Lindsay Is Talking To EVERYONE!

| Filed under: Lindsay LohanExclusives!Drugs

Thank God Lohan's back in the game. Now we can (hopefully) talk about Britney less!

She's out of rehab and Lindsay is talking to anyone who will listen.

The recovering actress just sat down with In Touch Weekly for a NEW interview and PerezHilton.com is bringing it to you exclusively!

Lohan talks about her time in rehab, what she hopes for her future, her upcoming trip to Africa, reconciling with her dad Michael and reveals that she has a new boyfriend.

Who is she? What did Lindsay say?

CLICK HERE to read the In Touch interview!!!

At 11 p.m. on a Sunday night, Lindsay Lohan is curled up on a chair at the Sundance Resort in Utah. Makeup-free, wearing a gray sweat suit and with her long blond hair still damp from the shower, the 21-year-old is giving her first post rehab interview exclusively to In Touch. Refreshingly frank during the hour-long chat on October 7, the only topic she shies away from is her romance with Riley Giles, the 25-year-old snowboarder from California she met during her two-month stay at Cirque Lodge in Utah. But she confirms their relationship and admits that her love life, like everything else, is looking up these days.

In Touch Weekly (ITW): How will your life be different now?

Lindsay Lohan (L.L.): The biggest thing is not being in LA and staying away from the nightlife. Going out all the time was very self-destructive. Partying and having all of those pictures taken distracts from the work that I do. It’s not why I started acting. I didn’t get into acting to be written about. It kind of just happened — so I accept that it’s my life. But there are some things that I can do to make changes and grow up. I want to act like a woman rather than a teenager. I am doing the best I can.

ITW: You’d been at Cirque Lodge since August. Why did you stay longer than you needed to?

L.L.: There is that urge to want to leave early, obviously, and be back in the real world. But it was safer at Cirque and I was learning more. I felt it was necessary, and other people I worked with felt that it was important.

ITW: What was the hardest part about rehab?

L.L.: It was hard surrendering and having people tell me what to do. It was really humbling for me, but I liked how I was treated as a normal person. I had to look out for myself.

ITW: You also had to do chores.

L.L.: I kept the common areas clean. I liked making coffee for the gym the best.

ITW: How did the reunion with your father, Michael Lohan, happen?

L.L.: There were a lot of phone conversations, figuring out a way for him to come here. We hadn’t connected in three-and- a-half years. But it was really good for me. My mom [Dina] thought it was a good idea, as well. I think it was really important for me to get a connection back with my dad because I hadn’t had that in a while.

ITW: What’s it like now having your family reunited?

L.L.: It’s wonderful! I can relate to other people who don’t have both parents or have parents that are separated. It can be hard and draining on the children and the family. I think the trouble in my family resulted in me rebelling and doing things to try to get my parents’ attention. But all in all, it’s better for me now to have them [in my life]. It’s healthy.

ITW: There were rumors that you had fallen off the wagon in rehab.

L.L.: It’s just really hard when people put out rumors about a relapse. It’s hard for me to maintain my sobriety when people are doing that, because it hurts. I would like support from people.

ITW: The wife of another patient, Tony Allen, blames you for breaking up their marriage.

L.L.: Rumors are rumors. I don’t really have anything to say about that. Tony and I were just friends and if anyone has anything negative to say, I would just like to ask, “Why?” We were just friends and that was it.

ITW: Are you dating anyone now?

L.L: Yes, I am seeing someone. His name is Riley. I am really happy and taking it day by day.

ITW: Have you cut people out of your life who were bad influences?

L.L: I have good people in my life now. I am surrounded with people that don’t use me and who love me for me. They are people I can trust and love in return. I have found people that are there for the right reasons. They don’t need anything from me and they just treat me like a person.

ITW: But how do you know who your real friends are?

L.L.: My real friends are the ones who are appreciative of what I have done to take care of myself and change my life. They condone that. They want me to be happy and to still be in Utah. They are the ones who don’t want me back in LA to go party. Those are the ones who are around me for the wrong reasons. The people who want to go out and party, that’s not what I am about now.

ITW: Have you learned any useful advice you’d like to share?

L.L.: Just to stay true to yourself and respect yourself. Don’t do things for the hell of it. Karma’s a big deal, so treat others how you want to be treated.

ITW: Do you have any new movie projects lined up?

L.L.: I’m going to start filming a movie called Dare to Love Me. That should last about two weeks. Then, I am going to spend time with my family. I want to try something different, and do my job and see what that is like.

