Lindsay Lohan has confessed to smoking cannabis.

The teenage actress has admitted she has tried marijuana, but claims she didn't enjoy it.

She revealed: "I'm not going to deny the fact that I've tried pot. I hated it."

However, Lindsay is adamant she will never try harder drugs, because she has seen how they have affected her troubled father, Michael, who is currently in jail for assault and drink-driving.

She told Britain's Heat magazine: "I'd never try cocaine. I've seen my father. I've seen how it messes families up. If I hadn't experienced that, I may have gone down a different route. But I've seen how it literally tore my parents apart."

Meanwhile, Lindsay claims her dramatic weight loss is simply due to her hectic work schedule - because her mom would "kill her" if it was down to an eating disorder.

She revealed: "I am not anorexic. Trust me - my mother would kill me if I did anything stupid.

When I was doing 'Herbie: Fully Loaded', I was working a lot and pushing myself. I got sick and ended up in hospital because I wasn't taking care of myself. I was eating, but I was eating junk food and not working out or being healthy."
