Lindsay Lohan identifies with Marilyn Monroe

Troubled actress Lindsay Lohan – who has had several stints in rehab and a string of legal problems, most recently 35 days under house arrest after breaching probation by stealing a necklace – insists she doesn’t want to be a “celebrity” and believes people no longer view her as a “real person”.

Comparing herself to late screen icon Marilyn Monroe, she said, “People in their mind have created who I am and act as if there is no real person inside of me – just like Marilyn.

“Marilyn never wanted to be just a celebrity – neither do I.

Lindsay (25) says she has always identified with Marilyn – who died in 1962 at the age of 36 – and says the blonde beauty inspired her to always want to appear strong and in control.
