Lindsay Lohan plans to move to London permanently & work in period films


Here are some assorted photos of Lindsay Lohan out and about in London last week. I just never got around to posting them, because Lindsay really isn’t a “thing” anymore. She’s not so cracked-out that we need to talk about her in OMG Cracken terms, nor is she a completely sober success story of a person dealing with her recovery every day. She’s “together” enough to make it through a play without any major shenanigans, but let’s face it – she’s still out partying at all of the hotspots every other night. Anyway, LL has a new interview with The Guardian – you can read the full piece here. She talks about how she desperately wants to do another play and how she’s never, ever moving back to LA. Like, she’s going to be living in London from here on out, I guess. Some highlights:

Her old life in LA: “In LA I didn’t know what to do apart from go out every night. That’s when my friends were free. And I would go out and there would be all these cameras there and that’s when it became difficult.”

She’s moving to London permanently: Lohan has lived in the capital for nine months now, has a lease for another year on her flat in the West End, and is currently planning to make it her permanent home. She can’t emphasise enough the liberation the move has given her. “I can go for a run here on my own,” she says. “I do every morning, early, and I think how my friends in New York would still be up partying at that time. I needed to grow up and London is a better place for me to do that than anywhere else.”

Her summer vacation in Greece: “It was the first time I have ever just been on a vacation by myself. I just wandered about on my own! I turned off my phone. It was so extraordinarily freeing for me. Like another life.”

She’ll never live in LA again: “I won’t live in LA again, hell no. My friends tell me sh-t when they come over I don’t want to hear. I don’t even know who got married and who got pregnant. You turn on the news in LA and it is all gossip about people. All the stuff that is going on in the world right now and this gossip is the news? I love the BBC. I haven’t heard myself mentioned on TV since I have been here. That has been really weird for me, and great.”

She name-drops Al Pacino: “He said I know you are going to love this, it will be such a rush for you. He helped me get a routine; I like to meditate a bit before I go on to stage. He warned me the adrenaline you have after is tricky, it’s late and you want to do something. I have let myself go eat, and then I have gone home.”

She didn’t miss one show, even when she was deathly ill: “One time I was sick with a bug, I had been vomiting all day, but no way was I going to miss a show. I was sitting there beforehand seeing spots in front of my eyes. I had a plan: if I felt sick on stage I was going to faint, play dead, pretend it was part of the script. Didn’t happen fortunately.”

What kind of work will she do in England? “I would like to do a period piece at least. I enjoyed having a British accent when I did Parent Trap so I guess I am halfway there. The way I see it, the longer I live here the less of a choice you will all have not to hire me for plays… ”

[From The Guardian]

I’m sorry, London. She’s yours now. But London is luckier than many of those poor bastards in LA and NYC: at least Lindsay isn’t driving in London, as far as we know. I think she’s just taking taxis and public transport. Probably private cars too. And we still don’t really know who is paying for all of this. I think Oprah probably is footing the bill for some of it, in some way. And I’m sure there’s at least one sugar daddy in the mix too, to be determined. Still, this is probably the healthiest she’s been in several years.

Oh, and “I enjoyed having a British accent when I did Parent Trap so I guess I am halfway there…” Oh, Lindsay. If anyone hires her for a Jane Austen adaptation, you’re going to have to talk me off the ledge.

    Good for her, I wish it works for her!

  2. Birdie says:

    Gosh, I can’t believe what I’m about to write, but I think Lohan seems to be doing much better in London. I am surprised that she got through her play without trouble and she seems to not attract that much trouble there. Of course, she still parties and drugs are very common in London, so I don’t think she’s sober. We don’t hear from her that much anymore and that is good for everyone.

  3. Anastasia says:

    As much shit as she talks about LA, she sure seems to still enjoy posing for the paps in London. I’ll admit, she looks semi-good in the red pants photos. I side-eyed her comment about needing to grow up–how old is she? 27, 28? Good for her if she’s finally realizing this, but my 20 year old daughter sounds more mature than this.

    Ah well, baby steps I suppose. Congratulations, London! It’s a Cracken!

    • qwerty says:

      The growing up comment has been a constant for her for the past 6 or 8 years. I’ve literally seen a list of all the times she’s said it lol

      • Lady D says:

        …along with “I’ve learned from my mistakes,” or what about that golden oldie, “I will never see the inside of a courtroom again.”
        The first time she gets arrested, she’ll be back.

