Lindsay Lohan asked by David Letterman about rehab: 'It's a blessing' (Video)
Lindsay Lohan is set to appear on "The Late Show with David Letterman" on Tuesday, April 9, and from the just a snippet of the interview released online earlier, it seems Letterman is direct when asking about Lohan's court-ordered rehab sentence.
Letterman asks Lohan in the clip, which can be viewed below, "Aren't you supposed to be in rehab now?"
"Do you not watch anything that goes on," Lohan replies.
In March, the 26-year-old was ordered to complete five days in jail, which will be "absorbed" into a 90-day rehab stint that will take place behind locked doors. The sentence stemmed from charges over a June 2012 car accident in Los Angeles.
She was also given 18 months of psychological counseling and 30 days of community labor, which she will be allowed to complete in New York, where she lives, along with her mother and siblings.
The "Mean Girls" star had pleaded no contest to charges of lying to cops, reckless driving and willfully resisting, obstructing or delaying an officer in the course of their duties.
Lohan told Letterman that she will check into rehab on May 2. When asked how many times she has been to rehab, Lohan replies, "several."
"This is an opportunity for me to, you know, focus on what I love in life. And I don't think it's a bad thing. I think it's a blessing, not a curse," Lohan later says to Letterman, after trying to dodge his questions about her addiction problems.
The actress appears on Letterman to promote "Scary Movie V." Lohan has a cameo in the film with Charlie Sheen. The film hits theaters on April 12. Lohan also has an appearance on Sheen's sitcom "Anger Management" on Thursday, April 11.
