'She's a worldly person!': Lindsay Lohan's mother explains star's new bizarre accent is the result of learning many languages at once
Lindsay Lohan spoke in an odd new accent when being interviewed in Greece last month. The video clip caused a frenzy when it was shared on Tuesday.
Lindsay herself told DailyMail.com that her new sound is just the result of learning so many languages at once, and her mother backed that up on Thursday when she talked to Entertainment Tonight.
'She is a worldly person, that is what makes her so special and so beautiful,' said Dina. 'She taught herself to speak French, Arabic, Hebrew and the list goes on. She has a very high IQ and is very intelligent and can pick up any language in a minute. She has that gift.'

Her father Michael also spoke about the new sound.
'Lindsay picks up languages like I pick up a coffee,' he said.
'I will tell you this. She has spoken other languages to me on the phone. Languages I don't understand. I'll be on the phone with her and I'll hear her say something in fluent Farsi to a friend she's with.'

Sound evolution: As to why she does not sound like the Lindsay we have known since childhood, the Mean Girls star joked, 'Je ne sais pas.' The star is seen here at the opening of her Greek club last month - where her new accent was caught on tape
'I've been learning different languages since I was a child. I'm fluent in English and French can understand Russian and am learning Turkish, Italian and Arabic.'
After video of Lindsay speaking outside her Greek club opening last month emerged on Tuesday, the internet has been wild with speculation over just what Lindsay's new sound was.
While some fans claimed it was a mix of everything from Australian with Turkish to Greek with Saudi Arabian, Lindsay joked on Twitter with the DailyMail.com that her accent should have its own name.

In the video, the actress told local reporters of her hopes for her club and also sought to clarify her relationship with business partner Dennis Papageorgi.
But, as she did, her well known American accent and husky tone was very different.
The star told reporters of why she opened the club: 'I said maybe there is something for me to do more here so I have a reason to come back.
'My first time coming to Athens with Dennis, my friend, and that's all he is my friend and business partner! But his mother became a very close person to me and his sister as well... When I went through hardships with my ex I really found ''good family'' in these people from Greece.'
Lindsay went on to discuss her work with refugees after visiting Turkey last year.
She said: 'Just as I did in Turkey with refugees. So where people are scared of refugees and everything in the world, there's a minimum, there's a line of where we can make happiness and shine a light in every situation that is bad and make it good.
'Whereas in the past I've been associated with nightclubs and clubbing I said why not do my own and make it a good place. Where there's bad things happening in the world we can focus on the bad things and fix them with the club we can create charity with the club.'