  4. Snazzy says:

    Unless it’s a movie about a cracked out period I’m not sure I can actually see what she is talking about …

    • Azurea says:

      Well, you know, there’s laudenum, opium, the REAL Coca-Cola…..lots of drugs from the past to have a character play with….

    • Ennie says:

      It would have to be time traveling to the past because of that plastic face.

    • qwerty says:

      The only role she could play convincingly in a period film would be that of a drunken time-travelling lady who goes to the future to get fillers and lip injections.

  5. Anastasia says:

    Meant to add, I cannot even IMAGINE her in a period piece. I’m sorry, but that would be AWFUL. Ugh.

  6. WinterLady says:

    Wow, I feel like America owes England an apology for letting Lohan leave our boarders and nest over there. I’d hate for this to cause an international incident.

  7. 'P'enny says:

    there’s always a scene for a opium drugged out trollop in a Victorian period drama.

  8. the blonde one says:

    period pieces? is that another sub-genre of porn?

  9. NewWester says:

    Those are some UGLY shoes she is wearing with that fur coat. Also was crack available in the 1800′s?

  10. EC says:

    her face is far too plastic to translate into any sort of period drama. but best of luck to you lilo, I honestly would LOVE IT if you managed to prove us all wrong.

    • Frida_K says:

      The strange veneers on her teeth, especially, would make it very hard to see her as an authentic period character. She looks like what she is–her history is written hard on her face.

  11. GoodNamesAllTaken says:

    I hope she gets it together someday, but I’ll believe it when I see it.

    • Dani2 says:

      Agreed. I’m holding out hope for her to get her life back on track for the last time but I’ll believe it when I’ll see it, I’ve heard this same story from her too many times.

  12. MelissaManifesto says:

    A change of scenery might help, but moving to another place will not completely remove addiction and patters of destructive behaviors. I wish her well, anything to make her healthy and happy I’m rooting for.

  13. DailyNightly says:

    Yeah, I’m sure Downton Abbey is waiting with open arms. And she may want to rethink that gerbil coat she is wearing.

    • funcakes says:

      They might be desperate enough to use her. The ratings are down. She might pop up on prove nd show to because he’s been involved with her. And not in a big brothers sort of way.

  14. Decorative Item says:

    It seems to be a better place for her. Still, I tend to think she is enjoying it there because she hasn’t burned all her bridges yet.

  15. Mia4S says:

    Lilo dear, you can go for a run on your own and haven’t heard your name on BBC because no one cares anymore!!

    Nice to know it’s so easy to immigrate to Britain with a criminal record and no ongoing employment! Well, I’m sure she’s “employed” but…*ahem*. Seriously though if I was a British actor, I’d be pissed off.

  16. Mrs. Wellen Melon says:

    Allow me to attempt a translation: LL wants a BBC Masterpiece Theatre-type job, like Piven in that Selfrige’s series. She would like it to hit big stateside, like “Downton Abbey”. This would regenerate her star power with the public and reputation as reliable with the industry.

    This leads to many film jobs. So, for now, LL is all about period drama.

    • Izzy says:

      You forgot this part: For now, my rich married sugar daddy will keep me in the lifestyle I would like to live.

  17. sapphire says:

    Wonder who’s coat she’s wearing? You know she isn’t supporting herself.

  18. Meow Mix says:

    Wow the snark is very strong this morning.
    Quiet honestly I felt like she might be dead by now with her cracked out behavior and can only say that I’m glad she seems to be in a better place.

  19. mkyarwood says:

    She could probably do Moll Flanders.

  20. Kiki04 says:

    Don’t you have to be an, I dunno, GOOD actor to get parts in British films? Especially the period pieces? Just saying, Lohan……..

  21. scout says:

    YES!! Move to UK, put them off them too! But she is a good actress, period films acting might suit her if she get the accent down. Haha…..

  22. manjit says:

    She’s more Rovers Return than Downton Abbey in my opinion.

  23. Talie says:

    She has been pretty quiet, so maybe London does suit her.

  24. saxamaphone357 says:

    “She didn’t miss one show, even when she was deathly ill.”


    Are we revising history or did this never happen?

    • jwoolman says:

      Yes, she still is delusional. She definitely missed at least one show when she was sick. The understudy did very well and got good reviews. How could LL “forget” that? But she definitely did show up otherwise and the illness was real. She just isn’t as good an actor as the understudy…. Which might have motivated her, actually.

  25. Nicolette says:


  26. Ginger says:

    Man life can be unfair. I’ve wanted to live in England since I was a child. Must be nice. She sounds like she’s doing better but I’m not convinced. As for acting in a period film, I really can’t picture it all. Maybe a soap opera or something. She used to be a good actress but she would have to really get her act together to regain those abilities.

