Lindsay Lohan regrets not having social media as fame “controls narrative”
Even though social media has many disadvantages, Lindsay Lohan regrets not having this tool at her disposal early in her career.
36-year-old actress “Parent Trap” recounted Cosmopolitan There is “too much” social media these days, but she admitted that it would allow her to control the “narrative” on her own terms.
“When I started in the industry, none of us had a say in controlling our own narrative. There were photos of paparazzi and then people were running with them, ”she said in the newspaper.
“So I think it’s really good that nowadays people can say who they are and who they want to be. And I admire and appreciate it. I’m a little jealous because I didn’t have it. “
The “Mean Girls” star, who was only 12 years old when she came into the spotlight, also touched upon negative aspects of social media such as intimidation and harassment from keyboard warriors and trolls.
“You have to take everything people say with a grain of salt and just be yourself. And slow down because everyone is so fast now, she continued. “People just keep going. You need to chill out.
“I think it moves really fast and I’m just trying to keep up as best I can. And I check everything before I send it out. I’ll send it to people – because you have to, ”she added.
Lohan now lives in the United Arab Emirates with her husband Bader Shammas.
The actress moved to Dubai with a Kuwaiti-born financier in 2014 to start afresh after her scandalous personal life in the United States.
The pair tied the knot in July this year after Shammas asked the question last November.
