Lohan Hoping To Politicise Her Fans
LINDSAY LOHAN is planning to use her role in political drama BOBBY to encourage her fans to become engaged in national issues. EMILIO ESTEVEZ's movie focuses on the 22 people who were in Los Angeles' Ambassador Hotel when US Presidential hopeful ROBERT KENNEDY - brother of slain US President JOHN F KENNEDY - was assassinated in June 1968. And Lohan - who stars alongside SIR ANTHONY HOPKINS, MARTIN SHEEN and SHARON STONE - hopes her role as a bride, who is marrying her boyfriend's brother so he can dodge the Vietnam War draft, will encourage young people to vote. The 20-year-old says, "For people of my generation, I think it's important to bring awareness of a great leader. I feel I have always been somewhat politically engaged. "I strongly encourage people of my age and generation to have a say and to vote, and to involve themselves in what's going on in the world, because they are living in it. "I've always been like that but I keep it to myself. It's safer that way."
