In it, Lohan discussed what she's been up to while keeping a low profile, as well as her acting career and her family life. Here are some of the highlights:

1. Lohan said it was an altercation with her ex-fiancé, Russian socialite Egor Tarabasov, that prompted her to change her life.

The actor and businessperson was referring to a violent incident with her ex on the beach that made headlines in 2016. The altercation was filmed and put online.“That was the moment where I switched and I was like, ‘I’m going to take control of my life completely, and fire everyone and just rehire them when I’m ready,’” Lohan told the Times.

“That was the moment where I switched and I was like, ‘I’m going to take control of my life completely, and fire everyone and just rehire them when I’m ready,’” Lohan told the Times.

2. “There’s a business side to my life now, but I’m not in America, so no one knows about it, which is nice for me,” said Lohan.

She is now focused on running Lohan Beach House, a club in Mykonos, Greece.

According to the Times, Lohan was very much involved with the details of designing the club, right down to the music, and she has plans of opening more on the Greek island of Rhodes and in Dubai.

3. Lohan is living in Dubai, where invasion of privacy with photography is strictly controlled, and it's where she said that she can find peace. "It’s the safest place. It’s less demanding. America is always like, ‘Go go go go go!’” she said.

“I don’t have to turn on the news and see about the Kardashians," Lohan said. "I don’t have to see anything anymore. I choose what I want to see and how I want to live.”

“I don’t have to turn on the news and see about the Kardashians," Lohan said. "I don’t have to see anything anymore. I choose what I want to see and how I want to live.”

4. Though most people remember a time when Lohan was the subject of gossip magazine fodder, she's adamant about keeping her past behind her. "I’m a normal, nice person. A good person. I don’t have any bad intentions," she said.

“Like, people have to just let go of it and stop bringing it up because it’s not — it’s gone,” she continued.

“It’s dead. And that’s the most important thing to me.”

5. She now finds peace by meditating at least twice a day — a habit she picked up from Oprah Winfrey.

6. Lohan has seemingly managed to block out most news about President Donald Trump, who made remarks about the actor being "deeply troubled and therefore great in bed" on the The Howard Stern Show in 2004.

“Here’s the thing: very simple with politics,” Lohan said. “He’s the president. No matter what anyone says, he’s still the president. I have no feeling. I have no emotion.”

She did say she is still friends with his youngest daughter, Tiffany Trump, calling her "a really sweet girl."

7. In the past, Lohan's mother and father, Dina and Michael, were constantly in the news and have a history of arguing with each other. But Lohan now keeps some distance between herself and her family, mostly speaking to them via FaceTime.

“Look, I’m not in control of my family,” she said. “I’m only in control of myself. We’re all friends. My mom and dad are friends, everyone’s good.”Lohan's parents recently sought help to settle their differences on MTV's Family Therapy With Dr. Jenn in 2016.

Lohan's parents recently sought help to settle their differences on MTV's Family Therapy With Dr. Jenn in 2016.

8. And should anyone try to disrupt the peace Lohan has created, she said she'll immediately cuts ties with them. “If anyone in my life for one second, I feel unsafe with, they’re out,” she said.

“Very simple. This is it. I’m not going to complicate things. Because I’m a caretaker, I always want to give to people.”

9. She's still very much into acting. She's working on a project with Tina Seskis, who wrote The Honeymoon, a novel Lohan was drawn to.

“I’m reading this book and taking notes on it, like, ‘This is like my life, something that happened to me in my life, oh my God! I need to buy this book! I need to meet this woman!’ She’s incredible," she said.

10. Lohan wouldn't pose for photos for the Times story unless she was paid, according to the newspaper.

Instead, the Times used a bunch of photos of people enjoying her beach club — as well as one candid shot of her emerging from the sea.
