Lindsay recently told In Style magazine that by age 30 she wants to find true love, have a house to call home, and win an Oscar®. Lindsay admits she said those things, but in a casual manner. "I'd like to. I don't hope for everything—I'm setting extreme standards for myself," she says.
Is Lindsay's reputation as a so-called party girl true? "No. I mean, I've been acting my whole life. And this is what I love to do. And I'm very lucky and blessed to be able to do that," Lindsay says. "I'm 20 years old. Is it a crime to go…dancing with your friends? It's not. I have a life and I have my family and I have work and I have those three things."
Emilio says Lindsay was great to work with—and was always on time. "The media likes to focus on [the negative] because it sells. And the fact of the matter is I'd rather have them focus on how extraordinary she is in this film and how dedicated and how passionate she is in this role," Emilio says. "You see a young actress mature on film and you see her do, I think, the best work of her life."
