Lindsay Lohan gave Jay Leno’s studio audience quite a shock last night when she stopped by The Tonight Show studios for an unscheduled interview. The taped segment, which is set to air tonight, is the first time Lindsay has broken her silence since being sentenced to jail on Friday. Despite her troubles, Lilo received a hot welcome from his audience, who reportedly rose to their feet in applause when she walked into the set.
The bulk of their chat obviously revolved around her legal issues. According to RadarOnline, she admitted to feeling “kind of dumb” about the whole thing, and the sentence of 120 days in jail “left her numb.” In addition to her jail time, Lindsay also faces 480 hours of community service stemming from felonly theft charges. But she did seem hopeful for the future, apparently confirming her role as John Gotti Jr’s wife in the upcoming Gotti: Three Generations.
Lindsay has been fielding many offers to appear on big name talk shows, but those close to the actress say that she chose Leno because she feels “grateful” to him. “He has been nothing by good to her and her family over the years,” a source told TMZ, “and has always been protective of her.”
