Lohan says she's ready to take responsibility

April 27th, 2011 in News

NEW YORK (AP) - Lindsay Lohan says she's made poor decisions in the past, but insists she's ready to deal with the consequences.

Appearing on NBC's "Tonight Show" on Tuesday, the troubled actress acknowledged feeling shock at last week's ruling by a Los Angeles judge that sentenced her to jail. But when asked by host Jay Leno if her treatment was fair or unfair, Lohan said she was "treated the way I should be treated."

"I'm a big girl," the 24-year-old Lohan said, "and I'm gonna do what I'm told to do."

On Friday, Lohan was sentenced to 120 days in jail for violating her probation by taking a designer necklace. The actress's attorneys appealed the sentence. Lohan was freed on bond after a few hours behind bars.

She told the "Tonight" audience that she's playing the wife of John Gotti Jr. in the crime family movie, "Gotti: Three Generations." Her casting in the role was announced last week but it was unclear whether her legal woes might affect it.

Lohan said she's "let a lot of my fans down by putting myself in situations when I was young and wasn't thinking clearly," but she expressed hope that she could get her acting career back on track.

"As long as I stay focused, then I will be able to achieve what I want to achieve," she said.

Asked by Leno where she saw herself at age 30, she replied, "Hopefully sitting here after I've won an Oscar. That would be ideal."

Her "Tonight Show" interview was taped Monday.
