In Hollywood, a tattoo is worth a thousand words. So even though Lindsay Lohan
remains coy about her relationship with deejay Samantha Ronson, their matching tattoos say it all.
"Samantha has a bunch of stars, so I got that," Lohan, referring to a star tattoo on her hand, tells Marie Claire
in their October issue
. Then, pointing to a little heart, she says, "she got this."
"I'm really happy," Lohan says, suggesting that Ronson has been a positive force in her life. "She's a great person. And she's a great influence on people around her. But I think that anything that's changed [in] my life is because of me. I've gone through it, and I've learned to deal with it and I've made the decision to move forward."
Now, Lohan has plenty to look forward to. With her next film, Labor Pains,
due out in 2009, the actress, who has been living with Ronson since May, indicated to Marie Claire
that she is looking to buy a new home "with someone." Could it be the "someone" with the matching tattoo? Lohan won't say.
Also on the horizon for the actress/singer: getting back to the recording studio. "This business is very 'go, go, go,' and you're constantly surrounded by people, and then everything stops," Lohan says in excerpts provided by the magazine. "So you can feel invalid in a weird way. I find [the recording studio] therapeutic.”RELATED ARTICLE:
