LiLo: London is so chilled

Lindsay Lohan says London, UK, has been a nice change from fast-paced New York.

The American actress has swapped the States for the UK, where she will be treading the boards in play Speed-the-Plow for the first time tonight. It follows a court-ordered stint in rehab last year, which saw Lindsay switch from a party animal to a career-focused businesswoman.

She credits England’s capital with helping her find inner peace at the end of a long day.

“I’m used to such a fast pace in New York - things do close at normal times here,” she smiled to TV show Good Morning Britain.

“In New York, it just keeps going. It’s nice to have no choice but to shut down. It’s a nice change; it’s been lovely.”

Lindsay, 28, has had to deal with plenty of media speculation about her health and behaviour in the past. There were reports last year that she was turning up late for rehearsals on the set of erotic movie The Canyons, which also starred James Deen.

Lindsay has managed to take any criticism on the chin and hopes her turn on London’s West End stage will turn things around.

“A lot of people have a misconception of me as a celebrity or person, but I always did this as I love the art of it,” she explained.

“I can just look on my craft and hopefully people will take that with them rather than the other distractions. It comes with territory; everyone’s entitled to their opinion. There will always be haters, but that’s just normal.”

The star added she’s feeling nervous ahead of tonight’s debut, but that her co-stars Richard Schiff and Nigel Lindsay have been very supportive.
