In an interview with TV's "Extra," Lindsay Lohan reveals that she's anxious to get her career back on track and doesn't want to be known for her off-screen escapades.
"I miss being on set. I really do miss it," she said. "I know there's going to be a lot of steps that I have to go through to prove myself again and get the trust from people I respect...but I'm willing to do what I have to do to get there because that's my passion."
"That's what I aspired to do my whole life, and personal instances in my life have gotten in the way," she explains. "But I don't want that to be what I am known for, the tabloid stuff, that's not important to me. I don't like the attention. I want my attention to come through in my films and the work that I'm doing, not from going to the hair salon."
Despite all her dramas — including facing jail time for the alleged theft of a $2,500 necklace — Lohan says she is happy these days. "There's always things, you know, bumps we have in the road," she says, "and as long as I am focusing on the one thing I need to put first in my life, which is my recovery and stuff, and I'm doing good... that's most important for me."
