubles – that's the nature of the illness. She is no victim of anything other than her own actions.

      And, she mentions Britney...anyone look at Britney lately? She may have shaved her hair off but because of HER FATHER she is still alive and still a mother to her young sons. And, her career is off like a rocket again – along with her head being screwed on straight. Too bad it couldn't happen to both Paris (Ha! Chewing gum my a**!) and to Lindsay.

But this is America and everyone deserves to get back up , dust themselves off and try again. The problem dear lindsey is that you haven't dusted your old self off yet. I wish the best for you.

      What happened? Did she get laid off? Oh yeah, that's right. Her career went up her nose.

      Dan got it right. Additionally, there are now young actresses that have taken every role that she hopes to have. Posing half naked and dressing up like Marilyn Monroe every other day is not an acting career. Lindsey traded her career for the fame. Does she need the Gaga album? It's fleeting. Her 15 minutes are up. It's time for her to go away or go on reality television with the other has beens. No one wants to work with someone who won't show up and then complains about how unfair everyone is to them.

      What a stupid comment. The woman has starred in some very good movies and she is, despite her many faults, a good actress. The jealousy in your comment, and in those of the idiots agreeing with you, is pathetic.

      Wa, wa, wa, wa, wa; who cares? Floozy actresses are a dime a dozen. Let her get a job at McDonalds.

      Good comment Dan. I always look for news items about Lindsey Lo-Life so I can have a good laugh. She was stopped last night by the cops again but let off with a warning. Too bad. I have $20 that says she's arrested again by Halloween. Any takers? Someone called her a great actress? You're kiiding, right? She had one half-way decent movie 10 years ago (Parent Trap) which I didn't see and didn't want to, and now she's done that terrible b-movie "Machete'" and slated to 'perform' (LOL) in the story of Linda Lovelace....hahaha..perfect for her.

      Yes exactly. What "career" does that ugly ginger think she had?!? Take away all of that hair dye and the gallons of makeup and shes nasssssty. I hope her "career" never bounces back. Unfortunately that's not how hollywood works. For example that no talent a$$clown "the situation" reported earnings for this year will break $5 million. Anyone else wanna travel through the sewer lines to drown him in the atlantic?

      Only thing she might be good in is a photo spread in Playboy.Something where she can keep her yap shut.That's if she can stay away from drugs for a few weeks.
