There's been a lot of chatter about Lindsay Lohan and her supposed dedication to recovery. We've seen her relapse into bad habits time and again, so it's no wonder claims of progress from her probation department and a light-hearted jaunt on SNL aren't enough to convince fans she's truly on the straight and narrow. However, when she spoke to Matt Lauer on the Today Show, she was somber, honest, and seemingly genuine. Could it be that Lilo is serious about getting better this time?
She delivered quite a few promises and statements that could truly signal a return to the Lindsay we loved before her career hit the skids. Here's the proof - let's just hope these are reality and not deceitful segue to more Linsanity.
She's Grown a Lot
"I've grown. I've learned to live my life in a way that I'm happy It's this last sort of whirlwind experiences in the past year I think it was a fear factor that I had about what was really going on And I had to get that wake-up call."
She's Done Running With the Wrong Crowd"It gets very lonely in this industry I just allowed a lot of people around me at all times and I don't think they were necessarily there for the right reasons. But I wasn't really concerned with that. I think I was being a bit ignorant towards the fact that maybe I should not go out all the time. Maybe I should rest and grow up."
She's All About Progress"I regret the choices that I've made, but I'm grateful for where they've taken me I don't want to go back to that place. I want to move forward with my life I want to keep growing in the right ways."
She's Ready to Rebuild Her Reputation
"I think that takes time, I think that's actions I still need to go through the process of proving myself. With SNL, being on time, keeping my - I can't say the word - keeping my stuff together It's just a process and I'm willing to go through that process and prove I'm accountable."
"I can see where it can be scary for people to invest in me. I'm going to do what I'm supposed to do and enjoy doing it and do as best as I can."
She's Done Dating - It's All About Her Own Happiness Now
"I've learned to love myself and I've learned to take the time to do what I need to do that's going to make me happy and that's the first time in my life I've ever said that. So that's a big deal for me, to not feel the need to kind of have someone else around to keep me company. And I'm okay with that right now."
