Lindsay Lohan says she feels lucky not to have committed suicide. The Liz and Dick actress, who has endured five stints in rehab and been arrested six times in recent years, feels “bullied” by the constant attention surrounding her personal life and thinks other stars would have crumbled under the pressure and speculation.
She said “Since I was a kid, I’ve loved being on camera. Don’t misconstrue that; I didn’t strive to have flashbulbs at dinner or people who don’t know me calling TMZ. And 99 percent of the time, it’s not true.
I feel bullied. I can’t think of any actor who has been subjected to such extreme publicity who hasn’t, like, committed suicide.”
However, the 26-year-old star believes her past experiences made her perfect for her latest role as Dame Elizabeth Taylor, though she insists she has always taken a more professional approach to her work than the late star. She told Us Weekly magazine “Everything I’ve gone through made me ready to play Liz.
Elizabeth was drunk on sets. I’ve never been drunk on set, ever. I did my time and I respect the law.”
