Lindsay Lohan‘s candid interview with Oprah Winfrey has finally aired on Sunday (August 18), revealing details of her past drug use and future as an actor and recovering alcoholic.
“I’m an addict,” the 27-year-old actress said of alcohol. “That, in the past, was a gateway to other things for me. I tried cocaine with alcohol,” she added, but explained that she did not enjoy using cocaine. “I never felt good the next day…it allowed me to drink more. It was a party thing. People would have it, and I’d do it.”
“Having all the chaos around me that I was so comfortable with, I somewhere inside knew I wanted to go to jail,” Lindsay said about needing help. “And I think that that was subconsciously being put out there just by my actions, or lack thereof.”
When asked if she was addicted to chaos, Lindsay said, “I think so. Yeah, it was a comfortable choice to me. What was chaotic to other people in the outside looking in was normal. There is something to be said about me learning to be comfortable with things just being OK.”
“[I'm ready] to get the thing that has made me happiest my whole life back, which is to work really hard, stay focused and prove myself,” Lindsay said about looking to the future. “I have to regain trust in people, in my career, that had doubts, and I fully respect that on their behalf. As long as I stay honest in myself and do the work I’m willing to do and have been willing to do and am doing, then nothing can stand in my way. I am my own worst enemy, and I know that.”
