We are just one day away from Lindsay Lohan’s stint as guest host on Saturday Night Live tomorrow night but on her way to the SNL stage, she paid a visit to Late Night with Jimmy Fallon last night. L. Lo is working OVERTIME to show the world that she is a changed person, ready to clean up her act and get back to work. As part of her campaign to revamp her image, Lindsay decided to show her fun side on Late Night last night by playing a bit of Pictionary on the show. How well did she do? Click below and find out.
Lindsay Lohan is certainly on the comeback trail offensive, filming her second interview in as many days to promote her upcoming Saturday Night Live appearance. Billed at the troubled starlet’s last-chance bid to win over fans again, the 25-year-old isn’t taking any chances, and turned on her mega-watt charm as she appeared on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon in New York. Looking sleek in a monochrome mini dress that hugged her figure, Lindsay discussed her SNL hosting gig with the former castmember Fallon, and enthusiastically played a game of Pictionary with the audience. Miss Lohan wasn’t afraid to admit that she unabashedly pursued SNL producer Lorne Michael to ask him to let her back on the show after her eight years in showbiz wilderness. ‘I kept asking him, the determined starlet revealed. ‘I wasn’t giving up.’ Lindsay told how she bumped into the industry legend in Los Angeles and she had no trouble convincing him in person. ‘You know Lorne, he’s very straight to the point,’ she said. ‘He was like, “What about March 3?”, I’m like, “I’m free!” Lohan will follow up her SNL hosting gig with a television movie about one of her idols, Elizabeth Taylor. Despite her years of hard-partying, dabbling in illicit substances and a brief stint playing porn star Linda Lovelace before being ousted from the role, Lindsay’s mind still appears somewhat innocent, as the actress appeared baffled when the audience erupted into laughter when she announced the name of the film was to be Liz and Dick. The Lifetime movie will focus on the screen icon’s many relationships, particularly with Richard Burton. Lohan revealed recently that Taylor gifted her with a costume ring before her death. ‘It came with this beautiful note, hand-written by Elizabeth Taylor, which was very encouraging about my work – and that work is something I should concentrate on,’ she said. ‘It’s a costume ring! It has a cognac-coloured stone with precious stones set round it. After I was sent it, I put the ring, and the letter, away in a safe place so I wouldn’t lose it. But I took them out recently when I was asked to portray her. It’s a tiny connection to her.’
I know that people are looking forward to Lindsay’s return to acting when she starts work on her Lifetime TV movie but, I’m sorry to say, I think she’s already restarted her acting career … we’ve been seeing it all week long. Again, I want to believe that Lindsay is a changed woman but … well, actions speak louder than words. I don’t buy it yet … but if she proves me wrong, I’ll be happy to admit it. She seems really gung-ho about this career revival tho, I gotta give her that. We’ll see if she’s truly serious this time. We shall see, we shall see.
