Lindsay Lohan says she is an addict who took a long time to get it together, but she has, and her future is looking much brighter these days.
In her much-anticipated interview with Oprah Winfrey last night, the troubled actress declared that this, her sixth stint in rehab, will be the charm.
We know what you're thinking, and Oprah asked her point blank: How is this possibly different than all the other times Lindsay Lohan has gone to rehab?
The 27-year-old said she's in "a completely different head space" now and vowed to stay "present and clear-headed and focused" going forward.
"I feel whole again," she told Winfrey, "and I have such a desire to want to keep this feeling and stay this way, and I'm willing to do whatever it takes."
Lohan acknowledged an addiction to alcohol, which "in the past was a gateway to other things for me," but she offered no specifics other than cocaine.
That drug, she says, she has used no more than 15 times.
Winfrey asked what she's on now. LiLo replied, "Vitamins."
"You're not on any prescription drugs?" Winfrey pressed.
"No, no," Lindsay Lohan insisted, then checked herself:
"I take Nexium. Because I have acid reflux."
Better than Adderall.
The wide-ranging interview will be followed by an eight-part docu-series on OWN, and in setting that up, this sit-down certainly touched on all the topics.
Lindsay also discussed her unusual family situation, her first wake-up call, why she wanted to go to jail initially, and what made her feel whole again.
Oprah, as expected, was kind and approachable but did not shy away from asking the tough questions or broaching difficult subjects very straightforwardly.
Lindsay confessed that her familiarity with such a chaotic life was like an addiction as well, and fed her much-reported partying and her brushes with the law.
She says she takes full blame for her mistakes, however, and Winfrey asked if she can turn it around this time, Lohan said without hesitation, "Yeah."
Can she? You be the judge ...
