Lindsay Lohan blames stress, lack of sleep for weight loss

matthew williamson opening 160209
Lindsay Lohan, who has been looking scary skinny recently (and that’s with the ten pounds the camera adds!) told a reporter that her weight loss was unintentional. She does admit that she has dropped some pounds, but claims that she has never stepped on a scale and doesn’t know how much she weighs. Then she goes on a tangent about being yourself in Hollywood and the ups and downs of young adulthood.

“I eat. I had my Big Mac yesterday from McDonald’s,” she told Us Sunday at the Matthew Williamson NYC store opening. “I eat just as much as I always have.”

The 22-year-old actress (who has raised eyebrows before for her skinny frame) said she thinks she has just been “working a lot.” She said she also blames “stress … and lack of sleep when I travel.”

Said the star, “I think it’s all that stuff that adds up.”

Lohan – who said she doesn’t know how much weight she has lost (“I’ve never weighed myself in life,” she said) – added that she doesn’t think about the pressure to be thin in Hollywood anymore.

“They’ve already said everything about me that they can say. And I’ve never really cared then,” she said. “I’m my own person, and people can say whatever they want. I’m still going to be the person that I am.

“And I think that’s so important for people in Hollywood,” she continued. “People have their ups and downs. Kids in college get DUIs. Everyone goes through something, and everyone can relate to something. I think that I don’t ever want to pretend to be something that I’m not. I’m not perfect; nobody is perfect. If you try to be perfect, you’ll probably go crazy. But you should always accept yourself for who you are. And that’s what I’ve done, and I’m happy.”

Right. I understand that people go through dark or tough times in their life, and that young adulthood is hard, that she has gone through all of this in the public eye. But sometimes I get really tired of her mouthing off about accepting who she is while she’s in a clearly unhappy relationship, has fallen off the rehab bandwagon, and is starting to look like a skeleton. That’s not acceptance; that’s denial. Eating a Big Mac isn’t going to make you gain back your weight, it’s just unhealthy. And the only thing she could be stressed about at this point is her relationship. She’s not been working recently.

Oh – and she also claims that her Valentine’s weekend was “great” because she “spent it with the person that I love.” I don’t know if I would call drunken late-night fights “great,” but whatever. It’s Lindsay.

    blames stress, lack of sleep
    uh huh its called coke
    she luvs the drama in her realtionship shes the whiney clingly crying one in the realtionship.

  2. Bodhi says:

    RIIIGHT. She looks strung out again. Maybe Sam isn’t so good for her…

  3. Ash says:

    her hair is beyond annoying. cut that crap off, it makes her look ridiculous with how skinny she is! y

    eah right, she ate a burger….

  4. Mairead says:

    Strange, I thought lack of sleep raised your cortisol levels which make you gain weight….

    Is “sleep” a euphamism for a healthy, drug/alcohol-free lifestyle?

  5. Sauronsarmy says:

    Stress?!! What stress? The lack of sleep is the drugs dumbas* you’ll be able to sleep once you stop. She looks like a Jersey truck stop hooker.

  6. KittyKate says:

    First of all, work? What work? Has she been doing something that the public doesn’t know about? Cause I thought all the appearances (the ones she doesn’t call in ‘sick’ for), are SAM’s gigs.
    2nd, I think it’s funny that even though the opening was likely at night, she has to go to yesterday for what she ate. Shouldn’t you eat every day if you’re ‘healthy’?

  7. PJ says:

    Does Lindsay have any movie projects in the works? She had a great career going, but it seems to have come to an abrupt halt since her drinking/drug problem became public.

    Losing a lucrative movie career — now that’s stressful!

  8. Codzilla says:

    She really does look like a Jersey hooker — complete with the poorly executed “sexy” face.

  9. neelyo says:

    I think the lack of publicity is the cause of her weight loss. People aren’t talking anymore, so she had to do something drastic.

  10. Kiol says:

    Lack of sleep? Well maybe Lindsay shouldnt be hanging out with people late at night like at Sam’s gigs. She’s not even working. Why not stay home and sleep early?

  11. Blondie says:

    Work? ok…..she obviously is in complete denial over her ‘career’ and being in ‘hollywood’

    Secondly being that skinny and pumping her lips just make her look sad and desperate and doesn’t in any way enhance her credibility.

    Great she ate a big mac! Wow – and as KittyKate says, eating 3 times a day every day is the healthy option, rather than 1 big mac occassionally…scary!

    Shame, she is unable to see outside of herself with perspective – she isn’t fooling anyone, apart from herself!

  12. Anoneemouse says:

    Every interview with her comes across as just another whine.

  13. kate says:

    i understand, lindsay: it must be stressful waiting for your dealer to deliver blow to your hotel room, and then exhausting staying up all night doing lines and drinking. no need to explain, girl.

  14. Granger says:

    kate, too funny!

    I love the “I’ve never weighed myself in my life” line. She’s an ACTRESS. They’re all obsessed with their appearance. Okay, so maybe she’s never stepped on a scale in her own bathroom, but there’s no doubt she’s had physicals where the doc weighed her; and her own agent would need to know her weight, height and other specifics to give to producers. It comes with the job.

  15. McKenna says:

    Work? Is that what these crazy kids are calling cocaine these days? Who knew?

  16. Mr. T says:

    A walking delusion waiting for an accident to happen.

  17. Well, at least we know she’s not back on that marching powder, because if there’s one thing coke does, it puts people to sleep. Take the rest of your money, check yourself into a long-term rehab, then a sober-living community & you might make it to 25.

  18. Tia C says:

    @ kate & Blondie – LOL, my thoughts exactly!

    Plus, haven’t we heard this song and dance before, the last time she got into the blow? Except now the “stress from work” excuse doesn’t fly cuz she’s not working! Wonder how long til her next trip to rehab…. And I’m not a hater, I actually like her, but, um,…. this is pretty transparent.

  19. meow says:

    i’ve lost 12 kilos due to stress and lack of sleep and so i actually do believe her. i wish everyone would leave her the hell alone and stop judging every little thing she does. shes only 22 for gods sake!

  20. All due respect, meow – you do know this is a gossip site, right?

    Looks like LiLo is living the clean life, balancing a healthy relationship with the rigors of work, all while maintaining a holistic lifestyle complete with diet and exercise. And shit loads of coke. And booze.

    @ Kate… The best truth I’ve heard today, LMAO.
