Lindsay Lohan talks Donald Trump and converting to Islam on Good Morning Britain
Lindsay Lohan appeared on Good Morning Britain today to discuss everything from her troubled past to contemporary politics.
The 30-year-old actress joined hosts Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid on the breakfast show this morning, admitting that she is now ready to leave her wild youth behind her.
“I think LA is the problem, it moves so fast there and it’s easier to surround yourself with any person than it is to be alone. I noticed there was a point where I didn’t want to go out at night so I stayed home and I lost my friends because I wasn’t fun to them any more.”
Rumours that Lindsay had converted to Islam were recently sparked after the actress was pictured carrying the Qu’ran under her arm. The celebrity also deleted all of her Instagram pictures in January this year, leaving just the words “Alaikum salam” in her bio.
“I think any religion anyone chooses is a personal belief, my sister’s a Buddhist. [Converting] is a consideration I have, I don’t want to speak on something I haven’t finished yet, I don’t think that’s right.
“I find a solace in studying, not just the Qu’ran, other religion. Just like meditation. Something that feeds my soul and learning different cultures and beliefs and the Islamic culture I’ve found a lot of people, I feel like it’s a family to me.”
The topic of conversation soon turned to politics in her country and specifically what she thinks of her president, Donald Trump.
“I don’t agree with his policies and the things that he’s doing, but at the end of the day he is the President right now, so what’s the point in picking on someone instead of just seeing what they’re capable of or not capable of?”
“I think it’s just, people are making it overly dramatic. I do think his Twitter needs to be taken away or deleted. I just think you know, don’t kick someone when they’re down.”
Good Morning Britain continues weekdays at 6am on ITV.
