Lindsay Lohan does first post-rehab interview and sounds remarkably self-aware
Lindsay Lohan has given her first post-rehab interview to Extra. In it, she sounds contrite, self-aware and focused on turning around her career. No, seriously, she does.
During the brief appearance, the first of two parts, the actress talks about her focus on maintaining sobriety and her desire to get back on a movie set. She realizes, however, that the second goal won't be achievable until she can convince filmmakers and casting directors that she's insurable again.
"I think that will come in time, where I'll be in the position to say that," she said, "because I don't think I am right now."
"I don't want that to be what I'm known for anymore, the tabloid stuff," she later added. "I don't want that."
Honestly, despite the fact that she's facing potential jail time in that grand larceny case, this could not be a smarter time for Lohan to speak to the media. Compared to Charlie Sheen, almost anything she says seems more in touch with reality. Even with that caveat, though, she comes across here as someone who is genuinely attempting to take the steps to get better. Do you agree?
