Post-rehab Lohan vows to 'grow up'

Empty

Four days out of rehab, troubled actress Lindsay Lohan apologized to fans and vowed to change her hard-partying ways in two interviews published Tuesday.

"The biggest thing is not being in LA and staying away from the nightlife," Lohan told In Touch Weekly when asked how her life would change .

"There are some things that I can do to make changes and grow up. I want to act like a woman rather than a teenager," said the 21-year-old former Disney television and movie star.

"I just want to apologize to any of my fans that look up to me, especially my younger fans, for setting the examples that I didn't mean to set," Lohan said.

In a separate interview with OK! magazine, Lohan said rehab "made me look at myself and all the people, places and things in my life in a different way."

Lohan rose to fame as a child star on cable TV and in teen-oriented movies such as "Freaky Friday," and she gained a reputation for serious acting in "A Prairie Home Companion."

But Hollywood's fast pace took its toll. Lohan was hounded by paparazzi tracking her party girl ways. Her two recent movies, "Georgia Rule" and "I Know Who Killed Me," bombed.

Worse, Lohan was involved in two driving incidents that led to her pleading guilty in August to cocaine possession and no-contest to drunken driving charges. She checked into the Cirque Lodge in Utah and remained there until last Friday.

"It was really humbling for me, but I liked how I was treated as a normal person," she told In Touch Weekly.

Lohan said she had to clean "the common areas" and she liked "making coffee for the gym."

She also reunited with her father, Michael, from whom she was estranged for 3 1/2 years. Lohan said it was "really good for me." Her parents are divorced, and Lohan said it was her mother Dina's idea for her to reach out to her dad.

"The trouble in my family resulted in me rebelling and doing things to try to get my parents' attention," she said.

Lohan told In Touch she is seeing a man who was identified by the magazine as Riley Giles, a 25-year-old snowboarder from California she met at Cirque.

"I am really happy and taking it day by day," she said. "I am surrounded with people that don't use me."

Finally, Lohan said it is time to get back to work.

"I'm going back to (Los Angeles) to shoot 'Dare To Love Me,' but I plan on returning to Utah so I can stay focused and avoid other distractions," she told OK!
