Lindsay Lohan insists she wants to "prove herself"
The troubled actress - whose career has been plagued by addiction and run-ins with the law - says she has put the partying behind her and now wants to work on rebuilding her career. She said: "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."
The 25-year-old `Freaky Friday` star - who has been in and out of jail and rehab since 2007 when she was arrested for drink driving and cocaine possession - is currently carrying out court-ordered community service at Los Angeles County morgue.
But having been dropped from movie projects in the past, Lindsay is seeking a fresh start and hopes her hosting slot on `Saturday Night Live` on March 1 and her role as the late Elizabeth Taylor in a forthcoming Lifetime film could herald a new beginning.
In an interview with NBC`s `Today`, which will air tomorrow (01.03.12), she said: "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, but - stuff together."
She added: "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.
"Being able to have this opportunity with `SNL` and the film, I`m going to do what I`m supposed to do, and enjoy doing it, and do it as best as I can."
