Lindsay Lohan Admits: 'I Was Irresponsible' And 'I Want My Career Back!'

Posted Sun, September 5, 2010 2:45pm EDT

Do YOU think Lindsay deserves a second chance?

In her a brand-new interview conducted a week before she went to jail, Lindsay Lohan finally addresses the tabloid circus that has been her life for the past few years, placing most of the blame on her father Michael Lohan. “I think my biggest focus for myself is learning how to continue to get through the trauma that my father has caused in my life,” she tells the October issue of Vanity Fair. And even though, she recognizes she has problems to work through, she denies ever being an alcoholic or abusing prescription drugs.

She also recognizes that she needed a firm parental hand in her life, which she never had: “I didn’t have any structure.”

Here’s more of what Lindsay had to say in her revealing interview:

On the future of her acting career:

“I don’t care what anyone says. I know that I’m a damn good actress. And I know that in my past I was young and irresponsible, but that’s what growing up is. You learn from your mistakes.”

On accusations that she’s an alcoholic:

“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.”

On rumors that she abused prescription drugs:

“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 moving to LA and wanting to be a tabloid train wreck:

“It was very go-go-go and I had a lot of responsibility; and I think just the second I didn’t have [structure] anymore. I was 18, 19 with a ton of money and no one really here to tell me that I couldn’t do certain things. … And I see where that’s gotten me now, and I don’t like it. … I would look up to those girls … the Britneys and whatever. And I would be like, ‘I want to be like that.'”

On getting mixed up in the wrong crowd:

“So many people around me would say they care for the wrong reason. A lot of people were pulling from me, taking from me and not giving. I had a lot of people there for me for, you know, the party.”

But the most shocking revelation of all, at least in my opinion, is that a paparazzo tells the magazine that Lindsey PAYS him to take her picture. “If I called her up right now and said I’ll give you $10,000, she’d come right down,” a photographer tells the magazine. Granted, this is not a totally new phenomenon in Hollywood (far from it, actually) but if it’s true, it’s awfully hypocritical for someone like Lindsay who speaks out against the paparazzi every chance she gets.

Exclusive! Michael Lohan’s response:

HollywoodLife.com reached out to Michael Lohan, who had this to say about Lindsay’s Vanity Fair interview:

“[Lindsay] did this interview before she went to jail and rehab. As seen and proven before, with both Dina and Lindsay, it’s one lie after another. I feel sorry for them that they couldn’t hold themselves accountable at the time the article was written, but I feel that maybe after all Lindsay has been through, at least she (Lindsay) has changed.

Unfortunately, I think we have all seen and heard it so many times before. People with drinking, drug or pyschological issues always pad the blame, find excuses and/or create situations to dismiss what the real problems are or who the person(s) to blame truly are.

On numerous occasions, I have openly and honestly admitted what I have done and my part of the problems. So it boils down to whether people want read and believe someone who has been openly honest, or others who have been proven to have lied time after time.

As for the writer of the article, both Lisa Bloom and I responded to what Lindsay and Dina said prior to the article being written, but as usual with Vanity Fair, they only print one side. Our responses and nothing we addressed was written in the article.”

I personally couldn’t care less of her private life. She can do whatever she wants.
But she’s talented and she’s working in the show biz since the age of 9 and she makes my life better with her talent: plain and simple she’s a STAR and that’s all I care about her.

her private life is between herself and herself. None of my business (at all)

She’s so sorry and learned so much that within days of her freedom she hits a baby stroller pushed by the nanny and stops for all of a few seconds? And she wants a “second chance?” The only second chance anybody should get is the court should get a second chance to make her stay in jail like they should’ve done the first time around – that is after waiting 3 years to make her pay the penalty for what she did.

If she ever actually made a real effort to turn her life around, a real effort meaning that she needs to keep it up for at least a year instead of just saying she’s making a change them completely reverting a week later, then sure. Everyone deserves another chance if they genuinely work their hardest to fix what’s wrong with their life.

But she hasn’t done that, hopefully for her sake just ‘yet’ but maybe she never will at all, so for now she hasn’t earned that chance.

She doesn’t deserve any more chances in Hollywood. Maybe in the Pornography Industry, however. Then she can drink and do whatever drugs she wants.

If I hear any more B.S. about this scumbag I am going to hurl my guts out. Someone please put her out of her misery and out of the headlines. Pure sleaze. Why do you care? Do you have a life? She doesn’t. Maybe there’s still hope for all of you. Maybe not. Again, who cares?

You know their are a lot more young talented actors out their that haven’t had that chance and aren’t on drugs and partying all the time give them a chance. Give them the parts that they would ordinarily give to Lindsay because I think she had enough chances and she took nothing seriously she took every thing as a joke. SHE DIDN’T SEVER HER SENTENCE SHE GOT OUT OF REHAB EARLY, IF THAT WAS ANY ONE ELSE THAT DIDN’T HAVE A NAME YOU THINK THEY WOULD BE GETTING OUT EARLY!!!SO NO SHE DOESN’T DESERVE A SECOND CHANCE…..

In order for Lindsey to become a better person and not create situations which bring attention to her, she MUST WANT TO CHANGE HER LIFE STYLE instead of pouring gasoline on the fire she has created or just believe she CRAVES ATTENTION AND DOESN’T KNOW ANY OTHER WAY TO GET IT!

If there are people out there, and there are, who want to defend her actions as being mature, responsible, knowing the “difference between right and wrong” then those people should also join Lindsey in prison since these people “can’t see the forest for the trees”! Anyone who thinks Lindsey deserves a second chance are probably “Lindsey Clones” who are just like her, irresponsible, don’t understand the difference between right & wrong, probably still believe in Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny!!!!

The worse she behaves the more news coverage she gets. She’s a turd that needs to be flushed from the toilet bowl that is our national media. Her last hit movie was when she was 14 years old. It’s been a decade of second chances for this idiot. Move on from her and give the coverage to someone who actually deserves it.

Yes she deserve anoher chance and the sentence imposed by the publicity seeking Judge when Lindsay done everything to rectify her mistakes was very harsh and excessive.
Maybe she was waiting for this to come out before she done her post jail and rehab interview so she wasn’t saying the same stuff?
She isn’t an alcoholic she just likes to drink but CAN stop.

Lindsay committed a crime. She broke the Law. She is no better then any other citizen in the US. Lindsay got off easy for the crimes she committed. She isn’t going to change her life. She is just going to hide her bad behavior behind closed doors away from the public. She still has her self in titled attitude like Paris Hilton. Unfortunately she will have a career in Hollywood. She will make millions. If Lindsay actually realizes how wrong she has been. And acts like a 24 year old grown up and less like a wild reckless party girl.Then maybe people will take her seriously.

You’re joking, right? Addicts like her won’t stop. For media-hungry D-list celebs, rehab is just marking-time until their next media blitz. Face reality: Lohan has NO TALENT and NO PROSPECTS. And just like Paris Hilton, rehab is a joke to these media-junkies – even bad press is good press in her eyes. TMZ must be bored with her by now. I was done with her years ago. Maybe hitting rock bottom would be the best thing for Lohan. Why does the public and the media insist on dwelling on these celebrity scumbags??

Foreva, you think Lohan isn’t an alcoholic? Who do you think you’re kidding??? Do you actually believe what her PR lackeys are saying or do you have any sense of reality left??
