Lindsay Lohan, who will be hosting Saturday Night Live this weekend, sat down with Matt Lauer for an interview that will air on The Today Show this Thursday, March 1. She chats with Matt about partying, her upcoming role where she will play Elizabeth Taylor and trying to gain back people’s trust, among many other things.
Check out a few highlights from her interview below:
On Partying: “That’s not my thing anymore. I went out, actually, a few months ago with a friend. And I was so uncomfortable. Not because I felt tempted, just because it was just the same thing that it always was before. And it just wasn’t fun for me. I’ve become more of a homebody. And I like that.”
On proving herself again: “I think that that’s gonna take — I think that takes 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 – stuff together.”
On playing the role of Elizabeth Taylor in an upcoming project: “We’re in the middle of casting and figuring– we start production soon. 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.”
On gaining back trust: “Because people — you know, I could see where it could be scary for people to invest in me. And I don’t want people to have that reason to be scared anymore. 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.”
