Lindsay Lohan to Oprah Winfrey: I’m My Own Worst Enemy
The “Mean Girls” gal say down with the host just days after leaving Cliffside Malibu Rehab on July 30 and opened up about her chaotic ways.
I feel really good. It's strange being confined for three months straight and then try to acclimate into real life," Lohan explained.
The 27-year-old actress was sent to rehab in March after pleading no-contest to lying to police and reckless driving charges.
"Having all the chaos around me that I was so comfortable with -- I somehow inside of me knew I wanted to go in jail," Lindsay explained. "I think that was subconsciously going on in my head through my actions…just to have some peace," she tearfully admitted. "I came into it just really craving more spirituality, really open and ready to get really honest."
It took a two-week jail sentence to make her realize that she needed to change. "Just seeing my mom and sister's face in that courtroom and my dad was just heartbreaking. It was horrible. I just remember this rush of heat coming over me and just not knowing what to expect. I don't think the embarrassment was as prominent as the shame and the guilt."
Meanwhile, Lindsay chatted about her downward spiral, which began after she moved to Los Angeles in 2004.”That was a gateway for me for other things. I tried cocaine with alcohol.”
Lohan is looking to get back on track, and promised Oprah that this time around is different. "I'm my own worst enemy," she said.
When it comes to Lindsay’s biggest desire now, she replied, "To get the things that’s made me the happiest in my whole life back, which is just work really hard and stay focused and prove myself in the way that I did before in the past and lost. I have to regain the trust of people in my career that has their doubts."
