The 30-year-old star, who has recently spent time in London and Turkey, headed to a taping of The View at ABC Studios on Friday, decked out in a $3,500 black Gucci bomber jacket and black leather leggings and carrying a $1,850 tiger-print Gucci bag. She had a huge smile on her makeup-free face and gave a peace sign to photographers, despite telling the Daily Mail on Friday that her interest in Islam has made her feel ostracized in her home state.
“I’ve studied the Quran for quite some time,” she told the newspaper during a Facebook Live Q&A session. “It’s a process to convert to anything. I respect all religions. … It’s a beautiful religion, and I am a very spiritual person.”
Lohan explained that she finds peace in group prayers and added, “I was scared to come here with everything going on, because of my personal beliefs.”
However, Lohan told the Daily Mail that she hasn’t converted to Islam.
In the Daily Mail Q&A, Lohan also called for unity under President Donald Trump, saying, “He is the president — we have to join him. If you can’t beat him, join him.” Meanwhile, she expressed her desire for a pro-refugee policy.
The actress even opened a nightclub, called Lohan, in Athens, apparently to thank Greece for opening its doors to refugees. And during her recent trip to Turkey, she spent time with President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan and a 7-year-old Syrian refugee.
Lohan has made appearances in Turkey wearing a headscarf. And her Instagram bio reads “Alaikum salam,” a greeting of peace in Arabic. Back in April 2015, however, Lohan was ridiculed for posting an Arabic meme that read, “You’re a donkey” instead of her intended “You’re beautiful.”
She also has some ambitious ideas: Lohan told the Daily Mail that she wants to meet with Trump and Vladimir Putin, and invite former her “Mean Girls” co-star Rachel McAdams, Angelina Jolie, and Brad Pitt to join them, to help soften Trump’s stance on immigration.
