Oh LiLo, you've come so far. It seems like just yesterday you were trying to get your parents back together and winning our hearts in Mean Girls. And then you went off the rails until as recently as this past January. But things are different now! Now you are turning 30 and into a completely different person who writes books and wants to have children and do crazy things like act, apparently.
That's right, America's wayward niece is celebrating the big 3-0 tomorrow (they grow up so fast). And in an interview with Vanity Fair, she said she is feeling hopeful about the next decade of her life, in particular "making more films, writing my book, starting my charity, working with children a lot," and "maybe having some of my own [kids] soon–after I get some movies done first."
This is a far cry from the days when Lohan's main objective was "trying to sneak vodka in the club without getting caught by the paparazzi." A toast to progress (hopefully with sparkling water)!
As far as the hypothetical father of her hypothetical future kids, signs point to her current beau Egor Tarabasov. She's mostly kept her relationship with the 22-year-old Russian real estate tycoon on the DL, though a recent pic of Lohan sporting a big ol' rock on her hand sparked rumors of an engagement. But a source told People that Lohan "seems really happy" but is too young to marry.
In the meantime, she is in the process of writing her book, which she hopes will serve as a kind of How To for people going through rocky times, a subject she is more than qualified to write about. "I am very excited to share my personal experiences in life and how to overcome obstacles," she said. "I hope that my words will connect with those who need some guidance when [or] if they are in a tough place."
Reflecting on her notoriously turbulent past, Lohan said she "wouldn't call things regrets, per se," but she's not entirely proud either. "I can't turn back time," she said. "But if I could, I would have listened more to my mother and gone back home to N.Y.C. earlier in life and chosen my friends more wisely."
Oh, well. Sometimes you drive drunk and go to jail and rehab a whole bunch of times and accidentally insult the Arab-speaking world with an Instagram post. But then you turn 30 and WHAM! New decade: new you.
