Lindsay Lohan Gets Ready To Host Saturday Night Live
After having some amazing probation check-ups, it seems that Lindsay Lohan is on the right track. And she is going to try and prove herself this Saturday by hosting Saturday Night Live.Lindsay has been fighting hard to prove that she can return to the starlet she once was. This morning she sat down with Today's Matt Lauer to talk about hosting SNL and a film about Elizabeth Taylor.
"I don't want people to have that reason to be scared anymore," Lohan said. "So being able to have this opportunity with SNL and the film, I'm gonna do what I'm supposed to do, and enjoy doing it, and do it as best as I can."
She admitted that she knows its hard for people to trust her, saying:
"I still need to go through the process of proving myself," she admitted, noting that she's "clean and sober" and ready to move forward "in the right direction."
"It's a scary thing to have to kind of express to people...I wasn't as comfortable with myself then," Lauer then asked if she was in denial the last time they spoke. "I think it was a fear factor that I had about what was really going on. And, you know, I had to get that wake-up call."
"I went out, actually, a few months ago with a friend. And I was so uncomfortable," she recalled. "Not because I felt tempted, just because it was just the same thing that it always was before. And it just wasn't fun for me. I've become more of a homebody. And I like that."
Although she is doing good right now, it is going to take a while before Hollywood believes her and she openly admits it.
"I think that that's gonna take—I think that takes time," Lohan noted. "And I think that it's actions. Because people can say things all they want, but I think I still need to go through the process of proving myself, you know, with SNL, being on time, being, you know, keeping my—can't say the word—but stuff together."
As far as playing Elizabeth Taylor, Lohan says she is doing all kinds of research so that she can nail the role. Right now the movie is still in the beginning stages of casting.
The interview with Matt Lauer airs Thursday morning. We wish Lindsay all the luck, and she is going to need it with her reputation. Well have to see if she proves us all wrong.
