Lindsay Lohan: ‘I’m a Damn Good Actress’

August 31st, 2010 // 55 Comments

Before being sentenced to jail/rehab for a four-week spa treatment and pedi, Lindsay Lohan sat down for an interview with Vanity Fair where she opened up about her alleged drug use and commitment to acting. And by opened up I of course mean spewed a bunch of bullshit like that chick from The Exorcist. “HOLLYWOOD MADE ME DO DRUGS! FUCK ME, JESUS!” *horf horf horf horf spin spin spin spin* Via Us Magazine:

On everyone (*cough*Dina*cough*) putting drugs in front of her, so it’s not her fault:
“I’ve never abused prescription drugs. I never have — never in my life. 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.”

On looking up to Britney Spears:
When she first moved to Los Angeles, she says tabloids were her main source of news and that was “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.”

On acting:
“I want my career back. I know that I’m a damn good actress, and it’s been my passion since I was a child, and I know that when I care about something, I put 100 percent and more into it.”

On not going to the clubs because they’re stupid anyway:
“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. I don’t care. It’s the same thing every time.”

And to show how committed Lindsay Lohan is to focusing on her career by not going to clubs, she was already pulled over Sunday night for running a stop light to get to Marmont as soon as possible.

    What were those “damn good movies” she’s talking about? Oh, that’s right: Herbie the Love Bug.

    “Damn good”? No, that’s pushing it Lindsay, get your head out of your ass. You were though, in fact, a pretty charming actress back in the Mean Girls days, but unfortunately, that’s all over. 1) Because you’re not cute and young anymore, and 2) Because you’ve tarnished your own name in unimaginable ways. Your best bet at this point is going away for 3-5 years and pushing a comeback story.

    Or a sex tape, if you’re just looking for money. Make a sex tape and I swear you would never have to worry about money ever again.

    Is she gonna play in ‘Little house on the prairie’?

  11. Turd Ferguson

    It’s sad that this bitch was raised with no family values, no common sense and without any role models whatsoever. She is delusional and a compulsive liar. Someone needs to knock princess off her high horse – she is just another spoiled brat with a bloated sense of entitlement.

    • if she were under my roof she’d have gone accross my knee enough times to get it by now. but.. she was under michael and dina’s. with those role models give her til 30 to get her shit together. and it may be pregnancy that forces it. but i have full confidence she’ll mature.

      • It’s not a maturation process that’s in question – neither is it an issue of a slow learning curve. She is utterly incapable of processing the fact that if she says one thing and then immediate does another, people will focus on her actions rather than on her words. For her, what she says is the only reality.

        That bit about “if it takes not going out of clubs (that aren’t fun anyhow) so that people will focus on her work, so be it” is a massive disconnect – she’s been coming up with variants of that for the past 5 years and it’s getting old. Her clubbing and partying during the shoot of Herbie and then being hospitalized for “exhaustion” and “asthma” disrupted the schedule and pissed people off. That was five years ago. She didn’t get it then when she immediately stated that clubbing was boring and she was a serious actress. She said it, that shoud take care of it. lThe same thing happened during the shooting of Georgie Rule a year later when she was called out – publically, in the press – by a disgusted studio exec for the same shit. She didn’t get it then, either. She claimed she was dedicated to her craft and clubbing was bad for her because she had asthma and that warning was just WRONG – so that should take care of it! Not too surpising – when she was called a thief for swiping some girl’s unique $11K coat from a club and was photographed wearing it, Dina Lohan denied she ever had any such coat in her possession. See, it’s not about what we do, it’s always about what we say.

        So she will never get it. For her, the carefully worded and sincere (to her) observation makes it all better – and hey presto! that’s all that’s needed to mend her career! Now, off to Butter!


    I read somewhere else this morning that she is becoming a fashion journalist. I ask you, how can someone who dresses as bad as she does, think for one moment that she should be involved in fashion? Her outfits are atrocious.

    Actually I think she was a very good actress, she just made some wrong turns and focused on other things rather than her acting. Look at the home and fucked-up family she comes from, that says a great deal.

    And experimenting is fine when you’re 19. But not 24. Lindsay needs to grow up and get her life on track. Sadly she probably never will.

    • Dishy

      Agree. She’s a good comedian/actress. She’s really screwed up, but people can change with enough motivation. Maybe she’s been thru enough.

      She can prove it by knuckling down and getting to work. Take no-pay roles in indie films. Do charity. Go to the gym every day.

      Hope she does. Tina Fey tried to save here a while back. Maybe LiLo can mend that fence.

    Name me one good movie she was in, just one. I mean a movie where she was “good”. I don’t wanna hear that she was good in Mean Girls or Freaky Fucking Friday. I mean serious fucking good acting. She was ok at best in all her fucking films, bottom line is that she sucks as an actress and singer. Just like how JLo sucks in her acting abilities as well as singing. They each are famous for one thing only–JLo for her enormous but now enormous and sagging ASS. Lindsay for her fucking coke snorting hijinks. Thats it! Other than that they have absolutely no talent whatsoever. I know, I know, JLo is not part of this story but she is part of today’s hollywood suckiness.



