Lindsay Lohan “is absolutely clear-headed and looks great,” sources say

I’m still thinking about Lindsay Lohan’s Today interview, which we talked about yesterday. My initial reactions were rage and disgust, and as the hours passed… I think I’m just feeling that LL is simply pathetic. I’m not sympathetic towards her at all, but in the scope of even trying to fact-check her crack-lie-extravaganza, I’ll simply throw up my hands. She’s just pathetic. But in her crack-mind, she’s awesome. She thinks she’s convincing us of her amazing comeback. She thinks we still believe she’s super-talented and that she just needs to be given the chance (!!!) to win an Oscar. Is that “sad”? Or are you just thinking, “Meh. Same old crackie”?

What was equally disturbing about the Today interview was her obviously drugged-out, busted appearance, and how Matt Lauer did not call her out on any of the obvious subjects. Like, “Why do you look like that? What happened to your face? Does your voice sound like that because you were up all night guzzling vodka and chain-smoking?” Instead, Lauer made a point to say that LL looked “great”. Haha. Meanwhile, even legit media outlets are talking about how awful the Cracken looks - Us Weekly ran a story a few days ago with the headline – no joke – “What Really Happened To Lindsay Lohan’s Face?” Their answer: “Since she doesn’t appear to have gained weight, it’s likely that her fuller features are the result of facial fillers like Restylane or Juvederm. And that’s not the only dramatic change she’s sporting right now. Lohan recently added heavy, blunt bangs to her and extra-long extensions to her platinum hair.” Yes, fillers and a bad wig. That’s all, right? Oh, and in this week’s In Touch Weekly, a plastic surgeon claims that LL has had a “shield graft” on her nose – you should just look at the before-and-after images of LL’s nose.

So who is going to watch LL on tomorrow’s Saturday Night Live? Will the ratings be any good? Will the writing be any good? Will LL be self-aware and make lots of jokes at her expense? How puffy will her face be? What’s especially hilarious is that LL’s rep, Steve Honig, has been working extra hard to provide lots of quotes to media outlets about how everybody at SNL loves the Cracken. He went on the record with Radar, saying: “Lindsay has been a longtime fan of Saturday Night Live and is incredibly excited to host the show and work with the amazing cast and writers.” After that, an “insider” took over, and note how the wording still sounds like Honig: “Lindsay had been a little nervous about how the cast and crew would treat her. Lindsay arrived early for rehearsals on Tuesday, and was embraced warmly by everyone. Lindsay’s comedic timing is absolutely flawless. She is absolutely clear headed, and looks great.” OMG. Why does everyone keep saying she looks great?!?!

UPDATE: The Cracken was on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon last night. I don’t… uh.

    That is the exact same nose. lol Those pictures are two completely different angles. She still looks a damn mess, though.

  2. brin says:

    Why does she get all these 2nd,3rd, 54th chances when she keeps screwing up? She hasn’t worked in years.

    • Happy21 says:

      Totally!!! Why is she doing the talk show circuit and why the hell is she hosting SNL? I think its because people will tune in to laugh AT her, that’s all but still. Why Today? Why Jimmy Kimmell?

      She has not worked in forever and the Liz Taylor Lifetime film will probably not even happen.

      I’m just appalled!! Do people sincerely give a crap about her or do they just enjoy looking and laughing and gawking like she is some sideshow freak?

      I don’t freakin’ get it!! **shakes head**

      • the original bellaluna says:

        Today & Jimmy Kimmel because they’re on the same network (NBC) as SNL; Today to promote SNL; Jimmy Kimmel because he used to be and was once on SNL with Blohan, and to promote SNL.

        It’s a nepotistic, nepotistic, nepotistic world. (With apologies to Mel Brooks.)

  3. emma says:

    She may have had nose surgery but give her a break… If you snorted that much coke, you’d need nose jobs too!!!

    P.s. I actually do like Lindsay… Dye your hair red and fix your face and you’ll instantly appear more credible!!

    • keri says:

      I’ve always thought that too. Her first thing to fix, back to red hair. That’s public image control, and second, get rid of that odd double chin. Is that just because her face is so bloated she has that or what? she’s still skinny. I dunno.

