Lindsay Lohan was probably so worried about being asked about her run-ins with the law and her wild nights out, that she was caught off-guard by a simple congratulatory comment during her interview on “Good Morning America” on Friday morning. “You allegedly have a new half-sister,” ABC’s Amy Robach told the “Liz & Dick” actress, in reference to 17-year-old Ashley Horn, who determined through a televised paternity test she was conceived during an affair Michael Lohan had while still married to Dina Lohan. Not surprisingly, Lindsay didn’t seem thrilled by the announcement. “I didn’t even hear that, so thanks for the news,” she replied, before trying to change the subject. “I don’t pay attention to any of it. I don’t really want to get into that … I want to stay on the positive side of things.”
It’s hard to believe Lindsay, 26, wasn’t aware of Ashley. She and her mother Kristy Horn have been at odds in the press with Michael for years because he refused to take a paternity test. Perhaps Lindsay got her half-siblings mixed up: Michael is also set to be a father for the sixth time. His on-again girlfriend Kate Major is due very soon with a baby boy. (Michael also has Michael Jr., 27, Aliana, 19, and Cody, 16, with Dina.)

During the chat with “GMA” – which came as a surprise since just a week before Lindsay cancelled her scheduled interview with Barbara Walters for “20/20” – she also spoke about her role as Elizabeth Taylor for the November 25 Lifetime movie, and the parallels the two actresses share. Besides their wild love lives and struggles with substance abuse, "Elizabeth Taylor actually went to her mother a lot," Lindsay explained. "I'm pretty much the same. My mom and my siblings."
As for what’s next, Lindsay hopes more acting jobs will continue to come her way. “I keep calling my agents saying, 'Keep me on set!' Safer that way," she laughed. "I'm in a great place. I just want to move forward. Keep working. I'm in the process of kind of moving and spending time with my family and just being happy."
