Lindsay Lohan has played down speculation she's bisexual in a candid new interview but insists she's still in love with ex-girlfriend Samantha Ronson.

The actress romanced the Dj for 18 months, but she tells newsman Piers Morgan she's straight and likes boys.

In the interview for The Daily Mail, which was conducted weeks before she entered court-ordered rehab on Friday (03May13), the Mean Girls star clears up her sexual preferences, stating, "I like being in a relationship with a guy."

But she adds, "There's something just different about it with a woman. When I was with Samantha, I didn't want to leave, because I didn't want to be alone... I still love her as a person.

"(But) I know I'm straight. I have made out with girls before, and I had a relationship with a girl. But I think I needed to experience that and I think I was looking for something different."

Asked why her relationship with Ronson ended, Lohan tells Morgan, "It was very toxic. And her family controlled anything she did."