      • Sloane Wyatt says:

        Lindsay will be perfect as middle aged, bloated, pill popping, alcoholic Elizabeth Taylor! I mean, how many actors and actresses, how many big names RIGHT NOW, are using addicts? How many of them have been arrested, but are working and have talent? A bunch, that’s how many! Do I have to name them? I didn’t think so.

        The above large group, some we know a lot about their substance addiction lifestyle and some we don’t know their secrets behind their closed PR doors, still get work because they SELL. It’s about money in Hollywood, and it’s about money everywhere in this world. Dirty Deeds done dirt cheap, that’s for sure.

        Besides, addicts are infamous for their charm and manipulation. You cannot be a wallflower or a try hard and make it in TV or movies, unless of course you come from a wealthy nepotistic actor dynasty; then you just show up for your screen test because you have your cache and connections all built in.

        I’m rooting for this little drug addict, and I hope she has a great comeback like Drew Barrymore, who rumor has it still tokes and drinks on the not so down low. I hope Lindsay can keep working, can keep her demons in check, and can maintain enough not to die. Lot’s of ‘em do it. She can too.

        You know, I should be hoping Linds gets clean for reals, but I’m a realist.

  4. Sadie says:

    Insider!?? Rhymes with Lina Blohan

  5. Asli says:

    So THAT’S what was with the nose. Aaah. And I would like to know which kind of women Matt Lauer’s seen lately to think that Lindsay looks great. He must have been some scary places, like the Underworld. If I was sitting next to her I’d ask if her nose was about to pop off or something. Not the management approved sh-t he was throwing at her.

  6. Sisi says:

    She does’t want a chance to win an Oscar, she just wants an Oscar

  7. I.want.shoes says:

    Does she have any natural hair left?! Because it looks like it’s all synthetic wig…

  8. Momo says:

    Well I think she looks rough because of the years of drug use and drinking- and the bad plastic surgery. She really might not be on anything now. Most people would look like Hell after all that.

    • Ruby Red Lips says:

      I agree she has destroyed her looks with drugs, alcohol and bad surgery, and she may very well at this time be having a week off smack/crack but it won’t last it never does, its only a matter of time

      Hardcore druggies dont get clean just like that & the fact she was so blatant in her lying in the MS interview proves that she hasn’t really changed, its all just an act…AGAIN!! :(

  9. Momo says:

    Years of malnutrition would also do it.

  10. NinaG says:

    I think a few months isn’t enough time to say someone has go it together, If a year passes and she is still “clear headed” than I will give her her props. Addiction is a hard thing to beat. GOOD LUCK to LL I don’t want to see her end up in a casket.

  11. Tapioca says:

    “She is absolutely clear headed, and looks great”

    Bwuahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha!!!

    *deep breaths*

    Bwuahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha!!!

    Thanks, Saturday Night Live, for the biggest laugh you’ve ever given me…

  12. teri says:

    I did like her red hair so much better, just set her aside from the crowd. Not many true redheads today. I think she went blond when that Brandon blow hard drug head started calling her fire crotch and then others started to say it. Why would anyone change for him or care what he thought.

  13. NeNe says:

    Personally, I do not think that Saturday Night Live has too much credibility. Give it a few weeks, and she will go back to her old ways. Mark my words. Once a junkie, always a junkie!!!

    I definitely will not watch her on SNL.

    • rlh says:

      Do you know any “junkies”?? You are right, once an addict always an addict, but some, after many, many attempts and relapses do manage to stay clean. I am not myself an addict but I have friends who are and it can take years to get clean and stay clean. But the ones who keep trying, like Ms. Lohan, eventually succeed. I hope Lindsay does too.

    • MJ says:

      “Once a junkie, always a junkie!”

      That’s a pretty fatalistic view. I can’t speak for LL, but why would anyone even try to get sober with people saying stuff like that? What would be the point?

      • boo says:

        I doesn’t matter what people say, when you are ready to get clean and sober you do it. I did, but you don’t actually know you are ready, because I said I was ready many times but when I got “sick and tired of being sick and tired” I got sober. You have to reach a bottom and no one knows what that bottom is. I don’t especially like LL, she seems to me to be extremely entitled, has money and gotten the best treatment and still cannot get sober. I got sober in my robe in my crappy one bedroom apartment and shook and sweated and hurt until all that crap was out of me, maybe that’s the difference, I was not coddled into sobriety and I still remember after 31 years how that felt and how awful that was and that in itself keeps me sober.

