Actress Lindsay Lohan says she is straight roughly four years following her romance with celebrity DJ Samantha Ronson. Lohan first confirmed the romance in 2008, and their coupling ended sometime the following year.

The 26-year-old Lohan told Piers Morgan that her affair with Ronson was just her “looking for something different.”

“I like boys,” Lohan told Morgan in a Daily Mail interview.

When Morgan pressed, asking whether the Mean Girls star was bisexual, Lohan answered, “Not really.”

“I like being in a relationship with a guy. But there's something just different about it with a woman. When I was with Samantha, I didn't want to leave, because I didn't want to be alone. It was very toxic. And her family controlled anything she did.”

“Were you in love with her?” Morgan asked.

“I still love her as a person.”

“But were you in love with her?”

“I think there was a point when I was.”

“So, you're probably straight?” Morgan suggested.

“No, I know I'm straight. I have made out with girls before, and I had a relationship with a girl. But I think I needed to experience that and I think I was looking for something different.”

Trish Bendix, managing editor for lesbian entertainment blog, criticized Lohan's comments, saying that they undermined the gay rights movement.

“Celebrities like Lindsay are often treated as unofficial spokespeople and when they are part of our community, what they say about sexuality can directly affect how anyone who knows little about LGBTs think about us,” Bendix wrote. “Lindsay Lohan may only be speaking about her own preferences and ideas about love and relationships, but, sadly, she's a voice that is heard above others because she is popular tabloid fodder. She might not be seen as the most credible source as of late, with her personal issues of substance abuse and dependency being made quite public, but renouncing her sexuality or discrediting her relationship with Samantha ends up lending homophobes and the ex-gay movement some unintended legitimacy.”
