Lindsay Lohan’s getting a lot of attention for her upcoming interview with Harper’s Bazaar (check out her photo shoot for the mag here), where she basically confirms her relationship with Samantha Ronson, while stating explicitly that she’s not a lesbian.
“I think it’s pretty obvious who I’m seeing,” she said. “I think it’s no shock to anyone that it’s been going on for quite some time. … She’s a wonderful person and I love her very much.”
Here’s more, from MTV News:
Lohan was evidently grilled by the interviewer about her sexuality. Asked if she’d previously been with a girl, the actress laughed and said, “I don’t know. Maybe.” Had she ever been embarrassed about being attracted to a woman? “No.” Would she classify herself as bisexual? “Maybe. Yeah.” A lesbian? “No.
“I don’t want to classify myself,” she continued. “First of all, you never know what’s going to happen â€” tomorrow, in a month, a year from now, five years from now. I appreciate people, and it doesn’t matter who they are, and I feel blessed to be able to feel comfortable enough with myself that I can say that.”
Lohan also said she envisions herself getting married “eventually,” but whether to a man or a woman, “I don’t know.”
She said her family, except for her estranged father, Michael (who spoke out about her relationship with Ronson in August), has supported her in the relationship. “It’s never really come up as an issue,” she said. “We’re close; we’ve been through a lot. They’re supportive of me whether I’m with a guy or a girl. They’re just supportive of me as a person.”
She even spoke about how her 14-year-old sister, Ali, asked about Ronson â€” and here, she mentioned her by name. “Ali’s known Samantha for a really long time. And she’s like, ‘Whatever it is, I support you. I probably won’t ever do what it is you’re doing, but I’m happy for you.’ Ali’s very mature. I’ve told her that it’s okay to like a boy or a girl if you’re comfortable with it and it’s something you believe you want to do. And I told her not to be afraid of who she wants to be.”
She also threw in this little tidbit about her trainwreck lifestyle:
“I was going to clubs all the time, and it was not OK. I was so alone. It made me not focus on what I was doing … I was living here [at the Chateau Marmont hotel in Hollywood] for almost two years. Who blows that much money on a hotel? I could have bought a house!”
Heh, I remember the good old days of Lindsers living at the Chateau. For those of you unfamiliar with the Chateau Marmont, an single bedroom there costs around $400 a night. But I can assure you that is not where Lindsay was staying. The small cottages start at $520 a night. The bungalows? Start at $1800 a night. The two-bedroom penthouse suites? Start at $3700 a night. From what I’ve heard, Lindsay was staying in a bungalow, so she was spending around $2000 per night on accomodations. She could have bought one hell of a house for that kind of money. But I love that she’s willing to admit to her insanity and her mistakes.
