Lohan Admits Drug Use, Eating Disorder

What a complete surprise!

Lohan comes clean in Vanity article
By HAYLEY BUTLER -- AllPop

Lindsay Lohan attempted to shed some light on her past year in the spotlight in a recent interview for Vanity Fair magazine.

In the rare and candid one-on-one session, Lohan admitted to using drugs and suffering from an eating disorder. Although she was not specific on what type of drugs she was using, she did say she has been battling with bulimia.

Lohan, who recently released her sophomore album "A Little More Personal (RAW)", got very personal with Vanity Fair, saying she knew she had a problem but didn't know how to deal with it.

"I was sick... I had people sit me down and say, 'You're going to die if you don't take care of yourself,'" Lohan told the magazine.

Lindsay also talked about her brief experience with drugs, which she says she used "a little" but quickly added, "I've gotten that out of my system." After alluding to cocaine use, Lindsay quickly adds: "I don't want people to think that I've done... you know what I mean? It's kind of a sore subject."

Lohan blames her troubled past with stress related to her father, her living in the spotlight and her breakup with first love, Wilmer Valderrama.

According to PerezHilton.com, Lohan's publicist tried to have the confession taken out of the article the next day.

Lindsay, 19, thinks her turning point came when she was confronted by "Saturday Night Live" creator Lorne Michaels who staged an intervention after her latest turn at hosting the show.

"I just started bawling. I knew I had a problem, and I couldn't admit it," she said. "I saw that 'SNL" after I did it. My arms were disgusting. I had no arms. My sister, she was scared. My brother called me, crying."

Lohan, who also added that she turned to shopping for comfort, said she is relying on her friends and family to help get herself happy and healthy again.

Most recently Lohan has been in hospital after an asthma attack. She is said to be resting comfortably and is set to begin shooting her latest film "Chapter 27" about John Lennon's killer, with rumored boyfriend Jared Leto who she describes as only a "great friend."

You know your life is bad when Lorne Michaels has to schedule an intervention for you.

I'll go out on a limb and hope that she finds the help she wants and needs.

All of this was pretty obvious just from looking at photos. Hope she gets help -- I think she actually has a bit of talent.

Lohan down (at admitting it).

Duff still to go.



Had a long talk with my 12 year old daughter about Lohan/Duff after she saw Cheaper By the Dozen 2.

We agreed that it's clear that Raven doesn't have the problem these two have.

When she went from "hot" to "Skeletor", I think most people figured there was a problem.

True, but a lot of young actresses shed their 'baby fat' around that age and it's not always associated with drug use. Sarah Michelle Gellar went from being a cute teenager in the first couple of seasons of BtVS to a scarily rail-thin young adult by season 6, and I don't think that was due to any coke problem. True, it wasn't as sudden as Lohan's, but the change was fairly rapid, obvious, and unfortunate.

Well, she never did that much for me (and I'm a HUGE Buffy fan), but she at least had potential during the high school seasons.

I'm shocked. I would have put my money on mostly drugs, but she claims it's mostly bulimia.

She was never a fav of mine either, but I don't think she looked as hot during the first year. Too much baby fat around the face, she was hottest from season 2 to 5, around season 6 she started too look too thin.

SMG lost her "baby fat" (misnomer since she was 20 when the show began), but she never went bug-eyed crackwhore.

Because she's a Hollywood actress. (And a good one, I think, although that part doesn't make you famous.)

A better question is: Why is she so hated? Did she leave you guys at the altar or something? (Not you, TB.)

I never even got that far. She completely ignored all my letters inviting her to the altar.
