The A-lister also opened up about her Quran studies in a Kuwaiti interview.

She may not have converted to Islam, but Lindsay Lohan has admitted dabbling in traditional fasting.

The actress revealed she has previously abstained from food during daylight hours, and said the process was tough.

“I did Ramadan for three days with my friend from Kuwait – it was hard but it was good. It felt good,” the 30-year-old told YouTube host Shoaib Rashid in an interview uploaded this week.

The Mean Girls actress also told the Kuwaiti-based Arab language show Swar Shoaib that she’s studied around 15 pages of the Holy Book.

“I also listen to the Quran on my phone, I have an app,” Lohan revealed, adding that she’s practiced writing some of the verses in Arabic.

Reading the Quran makes the star feel “calm”, she said, adding that it’s “a solace and a safe thing for me to have”.

The actress, who relocated to Dubai last year, is “in a period of renewal” according to her management, and plans to spend much of 2017 volunteering at refugee camps and setting up her own production company in the UAE.

“I am so excited for this new chapter in my life!” Lohan told the Daily Mail, revealing she’s “very excited for what the new year holds”.

Her move to the emirate, which coincided with the deleting of her social media accounts, led many to believe she had converted to Islam – a claim her management has denied. 

Earlier this month Lohan wiped her Instagram and Twitter accounts clean, leaving just the Arabic greeting “assalam alaikum” – meaning “peace be upon you” – on the former.

While the actress didn’t talk about a possible conversion on the show, she did open up about being photographed with the Quran in 2015.

“I was just holding a religious book, but people in America didn’t like it, they judged me for it and were saying nasty things,” she told Rashid, adding that she’s also tried Islamic prayers.

Last year the actress revealed the pictures had sparked widespread backlash in her home country, where she was “crucified” for her interest in Islam.

“They made me seem like… I was a bad person for holding that Quran.

“I was so happy to leave [America] and go back to London after that, because I felt so unsafe in my own country. If this [Islam] is something that I want to learn, this is my own will.

“I can’t imagine how many people go through this all the time, and that made me feel like an outsider.”
