Lindsay Lohan is set to head to a locked rehab facility in less than a month, but in the meantime, the Punk’d alum is keeping busy. LiLo’s post-court schedule has included filming alongside Charlie Sheen, attending parties and most recently, an appearance on the Late Show with David Letterman. How did the troubled star respond to continued questions about her upcoming rehab visit?
We were predicting that Lindsay Lohan’s appearance on Letterman would be a complete disaster, but we’re glad to be proven wrong, at least, for the most part. The celeb seemed reasonably relaxed during her late night TV stint and as always, was not afraid to poke fun at herself. However, Lindsay made it clear that she had no interest in talking about her issues related to addiction and the legal system, at one point even quipping that a question related to drug abuse had not been part of the pre-interview. LiLo’s deflection of questions also included joking about having expected there to be alcohol in the mug David Letterman gave her, and later, pretending to have a secret plan to steal said mug.
Lindsay did provide a few candid answers to some of David’s more serious questions, although even these were aimed at in some way deflecting the real queries. She admitted to viewing the upcoming rehab visit as an opportunity, explaining, “I’m the happiest when I’m working and the healthiest. And I think this an opportunity for me to, you know, focus on what I love in life. And I don’t think it’s a bad thing. I think it’s a blessing … and not a curse.”
Let’s hope, for Lindsay’s sake, that she actually takes this approach while in rehab. It would be great to see the troubled celeb get back on her feet!
