Lindsay chats with Ellen...
Here is Lindsay Lohan talking with Ellen DeGeneres about her documentary series Lindsay, her rehab stints and more:
On why rehab is working this time: "When I went to treatment this time, when I went to Cliffside, I really wanted a moment for myself and I learned a lot of different tools and things that I didn't in the past. In the past, a lot of it people don't know this, but I was sent to rehab to avoid, you know, them trying to put me in jail. So it wasn't something that I necessarily wanted or was ready for. It was something that it was kind of just going with the motions. This was the first time where I went to Shawn Holley, my lawyer, and said, 'Look, I need some time. I need to figure something out. It was through kind of meditation and learning different things, and just growing up as well and being like, 'I'm tired and I want to be working and all these other girls are doing this and I've been doing this my whole life'...and maybe, you know, that's what makes me happy. So I'm just going to do what I have to do to get there again."
On moving to New York: "By moving to New York I can walk on the street and be a human being. Like, I can be normal...I've been in in L.A. for two weeks and thank god I'm leaving tomorrow because...they have not bothered me at all. It's totally different now. It's strange. I also don't put myself in the same situations. There is nothing left for me in going out to a certain place if I know what it's going to result in. It's just not worth it to me."
On rumors that she uses the Tinder dating app: "You know what is so funny? My brother went on my Instagram and did that...I've never been on Tinder...I'm okay with just taking care of me. I just want to work and take care of me right now. I don't really...That's not even a thought."
Joking about her her alleged sex list when mentioning a past breakup: "Apparently there's a list of many guys..."
On Oprah: "I speak to her almost everyday and she's just been so amazing to me. Even before the show was coming out I was getting really panicked cause I hadn't really heard my name anywhere in so long. I would turn on the TV and it was right after the Oscars, so I thought I'd have like a minute. I thought it would kind of like distract from the show, which is probably not a thing they would want to hear from the network. But then I just kept hearing my name and I started getting really like panicked about it and I just called her and she was just talking me through it and everything and she got me really into meditation. I mean that. She's one of the reasons why that's such a big part of my life. She's just been a really strong guiding light and force to me as a friend and someone that I admire."
