Lindsay Lohan On Her Comeback: 'I Had To Get That Wake Up Call'

A couple of days at the morgue and a successful 'Playboy' cover, and Lindsay Lohan is back in business.

Finally taking the reins of her own comeback, Lindsay Lohan is set to host 'Saturday Night Live' this weekend. She sat down with Matt Lauer on the 'Today' show, her first interview since the 'Tonight Show' in April of last year.

“I will not let anyone down, especially myself," Lindsay said about her comeback.

Last time Lindsay talked to Matt, she was in denial that she had any kind of problem and insisted she was just partying the way anyone her age would. A few mug shots later, and Lohan admits she might have underestimated her issues.

“I wasn't as comfortable with myself then,” Lohan said. “I think it was a fear factor that I had about what was really going on. And, you know, I had to get that wake up call.”

Lindsay added that the Hollywood party scene is “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.”

Yeah, why go out when you can bump lines at home? I kid, I kid! Gotta get all my Lindsay coke jokes in while I can.

“I could see where it could be scary for people to invest in me,” admits Lohan, explaining, “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.”

As far as playing Elizabeth Taylor goes, Lindsay said:

"She's always been a fascinating woman to me. So I'm really honored."

The full interview is set to air on Thursday, March 1.
