Lindsay Lohan says that, after years of legal trouble here in the United States, she wants to live in England for good.
Although in the middle of a run of David Mamet’s play “Speed-the-Plow,” Lohan had to run back to the U.S. briefly to fulfill the terms of a community service agreement she says she thought was done. The last-minute blitz of volunteer activity in the States fulfilled her probation terms, keeping her out of the slammer.
But now Lindsay Lohan says she is strongly considering moving to London to stay.
“I can definitely see myself settling in London permanently,” Lohan told the Daily Mail.
“For me, I feel more comfortable working from London. And it is beautiful. The architecture is incredible and the parks are so nice. I also love exploring different cities and using London as a base means I can go to more places. That’s really important to me.”
“I can go for a run here on my own,” Lohan said of living in London. “I do every morning, early. I needed to grow up and London is a better place for me to do that than anywhere else. In LA I didn’t know what to do, apart from go out every night.”
But one of the best things about living in London is that Lohan’s own personal woes are not seen as fodder for public consumption.
“You turn on the news in LA and it is all gossip about people. All the stuff that is going on in the world right now and this gossip is the news?” she said. “I love the BBC. I haven’t heard myself mentioned on TV since I have been here. That has been really weird for me, and great.”
I like that Lindsay Lohan has moved from LA to London & reformed her life. It's like The Parent Trap but with drugs & there's only 1 of her.

Not only does she not see her own name dragged through the headlines in London, she does not have to be subjugated to lurid news of others’ lives as much.
“I don’t even know who got married and who got pregnant,” she says.
Lindsay Lohan credits her life in london with helping her drop her old habits and grow up.
“I’m in a really good place. I’m blessed to have been able to do a play in London and start a different way of life,” she says.
“New York is very fast paced and it’s not like that over here for me. You grow up and change, and I’m really happy about that, as overall I feel a lot better. Moving here was a new start for me and my outlook on life is different now. Clean slate. Fresh start. Hard work pays off.”
