Lindsay Lohan did a rare, non-televised interview with Piers Morgan for the Daily Mail in a “borrowed” townhouse in Manhattan. She was wearing “bright striped pyjamas” (British spelling), and talking about everything that ever happened in her life. Ever.
Her first drink: I was 17… I got really sick and Mom made me sleep with vomit still on me so I’d understand how it felt. I didn’t drink again throughout high school. I was too scared!
“So you’re an alcoholic?”: No … But when I was younger I was definitely going out too much and I was drinking too much. I was accused of everything, even stealing a necklace. I’d never steal a necklace.
Cocaine: Everyone thinks I’ve done it so many times. But I’ve only done it maybe four or five times.
Her drugs of choice: Pot, obviously. And ecstasy. I liked that better than the others (giggles). I didn’t drink on it, so I was just chilling. It’s something that a lot of people experience when they’re in college.
Rehab is “a joke:” I’ve been court-ordered to do it six times. I could write the book on rehab. Constantly sending me to rehab is pointless. The first few times I was court-ordered to rehab it was like a joke, like killing time.
Fixing Lindsay 101: The best thing they could do for me would be to make me go abroad to different countries and work with children.
Her dad’s affair: He’d disappeared for five days, so I asked Mum if we could go to my grandmother’s house and see if he was there. I got out of the car when we arrived and I saw him diving into the pool with some woman. So I ran into the house and checked her ID to see who she was. I remember running back to the car, feeling sick. I didn’t tell Mum until we got home. That woman was the one he had a secret child with, which came out in the press recently.
“When did you first go to therapy?”: Around 13. I wanted to talk to someone. I didn’t want to burden Mum with everything.
On bisexuality/dating Samantha Ronson: I like being in a relationship with a guy. But there’s something just different about it with a woman. When I was with Samantha, I didn’t want to leave, because I didn’t want to be alone. It was very toxic. And her family controlled anything she did.
“So you’re probably straight?”: No, I know I’m straight. I have made out with girls before, and I had a relationship with a girl. But I think I needed to experience that and I think I was looking for something different.
“Do you drink a lot?”: Not really. I’ve never been a huge drinker. I’ve never woken up in the morning and had a drink.
