Lindsay Lohan Gives Good…Interviews

lindsey-lohanShe’s interviewed for, um, Interview Magazine and it’s conducted by Lauren Hutton. Really? 

Anyway, it’s always nice to look behind the mask we see on TMZ or X17 where she looks angry at the world, simply tabloid fodder with no discernible talent to speak of, even if we know that’s not true. Below is an excerpt and I really enjoyed reading it, despite the “stop looking at me” references. 

LH: Everything you try, everything you do at that age-it’s all to find out what moves you.

LL: I feel like the modeling industry is a little bit more accepting of women who make mistakes. They appreciate the idea of icons. I found that when I worked with Bert Stern on re-creating the Marilyn Monroe shoot for New York magazine-the one she did right before she passed? When I was able to shoot with him and do that . . . Although I was also terrified to do it because, I mean, we’re two very different people, and I was only 21.

LH: But you had to channel her.

LL: I did. But when I did that shoot, people didn’t frown upon it. People were like, “That’s a bold thing to do.” People looked at that shoot more than they’ve looked at any film I’ve done in the past four or five years. And I like to do movies, because I love becoming different characters, and telling different stories through different eyes, and affecting someone’s life in one way or another.

LH: What emotions do you find easiest to access as an actress? Which ones do you find difficult?

LL: It’s funny because being comedic and happy and lighthearted is who I am as a person, so they’re easier emotions for me to connect with. The challenge is accessing pain, angst,   depression. . . It’s more exciting because it gives me somewhere to go and allows me to tap into a part of myself that everyone can relate to. But movies can change things. If you’re fighting with your boyfriend, you can go to the movies and cry it out and leave happy because the ending of the film is happy.
