Lindsay Lohan was just named as one of The Observer’s “Faces of 2014,” especially after her dramatic move to London to preserve her sobriety, her reputation and her career. In the interview, Lindsay delves into why she moved, some of her lifestyle choices and what she’d like to be up to next. Here’s a little peek…
On her solo summer trip to Greece: “It was,” she says, still thrilled at the idea, “the first time I have ever just been on a vacation by myself. I just wandered about on my own! I turned off my phone. It was so extraordinarily freeing for me. Like another life.” The world, which had for so long reflected back to her an ugly image of herself, was suddenly just “out there”.
On partying in LA: “In LA I didn’t know what to do apart from go out every night,” she says. “That’s when my friends were free. And I would go out and there would be all these cameras there and that’s when it became difficult.”
On NOT partying in London: “I can go for a run here on my own,” she says. “I do every morning, early, and I think how my friends in New York would still be up partying at that time. I needed to grow up and London is a better place for me to do that than anywhere else.”
On living in LA: “I won’t live in LA again, hell no,” she says. “My friends tell me shit when they come over I don’t want to hear. I don’t even know who got married and who got pregnant. You turn on the news in LA and it is all gossip about people. All the stuff that is going on in the world right now and this gossip is the news?” She laughs. “I love the BBC. I haven’t heard myself mentioned on TV since I have been here. That has been really weird for me, and great.”
In general, I think this move HAS been good for Lindsay. But honestly, she should have moved to some boring rural town in the Midwest, with frigid winters and pot roasts and trips to Costco; London still feels to glamorous. If you could relocate Lindsay Lohan live anywhere, where would it be? Creative answers ACCEPTED!
