Is Lindsay Lohan a cutter?
Photos show what appear to be scars on the actress’ wrists

Has Lindsay Lohan been cutting herself?

Lohan’s fans are alarmed by photos of the “Mean Girls” star that have appeared online and overseas, showing what seems to be scars on her wrists. The headline-making actress has been wearing casts and armbands on her wrists lately, but after the World Music Awards, was photographed with what seems to be both old and new cuts, as well as a burn in the shape of a figure eight.

“The arms are the most common place for self injury,” self-injury expert Jan Sutton, who has written two books on the subject, told the London Sun after being shown pics of Lohan’s wrists. “Some of the scars are fresh and just above those there are a number of injuries which look older. They are called keloid scars and are just beginning to disappear. It would be difficult to argue this is an accident as there are just too many scars.”

Earlier this year, Lohan was quoted in Vanity Fair admitting that she had an eating disorder, saying, “I was sick. Everyone was scared ... I had people sit me down and say, ‘You’re going to die if you don’t take care of yourself.’” She later insisted that the reporter had taken her quotes out of context. Lohan’s rep didn’t respond to the Scoop’s requests for comment.

you know i found a website that had all the celebrities talk about how they used to cut...i was shocked. i mean sometimes we forget that celebrities are just as human as we are and theyre under a lot of pressure, probably even more so then us.

I've seen those websites too. Oddly enough, most of the celebrities listed were already famous, people that I've felt a bit connected to before knowing about their self-injury. Was that your experience, too?
