Lindsay Lohan flashed a smile for photographers while out in LA yesterday, but her afternoon took a turn for the worse when her assistant crashed Lindsay's new $115,000 Maserati. Oops. Thankfully, the damage wasn't major, and Lindsay, who is no stranger to car trouble, isn't at fault. While this can't help her rumored financial troubles, Lindsay took a moment to clear some things up. She talked to E! and here are highlights:

  • On her relationship with Samantha: They need to stop saying we're fighting. People telling lies about me to her and all this garbage. I'm really a good person and I have a good heart and just want to work and the only reason I go to clubs is to hear Samantha spin or be normal. I don't drink, I don't do drugs and I don't lie. I love to act and write and be creative and I want to help people by playing characters that can send a positive message out to whomever may need it."
  • On her goals: "I'd like to have my own charity, do work overseas, be in Oscar-nominated films, write movies, produce movies/shows/videos, design clothes, make music, write books, etc. It's all possible if people would just stop judging me and accusing me and making me out to be this aloof, spoiled, ungrateful and unprofessional person that I am not and could never be."

  • On believing in herself: "With everything that's gone on with my family, my parents still taught us how to have tact, class, respect for others and how to follow our dreams and never change who we are for anyone or anything. No. 1 is perfect, and perfect is impossible. You have to make mistakes to learn so that you can grow up and live your life the right way. Things happen, and you have to move on, be strong and believe in yourself. It would be really nice if people would believe in me."
  • On her future: "I move forward and I change. Life's too short not to. If people would just leave my personal life alone — because it's really not that interesting — then I could land a great role. But all the sicko fans and the noise is so distracting I just want to live the dream that I've worked so hard for since I was four years old.
