Lindsay Lohan brags how she’s never been drunk on set, says jail was a blessing in disguise, claims she wants to adopt a boy one day, and advises against drinking and driving in a new interview in promotion of her film Liz & Dick, and RadarOnline.com has the details.
The 26-year-old, who’s been frequently compared to Elizabeth Taylor on the promotional trail for her new TV movie, tells US magazine there’s at least one difference between she and the Hollywood great.
“Elizabeth was drunk on sets. I’ve never been drunk on set, ever. I did my time and I respect the law.”
Lindsay said she learned some life lessons while locked up in 2010, particularly when she was all by her lonesome.
“As hard as it was for me to admit it when I was in denial, it was a blessing in disguise,” she said of her stint behind bars. “I was in solitary confinement and I took the time to really get into the right headspace.”
She said she also made the best of a particularly bad situation during her multiple stints in rehab, referring to another old Hollywood icon in the process.
“Marilyn Monroe went to an institution and said, ‘I may not belong here like the world thinks I do, but I might as well take what I can get here and use it and help other people,’” LiLo said. “I think that’s what everyone should take from those experiences.”
Asked if she wants to have kids, Lindsay said, “Yes. I want to adopt a son.”
Despite her issues that have made for a jagged career path that’s seen her fall from a potential A-lister to the TV movie comeback trail, the redhead says she has no regrets.
Without her past, Lindsay says she “wouldn’t be able to cry in scenes at the drop of a hat.
“I have it tattooed: LIVE WITHOUT REGRETS. I’m not saying I wanted to go to a jail cell, but I’ve drawn from all of it.”
Lastly, asked if she could go back in time 10 years and advise her 16-year-old self, Lindsay said, “Don’t drink and drive. And be careful who you surround yourself with.”
Liz & Dick premieres on Lifetime November 25 at 9/8c.
