Lindsay Lohan may have had a rocky first night in her West End debut in 'Speed-the-Plow,' but she isn't letting the critics get to her -- in fact, she doesn't even read the negative reviews.

"Everyone is always going to be judgmental, no matter what," the actress revealed to the Mirror. “I respect people have an opinion, but I’m doing the best I can and will for the duration. I’m doing this because working makes me feel happy and this is a new venture for me."

Still, all eyes were on Lohan during opening night of the David Mamet play -- and it definitely seemed that she floundered a bit, reportedly forgetting her lines (the crew read them to her off stage) and unintentionally making the audience laugh.

But Lohan is still proud of her performance that first night.

“It could’ve been a disaster -- but it wasn’t by far," she explained. “I could’ve not shown up. But of course I did, it’s my show.” Of course, we have to say: Showing up should be the bare minimum.

“I was nervous on the first night because I’d never done it before," Lohan, 28, continued. "But everyone has been really great. … Every night feels more natural and comfortable. I’m not used to a live audience, it’s a much quicker buzz. When you do a movie you have to wait until the premiere to get that feeling.”

We've said it once, and we'll say it again: We're rooting for you, Lindsay!
