"Liz Taylor's life was out of control at times. And to be honest, so has yours. From the moment you step out of your house there's oftentimes drama," she told the actress. "Do you think that your life and career may have been different - would have been different - without the constant scrutiny?"

"Um, obviously yes, to a certain extent. But I think that everyone goes through things in life. I like to learn from my mistakes. But I wouldn't be who I am today if I hadn't gone through certain things. And everything happens for a reason, good or bad," the actress said. "So you can just, you know, take what you've learned from it and move forward."

When asked who she seeks support from, Lindsay said her family is her go to group.

Lindsay simply wants to focus on work.

"I keep calling my agents saying, 'Keep me on set!' Safer that way," she said. "I'm in a great place. I just want to move forward. Keep working. I'm in the process of kind of moving and spending time with my family and just being happy."
