The ‘mean’ girl recently sat down for an interview with Matt Lauer, which will air on the “Today” show Thursday, March 1, and said she is a homebody these days and she likes it.
Speaking about night life and partying, the starlet said, “That’s not my thing anymore. I went out, actually, a few months ago with a friend. And I was so uncomfortable.”
She explained: “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.”
Lohan who also just got a rave review from L.A. Superior Court Judge Stephanie Sautner, when they spoke last, the actress was in denial, writes MSN.
“Definitely,” Lohan said. “And I think it was – it’s a scary thing to have to kind of express to people … I wasn’t as comfortable with myself then. I think it was a fear factor that I had about what was really going on. And, you know, I had to get that wakeup call.”
She is currently on probation after pleading no contest in May 2011 to stealing a $2,500 necklace from a Los Angeles boutique, in addition to a 2007 DUI case.
“I want my career back,” the actress told reporters in July 2010. “I want the respect that I had when I was doing great movies. And if that takes not going out to a club at night, then so be it. It’s not fun anyway. I don’t care. It’s the same thing every time.”
She later assured: “I’m a completely different person now.”
The starlet met the judge last week in Los Angeles to report that she had completed 15 days of community service and five therapy sessions since her previous court date in January.
Judge praised Lohan for her progress, telling her she was “in the homestretch” and could finish her probation by her next court hearing, set for March 29, writes AU’s News.
The celebrity reportedly contacted SNL executive producer Lorne Michaels personally and asked to host the show. She has previously hosted three times between 2004 and 2006.
So, Lohan, who’s finally hosting Saturday Night Live this weekend, told Matt Lauer: “You know, with SNL, being on time, being, you know, keeping my – can’t say the word – but stuff together.”
The actress also revealed some pieces of information about the process of the project.
“We’re in the middle of casting and figuring – we start production soon,” she said. “I’ve been doing tons of research. But I’ve always kind of researched her. She’s always been a fascinating woman to me. So I’m really honored. And I will not let anyone down, especially myself.”
Lohan also admitted that she understands how it might be scary for people to invest in her.
“I don’t want people to have that reason to be scared anymore. 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.”
