Linsday Lohan has attracted so much controversy in the past years, but rarely has she talked at length about any of her misdeeds in public. Recently, though, she gave one of her most candid interviews with Piers Morgan, courtesy of the Daily Mail, in which The Parent Trap star revealed the few times she’d taken cocaine and why she thinks rehab is a joke.
“Everyone thinks I’ve done it so many times,” Lindsay said when asked about how many times she had used cocaine. “But I’ve only done it maybe four or five times in my life.”
Lindsay also maintained she’s neither taken heroin nor did LSD, but admitted to trying marijuana and ecstasy. And while many people have probably labeled her as an alcoholic or a hopeless drug addict, she strongly pointed out that she has never been a huge drinker or a stoner, saying it has been a year since she last took a drug. Interestingly, she revealed suffering from Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) which is why she has to take Adderall to calm down.
“I’ve never been a junkie, and never will be,” Lindsay adds. “I just like going out late to clubs with friends and listening to music. Always have done. It’s not that unusual for girls of 26!”
On May 6, Lindsay was court-ordered to serve 90 days at the Betty Ford Center as part of a plea bargain regarding her June 2012 car crash case. However, she thinks that getting lockdown for three months isn’t what she needs, describing rehab as “pointless” and just “like killing time.”
A few months ago, Lindsay’s lawyer attempted to fix her case by telling prosecutors about her interest to deliver public service messages and perform inspirational talks in schools and hospitals and Lohan also mentioned to Morgan that that’s what she believes would help her.
“… I think there are other things I could do instead of going to a rehab centre that would benefit me more,” Lindsay said. “The best thing they could do for me would be to make me go abroad to different countries and work with children.”
