You Don't Mess With the Lohan

Special Offer

The truth? Who knows? For what it's worth, Lohan can certainly afford her own clothes, and she's been the butt of countless baseless rumors, like the one about her getting breast implants. "When I lost weight, they were like, 'She got them taken out!'" Lohan says. "And then, 'She got them put back in!' What am I, a crazy person? I mean, come on. Calm down!"

While she's clearly in a better place than she's been for a while, Lohan still maintains that quietly chaotic aura, the whiff of mischief that has made her so much fun to watch on-screen. And so it's touching when she says she'd like to be a mom someday. "At some point I want to adopt a kid as well," she says. "A child in need or a newborn from another country. I'm not sure." I ask what she remembers about being a kid herself, all traces of which have been banished from her seen-it-all face, with its vampy, cinematic contours. She was working, of course, doing commercials, one with Bill Cosby. Lohan smiles. "Kids go ape for Jell-O grape!" she says, with a tiny gasp of a laugh, remembering the line she was asked to say.

She's eager to get into the recording studio after Ugly Betty "Obviously, I want to sell records," Lohan says, "but I do it because I find it therapeutic. In music I can be myself." Besides, it's good to have something to do between movies. "This business is very go, go, go, and you're constantly surrounded by people, and then everything stops. So you kind of feel invalid, in a weird way. And it can get depressing because it's like, What do I do now?"

With any luck, what she'll do now is fulfill the promise of her outlandish potential and get back to being one of the most exciting actors of her generation. A force, a survivor, as opposed to LiLo, the global plaything.

"It's weird," Lohan says of having been granted that tabloid moniker. "It's like, Where do they get those things from? Whatever—it's fine. I know my real name."