  27. jaye says:

    And if you listen carefully, you can hear the brits screaming “Oh what fresh hell is this!!” She’s gonna be running pedestrians over in London now.

  28. Longhorn says:

    Well I wish the gal well. Maybe London is a better place for her. I can see that. I mean she’s no nun but she coming off half cracken now as opposed to full cracken just a year ago

    • FUTMZ says:

      Why? Why do you wish her well? Do you not care at all about her countless victims that she’s assaulted, robbed, tried to destroy? Behavior like that is OK with you? How about the nearly TWO MILLION she’s cost the taxpayers of Los Angeles for continuous court costs for her 10-year crime spree? Tell us again what Linds has ever done for anyone.

  29. funcakes says:

    Lies, Lies and more lies. Lindsay blames everyone but Linday. Random people just break in her LA home and make her take drugs. So she moves to the UK because they zero drug problems over there.

    Lindsay’s not fooling anyone. Her latest sugar daddy must live across the pond. He must have enough power to get her work and a black amex card to keep up appearances. As soon as he’s done with her she’ll move on to the next wealthy benefactor. When she’s done being past around Lindsay will give interviews on how she miss American and move back here.

  30. rtms says:

    In other words cultivated new contacts, hanger ons and drug dealers yet to fully enjoy-I mean wag her finger at- to make her look bad again? Give her time, London is just as bad for the drugs etc as LA was.

  31. Greek Chic says:

    Girl please. I live in Greece, she went in Mykonos and she was not private and quiet at all. She did some water sports but she also partied hard! Apart from that she was talking photos and also instagramming her vacation here all the time, so how did she turn off her phone?

  32. Mischa Jane says:

    Well, good for her, she does seem to be getting herself together somewhat. London seems to agree with her. But I am LOLing at her doing period pieces.

  33. Christina says:

    She seems to be growing up and into her own in London – wishing her nothing but the best!

  34. Bridget says:

    Um, Lindsay Lohan going for a run? What, like doen the street to buy a new pack of smokes?

  35. St says:

    Well its easier for her in London simply because she is not as big name there. And paparazzi don’t get crazy about her and probably not much money for her pictures. They have their own british stars that they get crazy about. Just open DailyMail showbiz page and there so many local stars.

    Well is better for Lohan to live in real world for some time. And not be in that delusional L.A. world. But still no movie roles. Not even tv roles. She still doesn’t get it that her career is over. There will never be big movie with big stars. Only some small budget with no names like Canyons. She can’t act, her face looks way older then her actual age, there are no roles for her. She wants to play 23-25 something young smart women. But it can’t happen. She doesn’t look like one. She can only play trailer park drug addict hoker. And she doesn’t understand. Thinks that after she got herself together – Spielbergs and Finchers will come knocking.

    • jwoolman says:

      I’m afraid you’re right. She astonished us just by showing up for Speed the Plow, that’s a major achievement for her. But she wasn’t very good. She flubbed too many lines and even after she managed to remember them, she showed lack of understanding and as one commenter put it, she was like a computer in sleep mode when it wasn’t her turn to say something. People thought she looked good, though, so that’s something. StP is a special case, not much memorizing needed for her role (most of her lines are on the second act, where she could stick notes in the script she was supposed to be quoting from). The two men were expected to carry the show, although I heard from theater groupies that at least one actress who did that role was spectacular, so having an intelligent and skilled actress can make a real difference. The understudy who took LL’s place when she was legitimately sick (who seems forgotten by LL in this interview) did a much better job in the role.

      Anyway, I doubt she can get real roles in British films, other plays, and tv shows. She just isn’t good enough and shows no interest in learning how to really act. Speed the Plow thought she would be worth it for free publicity (or did someone fund them?), but her notoriety really didn’t translate into good ticket sales. I don’t think her stunt casting record in tv and films in the US is very good, either. She was too hard to watch, it’s always embarrassing to see someone doing such a poor job when everyone else around them is doing a very competent job of acting. Due to both her notoriety and her poor skills, it’s always obvious that we’re watching Lindsay Lohan trying to pretend to be either herself or a character but not really doing it very well. Her skills are poor even by high school play standards, and apparently it wasn’t the drugs and alcohol that were her major problem in that regard. She just won’t work at the craft to improve. I wonder what her real reasons for staying in London are? Or is she just delusional about her job prospects without someone buying roles for her?
