Actress Lindsay Lohan had a lot to say in a recent interview on “Oprah’s Next Chapter.”
Weeks after finishing her sixth stint in rehab, Lohan admitted she was a troubled addict who wanted to go to jail “just to find peace.”
“I think it was just to find some peace and just have no choice but to just sit and be,” said Lohan.
Although the 84 days behind bars in 2007 wasn’t enough to change the 27-year-old actress’ behavior, Lindsay told Oprah Winfrey that she takes responsibility for her actions and things are going to be different this time.
“I’m my own worst enemy, and I know that and I admit it,” said Lohan. She said she only realized she had a problem “over a period of time,” rather than at any one moment.
“I wasn’t fighting at all,” she explained. “I just let go and was able to just be like ‘OK you probably do know what’s best,’ because my idea of doing what’s best for me has not worked in the past.”
Winfrey also grilled the “Parent Trap” actress on her drug use. Lohan admitted that she was addicted to alcohol, but mentioned that she had used cocaine 10 to 15 times to help her drink more.
“That, in the past, was a gateway to other things for me,” she said. “It allowed me to drink more. I think that’s why I did it.”
During the hour-long interview, Lindsay Lohan expressed how she was “exhausted by the chaos” and vowed that her troubled past was behind her because she’s in a “different headspace.”
“It’s a process of growing up and recognizing and being just so tired and exhausted by the chaos…I have had no right in my past to complain about being followed by cameras and people making up stories, but there’s something to be said about me moving forward that if I’m going to put myself in a public situation — that’s open season for people to say what they’re gonna say. I can’t control that but I can control not putting myself there.”
“I’m different,” she added. “I’m in a different headspace…. I feel whole again.”