ITW: Are you moving to New York permanently?

L.L.: Well, I will be in New York to see my brothers and sister. I think that it’s important that I am there for them. It’s good for me, too. I’ll be back and forth, bicoastal, as I have been.

ITW: There has been talk that you’ve got a big charity trip in the works, too.

L.L.: I’m planning a trip to Africa during the second week in December. I’m working with the American Red Cross, but it is not finalized yet.

ITW: Do you have a message for your supporters from all this?

L.L.:I just want to apologize to any of my fans that look up to me, especially my younger fans, for setting the examples that I didn’t mean to set. That is one of the reasons that I want to change things. I don’t want to be known as that person. I have a younger sister and she looks up to me, too. All the negative stuff that gets said hurts my feelings, it hurts my sister, Ali, and my family. Maybe me not going out as much will help. I want to do what’s right for my family as well as what is right for me.

ITW: What was the biggest lesson you learned from all this?

L.L.: I learned who I am — the real me, stripped from everything else.

ITW: So was your time in rehab a good experience?

L.L.: It’s been a great experience. I’m really grateful. Everything happens for a reason and I am in the right place now.

    I wish her well and hope she means what she says. You have to prove it to yourself. One thing is for sure… she keeps a man. Sometimes you need a break from relationships too.

    That gorgeous red hair is so much better on her.

    Does it appear that the young women in Hollywood who party get more media attention than the men? a double standard…

    great job lindsay!!!! stay true to yourself. recognizing and noticing that you have a problem is the first step. you did that! I give you mad props. I cant even imagine what your life must be like with all the bad people in this world. I think you hit the nail right on the head. Family and Positive people are what a girl needs at our age. I hope that you stay sober and stay sweet. You are a wonderful actress and you are still young. No one is going to remember you 10 years from now for all the trouble you got it. Look at Drew Barrymoore. G_D BLESS YOU AND STAY STRONG!!!!!!
    ONE LOVE,
    TARA

    I will also give her credit for being honest. She gets a thumbs up for that one. It has to be difficult to stop drinking at 21.

    what the hell does first mean??? Who ever takes the time to write that stupid shit is preettty cool!!! Maybe I'm stupid but i just don't get it, just not clever!! Sorry! anyway this is a box to comment about Lindsey right, not write a number so go Lindsey!!!

    I have confidence Lins will make it this time around. I truely feel all finally kicked her in the ass.

    208

    this is post rehab shiz. been there said that myself without meaning a single word of it. guilt-induced therapy psychobabble, easy to blurt out when the physical addiction has been dealt with. however it takes at least 5 years of sobriety to break free from psychological addiction.

  9. Jenny says – reply to this


    209

    If there is such a thing as rehab-speak, she has become quite expert at it. I wish her the best, I guess…. One other thing: I will be quite disappointed if the Red Cross has anything to do with her. Talk about sullying their good name.

  10. jen says – reply to this


    210

    I was a fan, but honestly…I beieve that was a wonderful interview. She said all the right things. Very on point. But was she being sincere????? I don't buy it. She's obviously is an intellegent woman/girl……woman who acts like a girl??? Whatever..Time will tell….

  11. AdventurousZ says – reply to this


    211

    Wow, I'm amazed at how many people have no interest in backing her up. She seems like she genuinely wants to do and be better. Sure, I've had my ups and downs with my feelings towards Lindsey and her crap, but I think that she's still young enough and not as far off the deep end as Britney to make real changes. I hope for her sake and for the sake of her young admirers that she gets a life and lays of the booze and partying for a bit.

    On a new subject, who's the nasty boyfriend? He's not zexy.

  12. queenkittn says – reply to this


    212

    How long till she screws up? Before the release of this interview? Will they print it, edit it, or just show the usual train wreck pictures……
    Still pulling for her though…tehe

  13. HHH says – reply to this


    213

    She definitely needs support around her and people who generally care about her well-being. Shake the haters off and keep on moving forward!!!

    Trying to deal with a boyfriend while you trying to get yourself together is tough though especially one who also is dealing with his own addiction.

  14. queenkittn says – reply to this


    214

    Re: greedo2k – you sound like you may have had a run in with "The Queen" not that he needs to be stood up for but you may want to have that aggression checked!!!! Tehe

    I sincerely hope she gets her life back on track. I think I'll go watch Mean Girls and send her positive vibes, she needs them.

