Lindsay Lohan is a tough cookie on David Letterman


Lindsay Lohan appeared on the Late Show with David Letterman last night to promote Scary Movie 5. Obviously, David wanted to talk about other things- namely her court-ordered stint in rehab.

David tried his best but Lindsay was tough and deflected most questions with a joke. So it was pretty awkward and a lot of it was them joking around, with David trying to get as much out of her as possible. She refused to answer some questions, claimed that she wasn’t told about some topics in their pre-interview chat and even read his prompt sheet so he wouldn’t talk about some things out loud.


She wouldn’t answer what she was heading to rehab for specifically and she didn’t answer the question “do you have addiction problems?” which I think is very telling. She joked about her stealing, saying she was going to come out with the tag still in her dress. She also joked about her apparent alcohol addiction- after having a drink of water, she went “I thought this was going to be vokda”.

She called her upcoming three month rehab stay (commencing on May 2nd) “a blessing” and said she was looking forward to it so she could put her past behind her. When asked about her troubles, she didn’t really explain why she still gets into trouble. 

She said: “I’m a target, I also have been. I have put myself in situations in the past and I take full responsibility for it and it wasn’t funny and I was being immature. I was going through a phase and I had a lot of family stuff going on. You grow up and you mature. I’ve said that a million times, I know that. What else I am supposed to say when it’s a process of life. I’m not trying to deny any situation I’ve been put in.” 


Lindsay even teared up a bit towards the end after David congratulated her on going to rehab, that he hoped she would turn her life around by going and commented on her brave she was to come onto the show. That is true but she hasn’t been truly sorry for what she has done and I’m not convinced she won’t do it again. She plays the victim when she brings this on herself. She turned everyone against her and made the press the way they are with her bad behaviour. She needs to be more accountable.

To be fair, she seemed well, had a sense of humour, was relaxed, handled herself well and tried to keep the conversation light and positive. I appreciate the amount of bravery it took to come onto the show, knowing she would be asked personal questions. They both knew they wouldn’t talk about the movie, so I’m impressed she even showed up.

It was great to see her looking great, being funny and back to good ol’ Lindsay. I was so happy to see her seeming so well on the show because I did love her films growing up. I would love for her to sort her life out and start acting in good movies again. I just wish she wouldn’t let her personal life get in the way of her career. I seriously hope this stint in rehab will set her straight. I have my fingers crossed as I really want her to do good.

It would seem that I’m not the only one. Lindsay’s Twitter has been swamped by well wishes. She wrote: “Thanks to all for the kind words and overwhelming support #blessed.”
