Scott Brown: Lindsay Lohan 'Can Do Better And Be Better'

Sen. Scott Brown (R-Mass.) offered some advice to troubled starlet Lindsay Lohan Tuesday, saying that the actress should seek "guidance from some people that care about her."

Speaking with "America's Morning News" on the Talk Radio Network, Brown said he "think[s] about" Lohan "a lot," and that he would like a chance to tell her "you can do better and be better."

Brown, father of two daughters around Lohan's age, also recalled Lohan's career in the 1998 film "The Parent Trap" and seemed to be disturbed by the rugged path she had taken since then -- one that most recently landed her in a court room for allegedly stealing a $2,500 necklace.

"All of the things you read about her, you feel badly," Brown said. "I would hope that she would start to get some real guidance from some people that care about her and [are] not looking for headlines or purse strings attached."

In Brown's book, "Against All Odds," the senator describes his experience with shoplifting during his teen years, a tumultuous period that was marked with sexual and physical abuse.
