London, March 2 (ANI): As Lindsay Lohan prepares herself for her screen comeback on 'Saturday Night Live' this weekend, the troubled star has spoken out about her previous struggles with drug addiction in a TV interview.
The 'Mean Girls' star told the TODAY show's Matt Lauer she didn't admit to herself she had a problem for a long time before seeking help to overcome her drug demons.
The 25-year-old also discussed in the candid chat about her terrifying stints in jail over the past year.
In the interview that airs in the US on Thursday night, the actress admitted she has experienced how easy it is to "fall into that world" of substance abuse.
And although she eventually realised she had a problem, it took a long process for her to admit she was an addict because she "was scared" to face her issues.
"I've experienced things like that. It's a really sad factor that can come into play in people's lives sometimes if you don't recognize it," the Daily Mail quoted her as saying.
"And a lot of people don't like to, and I think I did that for a long time. I think I was scared and didn't want to admit it to myself, let alone anyone else," she admitted.
The actress also insisted she no longer wants to be the girl who parties every night and now wants to stay at home more often, even claiming she's morphed into a "homebody."
"That's not my thing anymore. I went out, actually, a few months ago with a friend. And I was so uncomfortable. Not because I felt tempted, just because it was just the same thing that it always was before," she revealed.
"And it just wasn't fun for me. I've become more of a homebody. And I like that," she added.
Lohan has also has confirmed longstanding rumours that she's set to play veteran star Elizabeth Taylor in a new biopic.
"I think it's this recent whirlwind of experiences that I've gone through this past year and a half. I've kind of just taken a step back and I'm not doing what I love to do and I need to find that balance again," she said.
Talking about the Taylor movie, she added: "It starts when she's in Cleopatra. We start production soon. I've been doing tons of research. I'm really honoured."
And Lindsay understands it's going to take a lot of hard work to make producers trust in her again.
"I could see where it could be scary for people to invest in me and I don't want people to have that reason and be scared anymore. I'm going to do what I'm supposed to do. I will not let anyone down - especially myself," she added. (ANI)
