“And during all these tough times I feel like I’ve learned to understand the simplicity of life and birthdays,” Lohan continued, “I was thinking about how many birthdays I’ve had that are just like so extravagant and how lucky we all are to just have the people around us that we love and the people in our lives that we love and how simple is key.”

“I’m 34 now and it's been a beautiful day and I'm really happy and really grateful to have good people in my life and I look forward to sharing that with other people in my work and in everything I do from here on out,” the “Mean Girls” star concluded.

Lohan recently opened up about her experience living in Dubai during a recent appearance on the chat show “Lights Out With David Spade” to promote her new single, “Back To Me.” 

“It’s a city built on desert,” she said in the 17-minute video chat. “I came here in 2008 when they’d just finished building the Atlantis Hotel and there was none of this here. There was no DIFC, Downtown, Dubai Mall… anything that there is now.”

Lohan also suggested she has been thinking of returning to movie acting. Spade said: “I think they are redoing a ‘Mean Girl,’” To which Lohan replied, “Well, I kind of wanted to come back with like a ‘Mean Girls 2,’ with the same cast… That’s all in their hands really.”

Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra considers role in Arabic films

DUBAI: Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra Jonas revealed in an interview with Africa News this week that she would “love to” star in Arabic films.

“I just don’t speak the language,” said Chopra Jonas. “I think that I would love to be a part of the film industry anywhere. I love my job and I would learn a new language if I have to.”

The 38-year-old producer, who has a couple of Hollywood flicks under her belt, said she is working on an unscripted series with her husband, the American singer and songwriter Nick Jonas.

“I am developing a show with my husband which is for Amazon. It is based on the Indian tradition of sangeet (a music-filled pre-marriage ceremony),” she said.
