Lindsay Lohan: I Still Need to 'Prove Myself'

Lindsay Lohan: I Still Need to 'Prove Myself'

Lindsay Lohan opens up about partying, regaining fans’ trust, and her upcoming Elizabeth Taylor role in a Today interview set to air Thursday (March 1).

Here’s what the 25-year-old actress had to share with Matt Lauer (via USA Today):

On hitting the party scene: “That’s not my thing anymore. I went out, actually, a few months ago with a friend. And I was so uncomfortable. Not because I felt tempted, just because it was just the same thing that it always was before. And it just wasn’t fun for me. I’ve become more of a homebody. And I like that.”

On hoping the public trusts her again: “I think that that’s gonna take … I think that takes time. And I think that it’s actions. Because people can say things all they want, but I think I still need to go through the process of proving myself, you know, with SNL, being on time, being, you know, keeping my – can’t say the word – stuff together.”

On playing Elizabeth Taylor in an upcoming project: “We’re in the middle of casting and figuring – we start production soon. I’ve been doing tons of research. But I’ve always kind of researched her. She’s always been a fascinating woman to me. So I’m really honored. And I will not let anyone down, especially myself. Because people, you know, I could see where it could be scary for people to invest in me. And I don’t want people to have that reason to be scared anymore. So being able to have this opportunity with SNL and the film, I’m gonna do what I’m supposed to do, and enjoy doing it, and do it as best as I can.”

i wish her success. she was a great actress at a very young age, and great in “the parent trap” playing twins and even doing a british accent. so, i hope she hangs in there and does a great job in this movie. one you get into drugs, it’s hard to get out, but i hope she does it.

The girl who cried wolf. I just don’t care for or about her anymore. She had a million chances and she always messed them up. We’ve heard her shtick that this time she’s better over and over again. It’s getting real tired.

She looks terrible. The blonde washes her out. She needs to go back to her original red, as this color makes her look 40, not 25.

Liz Taylore was an ACTRESS. I have to ask, how small is this company/channel that’s trying to pull off this Lindsay as Liz? I can honestly say I will NEVER watch it with her. Surely, there must be an actress who is qualified. Lindsay has messed up way to much. There are so many young and talented women out there who want to be an ACTRESS. Why not give the people who have truly worked hard a chance. This is VERY disappointing.

I hope Lindsay can get it together. She used to be a very decent actress and so beautiful.

I will not even click on a reality tv’s picture, link, etc. I don’t want to feed the machine. I want them all to disappear. I want real movie stars and actors.

First of all, Lifetime should be ashamed of cast such a ***** to play Liz Taylor.

Second, we’ve heard all of this same crap from Lindsay before. She’ll never change, and frankly, who cares about her anymore?

Liz Taylor must be spinning in her grave
seriously who’s the casting director

Give the girl a break, she has/had a disease, she was an addict. I guess no one here really knows how it is, right? So, STFU and give the girl some time!

good for her!

Lindsay I’m rooting for you, take it a day at a time and stay away from temptation.

Lifetime is no HBO!

Girl has a serious entitlement issue so NOPE not getting any sympathy from me. Lindsay as the great Liz is a disgrace.

I think Liz would have loved Lindsay playing her. Liz went through a lot herself and in the public eye, so she would probably understand what a second chance means. Lindsay sounds like she is starting to understand what she needs to do to get her life in order. I just hope she does it behind the scenes as well.

I really hope that Lindsay can stay clean and have a great career.

Has anyone noticed that whenever there is a story planted on Lindsay now, it seems like a swarm of her people descend, putting in positive comments and negating anything that isn’t positive about her.

what? There is actually a swarm of extremely judgmental people who couldn’t miss the opportunity to say something negative about Lindsay. Or, any other public person for that matter.Sad

LIlo needs to prove to NO ONE, everybody knows she is an Hollywood icon that exhibits true talent and class, she is one of a kind….go Lilo!!!!!

I think Megan Fox would make a good young elizabeth taylor.

Go away Loserhan and take all your famiy members with you.

Awwww, I love Lindsay! I wish her well :)

People forget that Lindsay is a great actress, You may want to watch one of her movies to remember that and not judge her on her private life.
I think she will be great as Liz!
Let’s not forget Liz and ALL her “private life” problems (drugs, divorce, ruining her career)

Yay!! Lindsay! Can’t wait for her comeback! WORK IT GIRL!!!

I think Megan Fox can be perfect Elizabeth Taylor.
