Lindsay Lohan says she's 'clean and sober' in 'Today Show' interview
Lindsay Lohan is coming clean in a new interview set to air on "The Today Show" on Thursday.
The 25-year-old troubled actress sat down with the show's co-host, Matt Lauer, and she said she is now "clean and sober."
Lohan also said she is a homebody and is not into going out on the Hollywood scene anymore.
"That's not my thing anymore. I went out, actually, a few months ago with a friend. And I was so uncomfortable," she said. "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."
Lohan's public image is on the mend. The actress received another glowing report about her probation on February 22, after more than four years of legal turmoil. She is also set to host "Saturday Night Live" for a fourth time on March 3.
However, she admits it will take a lot more for people in the industry to trust her commitment to work.
"I think that takes time. 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," Lohan said, "you know, with 'SNL,' being on time, being, you know, keeping my can't say the word but stuff together."
Lohan is also expected to take on the role in another Hollywood legend, Elizabeth Taylor, in a Lifetime movie. A source close to the matter confirmed to OnTheRedCarpet.com that early discussions about the matter have been carried out. No air date has been set for the film and no other actors have been named as potential cast members.
"We're in the middle of casting and figuring-- we start production soon," Lohan told Lauer. "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."
"I could see where it could be scary for people to invest in me. And I don't want people to have that reason to be scared anymore," the actress later said. "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."
Lohan's interview airs on "The Today Show" on NBC on March 1.
