Lindsay Lohan is much like Jessica Biel and Lea Michele. Lindsay will NOT be ignored. Lindsay will NOT let anyone else get attention, and if Lindsay Lohan has to crack-snort and crack-steal and crack-lie her way to get attention, she totally will. So… Lindsay gave a new interview. To Extra! Because I guess Entertainment Tonight isn’t taking her calls? Actually, that’s probably not true. I would imagine that any entertainment show would do a Lindsay Lohan interview, but Lindsay probably just went to the show that was most likely to lob softballs at her. Like, “Who would you like to work with?” Ugh.
Did you notice that? Why the runny nose, crackhead? Here are some of the quotes from the interview, plus TMZ’s take on what that surveillance tape “really” shows.
Lindsay Lohan has broken her silence about rehab in her first interview since leaving the treatment facility. The 24-year-old actress was treated in the Betty Ford Centre from September to January after she was ordered back for treatment by a judge after failing a drugs test.
However, Lohan told US TV show Extra’s Jerry Penacoli that she is determined to get her life back on track once and for all.
Asked how she was feeling, Lohan replied: ‘I feel great. I feel happy. There’s always bumps we have in the road and as long as I’m focusing on the one thing I know I need to put first in my life, which is my recovery and stuff, then I’m doing good and that’s important to me.’
Lindsay also appeared to have adopted a pensive outlook on her new lifestyle, and refused to answer when she was asked if there was anyone she is hoping to work with when she gets back into the acting industry.
She replied: ‘I think that’s that something I will be able to say when I’ve taken the steps I need to take to prove that I can be insurable again. I think that will come in time that I will be in the position to say that because I don’t think I am right now. I don’t think it would be fair to say, “Oh, this is who I want to work with”, and expect that to happen. I have to build my way back up and I get that.’
Lohan’s rehab stint was in connection with her 2007 DUI conviction, after she repeatedly failing to meet the terms of her probation. And the actress acknowledges that she has got a long way to go before she is able to reaffirm her status as an established movie star.
She said: ‘I know there’s going to be a lot of steps I’ll have to go through to prove myself again and get the trust from people I respect to work with. But I’m willing to do what I have to do to get there. I miss being on set – I really do miss it.’
Meanwhile, Lohan is currently facing jail time after being charged with felony theft in connection with a $2,500 necklace she is accused of shoplifting from a jewellery store in Venice Beach.
However, gossip website TMZ.com claims to have a source who has seen surveillance video from the shop backing Lohan’s story that she talked to the owner of the store for several minutes before walking out wearing the necklace.
According to the source, on the day in question, Lohan was seen in the video trying on the necklace, looking in the mirror, and appearing to ask both her friend and the store owner for their opinions.
TMZ says Lohan took off her own necklace to try on the shop’s item, and continued to wear it for the next 45 minutes while trying on a variety of rings. It is then claimed that Lohan put her own necklace back on before leaving the store, although her own necklace did not obstruct the view of the store’s necklace, before talking to the owner and then leaving.
The interview with Lindsay airs tonight on Extra.

Doesn’t it feel like Team Crackhead is really trying to make the case that because the store employee didn’t notice that Lindsay had stolen the necklace, that the crack thievery is not her fault? Like, “It’s not my fault, you should have caught me!!!” Dumb crackhead.
Oh, and Lindsay was on Jimmy Kimmel’s post-Oscar special on Sunday night too. She even made a “joke” about her crack thievery. She’s so, so dumb.
