Lindsay Lohan on why she didn't make a trip to Africa after shooting The Canyons, a journey she originally said she wanted to make after the film wrapped.

I needed time to figure out all the crap in my life that I’d created for myself, essentially, and I kind of realized, What am I doing? I like doing this. I like being here. This makes me happy. There was a line in the Elizabeth movie where she says, 'I'm so bored, I’ve never been taught what to do when I’m not working,' and I’m kind of figuring that out now.
