Actress Lindsay Lohan has revealed that her interest in Islam made her feel "scared" about returning to the US.The 30-year-old has returned to New York and opened up about the recent speculation that she would be converting to Islam."I've studied the Quran for quite some time. It's a process to convert to anything. I respect all religions... It's a beautiful religion and I am a very spiritual person. It's something I've been studying," Lohan told dailymail.co.uk.
"Anything's possible; this is more of a personal journey. A lot of different religions and spiritualities appeal to me.You can't just convert overnight to a religion," she added. Explaining her attraction to Islam, she said she found it found a very peaceful feeling with it, and admired how everyone comes together for prayer, pays respect that they're alive."I really admired that, and found solace in it," she said.
However, after US President Donald Trump banned people from predominantly Muslim countries from entering the US, Lohan, who has been spending time in Greece and Turkey, revealed that she was in doubt about returning."I was scared to come here with everything going on because of my personal beliefs," she said. However she fell short of publicly slamming the president and instead called for America to “join him.”She explained: “I think always in the public eye you’re going to be scrutinized. He is the president – we have to join him. If u can’t beat him, join him.”
The Mean Girls star has been spending a lot of time in Turkey, and urged President Trump to visit the country and follow their lead on Syrian refugees. "I think it would be a positive thing for America to show their care and support, and for him to experience what it's like for these people... experience how giving Turkey has been to the refugees and how many they have welcomed in. [Prime Minister Tayyip] Erdogan has a very big heart, and his country stands by him," she said, without touching on the very recent military coup there. 'I think we all need to unite like that. She denied her visit to refugee camps was her seeking attention, and insisted her heart was still in movies.
