Hollywood actor and former child star Lindsay Lohan has said she is hoping a successful stint in London's West End could help her in her ambition to win an Oscar.

The 28-year-old American, who made her name in 2004's Mean Girls, is concentrating on her acting career again after stints in jail and rehab.

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.

She said: "I know, so long as I do what I have to do, I trust myself. I'm sure that will show through."
