Lindsay Lohan talks about 2014 and what a year it was for her in a cover story of The Guardian’s Observer magazine. She talks about her rehab and her career as of now where she spent the fall in London starring in Speed-the-plow.
She wanted to prove everyone wrong when she talks about her role in the play, telling the mag, “One time I was sick with a bug, I had been vomiting all day, but no way was I going to miss a show. I was sitting there beforehand seeing spots in front of my eyes, I had a plan: if I felt sick on stage I was going to faint, play dead, pretend it was part of the script. Didn’t happen fortunately.”
And on finally working again, after rehab, she comments, “It was such a diligent thing. The schedule was very ritualistic, so not to have that every day has been a really strange feeling. It’s been hard for me to adjust.”
She often would rely on advice from an unlikely source in Al Pacino. She said,, “He said, ‘I know you are going to love this, it will be such a rush for you.’ He helped me get a routine; I like to meditate a bit before I go on to stage. He warned me the adrenaline you have after is tricky, it’s late and you want to do something. I have let myself go eat, and then I have gone home.”
She talks about how life in London was different from that in Los Angeles, “I didn’t know what to do apart from go out every night.” She explains, “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.”
As for living in LA again? “I won’t live in L.A. again, hell no.” She notes, “My friends tell me sh*t 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?” she adds, “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.”
Seems like a very different Lindsay than what we are use to.
