Washington, Feb 29 : Hollywood actress Lindsay Lohan for the first time has spoken out about her troubled past year - from legal hassles to her stint in rehab.
The 21-year-old actress revealed that she had lot of things going on in her life that pushed her into drugs and hard-partying ways.
"I had a lot going on in my life and that was a way of hiding from it," People quoted Lohan as saying.
"I hadn't seen my dad; I had a lot of work stress 'cause I was constantly working and never took time to stop.
"Everything was go-go-go, and the easiest thing was to run away from it, going out and drinking at night.
"You know, you don't have to think when you let go sometimes.
"But I didn't realize it was getting in the way of my work - what I've worked for my whole life," she added.
Now, the 'Mean Girls' star is looking for a good script and a great role.
"Right now I just want to find a great script, a great role," she said.
"I was so used to working and working and working, and for a good few months there was nothing for me to do. Now I know what it's like to be an out-of-work actor, and how much it scares me," she added.
