Lindsay Lohan tells Oprah Winfrey about her life

In the interview with Oprah, the actress confesses she subconsciously wanted to go to jail, knowing that it might be a place for her to just sit and “find some peace.”
The highly anticipated sit down between Lindsay Lohan and Oprah Winfrey aired Sunday night, with the embattled starlet making a few shocking confessions, including how she actually subconsciously wanted to go to jail.
“I think it was just to find some peace and just have no choice but to just sit and be” – Lohan (27) told Winfrey.

Oprah focuses on Lohan’s addiction, beginning with a direct question for the troubled star. “Are you an addict?” she asks Lohan.
“Yeah” – Lohan answers.
“What is your drug of choice?” Oprah asks.
“Alcohol” – Lohan says. “That, in the past, was a gateway to other things for me… I tried cocaine with alcohol.”
After Lohan’s first arrest for possession, she had said that she had only done cocaine three or four times. During her conversation with Oprah, though, Lohan reveals it was more. “I really haven’t done it more than 10 to 15 times” – Lohan admits. “Of course, I said three or four. I was terrified of being judged… [But] I’ve done it 10 to 15 times.”
Lohan explains that her cocaine use went hand in hand with her drinking. “[Cocaine] allowed me to drink more,” she tells Oprah. “I think that’s why I did it when I did it. It was a party thing.”
“Would you snort it? Inject it? Smoke it?” Oprah asks.
“Oh, my, no. I snorted it” – Lohan responds.

The interview took place four days after Lohan’s release from court-ordered rehab.
This was reportedly her sixth stint in rehab.
Her first was in 2007, and Lohan told Winfrey that she wanted to attend that first time because of a “scare” after taking Ambien, but she was resistant to successive court-ordered stints after drinking and driving charges because she was being forced and she felt she would be missing out.
Further legal trouble led to a 2010 jail sentence that Lohan said was “terrifying.”
“Part of my decision was, at that point I strangely, being in my addiction and everything and having all the chaos around me that I was so comfortable with, I somewhere inside knew and kind of wanted to go to jail … and I think that that was subconsciously being put out there by me just by my actions” – she said. “I think it was just to find some peace and just have no choice but to just sit and be.”
Asked about criticism that she had — and wasted — many chances, Lohan said it was all part of a process of growing up, and she took responsibility for her mistakes, adding that she felt “lots of shame” and “tons of guilt.”
She added – “It’s always such a circus when I go to court. It’s just so humiliating.”
