Lindsay Lohan is moving back to America to ‘take back the life I’ve worked so hard for’

Lindsay Lohan all smiles leaving the Mercer Hotel

Lindsay Lohan spent more time in America in 2019 than most people realize. We had gotten used to Lindsay being away, in Europe, Russia and the Middle East, for years now. I have my theories about what she was doing overseas and how she was supporting herself, but the official story is that she was opening a nightclub in Greece, or just living a quiet life in Dubai. Or something. But now America’s cracked-out sweetheart is ready to return home permanently:

Lindsay Lohan has plans to kick off this decade with a return to America, the big screen and music. The 33-year-old actress, who is currently in Muscat, Oman, joined Andy Cohen and Anderson Cooper for a satellite interview on New Year’s Eve Tuesday and dished about what she’s got planned for movies and music in the coming year.

When asked if she has any resolutions for 2020, Lohan said, “Yes, I do. I’m managing my sister, so I want to really focus on me and everything that I can do in my life and come back to America and start filming again, which I’m doing something soon in this new year. And, you know, just taking back the life I’ve worked so hard for and sharing it with my family and you guys.”

Lohan is slated to star in Among The Shadows, which hits theaters on March 5, 2020. The film marks Lohan’s first role in a feature film since 2013’s The Canyons, though she currently has plenty of experience on the small screen. In addition to her short-lived reality television show, Lindsay Lohan’s Beach Club, the actress also judges the Masked Singer in Australia.

[From People]

If Lindsay was just some wayward actress who burned out, left the industry for five years and came back looking for work, I would think that it was a good PR play and smart branding. See: Renee Zellweger. But that’s not really the case here. Lindsay left America after years of legal and criminal issues, rehab, probation, brief stints in jail and open drug and alcohol abuse. Then there’s the small matter of whatever the hell she’s been doing for five years. So no, I don’t think the entertainment industry is going to welcome Lindsay back with open arms. Maybe the tabloids will welcome her back though. As for “I’m managing my sister…” Oh God, poor Ali.

Oh, and did you want to see the trailer for Among the Shadows? Ladies and gentlemen, this is the funniest sh-t I’ve ever seen. WEREWOLVES!

    I looked better at 45 than Lindsay at 33 – rode hard and put away wet is putting it mildly.

    When asked if she has any resolutions for 2020, Lohan said, “Yes, I do. I’m managing my sister…”

    Why does that sound like some P**p and H*e mess?

  3. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    Sharknado trailers are far superior.

  4. Penny says:

    Oh yesss, this is the trainwreck I need in 2020. Thank you, Lindsay.

  5. SingingTabloidStar says:

    Aw, I loved International Lindsay. I thought it was pretty cool that she traveled the world and became cultured these last 5 years, learning languages, etc. She’s the bad gal’s answer to Audrey Hepburn

    “Yes, I do. I’m managing my sister, so I want to really focus on me and everything that I can do in my life and come back to America and start filming again, which I’m doing something soon in this new year.”

    Lol at “I’m managing my sister so I want to focus on me.” Her sister is lucky to have someone so focused on themselves!

    • NotSoSocialButterfly says:

      This was the most awkwardly worded statement. Give a lot of insight into her scrambled mind.

    • Bread and Circuses says:

      That was my thought too. “I’m working for my sister, so I want to focus exclusively on me, me, me and never do that job or even think about it long enough to finish a sentence about it.”

    • Kosmos says:

      I was thrilled when she lived abroad–no more having to hear lurid stories about her stealing or being too wasted. I lost respect for her after all the years of her abuses and inability to be responsible for her actions. I doubt that she has changed that much. I wish the Kardashians would go live abroad, too!!

  7. Emily says:

    The movie looks bad and even with professional makeup, Lindsay looks nothing like her former self. I’m all for giving people second chances (and Lindsay has had many) but I wish she’d found a better vehicle for her return because that film looks like hot garbage.

    • SKF says:

      She’s actually already on Netflix. In season 2 of Sick Note which stars Rupert Grint and Nick Frost. I’ve only seen the first episode she’s in; but so far, she’s fine – actually pretty solid and decently funny. I think that was her proving she could do it and a comeback starter of sorts.

  8. HeyThere! says:

    I honestly wouldn’t even watch this if it was on Netflix in my own home. Looks awful.

  9. Originaltessa says:

    In my experience, there’s no way to reverse decades of drug use and untreated mental illness. You can get sober and get on the right meds, but you’re never the same, the damage is done.

    • hunter says:

      I don’t believe Lindsay has any genuine mental illness outside of being a selfish twat.

      • Bettyrose says:

        I think she has borderline personality disorder.

      • Mo says:

        One of the defining characteristics of several mental illnesses is that you come across as a selfish twat to people who live in a fantasy world where everyone’s worth is measured by how much “respect” they show others.

    • Mac says:

      Not to mention the sun damage. She needs to wear sun block every day.

  10. Mia4s says:

    “ just taking back the life I’ve worked so hard for”

    Is she….is she threatening us? 😬

    Oh Lord what is she “managing” her sister for?

    • Lady D says:

      She has so many lawsuits lined up in Cali and NY that it will cost her a fortune to come back. Do lawsuits have a best by date, or can they remain active forever?

      • Mia4s says:

        It depends. My guess is though that if she didn’t respond to them she may have some major default judgments waiting!

        Well…as long as she doesn’t drive this could all be very entertaining.

      • Justwastingtime says:

        Lord, I forgot about her driving.. weren’t a couple of her accidents on PCH ( which I drive everyday? )

    • Nightsky says:

      I heard rumors years back that her little sis was “modelling” in Japan. So yeah, you can just imagine how LL is “managing” her.

