Listen up, "sicko fans": It's time to leave Lindsay Lohan alone so she can get a job.
"I move forward and I change. Life's too short not to. If people would just leave my personal life alone — because it's really not that interesting — then I could land a great role," Lohan tells E!. "But all the sicko fans and the noise is so distracting."
The overly scrutinized actress hasn't graced the big screen since the 2007 bomb I Know Who Killed Me, which was released smack dab in the middle of her dual DUI arrests. With those Bacchanalian ways and legal woes behind her now, Lohan says she is focused on her (hopefully) Oscar-worthy future.
"I don't drink, I don't do drugs and I don't lie," she says. "I love to act and write and be creative, and I want to help people by playing characters that can send a positive message out to whomever may need it. ... I'd like to have my own charity, do work overseas, be in Oscar-nominated films, write movies, produce movies/shows/videos, design clothes, make music, write books, etc."
All of those things are possible, she believes, if people would just get off her case. "[S]top judging me and accusing me and making me out to be this aloof, spoiled, ungrateful and unprofessional person that I am not and could never be."
It's not just her professional life she wishes critics would leave alone: Lohan, 22, is also drained by the chatter about her relationship with girlfriend Samantha Ronson, with whom she says she's not fighting. "People telling lies about me to her and all this garbage," she says. "I'm really a good person, and I have a good heart and just want to work. The only reason I go to clubs is to hear Samantha spin or be normal."
She adds: "My past is my past and it's been a long one, but I'm growing more and learning more day by day. I'm not the same person and I don't make the same mistakes."
