LOS ANGELES (AP) – Lindsay Lohan wishes paparazzi would keep their distance, especially after police said a photographer intentionally crashed into her car.

“It’s a frightening experience. There’s a line that needs to be drawn now,” the actress-singer told reporters recently, according to AP Radio.

Lohan suffered cuts and bruises in the accident last week in Los Angeles. Police said the photographer intentionally rammed the left rear of Lohan’s 2005 Mercedes-Benz.

“I was so shaken up, but I was still nice ‘cause I was like, “I understand it’s your job. But you don’t have to ram into me next time. I’ll give you a picture.”‘

It’s been a difficult year, Lohan said.

She broke up with “That ‘70s Show” actor Wilmer Valderrama, was hospitalized for exhaustion and has lost weight. Her father has had various run-ins with the law.

“I’m an 18-year-old girl and I’ve dealt with so many things in this past year,” she said.

Lohan said she can’t figure out why tabloid magazines are so interested in her personal life.

“There’s not much I can do at this point anymore. I feel like the more I kind of defend myself, then the more they say. I’m just such an easy target, I guess. I don’t know why I’m so interesting.”

“Hopefully, people will get sick of it and ban buying the magazines in protest against it for a month,” she said. Lohan added, with a laugh: “But I can’t say that I don’t read it.”

Her role in last year’s “Mean Girls” earned her the award for best female performance at the 2005 MTV Movie Awards, taped Saturday night in Los Angeles.

Lohan’s new film, “Herbie: Fully Loaded,” will be in theaters June 22.

Time for 16 more candles?

LOS ANGELES (AP) – Could it be time to put more candles on the cake?

Molly Ringwald said she’s in discussions to make a sequel to “Sixteen Candles,” the 1984 movie about the obstacles and embarrassments a teen girl faces on her birthday.

The film, directed by John Hughes, shot Ringwald to teen stardom, but she hasn’t appeared in a major role in many years. She said she’s been appearing in theater, small TV and film parts and raising a daughter, now 18 months old.

Ringwald, 37, said she had been approached repeatedly about doing a sequel, but recently read a script that she liked and wanted to star in the movie.

“I’ve turned it down for years. I couldn’t see how it would work,” she said. “Now, it seems right.”

Ringwald was reunited at the MTV Movie Awards on Saturday with Anthony Michael Hall, Ally Sheedy and Paul Gleason, three of her co-stars in 1985’s “The Breakfast Club,” directed by John Hughes.

Judd Nelson and Emilio Estevez didn’t show.

“They’re in Africa with Dave Chappelle,” Hall joked.
