Lindsay Lohan sat down with Oprah Winfrey for Sunday's episode of Oprah's Next Chapter in the US, and in the highly anticipated interview, she opened up about everything from her "chaotic family" to her struggles with drugs and alcohol. The actress, who has seen multiple arrests, court dates and rehab stints over the years, completed her stay at a Malibu facility earlier this month and seems to be making a serious effort to get her life and career back on track. Lindsay's interview gave us a new look at the former child star — here are eight of the most revealing quotes from her Oprah's Next Chapter appearance:
- On her first DUI and going to jail: "You would think in that situation, someone would be like, 'Holy sh*t, I need to check myself.' It's the definition of insanity, doing the same thing over and over again. At that point, I somewhere inside knew and kind of wanted to go to jail, just to find some peace and have no choice but to just sit and be. I don't think the embarrassment was as prominent as the shame and the guilt."
- On her most recent rehab stint: "I think I just hit a wall. I said [to my attorney, Shawn Holley], 'I think the best option is for me to go to treatment, and just take these three months to really just take care of myself, and find myself.'"
- On what rehab means to her: "I think in the past I've never really surrendered to the fact I just need to shut up and listen. In this [most recent] case, I wasn't fighting at all; I just let go. I came into it really willing, and really craving more spirituality."
- On her addiction and drug of choice: "Alcohol. It was a gateway to other things for me. I've done [cocaine] like 10-15 times. I think that's why I did it, because it allowed me to drink more. I snorted it; I've never injected anything other than getting B12 shots."
