There you have it!
When it comes to living in the United Arab Emirates, the 31-year-old enjoys not being a paparazzi target. She told the publication:
“There’s a certain calmness that I find there. There’s no paparazzi, no cameras; that’s a big deal for me… I never considered people taking a picture ├óΓé¼╦£bothering’ me, but I don’t want people to misinterpret who I am as a person if they see me sneezing and they say I’m crying. I do really appreciate having the life where I can just go outside and not have to worry.”‘
The actress even relies on a support network of female friends.
“It’s a very big place for female activists… Women have a very strong community. It’s a whole different world, which is really cool. It’s a place you think women don’t have as much of a right to be themselves, but they actually have more than you’d imagine.”
Although the thespian has made her fair share of headlines throughout the years, Lohan believes celebrity culture has gotten crazier due to technology and social media.
“It’s [called] an iPhone… We didn’t have Instagram├óΓé¼┬ª It would have been a lot calmer for me. When you think about it, paparazzi are not as crazy as they used to be when I used to be in New York. Now I can just [take a picture] before I walk out the door and then there is no story. It’s good, but it’s a little in-genuine. But don’t you think it’s going to go away? It used to be, the less you are seen, the better. But that’s impossible. What, are you never going to leave home?”
Last month, the thespian shared an image of herself next to an animated Batgirl (SEE HERE), in what many thought was an attempt to get Joss Whedon to cast her in the upcoming adaptation.
Apparently, Lindsay wants the role so badly, she thought about stalking the necessary people in Los Angeles to make it happen!
“I even considered flying to Los Angeles the other day just to stalk them for Batgirl… It’s true. I thought, How do I get to Los Angeles without anyone knowing that I’m there?”
Love her or hate her, you have to admit she is damn persistent!

On her upcoming makeup line and more new projects: “I love lipstick, but I love using lipstick as blush. But if I have a cream blush, I want to be able to use it on my lips and not worry about breaking out after. So, I developed one… I did my leggings line, but I think I was filming [too much], and I didn’t have the focus. It’s closer to haute couture.”
On wanting to go to the Oscars: “But I don’t want to go just to go. I want to go because I have accomplished something great, and I just want to be there for the film. I don’t want any personal thoughts, or, I don’t want to come there with a statement of some kind. I just want to come there and say, ├óΓé¼╦£I’ve been aspiring to come here on the stage like all the Hollywood greats that I’ve looked up to my whole life├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥the Elizabeth Taylors, the Marlene Dietrichs, the Anne Baxters├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥and I’m here. Thank you.’ I just want to say thank you.”
