The actress opens up about life in the city, and the clothing line she’s developing here…

She’s been calling Dubai home for some time, and now Lindsay Lohan has opened up about just why she loves living in the city.

The Mean Girls actress, who recently visited the States to see family, told W Magazine this month she felt “so relieved” when she relocated from London to the Emirates.

“Now I don’t have to open suitcases and live out of hotels and bags. Everything is where it should be. It’s a cleansing of your head, which is what I needed, and it took me a while to do it,” the 31-year-old told the magazine.

Among the many benefits of life in Dubai (beaches, year-round sun… hey we’re biased), it’s the lack of paparazzi that Lohan cites among one of the city’s main attractions for her.


 “There’s a certain calmness that I find there. There’s no paparazzi, no cameras; that’s a big deal for me,” she said.

“I never considered people taking a picture ‘bothering’ me, but I don’t want people to misinterpret who I am as a person if they see me sneezing and they say I’m crying. I do really appreciate having the life where I can just go outside and not have to worry.”

The actress, who is set to shoot an all-female film project in Saudi Arabia later this year, also told W Dubai is “a very big place for female activists”.

“Women have a very strong community. It’s a whole different world, which is really cool. It’s a place you think women don’t have as much of a right to be themselves, but they actually have more than you’d imagine,” Lohan added to the publication.

The actress has been keeping more than busy in the city, recently revealing plans to launch her own beauty line this year, as well as create her own island off Dubai’s coast.

As if that wasn’t enough to be getting on with, Lohan is also working with a Dubai-based stylist to design her own clothing line, a collection the star described as “closer to haute couture”.
