Story of the Day: Lindsay Lohan Says She Isn’t to Blame for Trying Drugs

Posted by PZ on November 23rd, 2012

Lindsay Lohan believes that she isn’t to blame for her experimentation with drugs and drinking. She says that it’s “human nature” to be curious about things like that, but it took a while for her to figure out that it wasn’t healthy or right, and that those around her were influencing her negatively:

“Kids go through ups and downs, try cigarettes, drugs and drinking. It’s human nature. It took a while but it’s like, What was I thinking? Why did I allow so many sycophants and bad influences to be around me? I was lonely and I didn’t realize it. That’s why I came back home to New York. I never feel lonely there. I can see my family and I have really good people in my life.”

Speaking on her life spinning out of control, Lindsay says she was constantly on the news and that being in the public eye quickly became exhausting:

“I was a teenager and everything I did was on the news. I would have been in college then. I’m not defending it because I chose to be in the public eye. But it got exhausting. I still don’t think it was a bad thing that I was going out a lot. When I got in trouble, I owned up to it.”

Commenting on how she’s feeling about life right now, Lindsay says:

“I’m happy. I just did three movies in a row and I’m not even tired. I want to do the next one. It took a while to get back to that.”
