Lindsay Lohan Talks Returning To Acting In Italian 'Vanity Fair'

If there's one thing to admire about Lindsay Lohan, she isn't lazy. While under house arrest, the 24-year-old actress has managed to violate her parole, tape a commercial and, most recently, stage an Italian Vanity Fair photo shoot.

Not a stranger to magazine covers, (oh, how they love her!) in this VF interview, Lohan is super-duper blond and, like a cooped up teenage princess, plays dress up in her LA pad.

With her grueling month-long house arrest at an end, Lohan talks about her mistakes and her future, the gun she keeps in her pink fur jacket, the fact that jail is a terrible place and her plans to get back into acting.

And while that all sounds fine and good, here's the thing--Lohan is a number of years, and a number of rehab-stints from that fresh-face red head in 'Mean Girls.' If Lohan would be able to turn over a new leaf, could she really get her career back? It's not so much of a forgive-and-forget tale, but for this party girl, the straight-and-narrow has never been her favorite road; her reinvention could prove to be an impossibly tall order.

Cynicism aside, sure, it's possible. Like the actress said, translated from the VF article, "I want to be an actress and I'm good. You learn from your mistakes, right?"

Fingers crossed, Lindsay!
