Lindsay Lohan has finally spoken out about the time she spent behind bars, and revealed some secrets from the inside on The Jonathan Ross Show, which she appeared on recently.
Lohan, 28, who is currently spending her time starring on the West End stage in London, in Speed-the-Plow, was only incarcerated for around two weeks of her 90-day sentence for breaking probation and using cocaine as well as driving under the influence of alcohol. But jail time is jail time, no matter how long it lasts.
During the British talk show, Lindsay Lohan opened up about her time behind bars, revealing that she was even in solitary confinement for a period of time.
As Lohan shared with her host, “You leave for one hour a day but you don’t go outside. Other girls in those cells were in there for murder. They told me it was for safety purposes but what am I going to do?”
Lindsay also spoke about how, while the jail time was tough for her, it was in a way a good thing.
“I made a mistake. I went to a club, I drank and I drove home. It is not the right thing to do but to put someone in that position… it was very scary. But I finally had silence in my life. As scared as I was, I finally felt like I did not have to answer to anyone or do anything for anyone,” she said.
Ever since the show was recorded, Lohan’s reps have been in a fight with ITV, the network that produces The Jonathan Ross Show, as they allege she was made to feel “upset and uncomfortable” by the show’s host, when he asked her about her time in prison. Lohan’s people want that part of the interview to be cut when the show airs.
The question which reportedly upset Lindsay Lohan the most was the one about how long specifically she spent incarcerated, to which she replied, “I have no idea. I’ve blocked that part out. That’s in the past. OK. You are not putting this on the show.”
Toward the end of the somewhat awkward interview, Jonathan Ross thanked his guest, saying, “Well, it’s been lovely, occasionally tense, having you here. But that’s not necessarily a bad thing. I was just going on about the same subject, which is why you, understandably, got a little defensive.”
