Lohan hits back on career

LindseyLohan.jpgLindsay Lohan has said that she's fed up with the party girl tag she's carrying and wants people to concentrate more on her acting performances.

Specifically she's been talking about her latest role in I Know You Killed Me, a story which focuses on a girl who is rescued after being tortured by a serial killer. Returning home she appears to believe she's someone else, is she suffering from a dual personality or is something more sinister going on? Sounds a great plot.

"At first I was like, 'I can't do this, I'm getting my legs cut off. I don't want to look like that in scenes, I want to look decent.' But that was just me being young and stupid...And I have my first sex scene in it, which I always said I wouldn't do. I wanted to do this movie so people can see that I'm a f**king actress and I've been doing it forever and it's about time people see that. It felt so good to really act."

Wow, she's pretty serious about that, but while she comes out with some strong and positive comments there, I think she goes and blows it with her follow up comments from PR Inside:

"The thing with the press, and why they need to leave me the f**k alone for a little bit, is because I don't want that distracting from my work...I want to get a nomination. I want to win an Oscar. I want to be known for more than, like, going out. For being the 'party girl'. I hate that. I bust my ass when I'm filming and when I have time off, yeah, I like to go out and dance."

Well I get the whole private life and party hard bit, but to say it's the press that's distracting her after the recent comments from some people she's worked with, as well as her publicised private/work life, I wonder if she's doing herself any favours taking this stance. Let's hope the acting does speak for itself and it puts the negative comments behind Lindsay Lohan and her career.



There are people out there, myself included, that think she has the talent and drive (if focused in the right direction), to be a good actress but her "partying" isn't helping her any. She needs to step back and take a page from the book of some other young actresses who are just as if not less talented but that come across much better which therefore gets them more work and more respect. Mandy Moore and Hilary Duff anyone? I like them but I think Lohan has more talent. You'd just never know it.

Wow. Never thought I'd say that much in Lohan's defence but there you have it.

Awww shame. The press are so selfish when famous people don't want them about, but then the next week they are flaunting themselves all over the place for publicity.

goes with the territory i'm afraid. Can't take her acting seriously until she can:
a: act
b: not appear in every trash mag with her gear half off.

her comments will also only serve as a red rag to a bull.. or more free publicity

I am right with you there Marina.

I think Lohan has more talent than those two ladies combined. I would love to see Lohan mature as an actress and I think she does have the chops to prove it.
