I was overpaid as a child star: Lindsay Lohan

London: Troubled actress Lindsay Lohan is convinced that she was "making too much" money as a child star.

The 27-year-old actress admitted to Oprah Winfrey that her problems began after she found fame as a child, reported Contactmusic.

"When I moved to LA after filming Mean Girls, I was 17 or 18. I was around people so I wasn`t lonely, and I didn`t pay close enough attention to people being around for the wrong reasons. I was making too much.

"I wasted so much money; I was living at a hotel, and I had an apartment. I wasn`t really being guided. I didn`t think about it, and I didn`t listen to my family when they told me, `Come back to New York,`" she said.

When Winfrey asked her how it feels to be held up as an example of a "child star gone wrong," Lohan said, "I hate that label and that title. That`s not what I ever aspired to be."
