The former Beverly Hills, 90210 bad girl just released a book (entitled Badass: A Hard-Earned Guide to Living Life with Style and (the Right) Attitude) and she's dishing about it to Parade.

But Shannen Doherty also talks about the new Young Hollywood, and of course that includes her opinion on troubled starlet Lindsay Lohan:

    "It's such a horrific situation that I don't even know what to say. I just have kind of tried to tune it out. I totally understand that it's newsworthy, but it just seems so tragic to me. I mean, Lindsay's dad giving a press conference at the end was just like, 'Oh, my God.' I've been acting for 29 years. My parents have never given a press conference, ever. It all seems so exploitative."

And who does Shannen think is a great role model for women? None other than Angelina Jolie! Read below to find out why:

    "When she was in her 20's, she had the vial of blood and the knives and everything. You were like, 'Okay, she's brilliant, she's talented, she's stunning, but what about the weird stuff?' Now, you see the progression that she's made as a mature woman. Angelina is an inspiration."

To agree or disagree, that is the question.
