Lindsay opens up to RG Magazine about fashion and future plans.
By Rosana Rodini
RG Magazine: Brought you this playboy from your fans, they’re begging for you to see them outside. They say they love you since you lighten up your fist cigarette. LL: I’ll autograph it, can you give to them? And for the record, I’ve only smoked my first cigarette at 19. But I can’t stop for them (the fans). I arrived today and still have a party to go. This is my first time in Brazil and, ironically, I have a lot of friends who are also in Sao Paulo because of Lollapalooza, like Eddie Vedder from Pearl Jam. Also I want to go to the festival to see this musician, Gary Clark Jr., he’s amazing. I don’t know him personally, maybe tomorrow… RG: You came to Brazil by invitation of a fashion brand, John John. You’re an actress, but do you see yourself as a fashion icon? Who’s your icon? LL: I love Elizabeth Taylor, obviously. I find it amazing the way she dressed in the 70’s. White boots and shorts! People forget about it. Brigitte Bardot, always a muse. And I love Kate Moss. But if I see myself as an icon? This is a biased question. But I’ll accept as a compliment, if you mean it. RG: Fame and exposure are something natural in your life, since you’ve been in the spotlight since you were young? LL: Since I’ve been ten… I got used to fame. I like working, I love making films, I think it’s delightful to tell stories and I love photograph. And there’s the travels, meet new people, the experiences. But the pressure of the paparazzi is frightening. It’s like a constant photo of your life. That’s what I find unfair. I’m from New York and I went back recently because is more livable. It’s a nightmare to live in Los Angeles. RG: You had to adapt your life to it? LL: I’ve never done something different. The rest is just what people listened and went forward. And as they listen to… RG: What’s your plans after leaving Brazil? LL: Besides come back to rehab? That’s where you were trying to get? Well, after rehab I’ll promote a new film and co-produce and direct another. There’s also possibly a work with Woody Allen. But don’t ask me more because I can’t talk about it. It’s big. And a secret as well. RG: Are you dating anyone? LL: I wouldn’t tell you if I was. I just met you! And our time is over. RG: We can talk more after you party… LL: If you make me your covergirl, dear…
“I think my two DUIs were totally irresponsible – a stupid mistake… Everyone thinks I’m this crazy drug addict who shows up late to everything and behaves so badly. But I’m not. I’m bad with timing. I always panic when people rush me. I’m like, ‘I’ll be there half an hour early if you just give me my space and don’t call me every five seconds.”
