Lindsay Lohan is currently confined to her 3,000 square foot, multiple million dollar Venice Beach home instead of an actual prison. In a new interview, Lohan admits she pines for the world outside her luxury pad, even though her alternative living situation would be a cell.

“I'm a very social person, and I like being outside, especially in Venice Beach. I’d like to get out more — just going out and having dinner,” Lohan told Life & Style magazine. “I was really upset not being able to go to my little brother’s birthday party. He just turned 16. That bummed me out.”

The actress — can she still be called that? — began serving court-ordered house arrest in late May for charges related to necklace theft and probation violations. She told the magazine that she fills her time with visits from friends and family and “work-related meetings.”

Lohan failed to mention the time she filmed an 18-second commercial for auction site Or all the time she spends tweeting advertisements for companies like “Sauer Energy” — “I want to do my part to be green! Check out this cool new green energy product!” — and a show about a nail salon

And to all the naysayers out there who don’t think Lohan can ever stop getting in trouble, you’re wrong! “ I do understand that I need to gain some of the respect back, but I’m willing to work hard for that,” she said. “I understand the situations I've put myself in, and I don't want to go back to that.”

But ... she still may go to clubs: “I don't think you should ever say never.”
