Lohan is currently in the UK ahead of a two-month run of David Mamet's Speed-the-Plow. She will be making her stage debut later this month when she plays the part of Karen, a role originally played by Madonna.
Speaking to The Sunday Times' Culture magazine, she said she hoped to win an Oscar in five years' time, and another within five years of the first.
