Poor Barbara Walters. First Lindsay Lohan bailed on their planned “20/20” interview because the 26-year-old allegedly “didn’t feel up to it,” and then she went on to book appearances to promote her new movie, “Liz & Dick,” on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” and now Lohan is telling all on “Good Morning America.”
Fans will likely hear an earful about this second snub from Walters at a later date, but for now let’s focus on what LiLo had to say. “Liz & Dick” premieres on Lifetime on Nov. 25, and Lohan admits she is “nervous to see what people think of it.”
As for whether her career and life would have been different if she hadn’t been under “constant scrutiny,” Lohan answers, “Um, obviously yes, to a certain extent. But I think that everyone goes through things in life. I like to learn from my mistakes. But I wouldn’t be who I am today if I hadn’t gone through certain things. And everything happens for a reason, good or bad. So you can just, you know, take what you’ve learned from it and move forward.”
There rarely is a time when a Lohan family member isn’t making tabloid headlines, and the latest to do so is her father, Michael Lohan, and his 17-year-old love child, Ashley Horn. It turns out that Michael didn’t give his family the benefit of knowing the news before everyone else did.
“I didn’t even hear that, so thanks. I don’t read the news. I don’t pay attention to that,” she says on “GMA” after being asked about the scandal, adding. “I don’t really want to get into that. I want to stay on the positive side of things.”
And Lohan does seem like she’s doing a good job staying positive. Her focus is back on acting, so much so that she asks her agents to let her stay on set longer because it’s “safer that way,” and Lohan seems to feel like she’s on an upswing.
“I’m in a great place. I just want to move forward. Keep working,” she says. “I’m in the process of kind of moving and spend time with my family and just be happy.”
