"It’s strange to me," Lindsay, 37, told Elle of her newfound fame. “My entire career has been behind the camera, and that’s definitely where I’m most comfortable. I’m a producer, I’m a mom, a friend."

But despite being uncomfortable, Lindsay's not going to let the media coverage bring her down. "Someone thinks about you for one minute and then says, 'What do I want for lunch?'" she said.
