Lindsay Lohan fights drugs and bulimia

lohan-vanity-fair.jpgIn a move so shocking that I was shocked until I died from getting shocked to death, Lindsay Lohan has admitted in an interview with Vanity Fair that she dabbled with drugs and bulemia.

“I knew I had a problem and I couldn’t admit it,” Lohan, the star of movies such as “Mean Girls” and “Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen,” told Vanity Fair magazine.

“I was making myself sick. I was sick and I had people sit me down and say ‘You’re going to die if you don’t take care of yourself,”‘ she said in the magazine’s latest issue, which hit newsstands on Wednesday.

Lohan said she used drugs “a little” but quickly tried to retract the admission and denied that she had taken cocaine. “I don’t want people to think that I’ve done … you know what I mean? It’s kind of a sore subject,” she said.

Lohan’s publicist called Vanity Fair the day after the interview to try to get the confession omitted from the article, the New York Post reported.

In an apparent U-turn from interviews last year, the actress admitted fighting the eating disorder bulimia, which made her lose weight at an alarming rate.

It was when she saw footage of herself on a “Saturday Night Live” television appearance looking skeletal that Lohan became aware of how ill she really was.

“I saw that ‘SNL’ after I did it. My arms were disgusting. I had no arms,” she said.

Her physical condition led to a two-week hospitalization with a swollen liver and kidney infection last year.

Lohan was admitted to hospital on Monday after experiencing breathing difficulties in her hotel room in Miami, spokeswoman Leslie Sloane told Reuters.

It’s always infuriating when a celebrity admits to something the entire world has already known for years. Why won’t these lying bastards save us some trouble and admit to it straight off the bat. It would be like the sun coming out in a press release tomorrow and telling everybody it was big and hot and more than a two hour car drive away.
