Lohan: Don't call me 'teen queen'
I understand that Lindsay Lohan doesn't want to be pigeon-holed as a teen star. Now that she's maturing into adulthood, she wants to be considered for grown-up work. Definitely a good goal...
But here's the rub. If you want to be treated like an adult, and thought of like an adult, you first have to *act* like an adult. And Lindsay? Well, let's just say she hasn't exactly started down the road to deserving credit for acting like an adult of late.
Not too long ago, Tara Reid was complaining of the exact same thing: she wants to thought of as a "serious actress." I'll issue the same advice to Lindsay that I gave to Tara: Chill out.
You're going to have to prove to the big money people that your behavior isn't going to be a liability to a multi-million dollar project. Partying until the wee hours, engaging in immature teenage spats with other starlets, crashing your car, etc., are all strikes against you. Try toning down the lifestyle a bit. Let someone else drive: it's not like you can't afford a driver. In short, you're going to have to grow up before you can expect to be treated as a grown-up...
