Lindsay Lohan says losing part of her finger in a fishing accident on a boat has given her insight into the tragedies faced by refugees with whom she has been working.
“Losing half of my finger and getting it back was one of the best things that happened to me,” she explained to CNN on a Facebook livestream Thursday from Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.
“If that didn’t happen to me, if I didn’t lose a part of myself essentially — and I weirdly think about this when I meditate — I wouldn’t have stayed in Turkey. I wouldn’t have stayed there, and I wouldn’t have understood what it feels like to lose a limb.” Yikes.
Lohan is focusing on new projects and says that she “fell in love with loving myself.”
