LOS ANGELES, Sept. 11 (UPI) -- U.S. actress Lindsay Lohan says her early desire for fame has led to her being a target for the media.

Lohan, 23, has starred in the popular movies "The Parent Trap," "Freaky Friday" and "Mean Girls," but her once-bright career has been eclipsed in recent years by her relationship dramas and trips to rehab.

"I think I've always kind of aspired to be like Britney Spears in the tabloids when I was in middle school. It's kind of something you sign up for in the beginning and if you really want it, you know that comes with it," Lohan told TV's "Access Hollywood" in an interview airing Friday.

"There are times when it does affect me. When I'm having a bad day or dealing with something personal that is no one else's business but they're going to spin it anyway. If I make the wrong face and I'm having a really great day, they're going to say something negative anyway. I know that I'm a target and I know that I've given people a lot of reason to kind of run with things that have been said."

Lohan said she doesn't intend to do that any more, but adds "I'm not perfect."
