Lohan bans boys (and girls) to focus on comeback

Lindsay Lohan has sworn off dating to focus on her career.

The 25-year-old star - who is set to play screen legend Dame Elizabeth Taylor in Lifetime movie Liz and Dick, about the actress' love affair with Richard Burton - is keen to avoid any distraction and so will not be pursuing a relationship for the moment.

A source told TMZ: "Lindsay wants to devote all her spare time to reading the script and getting Liz's persona down pat rather than focus on a new relationship."

Bisexual Lindsay has previously dated DJ Samantha Ronson and was recently linked to photographer Terry Richardson.

Lindsay recently confessed her string of personal problems, legal issues and rehab stints made her feel like she was "falling" apart.

Discussing the end of her probation, she said: "It's a tremendous weight I feel has been lifted off my shoulders and I feel really grateful and just happy and ready to move forward. It's been several years and I did what I had to do, it's taken time to realise that but it's a good day.

"I think growing up and sitting back and seeing I had worked so hard to be something I wanted to be, which is in this industry, and sitting back and seeing I had let it fall apart, so looking at that and saying, 'OK this is not what I signed up for, wake up' [made me focus on what I had to do]"
