In a recent interview, Lohan admitted that the names of male Hollywood actors published by InTouch magazine in March, was indeed a list of her sexual conquests. The salacious handwritten list was quite a revelation, given that it contained the names of multiple A-list actors. The magazine obtained the list anonymously and released the names in several feature articles.
In an appearance on Andy Cohen’s show, Watch What Happens Live on Thursday, Lohan was asked a battery of questions about her career and sexual history. While she handled all the other questions with ease, she was evasive about the scandalous sex list, saying that she could “neither confirm nor deny” the truth behind the collection. But after some prodding by Cohen, Lohan finally conceded that she had listed her sexual liaisons as her “…fifth step in AA at Betty Ford.”
The fifth step of Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) asks that the participant admit “…to God, to ourselves, and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs.” According to Lohan, writing out the list of her sexual conquests that includes recognizable names like Justin Timberlake, Orlando Bloom, Zac Efron, Colin Farrell, Jamie Dornan, Ashton Kutcher, and the late Heath Ledger, among others, was a part of her recovery process.
The 27-year-old actress told Cohen that it was really unfortunate that the list had been released. She said that the list was her own and that “…someone, when I was moving during the OWN show [serialized documentary], must have taken a photo of it. That’s a really personal thing.” Coming clean on Cohen’s show, she said that the entire experience was terrible and “just mean.” In the same interview, she also admitted to Cohen that Samantha Ronson was her first lesbian lover.
Lohan, who started her career as a child actor, has worked in a number of commercially successful movies like Freaky Friday and Mean Girls. In recent years, she has done work for television shows like Ugly Betty and a biographical TV film called Liz & Dick in which she portrays Elizabeth Taylor.
She also debuted a couple of very successful studio albums. Her first album, Speak was released in 2004 and was certified platinum. A Little More Personal (Raw) came out in 2005 and was certified gold. A household name, Lohan seemed all set for a successful acting and singing career.
However things started to fall apart for the young actress as she became grist for the tabloid mill. Stories detailing her over-the-top partying and lifestyle started appearing regularly in different media. In 2007, she was stopped twice for driving under the influence, which led to her being put on probation. She also went into rehabilitation facilities three times that year. Between 2010 and 2013, Lohan relapsed and went back to rehab three times. The young actress has appeared in court 20 times and has spent 250 days in five different rehab facilities. She has also been in and out Los Angeles County jail and has served about two weeks in lockup.
As Lohan continues to fight legal issues stemming from misdemeanors and probation violations, this latest brouhaha over her list of sex partners has unleashed another round of paparazzi chasing and online chatter about her. The now infamous list, which contains the names of 36 famous and not-so-very-famous Hollywood names, has reportedly been “very humiliating” for the young star. Lohan told Cohen that she would be discussing her list of sexual conquests in Lindsay, a documentary detailing the trials and tribulations of her life. The program is currently being shown on Oprah Winfrey’s network channel.
