Los Angeles, July 15: Actress Lindsay Lohan says if she had her way, she wouldn’t be a “celebrity”.

“People have certain perceptions of me. For a long time, people looked at me as kind of a celebrity, which is something I never wanted. That’s not what I got into this industry for,” she said in an interview to BBC, reports huffingtonpost.com.

The 28-year-old spoke about her image in Hollywood and her innate desire to come back to acting. “I’ve been doing this since I was three years old and I’ve been on set since I was six. People kind of forgot that, and I think now is a good time,” she said of restarting her career.

“And what better than to do it with the great people that I’m working with on stage in London… so that people can focus on the fact that I’m in this industry because I’m an actress and an artist and not just someone you take photos of,” Lohan added.
