These are the confessions of an adult comeback queen.
Lindsay Lohan has returned to acting, ready for the spotlight. But in a new interview, the “Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen” star admitted she’s still getting used to modern-day Hollywood.
In a profile with Cosmopolitan, the 36-year-old actress revealed her envy toward young starlets of the media today, and why she’s still getting used to the impact of social media.
Hesitatingly, the “Mean Girls” alum began, “I don’t even know. There’s too much of it [social media]. No, it is nice. Because now I feel like … when I first started out in the business, none of us had a say in how to control our own narrative.
“There were paparazzi pictures, and then people ran with it. So, I think it’s really good that in this day and age, people can say who they are and who they want to be,” Lohan continued.
“I admire and appreciate that. I’m a little jealous because I didn’t have that,” she admitted.
“But I think it moves really fast and I just try to keep up as best I can. And I check everything before I post it. I’ll send it to people. Because you have to.”
She went on to point out that fans “only ever know what we see on the screen” and they “don’t know what’s happening behind it.”
Fans will indeed be seeing much more of LiLo very soon: She’s gearing up for her Netflix debut, “Falling for Christmas,” out Nov. 10. Lohan is executive producing her Netflix romantic comedy and signed a deal to be in two more films for the streaming service.
She’s also launched her own podcast, “The Lohdown With Lindsay Lohan,” and narrates the Amazon Prime reality show “Lovestruck High.”
Elsewhere in her candid interview, the Long Island native explained why her deal with Netflix was a no-brainer.
“It was really comforting to me, when I got the script [for ‘Falling for Christmas’}, to see a movie that was a romcom because it’s always fun to work on something lighthearted and family-oriented that makes people happy and provides a bit of an escape,” Lohan gushed.
“And I was excited to kind of come back, to do something with Netflix, who is a big family in a way. It was the right fit for me, especially to be able to executive produce it,” she said.
She added, “I’m excited for the future and I’m just proud of how everything’s coming together … I feel everything’s very positive, and I like that. I want to keep that momentum.”
