“My family is so important to me,” she said. “So every time I get the chance to involve my sister and my brother in everything I do, and my mom, I always take it. Because you have someone important to share it with, and those are the memories that count.”
By admitting that her actions affected her siblings, she explained how it led her to become the best version of herself as she got older.
“I feel like I really needed to lead by example as I got older and learned from my mistakes,” she said.
“Over time I realized how important family is above everything else in the world. So I’m very grateful that I was raised to appreciate the things that matter.”
Lindsay certainly had some rough years, struggled with substance abuse, went into rehab, and was even arrested multiple times.
Her first arrest was made on May 26, 2007, when she was charged with driving under the influence and possession of cocaine after a car accident in Beverly Hills.

She was arrested again on July 24, 2007 on charges of drink-driving, driving with a suspended license and possession of cocaine, and pleaded guilty a month later to felony cocaine use and drink-driving, earning her a one-day jail term. sentence, 10 days of community service and three years of probation.
That probation was revoked in May 2010 after she skipped a lawsuit in favor of attending the Cannes Film Festival. After that, she had to wear an alcohol monitoring device.
Over the next three years, she spent another two weeks in prison, went to rehab, and then received an additional 120 days in prison for a violation of her probation.
She was also arrested for stealing a necklace and hit and run, though the charges were dropped in the latter case.
Speaking to Vogue, Lindsay also looked back at some of her fashion choices over the years — both the good and the bad.
She seemed especially embarrassed by a Juicy Couture sweatsuit look she wore to the Neil Bogart Memorial Fund Annual Tour for a Cure event in 2002, where she cringed and covered the image in front of her.

“Oh, juicy tracksuits,” she remembered. “But why was I wearing flip flops and a scarf?”
She wore the outfit while filming Freaky Friday, recalling that hair color star Tracey Cunningham “was so upset she had to put these white highlights in my hair, and I was really just rocking the Avril Lavigne vibe, because that was my character, and I took in my daily life. What, I love Avril Lavigne, but it wasn’t everyday work for me.’
She also reviewed the iconic 2003 Young Hollywood cover of Vanity Fair, for which she posed with co-stars Hilary Duff, Amanda Bynes, Mandy More, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, Alexis Bledel, Raven-Symone and Evan Rachel Wood.
“No one knew each other,” she said. “I knew Raven-Symone because we had an apartment that we rented together.”
Both Evan Rachel Wood and Hilary Duff have since spoken out about making the cover, describing less than positive experiences.
Hilary, in particular, told Vanity Fair last month that it wasn’t a good day.

Hilary Duff recently admitted that the shoot was “a very stressful, anxiety-inducing day.” She didn’t say why, but she was in the middle of a feud with Lindsay over Aaron Carter at the time
“I remember thinking, ‘This is cool that I was included in this.’ But no, this was a very stressful, anxiety-inducing day,” she said.
Hilary didn’t explicitly say what made the shoot so stressful and anxious, but at the time she was in the midst of a feud with Lindsay over their shared history with Aaron Carter – with some overlap.
Lindsay reportedly tried to explain to Amy on the set of 2004’s Mean Girls [Poehler] and [Tina Fey] her beef with Hilary Duff,’ according to Weekly entertainment — and later took part in making fun of Hilary when she hosted Saturday Night Live in 2004, leaving Duff unhappy.
“I’m not here to talk bad about her the way she talks bad about me all the time,” Hilary later told Access Hollywood, adding that she didn’t consider it an “honour” to make fun of girl on SNL.
Speaking to Vogue, Lindsay didn’t mention Hilary at all, but seemed to point out that there may have been drama on set at the time — but it would be much more enjoyable today, nearly 20 years later.
“I mean, if you think about getting all these actresses in a room today, just hanging out together, I feel like it would be so different,” she said with a laugh.
