Lindsay Lohan's Surreal Interview in Elle September 2008 Issue

Posted on August 8, 2007

Elle magazine has really outdone itself with its September issue which features Lindsay Lohan on the cover. Now that's she's facing two DUI charges and possibly other legal problems, her statements in the Elle interview have a surreal feel to them. The interview is titled "Girl on Fire." Here are some highlights:

On her reputation for drunk driving: "I wouldn't violate ... I'm much more responsible than that. I would not do that."

On her rehab stay at Wonderland: "I was growing up and going out a lot, and I needed to have a balance. I was glad I went, because I needed to get away from everyone and I didn't know how to do that. And I learned a lot there. A bunch of my friends - I was with them last night - they're in AA for, like, years."

On slimy now ex-boyfriend Calum Best: "I like him. He's me in male form. We're very similar. Stubborn, rebellious, very smart, coy, a little bit narcissistic - I think all actors have a little bit of that, and so they should. We'll be kidding around, like the other day when we were in the Bahamas ... I was walking by some mirror. And he caught me looking in the mirror and he goes, 'I caught that!' I was like, 'Damn, I look good!'"

On the media frenzy she creates: "I feel like the asshole, the idiot, because I feel like I'm distracting from the other things that are important, like global warming and that kind of stuff. I genuinely mean that. And I don't know what to do."

On avoiding fame: "I hate it, like, when these people say, 'Well, why do you go to the Ivy if you don't want ...' Seriously, I like their food! I can't go to a restaurant? I know I'm going to get pictures taken. I'm fine with it. And I'm going to go have their food. People give you shit for it: 'Don't go on Robertson!' What, I can't drive down the street?"

On her pantyless photos: "It was once, and it was when I was in Venice. And I was rushing through the room, threw the Prada dress on. And that's what happened. And I didn't even see the picture. I don't look at that shit - that's gross. If I wear a dress I have underwear on."

On sleep troubles: "I have really bad insomnia. My whole life. I get nervous at night going to bed, and being awake alone really freaks me out."

The girl is clearly delusional. No one goes to the Ivy for food. She does look good, though. Too bad she stole Louis Vuitton clothing from the photo shoot, dooming her chances of representing the French fashion house. There's also a video from the photo shoot on
