Lindsay Lohan is the cover feature for the February 2009 edition of Interview magazine. She looks sultry in a black & white shoot: These are my fave parts from the interview:
"I want to give back. I want to do all the things that will make me feel fulfilled. But whenever I do those things, people think it's a press stunt or something. Because they do find me, and there's really no way of hiding from that."
"I just feel as though it's become a situation where people have manifested this caricature of who I am, and they act as if there's no real person inside of it."
"I can't even have a conversation with most people of my generation about that, because they'd be like, "Okay, she's a freak. Something's wrong with her."
"And the worst part is, in terms of what people see of me, I have become this girl who just loves to be photographed, doesn't know how to focus, doesn't know how to work on set, just loves the attention, knows how to go out at night, knows how to party. And you know what? I was 20 years old. I never went to college. And I lived maybe six months out of my life like that, doing something wrong, and then I stopped. God forbid I should have ever learned my lesson."
"Heath Ledger once said something about this to me. He said: "It build's you up to knock you down, and that's all it is. And you just have to see if you can stand through it."
". . I always wanted to take the blame. I've always been apologetic for other people's faults."
"I feel like the modeling industry is a little bit more accepting of women who make mistakes. They appreciate the idea of icons."
"To be able to have an effect on someone's life is extraordinary . . . But now all the other shit has ruined it."
"But what hurts me the most is that I work just as hard as any other actress around my age, like Scarlett Johansson, but I just don't get the opportunities that they get because people are so distracted by the mess that I created in my life."
