Lindsay Lohan on Oprah's Next Chapter: I'm an Addict (But Focused)!

by at .  Updated at . Comments

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 ...

Be VERY careful Lindsay. oprah isn't one a WHITE person should be trusting. She can give advice to everyone about MARRIAGE, and she isn't or has NEVER been married. As for RACE, *verebatim* here. *She COULD care LESS about the WHITE RACE* as she stated in the opening of her school in AFRICA.. Amazing to see her in a HAPPY mode because of the school, and in the same breath, she let her INNER HEART feelings out WITHOUT a care in the world because she was so HAPPY about the school. Nothing in her mind, at the time of the interview would interfere with her CREDIT for this school... She of all people is one hellova POWERFUL RACIST, and very disappointing.

Geronimo, that is absolutely ridiculous. Oprah is a rich black person you would probably prefer to see on food stamps so you can justify your ingnorance and bigotry. What is it? Are you ashamed that it is taking a POWERFUL RICH BLACK woman to reach out to and hopefully help Lindsay Lohan? You're an idiot and I am surprised you even know how to operate a computer.
