Why LiLo waved Dubai to Hollywood
LINDSAY LOHAN says ditching Hollywood for a new life in Dubai is nothing to sneeze at.
The former party girl, 31, says her new home in the middle-east is the perfect place to be a ‘female activist’ — and she is even starring in a Saudi movie.
Describing her new expat life as a ‘cleansing of your head’, she added: ‘There’s a certain calmness that I find there. There’s no paparazzi, no cameras; that’s a big deal for me. I never considered people taking a picture bothering me but I don’t want people to misinterpret who I am as a person if they see me sneezing and they say I’m crying.’
After lining up a role in all-female flick Frame, shot in neighbouring Saudi Arabia, Lohan insists: ‘It’s a very big place for female activists. Women have a very strong community. It’s a whole different world, which is really cool. It’s a place you think women don’t have as much of a right to be themselves but they actually have more than you’d imagine.
‘To do an all-female project [in Saudi Arabia] is a milestone,’ the Mean Girls star told W magazine.
