LOS ANGELES -- Troubled actress Lindsay Lohan says she wants her career back and the respect she used to have when she was doing "great movies."
The 24 year old actress told Vanity Fair Magazine that she has put her legal problems behind her and has learned that she needs to stop surrounding herself with people that lure her into trouble.
Lohan was released from rehab a week ago after spending 22 days at UCLA Medical Center.
"I want my career back. I want the respect that I had when I was doing great movies. And if it takes not going out ot a club at night, then so be it. It's not fun anyway," Lohan told the magazine.
"So many people around me would say they cared for the wrong reasons," she said. "A lot of people were pulling from me, taking from me and not giving. I had a lot of people that were there for me for, you know, the party."
Lindsay is continuing to undergo outpatient treatment at UCLA several times per week.
The "Mean Girls" star was sentenced to 90 days in jail and 90 days in a substance abuse treatment center for violating her probation in a 2007 drug case. She is currently on supervised probation. She must also submit to random drug tests twice a week. If she fails a test or misses one, she would face 30 days in jail.
Lohan is also said to be seeking permission to go to New York City in early September, where her mother, Dina, has said her daughter will be able to live a more healthy life than in Los Angeles.
Lohan checked into the UCLA rehab facility on August 2 for a 90 day court-ordered stay. She entered the facility after spending 14 days in jail.
