Controversial actress Lindsay Lohan is back in the spotlight, but this time in a good way.

Lohan attended the red carpet dinner event for her new movie "Liz and Dick." She said she's happy about being interviewed by media not because of her trouble with the law but because of her work as an actress.

In the movie, Lohan plays the iconic actress Elizabeth Taylor. Lohan said she begged the producers to let her portray Taylor, who she said shares some similarities with her life.
