Lindsay Lohan's more of a 'homebody' now
Even through her legal ups and downs, we knew Lindsay Lohan had a sense of humor - if only because of how often "Mean Girls" is on TV.
And in a promo for her fourth "Saturday Night Live" hosting gig, which will air on Saturday, Lohan shows she's still got a handle on comedic timing - even when she's making fun of herself.
Paired with Kenan Thompson, she jokes that it does feel good to be back in the spotlight, as "people are probably wondering what I've been up to."
Kenan replies that he, for one, would've liked to know more details about her personal life. "It's unfortunate that everyone's paid so little attention to you over the past few years," he says without breaking a smile.
"I know, if only magazines and websites could've documented my activities more closely...America could've used more information about me, and maybe even a picture or two." Insert knowing look there.
Thankfully, Matt Lauer is here to help with Lohan's reintroduction. The 25-year-old will sit down with the "Today" anchor for an interview Thursday, and a clip of their chat shows Lohan saying she's changed her partying ways.
"I'm clean and sober now," Lohan says, adding, it's been "for awhile. It's been a long time."
The actress continues that she's seen how substance abuse can dampen one's talent. "It's a really sad factor that can come into play in people's lives sometimes if you don't recognize it. 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."
These days, though, Lohan says her past temptations no longer hold her interest.
"I could [go to parties], but that's not my thing anymore," she tells Lauer. "I went out a few months ago with a friend, and I felt so uncomfortable. Not because I was tempted, just because it was the same thing it always was before, and it just wasn't fun for me. I've become more of a homebody and I like that."

About this blog
Our daily cheat-sheet for breaking celebrity news, Hollywood buzz and your pop-culture obsessions.
Conjunctivitis and subconjunctival hemorrhage are two of the less serious but more common causes. Management includes assessing whether emergent action (including referral) is needed, or whether treatment can be accomplished without additional resources. Slit lamp examination is invaluable in diagnosis but initial assessment can be performed using a careful history, testing vision (visual acuity), and carrying out a penlight examination.`,–

Haha, right... that's what she said about drugs before her next 50 times of being busted and thrown back into rehab. We'll see...
Something smell superficial,Lindsay,been there seen it done that,don't try to B.S. a B.S er.
I would't hit that with a stolen d!ck
Yikes! Who is that 45 year old with the long blonde hair. I thought this piece was about LiLo.
she looks silly.
She is still a pretty girl but not as beautiful as she used to be 🙁
What is up with the dark brown eyebrows and blonde hair? Lord, someone close to her needs to let her know she looks ridiculous.
i hope she is telling the truth drugs hurt. hang in lindsay
gawd dayum! she looks like he ll!
Ghostbusters 3 Please....common Bill
Secret song with Amy Winehouse and Alborosie:
Rollin SD interview where Alborosie announces secret Amy Winehouse song:
looks like her knees have been getting a workout (beejays ?)
Everybody makes mistakes, although, she's made a bunch of them. It's on her to persuade the public, whether she is on the straight & narrow or not. Time will tell.
If she were truly clean and sober she would be able to tell you how long in months/days/hours/minutes easily. The fact that her answer was 'a long time' tells me that nothing has changed.
I like her and her hair color. If I had hair I would have that color too.
Those so-called polls on the front page of the Entertainment section are always so ludicrous; they always ask questions that no person answering them has any answer for. How does anyone know if Lohan is on the way to getting her life together? Not a single person here knows her or has spent a second of time with her, yet they're supposed to know the intimate details of her recovery?
Good to here from a reasoning mind instead of just ignorant judgmental a holes.
True. I don't know her in any way besides the news. I dunno if she is actually sober or not but I hope she is sober now. It's just extremely sad to see young people to get trapped into drugs and/or alcohol abuse. I wish her well. A good example of a celebrity that turned her life/career is Robert Downey Jr. so there is hope, I guess.
When I first started reading this blog ..i thought that most of the comments were racist...not true the haters hate everyone...sorry you guys are losers in life!
Shut up and lick richards balls!
yeah, you have to just skip right on by the comments on CNN Entertainment's Marquee Blogs. The posters here are the worst of the worst. It's as if it is where all the losers that the losers have cast out of their losers groups go to vent. Evel Kenieval, the Observer, and Richard Fore are three of the worst. Just "Report Abuse" 'em. I just see their names and automatically do it.
I love Lilo, she really does have talent which most people have forgoten about in her legal troubles. It looks like she really is starting to get her act together. Good for you Lilo!
Thank goodness LiLo is back on track. Her talent was being wasted by her being wasted. Keep the chin up, girl. Good luck Lindsay Lohan.
My favorite, a young drunk girl with red eyes and big cans.
U r truly EVIL....knievel....you must be short little man......lamo
More like Homley! She is just nasty her and snooki should hang otu!
She looks like a dried-up old playboy model with horrible skin and over-bleached blond hair – oh wait, she is a dried-up old playboy model with horrible skin and......
She is almost done with her probation. I think she will go back to her old ways after that.
yup, got that right.
'Dampen ones talent'? Didn't know she had any.
looks like she's showing how big it was.
Homebody as in "house arrest."
Amazing how negative people can be. It's sad that there are so many people would automatically think the worse of others without knowing the true facts. Truly sad
Yeah, right as if you know this s kanky t wat. Get a grip.
I'd like to take her body home!
Yea,and wake up with crabs in your beard lol.
My Goodness, Lindsay, you got UGLY. fer real
