LiLo: Sobriety is tough

Lindsay Lohan

Lindsay Lohan has revealed that trying to stay sober can be “scary”.

The Mean Girls actress is currently starring in a candid reality show on Oprah Winfrey’s OWN network.

The show follows the 27-year-old on her road to sobriety after years of partying and a court-ordered rehab stint, and in the latest installment, Lindsay discussed her battle to stay away from temptation.

“I’m sober but I’ve been very close [to relapsing]. It’s come very close and it’s really scary,” she revealed.

“I do love the nightlife and hearing loud music and dancing and laughing and having fun. That’s a great feeling. But it’s knowing when you’re able to be in that situation and not feel uncomfortable when someone has a drink around and stuff like that.”

Something else that Lindsay is struggling with is her career.

After finding success as a child and teen star, Lindsay’s personal life started to affect her day job and roles dried up, something which frustrates her now.

“I just want to be back on set. That makes me the happiest as a person – being able to be self-expressive through my work,” she said.

“That’s my therapy. That feeds my soul. That keeps me going and that gives me the energy I need in life in general.”

Lindsay also finds exercise helpful in her quest to better herself, particularly pole dancing classes.

The Canyons star was filmed in hot pants and a crop top practising her moves.

“It’s actually a really good workout,” Lindsay said. “It’s really empowering for women to get to know your body and yourself. I liked doing that kind of work out and I sweat more doing that than I do doing yoga, or getting on a treadmill, or anything else.”
