Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump suggested Lindsay Lohan was "deeply troubled" and therefore "great in bed" in a 2004 radio interview with shock jock Howard Stern which has recently emerged.

In hours of crude and misogynistic footage, published by CNN on Friday (14 October), Trump discussed the then 18-year-old actress with the radio host, known for his outrageous antics.

The pair discuss her looks, her name and her mental health with Stern asking the real estate mogul: "Can you imagine the sex with this troubled teen?"

Trump said: "Yeah, you're probably right.

"She's probably deeply troubled and therefore great in bed. How come the deeply troubled women, you know, deeply, deeply troubled, they're always the best in bed?"

Trump then asks Stern about his thoughts on the Mean Girls star, to which Stern responded: "I think she's hot."

Trump responds: "There's something there right? But you have to like freckles. I've seen a close-up of her chest and a lot of freckles. Are you into freckles?"

Trump's latest remarks have sparked widespread criticism and outrage, including from her Lohan's former co-star Jamie Lee Curtis.

Curtis played Lohan's mother in the 2003 Disney hit Freaky Friday and took to Twitter to condemn Trump's comments.

Later in the interview, Trump said: "I have a friend Howard who's actually like a great Playboy, I mean, I don't say this about men, this guy does very well. He runs silent, runs deep as they say, like a submarine. He will only look for a crazy woman. He says, 'Donald, Donald, please, please, I only want the crazy women'."

Stern responded: "They're desperate."

Trump continued: "But for some reason, what I said is true. It's just unbelievable. You don't want to be with them for long term, but for the short term there's nothing like it."

Lohan's manager told CNN: "Right now, Lindsay is choosing to focus on the positive things happening in her life and has decided to disregard the comments made about her by the presidential nominee Donald Trump. She is focusing on helping children around the world in need and that's where her passion is."

IBTimes UK approached representatives for Lindsay Lohan and Donald Trump for comment, but they had not responded at the time of publication.
