Lindsay Lohan opened up about what it has been like serving house arrest in an interview published today by Life & Style magazine. The actress has been confined to her $2.25 million home in Venice Beach, Calif., in connection with the theft of a necklace from a jewelry store.
“I’d like to get out more — just going out and having dinner," Lohan told the publication. "I was really upset not being able to go to my little brother’s birthday party. He just turned 16. That bummed me out."
She admits she has had plenty of friends over, and has been holding work-related meetings. But she says the house is alcohol-free. "When my friends come over, they’re not drinking," Lohan said. "Alcohol is not in my house, so it’s just not a part of my life."
Above all, the “Mean Girls” star says she’s determined to get her life back on track. "I’ve grown up — and I’m willing to do what I have to do to prove that,” she said. “I want to start my community service. I want to finish that so I can work in August and September."
Lohan added: “I do understand that I need to gain some of the respect back, but I’m willing to work hard for that. I understand the situations I’ve put myself in, and I don’t want to go back to that."
