Lindsay Lohan: "I Won't Live in L.A. Again — Hell No"
The actress has been living in London for the past nine months and plans to make it her permanent home
Lindsay Lohan says that living in London has allowed her to grow up and that she has no plans to return to the destructive party scene as well as intense media scrutiny she suffered in Los Angeles.
In an interview with The Observer, Lohan, who these days is as notorious for her private life as she is known for her acting, said that London living and her relative anonymity in the U.K. were necessary for her to mature. "I can go for a run here [London] on my own. … 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," she said, adding: "In L.A. I didn't know what to do, apart from go out every night. 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."
In London, the Mean Girls actress has found her low profile strange but something really positive. "I haven't heard myself mentioned on TV since I have been here. That has been really weird for me, and great," she said.
Lohan, who recently starred in a theater production of David Mamet's Speed-the-Plow, has been living in London for nine months, with another year left on her West End apartment, and plans to make her stay in the city more permanent. One thing is for sure: She doesn't envisage returning to L.A. "I won't live in L.A. again — hell no. 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 L.A., 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?"
