Lindsay Lohan Recalls Weird Experience Auditioning for Oliver Stone

The 'Mean Girls' star admits in an interview that she finds audition process scary, causing her to panic at request for her to read for a role.

AceShowbiz - Lindsay Lohan has only auditioned for one role in her career because she is terrified of the experience.

The "Mean Girls" star started acting when she was a young child in the 1990s and has appeared in numerous TV and movie projects. However, she reveals she finds the auditioning process scary and will no longer read for a role because she knows she will not do well because of her nerves.

"I only auditioned for 'The Parent Trap' (in 1998)," she tells Variety. "I would be terrified to audition. I don't even know what it would be like. I think I would freeze. My agent asked me to read for something, and I was like, 'I can't.' I would panic. It's such a different experience. I don't think I could do it."

"Someone asked me to audition once - it was Oliver Stone for 'Savages', and I met with him and they wanted me to read, and I said, 'I'm really, really bad at this, and I'm going to forget everything the second I start, so I might just ad-lib it'," she adds. "And he was like, You were great.' And I was like, 'OK.' It was such a weird experience."

Lohan is currently working a few movie projects as a producer and she is interested in taking on more work behind the scene.

"I love acting. It's my passion. But I like being behind the scenes," she says. "If I'm not filming at the moment, I need to be creative somehow. I can't just sit and do nothing. If I'm not on a set, then I'd rather do something, so I started my own company - Seven Wonders Prods. - and I like that it's just mine and that I don't have to answer to people anymore. I can just do it myself. It's nice to have that power back. I want to keep acting and maybe directing."
