Lindsay Lohan didn’t hold back when it came to discussing her past on Good Morning Britain – admitting she wants to leave that troubled part of her life behind.
The Mean Girls star, who joined Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid on the sofa on Tuesday morning, discussed her previously wild behaviour and explained how turning 30 had been a turning point for her.
‘People really like to harp on the past, which was over 10 years ago,’ she told the pair.
Here’s what else Lindsay had to say for herself:
Lindsay on her past
‘I don’t think I ever ‘turned’ to anything I think it was just very accessible and I was 16,17,18,19, I’d been working so much and surrounded myself with the wrong people, and going out and drinking was an easy thing to do. And I didn’t listen to anyone.
I think LA is the problem, it moves so fast there and it’s easier to surround yourself with any person than it is to be alone. I noticed there was a point where I didn’t want to go out at night so I stayed home and I lost my friends because I wasn’t fun to them any more.’

Lindsay on rumours she has converted to Islam
‘I think any religion anyone chooses is a personal belief, my sister’s a Buddhist. [Converting] is a consideration I have, I don’t want to speak on something I haven’t finished yet, I don’t think that’s right.
I find a solace in studying, not just the Quran, other religion. Just like meditation. Something that feeds my soul and learning different cultures and beliefs and the Islamic culture I’ve found a lot of people, I feel like it’s a family to me.’
Lindsay on being racially profiled
‘I was flying to New York recently, I was wearing a headscarf and I got stopped and racially profiled for the first time in my life. Here at Heathrow. She opened my passport and saw Lindsay Lohan and started immediately apologising but then said please take off your headscarf.
‘I did, I mean it’s OK. But what scared me was that moment, how would another woman who doesn’t feel comfortable taking off her headscarf feel? That was really interesting to me. I was kind of in shock.’
Lindsay on Donald Trump
‘I don’t agree with his policies and the things that he’s doing, but at the end of the day he is the President right now, so what’s the point in picking on someone instead of just seeing what they’re capable of or not capable of?
‘I think it’s just, people are making it overly dramatic. I do think his Twitter needs to be taken away or deleted. I just think you know, don’t kick someone when they’re down.’