  14. erika says:

    she seems genuinely happy in this interview. jimmy was so great to her! and enthusiastic!
    god bless lilo and jimmy

  15. Miss Kitty says:

    I saw the interview with Matt Lauer yesterday and totally don’t believe she’s sober. She couldn’t even tell how long she’s been sober. She answered “a while” then later, “a long time”. I’m a recovering alcoholic and have been sober 15 months and 4 days. Recovering addicts all know the exact amount of sobriety they have practically down to the minute. Also, her voice is wrecked! She’s definitely hitting the pipe. Not to mention she looks awful and much older than 25.

  16. imabrat says:

    I agree, she’s just plain pathetic. I don’t think she was EVER a good actress to begin with (her acting is very distracting to me, the way she constantly looks to other cast members for what seems to be affirmation). Far better actresses than her have been passed over for an Oscar.
    She just seems extremely unlikeable, untalented and now puffy.

    • Az says:

      Omigod that is exactly what I thought! Every recovering addict knows exactly how long he or she has been sober. It reminded me of Courtney Love at the Pamela Anderson roast, “Clean and sober for over a year!” Except she so wasn’t. Congratulations to you on staying sober!

  17. Cathy says:

    I’m guessing that those sources who say she is clear headed and looking great must be the National Enquirer, and The Globe. We all know what reputable magazines they are

  18. dorothy says:

    All of this is just part of a very public crash and burn.

  19. Dana says:

    Blah blah back on track, blah blah Oscar, blah blah ready to work, blah blah not partying, blah blah on set. It is the same story, every. single. time.

  20. neelyo says:

    I hope no one watches the show. I don’t want to see her make fun of the fact that she’s been breaking the law and behaving like a sociopath for almost a decade. She doesn’t deserve a comeback.

  21. Boo says:

    The voice is really, really startling. I know she has always had a kind of naturally raspy sort of voice, but now it is painful to even hear her speak. I wonder if it hurts her to talk? Beyond that, she always seems vaguely confused by even simple questions; she stops and starts a lot, as if searching her mind for the script, and she comes off as completely ingenuine. The nervous “I’m laughing at myself, see?” kind of thing she is trying to do just comes off as shrill.

    To sum up, I hope she fails miserably because I don’t like her, and I think it’s sickening that she is getting so much attention for being a criminal famewhore. I teach at a university where the theatre program is very strong; I see many of my students succeeding in my challenging (non-theatre) classes even while working to perfect difficult accents and manage complex roles for the university stage. ALL of them could act rings around her, but they languish away with their genuine talent and great work ethic while she seems to just suck up the sun and cash the checks. Infuriating.

  22. rlh says:

    I like her. I have always liked her. Whatever her mistakes and missteps, she keeps trying to get better. It cannot have been easy for her with those two “parents” and getting fame so young. So she has flaws, so what? She wants to work and I think she is a talented actor with really good timing. Geez..she’s still in her twenty’s for Christ’s sake. I think she will get it together and be awesome. I am rooting for her!

    • Lady D says:

      “she keeps trying to get better.”
      No, she doesn’t. She sees absolutely no problem with her life and has more than demonstrated that fact, she lives it.
      She might have hid in rehab to avoid jail, but she was never serious about it. Ever. Name 1 time she left rehab and didn’t get hammered. Wasn’t it mommy that met her out of jail or rehab with a bottle in the limo?
      She knows she is not going to spend any time (obviously) in jail. She has no repercussion for her entitled and violent behavior therefore she will not change it.

  23. Rhiley says:

    “Meh. Same old crackie”

    – I think I am going to have to list this as one my favorite quotes on ma Facebook page.

