Sober Lindsay Lohan Says 'Hell No' To Living In Los Angeles

Lilo seems to be healthier and happier living as far away from L.A. as possible.

Lindsay Lohan has pulled a geographic move in the hopes of maintaining her sobriety, professing her desire to stay in London and declaring that she will never move back to Los Angeles.

The actress recently starred in a London production of Speed The Plow and has been living in the city for the last nine months. Although reviews of her performance were mixed, she has reportedly been thriving in the new surroundings and a life relatively-free of paparazzi.

"I can go for a run here [London] on my own…I do every morning, early, and I think how my friends in New York would still be up partying at that time. I needed to grow up, and London is a better place for me to do that than anywhere else,” she said to The Observer. "In L.A., I didn't know what to do, apart from go out every night. That's when my friends were free. And I would go out, and there would be all these cameras there, and that's when it became difficult."

Lohan has also spent time living in New York City since completing rehab in the summer of 2013 and appears open to living there, but said a return to the West Coast isn’t in the cards.

"I won't live in L.A. again—hell no,” she said. “My friends tell me shit when they come over I don't want to hear…I don't even know who got married and who got pregnant. You turn on the news in L.A., 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?"

But with her acting career largely dried out, she has been resorting to less conventional methods to earn money. She released a video game called The Price of Fame, which parodies celebrity culture by letting players build a persona, attract fans and complete tasks to become famous.

"Start a phony rap beef, buy a private peninsula, get butt implants, fight in an elevator, and give your baby Botox. It's all part of getting famous in Hollywood," reads the game description. "And why not punch a paparazzi while you are at it? Don't worry, you have a hotshot team of lawyers to get you out of trouble. And they probably deserved it."
