Lindsay Lohan's Oprah Interview
Admits she's an addict, but ready to change.
Lindsay Lohan’s first post-rehab interview with Oprah Winfrey has aired – and (insert shocked face) she’s admitted she’s an addict!
The former childstar admitted alcohol was her drug of choice.
“That in the past was a gateway to other things for me,” said Lohan, who confessed she’s done cocaine 10 to 15 times – explaining it was mostly done at parties.
She also admitted her addiction to prescription drug Adderall and said she believes her unstable childhood was the source of her demons.
“A lot of stuff went on when I was young with my family and I grew up in a very chaotic home…” she told Oprah. “Unfortunately, I waited too long to face it.”
Linds said she became so addicted to the chaos that it became normal – leading to many legal problems and a massive six trips to rehab.
Her admission she “didn’t take rehab seriously”
Speaking to Oprah just says after her release she admitted her resentment about being in rehab got in the way of her rehabilitation.
“It’s the definition of insanity, doing the same thing over and over again,” she acknowledged, speaking about her repeated drink-driving convictions.
She even admitted that in 2010 when she was finally jailed she wanted to go to prison – “just to find some peace and have no choice but to just sit and be.”
Lindsay is her “own worst enemy”
Reflecting on being tabloid fodder for years, Lohan said she “hates” being the symbol for “child star gone wrong,” adding “It’s not what I ever aspired to be and it’s not what I want for my life.”
But career success was also partially responsible for Lohan’s problems, with the actress admitting she got paid way “too much” at too young of an age, and ended up “wasting” loads of money.
Lohan, who said she’s her “own worst enemy,” told Oprah she believes “there’s nothing that can stand in my way” if she takes what she’s learned the past few months and lives “in the moment.”
“I have to regain the trust of people and my career… and I fully respect that,” she said.
Ready to move on
Lindsay says she now has an “appreciation” for what she has in her life, and is “tired” of living the way she has for so many years.
She told the former talk show host, “I’ve lived so many lives in one lifetime as this point, and it’s not interesting me to anymore.”
The Mean Girls star went on to say she has “some serious guardian angels” for not injuring herself or anyone else during her wildest of times.
Rattling off a list of well-known misdoings, Lohan said, “I did that and I’m not proud of it, and all I can do is keep doing what I’m doing now.”
A docu-series about Lohan rebuilding her career and staying sober will air on Oprah’s Channel next year.