  24. hillbillygirl45 says:

    Clear-headed, looks great?! Whoever said that is completely deaf and at least has cataracts. Or, they came from the Blohan camp. Maybe both. Everyone who has worked hard for their sobriety, I praise them all. But this no account wench deserves nothing. IMO she hasn’t even tried to get completely sober. She wants all the glory without doing any of the work. I wouldn’t watch her even if she was in my backyard. CRACK-HO

  25. notafan says:

    check out todays photos of LL ,little miss thang/ clean and sober (as if) in the daily mail. WTF x a billion ! nothing like begging for another job ,(unintentional pun) ,playboy and snl. dr drew and gang mentioned their thoughts on LL last night,not good. and matt lauer geez where are the effin follow up questions?? CHECK OUT DAILY MAIL you will also believe she is not right in the head .

  26. Beatrix says:

    Why is Jimmy Fallon acting like an obsequious twat?

  27. Sapphire says:

    Hate to say this but Lainey made a good point-even if she was clean and sober, WHY would anyone cast her with a ruined face when there are so many other lovely, talented women of the same age?

  28. Maria says:

    she’s so lucky to naturally have such a pretty, color hair…why the heck would she color it this trashy way ?…she looks horrible and she’s so young..it just doesn’t make sense why she would mess with her natural looks to make herself look like a middle aged hooker. I guess we can blame youth on that. She’s going to look back one day and shudder.

  29. Jackson says:

    I had no idea Jimmy Fallon was such a suck-up. Good luck with that Emmy, LL.

  30. Shelly says:

    I kind of liked her sit-down with Jimmy. She came across ok. Still hate the hair, but she looked a little better.

  31. Jen says:

    Her whole shtick of making fun of how hounded she is by the press is tiresome. Like the SNL promos . . . she jokes about everyone watching her every move. Please – she LOVES everyone watching her every move. And that’s all she’s got at this point. Yuck.

  32. LeeLoo says:

    I’m believing she dried herself out for a week. Maybe she dried herself out after spring NY Fashion week. Either way, I will say she is clean right now but it will be all crack parties all the time when she gets back to LA and the Chateau Marmont.

  33. sm255 says:

    Hey, at least she’s actually smiling and having fun. And she does kind of look better than she had a few months ago.

    Here’s to optimism! :D

    And FYI: Everybody deserves a second chance. Yes, even for people who break the law. Might call me a softie at heart but meh. It’s called humanity, for Christ’s sake. Get some.

    • The Truth Fairy says:

      Second chance?! Seriously, have you not seen her collection of mugshots?! Her second chance passed a loooooooong time ago.

      Here is a rundown of all the illegal things she’s done and the harm she’s done to people: http://gossip.about.com/od/celebritydui/a/Lindsay_Lohan_Criminal_Arrest_Record.htm

      Humanity works both ways. She needs to show humanity to others before she can expect it in return.

      • sm255 says:

        And how do we know how she actually feels about what’s happened and what she’s done in the past? No one but her and whoever she praises as a higher power.

        So until she says something about it, I can’t really judge her character based on what we hear from secondary (and shady) sources (people who are ‘in the know’ or are ‘close to her.’)

        And, believe it or not, humans do make mistakes *gasp!*. It is human, after all. Hence ‘humanity.’

      • The Truth Fairy says:

        How does she feel about what she’s done in the past? Obviously NOT MUCH because she keeps REPEATING it.

        Also, court documents and police reports are NOT secondary shady sources LMAO.

        And there is a HUGE difference between making mistakes versus having a complete disregard for others on a constant and continual basis.

        You are either in denial, or Dina. Either way, open your eyes.

    • sm255 says:

      Hey, I physically fought against my 75 year old father in the heat of an argument. Does that mean that I don’t regret my mistakes based on my actions?

      And no, how about YOU stop being in denial and stop drinking the Negativity Potion and maybe think that she’s probably realized that she’s gone rock bottom. Any person with an addiction would seem stupid to others on the outside, but we’ll never actually know what she meant on the inside until she says something. We’re not mind readers, for Christ’s sake. Let her actions speak for herself.

      So you can take your Dina accusation and shove it right up where the sun will never shine, toots because my mind is right and clear.

      • The Truth Fairy says:

        “Hey, I physically fought against my 75 year old father in the heat of an argument. Does that mean that I don’t regret my mistakes based on my actions?”

