The actress described the incident as “jarring”.
Lindsay Lohan has revealed she was recently stopped at an airport and asked to remove her headscarf.
In an interview with Good Morning Britain hosts Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid, the actress said she was flying to New York from Turkey, and had been wearing the headscarf as a sign of respect.
Lohan said she was singled out by an airport worker, who asked to see her travel documents.
“She opened my passport and saw ‘Lindsay Lohan’ and started immediately apologising. But then she said, ‘please, take off your headscarf’.”
Lohan said the situation was “really jarring”, and left her feeling “a little intimated”.
“What scared me was, in that moment, how would another woman who doesn’t feel comfortable taking off her headscarf feel?”
The Mean Girls star was also grilled on whether she was planning to convert to Islam, after many months of speculation surrounding her religion.
In 2015, she was photographed carrying a copy of the text, and later explained Saudi friends had gifted it to her and she was eager to learn more about it.
“I think that me studying the Quran is something that I’ve found solace in… nothing is confirmed yet,” Lohan said in the latest interview.
“I think any religion anyone chooses is a personal belief. It’s a consideration I have.”
When asked by Morgan why she was “reluctant” to speak about it, Lohan replied: “I don’t want to speak on something I haven’t finished yet. I don’t think that’s right.”
