Troubled actress Lindsay Lohan appears on The Jonathan Ross Show tonight to promote her West End debut in Speed The Plow.
Jonathan talks to Lindsay about going to see her in the show and discovering it was running late, something he assumed was to do with Lindsay. She explains how she was stuck in a car due to a protest in the West End, “I was actually panicking in the car and I was going to get out of the car but it would have been silly to run all the way up [to the theatre] because my Security Guard would have killed me. But it was a strange thing because you have someone in the show who is understudying for you and I see this girl standing outside and she is just waiting and then I fly past her and she’s like [disappointed] and I was like ‘Look this is my show, I’m not missing a show that will never happen!’”
During the interview Lindsay also talks about her experiences in prison. “I was actually in ‘solitary confinement’ for 14 days. ‘Solitary confinement’ is actually very different, you leave your cell for one hour a day and you don’t go outside and I don’t think anyone knows that but the other girls in the other cells were in there for murder… They [the Prison Officers] said it was for ‘safety purposes’, I said, ‘what am I going to do?’ I said, ‘I made a mistake, I went to a club and then I drank and I drove home and that’s not the right thing to do but to put someone in that position, it was very scary, it was very jarring… The weirdest part for me was I finally had silence in my life… As terrified as I was and as scared as I was, I finally felt like I didn’t have to answer to anyone and I didn’t have to do anything for anyone. That was the weirdest part of it.” When Jonathan asked if perhaps it was a good thing for her in that case, Lindsay said, “Two days would have been enough.”
Lindsay is joined on the show tonight by Russell Brand, Daniel Radcliffe and Rio Ferdinand.
The Jonathan Ross Show airs at 10.10pm tonight on ITV.