        Well, that depends toots …. did you do it once and move on or did you repeat it over and over again for many years? Did you get arrested for it and then while out on probation go steal some stuff? Or steal someone’s car and go on a reckless chase? Seriously, if Lindsay regretted her actions, she wouldn’t continually repeat them, especially after all of the chances she’s been given to turn her life around.

        As you mention, “heat of the moment” is very different than being continually in trouble with the law over a six year period.

        Also, there is a BIG difference between negativity and reality. Open your eyes and stop making excuses for someone who won’t take responsibility for their actions. Many people die of an overdose or reckless behavior because they NEVER realized they hit rock bottom.

      • sm255 says:

        She ain’t dead yet, right?

        Goodness, I’m only being optimistic in the fact that she probably did hit rock bottom and realized that her body would give out on her at at any moment. Apart from everyone here, I don’t want her to die. I just hope that this is the time that she gets her act together and fly right. Crimes aside, I’m a forgiving person. She’s on the road Dana Plato used to be on – and we ALL know how that turned out in the very sad end.

        True she may be an a**hole, but so am I and probably so are you (at some point). I’ve probably hurt someone before (directly or indirectly), but could I give a shit about something in the past?

        And to note, no I was not arrested for what I had done and yes it happened once.

        And since you tell me to ‘open my eyes’, you can stop shutting yours.

  34. Sumodo1 says:

    Lindsay “croaking” like she gargled razor blades, while trying to play Eliabeth Taylor, who had a such a lovely speaking voice? (*shudder*)

  35. nikzilla37 says:

    Anyone who has ever drank a lot or did drugs knows that Gatorade is your best friend the next morning.

  36. novaraen says:

    How can anyone employ this drugged out, dried out old piece of crusty poop?? Her hair is fried to oblivion…her voice sounds TERRIBLE…her face is puffed out and she is seriously NOT the attractive young girl she once was. She’s disgusting.

  37. Relli says:

    I will be watching and hoping for an OPEN POST to discuss the crack play by play. I get its just for ratings but its been years since we have actually seen this girl act, I want to see these Oscar worthy moves shes supposedly got.

  38. Kimbob says:

    I’m surprised no one has commented on her Lauer and Fallon interviews….like this “persona” of hers. I must say…great acting, Lindsay!

    Since when in the hell was Lindsay Lohan NICE, AFFABLE, and EASYGOING? She’s definitely “acting” in these interviews. She’s a self-obsessed narcissist of the highest order. She is not the person in these interviews, that’s for sure.

  39. G says:

    I guess everyone at NBC is towing the party line.

    Check out Fallon’s “Oh,shiite” face when she asks him to appear?

  40. Tazina says:

    Lindsay has been trying hard and has cleaned herself up. It’s really not necessary to tromp her into the ground anymore with cutting, vindictive and cruel comments. Grow up and cut the girl some slack. Everyone deserves a second chance!

    • anon33 says:

      See above for the Truth Fairy’s comment re: second chances. This trick is on like her ninth chance.

    • novaraen says:

      HAHAHAHAHAHAHA….really?? you think this is only her SECOND chance?? like anon33 said…she has had MANY chances and by the looks of her, girl is made of LIES. That is not a healthy looking person. Hard to give someone who has been selfish beyond selfish this many chances to GET REAL. I used to say way back when her shenanigans first started that I felt sorry for her and that I hoped she got herself together. That never happened. Hard to like someone who has made herself so unlikeable.

  41. Newtsgal says:

    OK the Cracken has told anybody that will listen that she has been doing research and reading up on Ms. Taylor….well, just based on what she said in the 1st interview around the 1:40 mark is proof of yet another crackie lie. Note to Blohan: just cuz you pickup a book and look at the pretty pictures doesn’t mean you’ve researched the story. You are proven a fool everytime you open your mouth!
    As for “cleaning up” she might have for the week. Which is very dangerous, stopping and starting drug use that and she is already staying at the CM…..it seems to me, the perfect cocktail for an OD…..I’m just sayin!

  42. cmc says:

    Hey you guys, where is Michael Lohan? Am I the only one surprised that we haven’t heard from him at all lately?

  43. tar says:

    She may or may not be “clearheaded”, I can only give the benefit of the doubt there, BUT she does NOT “look great”. I watched Jimmy Falon last night and she looked horrible, and I’m not saying that to be catty.

