Lohan as Elizabeth Taylor
Troubled actress and tabloid star Lindsay Lohan has said that her high profile, year-long failed lesbian love affair with DJ Samantha Ronson left her heartbroken.
Speaking to Us Weekly, Lohan (26) admitted that she was not ready for a relationship when the affair began. “I need to love myself first before I could be with anyone else, and I was going through a lot,” she said.
She went on to add: “Two toxic people cannot be together. End of story. We’re friends now. That’s how it started so I think that’s how it was meant to be.”
Lohan, who described the affair that ended three years ago as “my last serious relationship,” also said that the glare of the media, which Ronson was not prepared for, further hampered its chances.
“I was bold enough to say, ‘Yeah I like a girl. And?’ That put her [Ronson] in a situation where she was being attacked every day. That’s not fair. And what am I left with? Heartbreak.”
Lohan has been promoting her latest endeavour, starring as Elizabeth Taylor in the made-for-TV film Liz & Dick.
Critics, however, have largely slated the film and Lohan’s performance as the iconic star. The Hollywood Reporter described it as “spectacularly bad” and a “classic of unintentional hilarity,” adding that Lohan is “woeful”.
The New York Times said that Lohan’s performance “is oddly passive, sleepwalking through scenes that call for passion and caprice”.
The New York Post was in the minority by saying that Lohan “is so often believable you might think you’re seeing the real thing”.
