Lindsay Lohan: I Want People To Forget My Past So I Can Work Again

Tue, March 1, 2011 8:26pm EDT by 21 Comments

Lindsay Lohan wants to move on, says “personal instances” got in the way of her career path!

Lindsay Lohan says she is once again trying to make amends for her past so that she can get on with her life and focus on rebuilding her once-promising career. The actress gave a very candid interview to Extra, her first since leaving rehab, and expressed her desire for people to look past her recent legal troubles.

The actress confesses she doesn’t want the world to remember her for her DUI, car crash, drug abuse and jail days. “[I want to create] great movies, great films, [and tell] great stories,” LiLo tells Extra. “That’s what I’ve aspired to do my whole life and personal instances in my life got in the way. But, I dont want that to be known for that anymore.”

Despite being out on bail on a felony,  the 24-year-old says she’s doing quite well. “I feel great! I feel happy,” she says. “There’s always bumps that we have in the road and as long as I’m focusing on this one thing that I know I need to put first in my life — which is my recovery — I’m doing good and that’s what’s most important for me.”

And Lindsay has a new way of looking at things. “There’s not a second that goes by where if I do something wrong, I will immediately look at the situation and say, ‘You know what? That was wrong of me. I’m sorry, I shouldn’t have done that,'” she explains.

Lindsay also talks about her days in rehab and how she spent her time. “I enjoyed writing, reading, talking to other people and hearing different people’s stories,” she said. “That’s always interesting to me — relating to them is a nice thing.”

But her career is what kept Lindsay looking forward. She admits that she missed working while in rehab. “I miss being on set. I really do miss it,” she says.

And Lindsay realizes it won’t be easy to get the film industry to accept her again. “There’s going to be a lot of steps that I have to go through to kind of prove myself again and get the trust from people that I respect to work with,” she notes. “I’m willing to do what I have to do to get there because that’s my passion.”

Lindsay’s apologetic interview doesn’t erase her grand-theft charges for allegedly stealing a $2,500 necklace from a Venice, Calif. jewelry store. If she is found guilty, pleads no contest to the charges or accepts a plea deal, she will face jail time again.

Ms. Lohan thinks the minor things in her life get in the way. Try having my memories. Raped & beaten as a child. One bad decision after another as an adult. As much as I would love to forget, that’s not the way life works. You get one chance, and its not always what we want for ourselves.

I agree, those problems seem rather minor compared to yours. But in life you get as many chances as you create. Some people have a much more difficult road to navigate without a doubt. I know you suffer. You also need some luck… lots of hard work and drive. Most could find a way somehow but often circumstance prevails. There are countless examples of others who went from the gutter to the top or somewhere in between, so there’s no doubt things can change. So, to say you get one chance limits what’s within.

Hey, baby sister, it’s not your past that is keeping you down. It’s your current attitude. There is no path to success. Success is the path. Stop the bad now before that becomes how you look.

I thought that was a pic of Heidi Montag!!

Can we believe any of what she says? Can we believe anything that any “star” says? Do you think that she rehearsed her lines before the interview?

LL, actions speak louder than words

It’s already being reported that a surveillance video from the boutique where Lohan is accused of stealing a $2500 necklace may actually exonerate her.

The surveillance video clearly shows Lindsay trying on the necklace, checking herself out in the mirror, and appearing to ask her friend and the store owner for their opinion.

— That said, I always knew something was fishy about the story that she simply put it on and walked out with it. Had I tried that, I would have been tackled by guards etc. This is a store well known for allowing celebs to wear their jewelry in order to get promotion in return and it makes sense that she understood she was allowed to wear it. Now with the new footage it’s all fitting together. Moral of the story is that internet publications love to make up stories for views and profit. They like to bait stupid people into saying nasty things, knowing that people love to do that.

Spot on correct! She’s an AMAZING talent. I want her to succeed as much as anyone.

She needs some good people around her and good press to boot, cheering her on (HL…you listening?)

By the way LiLo…look in the mirror. You’re aging faster than you should. Stop the drugs, stop the alcohol, stop the 22 hour days. Get healthy, get rest, and be on time.

People are willing to forgive and forget. The big problem with LiLo is SHOWING UP FOR WORK.

Hollywood is a job like anything else. Be there, on time.
