Dec. 8, 2006 — -- It's not only a bad spell for Lindsay Lohan, it's bad spelling.

The club-hopping 20-year-old actress said in an e-mail to friends that she is preparing to clean up her image and take on the media with the help of a friend -- former Vice President Al Gore.

"Al Gore will help me. He came up to me last night and said he would be very happy to have a conversation with me," Lohan wrote in a rambling letter riddled with misspellings that she sent to friends and associates. Portions of the e-mail were published in the New York Post.

"If he [Gore] is willing to help me, let's find out. Hilary [sic] Clinton, Bill Clinton, and Evan Metroplis [sic], and John Daur who works with them would be willing, if we just ask. If we just ASK."

Lohan told friends of a desire to "release a politically/morally correct, fully adequite [sic] letter to the press" and spoke of "how our society should be educated for the better of our country."

The "Freaky Friday" star said she has a lot to offer, "because I have such an impact on our younger generations, as well as generations older than me. Which we all know and can obviously see."

And in response to rumors that she's suffered a drug overdose, Lohan said, "Let's sue the tabloids for saying the things they say. Defamation of character."

Lohan's spokeswoman, Leslie Sloane Zelnik, told ABCNEWS.com that she had "no comment."

A spokeswoman for Gore told ABCNEWS.com that the former vice president barely knows Lohan. "They met recently at the GQ Men of the Year dinner. It was a very short exchange, and that was it," she said.

Lohan's e-mail came just weeks after she released an odd statement in response to the death of director Robert Altman, whom she worked with in "A Prairie Home Companion."

It's "as if I've just had the wind knocked out of me and my heart aches," Lohan wrote, describing the 81-year-old director as the "closest thing to my father and grandfather that I really do believe I've had in several years."

The statement concluded with, "Thank You, BE ADEQUITE, Lindsay Lohan."