  16. TS

    OK she might have been a decent actress and may be mildly attractive. But the bottom line is, NOBODY LIKES YOU LINDSAY!!! You are an ingrate. And no matter how good an actress you are, if nobody has any respect for you, and if nobody likes you, then you are a liability to any director or producer who counts on the public to spend money to view their product. You say you want your career back, as if someone stole it from you. You blew it with your personal choices in life. So quit whining and quit being such a martyr. Your situation is entirely your fault so quit blaming everyone else. Stupid bitch.

    As if she’s actually reading this…

    Right. Lindsay is such a good actress that she has lots of acting work. Doesn’t she?

    But when you see Lindsay performing in one doctor’s office after another and conning each of them out of a narcotics prescription, you have to believe that she knows something about acting.

    She is a good actress – MEAN GIRLS is good and she’s very good in it.

    FREAKY FRIDAY -again she pulls off very good physical comedy when she’s acting as Jamie Lee Curtis in her daughter’s body.

    PARENT TRAP – she’s 12 and not only does she admirably pull off a dual role, making each sister distinct – but she pretty much nails a British accent. She was 12.

    And overall she’s charming in all of them. A bunch of you keyboard tough guys like to imagine you’re charming yourselves, but try being “charming” for 24 consecutive takes and at all hours of the morning, while remembering your lines and all the other assorted distractions working actors have to put up with during a shoot.

    None of the above movies are classics of the genre, no one’s claiming she’s the best actress that ever walked the Earth – but enough with the lies and the denial of pure facts – Lindsey was and if she can pull herself together, likely still has it in her to be a fine actor.

    If you want to hate a complete stranger because they’re addicted to dope and booze and drama and self-destructive behavior – Go ahead and hate, but don’t deny the talent that there on film.

    Final note – when she’s healthy and not strung out and half starved – Lindsey’s also an extremely attractive young woman. So again hate her if you must because you disapprove of how she conducts herself, but don’t lie despite the evidence right in front of your eyes and claim she’s ugly.

    • BettyNuggs

      Three mediocre films and eight horrendous films does not equate to a damn good actress. It equates to someone who has been given too many opportunities and failed too many times.

    • sobrietyisacrutch

      Hey Linds! I see they’re letting you near a keyboard again. Or at least your ghost writer.

    • TS

      But the fact remains, nobody likes her and nobody respects her. And it’s all her own fault.

      • crazypants

        Fine, no one likes her and nobody respects her. But she is/was a GOOD ACTRESS and she is/can be PRETTY.

        Robert Downey Jr was for years a train wreck of a drunken junkie and once cleaned up and focused has delivered the goods.

        Lindsey may not have RDJ’s level of talent – but then again she may – but her fucked up parents and her shitty lifestyle and all the bullshit that comes from being young and fucked up in LA have stalled her career and her skill set.

        But from those first few non-partying years, her output was commendable and most importantly, enviable.

        Let’s not drink the haterade, any young working actor/actress would’ve sold their souls to be in any of Lindsey’s projects. And she got the job done and her movies did well and she made the studios money.

        If she was the ugly no-talent, dime a dozen starlet that the haters make her out to be – then she wouldn’t have been cast in 8 movies before she was 20 years old.

        Lindsey ain’t Picasso – but just to make a point – Picasso was a serial cheating, abusive fuckhead of a human being – but don’t say the man was a lousy artist.

    “im a damn good actress” , “Im a damn good at telling lies?”
    I believe you could draw a conclusion that she is acting all the time which would mean that in some ways she is lying, if not to herself then to everyone else. She has no real value to society.

    p.s. Linds you have never been a good actress. you have a tolerable voice and are generally pleasant to look at most the time. there is always another barely legal decent looking famale to take your place. saying you are a good actress means about as much as me saying im god. kinda pointless unless you can prove it! (and you cant prove it)

    • Kelley

      Pleasant to look at ? Are ya pissed ? Yikes … she looks like the dog’s breakfast most days. Badly dyed hair, fake hair to boot, overly-inflated duck lips, outfits that look like they came out of a dumpster … fuck, I want to shower after looking at her !!

      • Compound9

        I should not have said “most of the time” I should have said almost never. I agree with you you that she looks about as enticing as the puss from a bad Venereal Disease. I guess i was referencing the movie mean girls, with all the make-up and wardrobe people to polish that turd so shiny it’s almost unrecognizable, she looked okay.

        Lacy Chabert. Beautiful. The only reason I was able to tolerate Lindsay’s So called acting is because Lacy Chabert Is amazing.

  30. I laughed so hard that she thinks that she can act. I saw at the Houston Zoo a monkey farted so loud he performed better than Lindsey Lohan.

  31. calebatticus

    it is not total bullshit. she said, “and I know that when I care about something, I put 100 percent and more into it.” Thats why she got addicted to drugs and alcohol and was not just a casual user.

  32. captain america

    please wake her up out of this nightmare!!!

  33. captain america

    wake her up out of this nightmare, folks!!

  34. JollyJumJuck

    Clearly Lohan has never met Consequences or Karma. Apparently these two lazy siblings cannot be bothered with her.

  35. cc

    It was very rude of her to blow a huge, rancid fart in the face of the girl walking behind her.

    At least they weren’t in an elevator.
