Lindsay's Got a Brand New Man

Lindsay's Got a Brand New Man

Lindsay Lohan sure hasn't wasted any time making herself heard since leaving rehab. She made sure to line up a few interviews and photoshoots fresh out of rehab before she gets back to work. LL talked to OK! Magazine about hitting rock bottom and her upcoming plans, and she revealed to InTouch that she has a new boyfriend and is in a much happier place after her stint in rehab. Here are highlights:

  • On dating:
    Yes, I am seeing someone. His name is Riley. I am really happy and taking it day by day.
  • On her message to her fans:
    I just want to apologize to any of my fans that look up to me, especially my younger fans, for setting the examples that I didn’t mean to set. That is one of the reasons that I want to change things. I don’t want to be known as that person. I have a younger sister and she looks up to me, too. All the negative stuff that gets said hurts my feelings, it hurts my sister, Ali, and my family. Maybe me not going out as much will help. I want to do what’s right for my family as well as what is right for me.
  • On giving back:
    I’m planning a trip to Africa during the second week in December. I’m working with the American Red Cross, but it is not finalized yet.

As much as we wish LL didn't feel the need to start giving interviews 10 seconds after she left rehab, we are glad to see that she looks happy and healthy and seems to be thinking positively. Let's just hope she can keep things up.

  • In Touch Weekly (ITW): How will your life be different now?

    Lindsay Lohan (L.L.): The biggest thing is not being in LA and staying away from the nightlife. Going out all the time was very self-destructive. Partying and having all of those pictures taken distracts from the work that I do. It’s not why I started acting. I didn’t get into acting to be written about. It kind of just happened — so I accept that it’s my life. But there are some things that I can do to make changes and grow up. I want to act like a woman rather than a teenager. I am doing the best I can.

  • ITW: You’d been at Cirque Lodge since August. Why did you stay longer than you needed to?

    L.L.: There is that urge to want to leave early, obviously, and be back in the real world. But it was safer at Cirque and I was learning more. I felt it was necessary, and other people I worked with felt that it was important.

  • ITW: What was the hardest part about rehab?

    L.L.: It was hard surrendering and having people tell me what to do. It was really humbling for me, but I liked how I was treated as a normal person. I had to look out for myself.

  • ITW: You also had to do chores.

    L.L.: I kept the common areas clean. I liked making coffee for the gym the best.

  • ITW: Are you dating anyone now?

    L.L: Yes, I am seeing someone. His name is Riley. I am really happy and taking it day by day.

  • ITW: Have you learned any useful advice you’d like to share?

    L.L.: Just to stay true to yourself and respect yourself. Don’t do things for the hell of it. Karma’s a big deal, so treat others how you want to be treated.

  • ITW: Are you moving to New York permanently?

    L.L.: Well, I will be in New York to see my brothers and sister. I think that it’s important that I am there for them. It’s good for me, too. I’ll be back and forth, bicoastal, as I have been.

  • ITW: There has been talk that you’ve got a big charity trip in the works, too.

    L.L.: I’m planning a trip to Africa during the second week in December. I’m working with the American Red Cross, but it is not finalized yet.

  • ITW: Do you have a message for your supporters from all this?

    L.L.: I just want to apologize to any of my fans that look up to me, especially my younger fans, for setting the examples that I didn’t mean to set. That is one of the reasons that I want to change things. I don’t want to be known as that person. I have a younger sister and she looks up to me, too. All the negative stuff that gets said hurts my feelings, it hurts my sister, Ali, and my family. Maybe me not going out as much will help. I want to do what’s right for my family as well as what is right for me.

  • ITW: What was the biggest lesson you learned from all this?

    L.L.: I learned who I am — the real me, stripped from everything else.

  • ITW: So was your time in rehab a good experience?

    L.L.: It’s been a great experience. I’m really grateful. Everything happens for a reason and I am in the right place now.
