Despite social media having many downsides, Lindsay Lohan wishes she had the tool at her disposal in the early days of her career.

The “Parent Trap” actress, 36, told Cosmopolitan there’s “too much” social media nowadays, but admitted it would have allowed her to control the “narrative” on her own terms.

“When I first started out in the business, none of us had a say in how to control our own narrative. There were paparazzi pictures, and then people ran with it,” she told the outlet.

“So I think it’s really good that in this day and age, people can say who they are and who they want to be. And I admire and appreciate that. I’m a little jealous because I didn’t have that.”

The “Mean Girls” star, who was just 12 years old when she was thrust into the spotlight, also touched on the negative aspects of social media, such as bullying and harassment from keyboard warriors and trolls.

“You have to take everything people say with a grain of salt and just be you. And slow down, because everyone’s so quick right now,” she went on. “People just don’t stop. You’ve got to chill.”

“I think it moves really fast, and I just try to keep up as best I can. And I check everything before I post it. I’ll send it to people — because you have to,” she added.

Lohan now resides in the United Arab Emirates with her husband, Bader Shammas.

The actress moved to Dubai with the Kuwait-born financier in 2014 in a bid to start afresh following her scandal-scarred personal life stateside.

The pair tied the knot in July this year after Shammas popped the question last November.
