Actress Lindsay Lohan told Oprah Winfrey in a Sunday night interview on OWN that she’s an addict, but said her addictions are to alcohol and chaos, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Lohan said during her interview with Winfrey that while she has used cocaine, her addiction is to alcohol, the story notes. She reportedly said she lied about her cocaine use, admitting that she has used the drug about 10-15 times, although she has previously said she used it only three or four times.
"I was terrified of being judged," she said in explaining why she lied about it. Lohan added that she snorted but never injected the drug.
She said she took cocaine because it "allowed me to drink more. It was a party thing. People would have it, and I’d do it."
During the interview, Lohan "remained steadfastly penitent, hit all the predicted recovery notes, and very carefully avoided anything that could be construed as a bombshell," points out Lindsey Weber on New York Magazine’s Vulture blog. The piece notes: "She also resisted the urge to complain about her parents Dina and Michael (whose dramatics have put them in just as many tabloids as their famous daughter), saying that they were currently ‘not toxic.’"
According to The Reporter, when Winfrey asked whether Lohan is "addicted to chaos," the actress replied, "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."
Lohan said she’s ready to work to regain the trust of directors, producers and other people in the industry, after her legal troubles and rehab visits.
"[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," she said. "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."
