Is she still in makeup for one of her skits?
Lindsay Lohan must be working really hard in preparation for her fourth Saturday Night Live hosting gig this weekend, because the troubled star looked puffy and exhausted after leaving a restaurant while on a break from rehearsals in NYC, on Tuesday night.
Lohan has been working hard on her comeback after getting in trouble with the law multiple times in 2011, but she told Matt Lauer during an exclusive interview for The Today Show that she's "definitely" turning over a new leaf.
"I think that that’s gonna take time, and I think that it’s actions. Because people can say things all they want, but I think I still need to go through the process of proving myself, you know, with SNL, being on time, being, you know, keeping my — can’t say the word — but stuff together,” she told Lauer, in an interview airing Thursday.
The Mean Girls star added that she's definitely back -- and she's ready to work!
“I don’t want people to have that reason to be scared anymore,” she said. “So being able to have this opportunity with SNL and the film, I’m gonna do what I’m supposed to do, and enjoy doing it, and do it as best as I can.”
Will you watch Lilo on SNL this weekend?
Linds will also be starting production on the upcoming Lifetime TV movie, Liz & Dick, and she's been cast as one of her icons, Elizabeth Taylor. “We start production soon,” Lohan told Lauer. “I’ve been doing tons of research. But I’ve always kind of researched her. She’s always been a fascinating woman to me. So I’m really honored. And I will not let anyone down, especially myself.”
