She’s come a long way, baby.
Lindsay Lohan answered some questions via email with Vanity Fair this week, basically reflecting back on her (almost) 30 years on the planet. Yes, Lilo’s big 3-0 is coming up! As we ALL KNOW, she’s packed a lot of action into those years. In the interview, the actress reflects on her life thus far, and what she hopes the next decade will hold…which include kids! And, a book! Here are the highlights:
Vanity Fair: How do you feel about turning 30?
Lindsay Lohan: I feel great! Age is only a number, right? I have learned a lot over time. I am in a wonderful place in life and look forward to the near and far future and projects that I am working on.
Are you having any of those turning-30, “I should run a marathon” moments?
I have run a lot of marathons over the years, so to speak. I am in the process of writing a book, and I am very excited to share my personal experiences in life and how to overcome obstacles. I hope that my words will connect with those who need some guidance when [or] if they are in a tough place. I am grateful that I have a voice, which I can now feel comfortable using as a platform to let people know that we all have ups and downs in life, and we can all come up from the downs if we get in touch with our inner self and spiritual side.
What excites you most about the next decade of your life?
Making more films, writing my book, starting my charity, working with children a lot. Maybe having some of my own soon—after I get some movies done, first.
Do you have any regrets?
I wouldn’t call things regrets, per se. I can’t turn back time. But if I could, I would have listened more to my mother and gone back home to N.Y.C. earlier in life and chosen my friends more wisely.
What would your 30-year-old self tell your younger self when she started filming The Parent Trap?
I can’t say that I would have listened then, haha. My mother taught me to always be humble, and that is something I live by still today, so I would say that. I would also probably say don’t go too fast. Pay attention to the people you surround yourself with and make sure they have honest intentions. Put yourself first, and just breathe. Be happy and always be grateful for the moment you have in front of you. Be here, now.

I’m not sure what I’m more excited for- Lilo’s book or her wedding to her 22-year-old Russian dude. Also, what’s all this about “listening to her mother?” Dina Lohan, or is she talking about a handler? Dina is crazy so that doesn’t make sense to me. LOL.
Happy almost birthday, Lindsay! You’ve made it out ALIVE.
