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.
Yes, it was chaos. It would be good for a few months, and then it would get chaotic again. It was like walking on eggshells when my father was around. He won’t change. I just think there comes a point where you just kind of have to accept what it is. Whenever I do try to bring him back into my life, he creates chaos for me and uses it to his advantage. He’s been really good and then really crazy my whole life.
