Lindsay Lohan Opens Up

It's tiring being Lindsay Lohan.
In a new magazine interview, the teen queen opened up about the reason behind her five-day hospitalization last month--she was plain exhausted.
"I was overtired and working myself to death," Lohan, 18, tells Jane magazine. "When you're young, you think you can just keep going and going."
Lohan was working on the set of her upcoming film, Herbie: Fully Loaded, and recording her debut album, Speak, when she began feeling ill and retreated to the Los Angeles pad of then boyfriend, Wilmer Valderrama.
Apparently, the affection of her significant other was not enough to get the Mean Girls star out of her health funk.
"He tried to take care of me, and I'm screaming in the bedroom," Lohan tells Jane. (Shockingly, the duo split a scant few weeks later.)
Lohan then sought the advice of her doctor, who discovered she was running a 103-degree fever and packed her off to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center for some much needed R&R.
In an interview with Extra, Lohan says that exhaustion is the most likely reason for her physical breakdown, but not necessarily the only culprit.
"We haven't really found out," she told the TV show before running down a host of ailments: "I was really overworked and really tired...had a kidney infection...stress...wasn't eating right...wasn't getting enough sleep...I had an asthma attack..had a cold...a form of mono. I was really sick. I was really scared. I'm trying to take care of myself."
In any case, as she says in Jane, "I couldn't work. No one could bother me."
One of the people who was unable to bother the auburn-tressed thesp during her hospital stay was her father, Michael Lohan, who has had a difficult relationship with his family of late and reportedly couldn't get past the lobby to visit.
However, Papa Lohan still managed to irk his daughter when he spoke about her illness in a magazine interview, saying, "I've heard the rumors, and I won't condone drinking and drugs."
It was enough to make the Freaky Friday star freak out. She lashed out at her father in an interview of her own earlier this month, in which she told Access Hollywood she was sick of staying mum about her pop.
"I have tried to keep quiet long enough," Lohan said. "Unfortunately, my father has continued to move forward with his actions as a cry for attention. He has started false allegations regarding myself and the cause of my illness. I feel this is hurtful, and it angers me to see that my own father would stoop to such a level."
Perhaps her disappointment in her own parental figure inspired Lohan to start thinking about starting a brood of her own. The thesp tells Jane that she was already planning the next stage in her life.
"I want to get married young," Lohan says. "I want to be a young mom."
In the meantime, Lohan has plenty on her plate. Aside from the upcoming Herbie, she has five additional films in the works, including next year's Fashionistas, costarring pal, Paris Hilton.
On top of her big-screen gigs, Lohan's pop album Speak is due out Dec. 7. Her first single, "Rumors," has been climbing the charts since its release.
