Lindsay Lohan wants to make a difference.
The actress, 23, opens up to UsMagazine.com about filming a BBC documentary on child trafficking in India.
“Making this documentary for BBC3 has allowed me to lend my voice to the real hardship faced by children who are trafficked,” she says.
“The strength of the young boys and girls I met has been truly humbling, and I hope my presence in India will bring awareness to the really important issues raised in making this film,” she adds.
In a new clip released online, Lohan — who dons oversized sunglasses while being chauffeur-driven through slums — says, “The whole situation is heartbreaking because the parents aren’t necessarily in the wrong, the children obviously aren’t in the wrong. The traffickers are in the wrong because they know what they’re doing.”
Last month, Lohan Twittered about her experience.
“Over 40 children saved so far… Within one day’s work… This is what life is about… Doing THIS is a life worth living!!!” she wrote. “Oh, and I’m talking about being in India.”

Do you think she was really humbled? I don’t. First of all, she was barely there. I think the whole trip was something like two days, in-country. That’s not long enough for Lindsay to sober up. She probably thought the Indians were part of her normal delusions. And beyond that, since her trip, Lindsay has been creating “Lohan Mayhem” since Christmas, taking her little sister down to St. Barth, dressing up like a harem girl, smacking guys in bars, putting on weepy performances for the paparazzi. How has Lindsay “changed” from this experience. Oh, my bad. She never claimed that the experience “changed” her, just that she was “truly humbled”. Maybe she was only humbled for a minute or so.
By the way, Lindsay’s crack-tweets have been all over the Haiti situation. A couple of them even sound lucid! Well, sort-of. She’s trying to get information out about donations and stuff, so bless her heart.
