Lohan denies addictions, blames dad for trauma
Los Angeles, Aug 31 : Troubled actress Lindsay Lohan, who will feature on the cover page of Vanity Fair’s October issue, denies being dependent on prescription drugs and blames her father for her trauma.
Lohan spoke about her alcohol use and her history with her father, Michael Lohan, to the magazine prior to serving two weeks of her 90-day jail sentence and her in-patient residency in rehab, reports theinsider.com.
“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 said.
Alcohol and drug abuse accusations were tackled, to which Lohan denied being addicted to either.
She blamed her immaturity in her teenage years for “dabbling in certain things” when she had newly gained her independence and wealth in Los Angeles.
But she denied accusations of being dependent on prescription drugs, saying, “I’ve never abused prescription drugs. I never have never in my life. I have no desire to.”
Lindsay blamed her father, saying he caused “trauma” in her life.
Michael showed up at Lindsay’s court hearing where she was sentenced to 90 days in jail and 90 days in rehab. She was torn about his presence, saying, “The worst part of it is you turn around and you see your dad crying and normally you’d be, like, happy that your father’s there. But then he has to go and do an interview right after.”
Her younger sister Ali was also in the courtroom and Lohan found it “heartbreaking” to witness her sister in tears.
The fallen starlet hopes to shine bright again one day and remains optimistic about her future in acting.
“I know that I’m a damn good actress,” she said confidently. “And I know that in my past I was young and irresponsible, but that’s what growing up is. You learn from your mistakes.”
