(NEW YORK) — Lindsay Lohan wants to make a comeback in her career and hopes her upcoming portrayal of Elizabeth Taylor in Lifetime’s Liz & Dick will do just the trick. Still, the 26-year-old recently told US Weekly that she doesn’t want to be known as a fallen actress.
“I want to be known as an actress, not a troubled starlet,” she told the magazine. “People can think what they want, and the only thing I can do is prove them wrong.”
After a string of bad press, from her car accidents to her family’s public fall out, Lohan still claims that she has no regrets “because then I wouldn’t have been able to cry in scenes at the drop of a hat,” she said. “I have it tattooed: LIVE WITHOUT REGRETS.”
“I’m not saying I wanted to go to a jail cell, but I’ve drawn from all of it,” she continued.
Lifetime’s Liz & Dick premieres on Sunday, Nov. 25.