    • Bread and Circuses says:

      When has this person ever worked?

      She literally pissed away working opportunities by showing up late, hungover, or not at all. She quite famously doesn’t ever work hard.

  11. Jas says:

    It’s crazy, but I really want her to get a good role i mainstream US and really do well at it. Just once. I’m so curious as to whether or not it would be enough to straighten her out a little.

  12. Hmmm says:

    @hunter, I think she has borderline

  13. Trish-a says:

    I’m all for second chances too, but unless she wants to play Amy Poehlers mom in mean girls 2. She’s SOL. 33? Wow.

    • lucy2 says:

      This would be like her 12th chance though.

      Good luck to her and all, but she uninsurable, has seriously damaged her appearance, burned a LOT of bridges, and is notoriously difficult to work with, even when she was trying to regain her career before.
      The only way she’s going to get hired these days is as a gimmick.

    • Sarah says:

      She is on her 476th chance…

    • Who is Justice Beaver? says:

      My thoughts exactly! She has lived soooo many lives, hard-lived lives, for such a young age.

  14. Oliviajoy1995 says:

    She couldn’t even manage a club and she is managing her sister?

  15. Michael says:

    I could not even make it through the trailer. Seems like a cheap ripoff of Underworld. I do not begrudge her being employed but if she thinks she can still hang with A listers and be an “it” girl she is in for a rude awakening

  16. WendyWoo says:

    “I’m managing my sister, so I want to really focus on me” — She said so much there, and she doesn’t even realize it. 😂😂😂😂

    • Bread and Circuses says:

      Yep. She can’t even concentrate on her sister long enough to finish a sentence about her sister; the sentence must immediately pivot to Lindsay instead.

      Poor Ali, although that whole family appears cut from the same cloth.

  17. Swack says:

    Who will even hire her?

  18. Jax says:

    At least 2020 is being polite and giving us fair warning of what shenanigans lay before us, unlike 2019.

    I’m thinking the 2020 brand tag line could be something like:

    “2020: The Return of the Crackening!!!”

    Followed by some dramatic creepy piano.

  19. jenner says:

    America needs a big fat break. Please don’t do this to us.

  20. smee says:

    At least she’s consistently delusional….

  21. ChillyWilly says:

    Why the heck is she in Muscat? This girl is always in the strangest places.

    • SKF says:

      I mean, Muscat is lovely and one of my favourite cities in one of my favourite countries in the world. Oman is a stunning country and there’s loads to do there and the people are welcoming and hospitable. Since it’s Lindsay, I’ll also say there’s a pretty great party scene if you are connected (lots of boat parties). She’s lived in Dubai, which is super close, most people in Dubai go to Oman at some point you get a more chilled out, nature-filled lifestyle. It’s not random at all.

  22. The Recluse says:

    Poor lost soul.
    And she never learns.

  23. Cate says:

    It’s kind of sad really. At this stage in her life that she doesn’t have anyone reliable and sane to curb the delusions. She is going to come back to the U.S. on her high horse with all of her fake love and light nonsense and everyone in Hollywood is going to be like girl bye. She will legit be baffled why no one gives an eff about how she’s changed and ready to take back this glorious career and life that she thinks she is owed.

  24. Amelie says:

    So sad, it pains me to see reruns of Freaky Friday, Mean Girls, and The Parent Trap on TV when you see what she has become. Typical story of a child star gone off the rails unfortunately with unfettered access to drugs, alcohol, partying etc. Lindsay’s parents also pushed her into stardom and they are hot messes themselves. I think some of Lindsay’s siblings went to college though so hopefully some of them were able to break the cycle of trainwreckness.

  25. Renee says:

    That clip…..what the hell did I just watch??? LOL I’m dying.

  26. Steve Strange says:

    LIndsay, see Maitland Ward.

  27. Abby says:

    It really is hilarious and classic Lindsay to say in the same sentence that she’s managing her sister so now what she really wants to do is focus on herself. And she seems to think that saying something (like taking back the life she made for herself) makes it true.

  28. Peggy says:

    She was actually kind of funny on The Masked Singer in Australia… most of the humour came from her random guesses of Australians she had heard of, but she was way more alive and into it than expected.

  29. SilentStar says:

    I fully expect to see her antics and drama back in the gossip news again as soon as she gets back, and I can’t say a part of me won’t be fascinated. But then that will mean — God no — we can also expect to see her parents’ antics and drama back in the gossip news again! Ugh.

  30. styla says:

    You know…. I don’t want to see anyone fail or operate below their worth. I’m rooting for her but cringing at the same time.

  31. AppleTartin says:

    Didn’t she film this in 2015? If it’s taken 5 years to bring it to the public. It’s a bad movie. I bet SyFy even passed on it.

  32. huckle says:

    Why is she thanking Andy and Anderson? What she on their NYE show? Sorry if this has already been asked and answered.

  33. Nightsky says:

    Okay, you heard her America, time to stock up on penicillin and every other STD medication known to man.

    • Justwastingtime says:

      She isn’t even interesting.. it’s all self pity combined with grifting, lying, and loads of manufactured drama including stealing …er saving a child. Rinse and repeat and yawn.

  34. fluffy says:

    She’s probably just stolen all the jewelry in Europe and the Middle East and needs to restock.

  35. serena says:

    I’m not surprised but the trailer looks really bad, like really awful.

  36. JanetFerber says:

    Lady D, when you say, “She’s a thief, a grifter and a con artist,” you know these would be presidential qualities if she were a man, right?

  37. Cora says:

    I just feel so bad for her. I hope she ends up well.

  38. PennyR says:

    So what does Ali even do that needs “managing”?