    I really was quite shocked actually at how “filled in” she looked in the face, kind of puffy and bloated. My husband walked in while I was watching and couldn’t believe that was her. She looks about 40-45 years old, trying to look 25 with all that work she had done.

    She used to be such a beautiful girl! It was such a contrast to the clip they played of the last time she was on SNL, and she looked normal.

    I’m not against plastic surgery per se, but these girls in their 20′s getting work done that seems to me is more meant for women in their later years getting “freshened up” Why the hell a 20 year old needs fillers is just beyond me. It’s like Megan Fox, so beautiful, and she messes up her face with that stuff for absolutely no reason!

  44. skuddles says:

    Uh huh… just because she’s not face planting in front of the paparazzi or buying drugs in broad daylight, I am not convinced she’s actually clean. Time will tell.

  45. Lisa says:

    “Source” doesn’t count if it is Lindsay or Dina Lohan.

  46. ZenB!tch says:

    She does look decent in the still shot US has of her from the Today show – except that dress is to skanky for Today. However it IS a still of her done up by a professional stylist. The stylist/make up hair team should be commended. Her face has color and she’s not wearing that 80s ho-bag pink lipstick that she has been sporting lately (see picture 1).

    I’ve not seen the video of that appearance and I’m afraid to click on the Kimmel one (where she looks more covered up but not as well styled). The picture US had with a double chin “yet she does not appear to have gained weight” was a riot.

  47. jham says:

    i agree that it is obvious that she has been through a rough half-a-decade at this point, and it is obvious she is no longer or ever will be the fresh-faced 16 year old with so much potential that we all wish she could turn back and be, but i think everyone is trying hard to be supportive because it does appear, at least at this point, that she is trying to some degree. I believe in giving people an opportunity to get their lives together even if they have already had so many. if she messes up again then she is the only one who loses in reality, and hopefully she is finally aware of that.

  48. barbie says:

    my daughter just turn 26 I look @ her & can’t imagine or see where she needs lips inflated, cheeks filled up, teeth veneer, extensions to cover malnutritioned hair- etc etc. this is all self induced by Lindsey by living the hard life of drugs. I can’t stand all the chances she has been granted only because if it were you or me those rules (?) would not apply ( the message on the fingernail was my last straw) but chances she has been given. good luck Lindsey u have been a sad story for too long in your young life. One request tho stay away from Elizabeth Taylor pleeeeze. she was so freaking beautiful. I have the DVD & video tape (just shows my age) A Place in the Sun, could she be more stunning in that film!!! father of the bride who’s afraid of V
    W? Giant, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof. I found an old slip @ a thrift store & would wear it around my apartment on hot summer days, it dosen’t make me Maggie the cat but it was fun to wear. Please don’t tarnish her beauty by trying to play her even if its a LT movie that’s all I ask.

  49. SCREEEE says:

    I swear to Dina, if this b*tch drags Kristen Wiig down with her…

    OK, Tina Fey survived, as did McAdams, Seyfried, Caplan and co., but… I worry. DON’T SUCK THE TALENT OUT OF SNL, YOU SKANKY SMACKHEAD. >:(

  50. jwoolman says:

    She looks much better to me in the Jimmy pictures (actually recognizable) than in the GMA and SNL promo pictures. Is it just a difference in hair/makeup? Different levels of drugs/alcohol? Different drugs?

  51. Binky44 says:

    Man the Fallon clips are uncomfortable to watch….she is so clearly inauthentic and he is sucking up hard…like WTF.

    There is also a nice big bruise on her left arm. She has had unexplained bruises for years. Part and parcel of being a user.

    The fact that she is playing Liz Taylor makes my blood boil. What a disgrace.

    She wouldn’t annoy me so much but she keeps coming back and telling us how she is clean and it is so obviously a lie. She had no idea what to say when Matt asked her how long she had been clean for….you could see the wheels turning as she thought about it. She said “for a long time.” I guess to some people, 8 hours can be a long time…

  52. sabine says:

    I am so over it. why do we still care? She hasn’t done anything worthwhile in a long time. And whatever talent she did have seems to be gone. And now her strange appearance. I feel sorry for her
