Actress Lindsay Lohan opens up about her troubled past

She’s been in and out of rehab, but Lindsay Lohan is determined to be remembered for more than being a troubled ‘party girl’.

The Mean Girls actress, 26, now wants to acknowledge her mistakes, move on from her bad reputation and make more films.

‘Substance abuse is a disease which doesn’t go away overnight,’ says Lindsay.

‘I’ve worked hard to overcome it. I want to be remembered for the work I’ve done, rather than the accidents I’ve gotten into.

‘I have to prove myself again.

‘I don’t want people to have that reason to be scared any more.’

Lindsay also wants to set up orphanages for underprivileged and abused children.

‘Life is full of risks anyway, why not take them?’ she says.

‘I’m not that girl from Freaky Friday any more!

‘I’m a real adult!’
