Lohan hit the headlines in November when a magazine claimed she was spotted getting close to Alba's husband, Cash Warren, at a Hollywood hotspot.
The Mean Girls star called the stories "absurd," and now Alba has spoken out in favor of her friend -- insisting she doesn't pay attention to tabloid gossip.
She tells Cosmopolitan magazine, "Lindsay’s had to deal with this for so long. When people wrote lies about me before I had (my daughter) Honor, I’d get upset or I’d get nauseous or I’d get angry or I’d want revenge. Now, it’s like, it’s just so ridiculous and it’s not even close to being the truth."
And Alba admits her husband may have a future with Lohan -- he's considering teaming up with the actress for a new TV project.
She adds, "My husband may do a TV show with Lindsay -- ironically, about the ridiculousness of tabloids."
