Lindsay Lohan Looking to Bounce Back Despite Tabloids

By Alexis Sezar on March 19, 2009

HOLLYWOOD, Calif. — Lindsay Lohan wishes she could do away with the tabloids, particularly since she feels like they've impacted her ability to find work.

"There's not much I can do about the fact that I've become a kind of tabloid obsession.  I can't change that.  And yes, the websites, the gossip pages, and all of that stuff have hurt my career — they're like the Burn Books of Hollywood," the 22-year-old actress reveals in the latest issue of Nylon.

Lohan has experienced her fair share of troubles in recent years, including two DUI arrests and a few stints in rehab, but the "Mean Girls" star insists she gets a bum rap.

"I really don't feel like I should have to prove myself to anyone because of living out my college years in the public eye," she tells the mag. "I'm glad everything happened the way it did."

While she'd love to rid the world of the paparazzi, Lohan isn't entirely against being around photographers.

"I love doing photo shoots… I mean, if I could just sign with IMG and do ad campaigns and model more, I'd do that," shares Lohan. "That's fun for me. That's not work."

As for getting her career back on track, Lohan says she's keeping busy on the phone. She tells the mag that she recently chatted with Oscar winner Sean Penn and the two have a great idea, but one little problem.

"We're trying to get Seth Rogen for this project, but Seth won't call us back," Lohan says. "So call us back, Seth, if you're reading this!"
