Taking a cue from Stacey Dash, who was criticized earlier this week for endorsing the Republican party ahead of the 2012 election, Lindsay Lohan announced her support for presidential candidate Mitt Romney for her concerns regarding unemployment. The 26-year-old starlet told reporters of her support for Romney-Ryan while at an event Thursday night for Mr Pink's Ginseng Drink at the Regent Beverly Wilshire in Los Angeles.
"I just think employment is really important right now," Lohan said. "So, as of now, Mitt Romney. As of now."
“It's a long story, but you're going to have to wait for that,” Fox News quoted her as saying. According to Fox, Lohan said she wanted to watch the Thursday Vice Presidential debate between Joe Biden and Paul Ryan but was unable to.
This isn’t the first time Lohan got a bit political. Last month, Lohan tweeted publically to President Barack Obama to "cut taxes for those who need it: middle-class families, small businesses" along with "those that are listed on Forbes as 'millionaires'."
But just back in April, Lohan attended the White House Correspondents' Association Dinner for President Obama.
Along with her new political views, Lohan also debuted a new reddish-brown hair color resembling her day as a young actress in “The Parent Trap” that she said was an accident.
"It’s actually the wrong colour than it’s supposed to be. But it’s the colour of my natural hair and it will get there,” Lohan told The Sun. Her new brightly colored hair was paired with a long sleeve beaded gown in a nude tone and platform peep-toe pumps.
Lohan, who was recently in a violent fight with her mother Dina which was made public on Wednesday morning, went to Los Angeles on Thursday, TMZ reported. The same day, the actress cleared rumors about the fight, which she initially said was the result of her mother acting out crazed on cocaine and escalated when she called her troubled father, Michael.
"I'm really regretful about the argument I had with my mother and it being made public," she told TMZ. "Mothers and daughters fight. You know, I called my father and told him some really hurtful and untruthful lies about my mom. My mom does not do cocaine, clearly. And that's a fact."
"[My mom is] an amazing woman," she added. "I think everyone kind of knows that my father's main objective had always been to destroy my mom…"
Lohan added that she "lied about things that I said just because I was angry and I was having a fight." The actress added that had her father not recorded the call, they “would've talked about it, and would've been fine in the morning. But my dad had to go the extra mile. A lot of [what she heard of the conversation between herself and Michael] has been edited for what sounded better kind of to his gain against my mom and me."
"I should've known better [than to call him]," she continued. "[But] I called my dad, because who else am I gonna call?"
