Lindsey Lohan...

Oh Lindsey.

I just watched the Oprah interview with Lindsey Lohan.  She talked all about her little scrapes with the law, her addiction, and her chaotic family life(although she really didn't say as much on that- bummer).  It wasn't an insightful interview really, but I couldn't peel my eyes away... But to be honest, I think that's just because I think she is so pretty.

Like Sharon Stone pretty.  Just gorgeous.

I know people always talk about what a shame her behavior has been because she's such a talented actress (even Oprah commented on her great talent).  But for me, "Mean Girls" was the high point of her career and was she really that amazing in it?  Was "Herbie: Fully Loaded" really anything that great? And what about "Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen"?   More recently, Lindsey starred in the horrible Lifetime Original movie "Liz and Dick".  So, I'm sorry, but Lindsey is no Jodi Foster.  Her movie choices don't seem that impressive, and acting is not outstanding.

I think what made her uber famous was all the court hearings regarding DWIs, breaking probation, etc.  It's kind of  similar to Amanda Bynes' current "situation".  (I didn't even know her name until she started using her twitter feed, calling famous people mean names, shaving her head, etc. as a way to document her fall into some kind of mental disease.)

Towards the end of the interview with Oprah, Lindsey was asked (by Oprah, of course) to reconsider her planned trip to Europe.  Oprah asked Lindsey to think about if going off to Europe was really the best thing for her recovery right now.  Lindsey said, "Yes, I'll think about that."  And then there was a follow up note, sorta like they do on "Intervention", letting us viewers know that Lindsey did, indeed, cancel the trip to Europe.  Yay, Lins!

So that proves it.  She's serious about her recovery.  And when Oprah talks, people (even Lindsey) listen.

I don't have that channel so I wasn't able to watch but I did catch a few minutes online. I really hope for her own sake that she is serious about her recovery and doesn't slip up again. If Robert Downey Jr. can do it, so can Lindsay!

You have to go back to her early days of acting to see her talent--she was great in Parent Trap and Freaky Friday (both of which I've seen recently). She was so young and handled both roles really well.

I'm so behind on Tivo and still haven't seen the interview yet.

I hope she's able to make it through. I think she's a good person, and like Marie said above, if RDJ could do it, hopefully Lindsey can too.
