She's never been afraid to speak her mind, but Lindsay Lohan's opinions haven't always been popular with the general public.

She found that out last week, when her comments on the #MeToo movement generated a lot of anger and controversy.

The actress - who has stood up for Donald Trump in recent times - told The Times that some women 'look weak' when they share their stories of abuse or harassment, while others are simply sharing theirs 'for attention', while admitting that she herself had never experienced sexual assault or harassment.

Her views were seen as victim-blaming and were denounced by many - and now she has apologised for them.

She released a statement to People magazine saying: "I would like to unreservedly apologise for any hurt and distress caused by a quote in a recent interview with The Times.

"The quote solely related to my hope that a handful of false testimonies out of a tsunami of heroic voices do not serve to dilute the importance of the #MeToo movement, and all of us who champion it.

"However, I have since learned how statements like mine are seen as hurtful, which was never my intent. I'm sorry for any pain I may have caused.

"I feel very strongly about the #MeToo movement and have the utmost respect and admiration for the women brave enough to come forward and speak out about their experiences. Their testimony has served to protect those who can't speak, and give strength to those who have struggled to have their voices heard."
