Lindsay Lohan Will ‘Not Let Anyone Down’

Lindsay Lohan sat down for an exclusive interview with Matt Lauer and did the same song and dance she’s done in every interview before. She promises she’s “clean and sober” and wants “to continue to move forward in the right direction.” Let’s listen to her excuses and how she’s changed for the 20th time.

On if Lindsay was in denial the last time they spoke: “Definitely,” Lohan said. “And I think it was — it’s a scary thing to have to kind of express to people … I wasn’t as comfortable with myself then. I think it was a fear factor that I had about what was really going on. And, you know, I had to get that wakeup call.”

On if she still likes to party: “That’s not my thing anymore. I went out, actually, a few months ago with a friend. And I was so uncomfortable. Not because I felt tempted, just because it was just the same thing that it always was before. And it just wasn’t fun for me. I’ve become more of a homebody. And I like that.” (That’s a lie)

On whether or not anyone in the industry will back her anymore: “I think that that’s gonna take — I think that takes time,” Lohan said. “And I think that it’s actions. Because people can say things all they want, but I think I still need to go through the process of proving myself, you know, with ‘SNL,’ being on time, being, you know, keeping my — can’t say the word — but stuff together.”

On her first real acting job in years: “We’re in the middle of casting and figuring — we start production soon,” Lohan said. “I’ve been doing tons of research. But I’ve always kind of researched her. She’s always been a fascinating woman to me. So I’m really honored. And I will not let anyone down, especially myself.”

On why people shouldn’t be afraid to invest in her: “I don’t want people to have that reason to be scared anymore. So being able to have this opportunity with ‘SNL’ and the film, I’m gonna do what I’m supposed to do, and enjoy doing it, and do it as best as I can.”

I think the real wake-up call for Lindsay was when clubs started sending her to the back of the line and gifting suites had a picture of her up on the wall with the word “Blacklisted” underneath. That was her and Dina’s real “oh sh*t” moment. More so than the probation and house arrest.