    216

    SHE SHOULD STAY AWAY FROM HER MOTHER WHO REALLY SUCKS AND TRY TO GO BACK TO HER DAYS OF ACTING LIKE SHE DID IN PARENT TRAP. I DOUBT IF ITS POSSIBLE THOUGH. HOPE SHES NOT "WASHED UP"

    Lindsay, If you do go to Africa, please don't adapt a child, that's so last year!

  18. eliteeliza says – reply to this


    218

    I really do hope she stays her "newfound self". I like her movies and would like to continue to see her in other projects. Hopefully, everyone around her, especially her parents are supportive and do not exploit her like they have in the past. She's grown up, and that's GrEaT NeWs!!! Will BRITNEY follow her example and go into rehab as well? I SuRE HoPe So!!! It definitely helped her!!!

  19. FrancescaLove says – reply to this


    219

    Well I guess nobody can predict WHAT will happen to her.. But it seems like she has a better outlook for now. and hey, atleast she has been staying there for a really long time. I'm sure it has somewhat humbled her. She is doing better than Britney right now.. She CAN act well, and I sorta wish the best for her..

    I think Lindsay has learnt alot and is sincere in this interview. Places like where she stayed really do teach you alot.

    221

    I've been to a similar program in Utah maybe twenty minutes away and I'm really familiar with Cirque. It's not a traditional twelve step program, she's been to AA, it's failed her, and she did something different. Not all programs discourage you from relationships, and if she's finally met someone good for her I totally support both of them and hope they can keep recovering together. All my best friends I've met in Utah and I'd be a mess without them. And as much as Lindsay pissed me off and was once at the top of my list of celebs who I boycotted on magazine covers, I respect her now. Coke can really mess you up, and live in therapy takes some balls being so far away from home. Now everybody that wants to insult her can go fuck themselves because she needs and deserves support right now.

    Re: ♀♀krazihottkelli♀♀the real bitch:c

    ARE YOU FUCKING 12? YOU DUMB ho!?! why the fuck must you talk like that. and your dumb comment about jail = no methadone , rehab = methadone is FALSE, IF YOU ARE ON A CONTROLLED SUBSTANCE PROGRAM THEY WILL CARRY IT OVER IN JAIL. just because you go to jail doesnt mean you will not get your dose of methadone bitch.
    FUCK I hate dumb people. they are able to legally provide you with methadone if you are detoxing jail or not — you have access to it in jail moron it is a controlled, legal when prescribed drug that is actually very effective in cleaning up opiate addicts. GET THE FACTS before you fucking say dumb shit you dumb 12 yEAR OLD.

    lol. fuck this bitch is LiLO's younger sister guys… ^^

    Hey, Lindsay, how about getting an education? some College? With your money and celebrity, I'm sure you could get into a good place. Natalie Portman went to Columbia, she did some serious reading and learning there, and look where she is, career-wise…

  28. Yeah, whatever says – reply to this

    I really hope that she meant everything she said. I am rooting for her. She is a true talent. I'd hate to see that all go to waste. Good luck Lindsay.

    I am proud of you Lindsay. This will not be easy for you. Focus on family and work. I believe if you work hard on your craft that someday you will be directing and even producing. Model yourself after Charlize Theron and Jennfer Love-Hewitt they are actresses. Not Celebrities…….Good Luck

    247

    Lindsay, Since you were very young it has been so obvious that have true talent. Being creative in your soul only makes life that much harder, really — but you sound very centered now and your associates can make or break you. Stay strong for yourself and everyone who loves you. Every family can have a lost lamb or two in it. Now that you have been found… by your own better self… stay sweet and….drink lots and lots of water! :)

    251

    Gotta say, I can't resist a celebrity car crash… But I think Lilo has actually done what is right for herself, her family and anyone that looked up to her. She'll be an addict for the rest of her life - as all drug and alcohol abusers are. It'll be a constant battle. And everyone falls off the wagon. Unfortunately for her, her fight will be in the public eye indefinitely. I can not stand stupid, spoilt little rich girls and I find it hard to sympathise with people that end up in rehab just because of the priveledges they're lucky enough to take for granted in life. But… Lindsay seems to be on the right track at last. There's something honest in that.

    260

    The cardinal rule of rehab is to not date, or have any "relationships" for the first twelve months following rehab. The second part to the cardinal rule is that you should never, EVER date someone who is rehabbing, also. Sounds like she didn't really learn anything while she was there.
