Lindsay Lohan is always hitting the news for what she’s done wrong and how her life is going awry but when she appeared on the Late Show with David Letterman on Tuesday night she actually did something right.
As we all know, the actress is due to start rehab shortly but despite all the bad press she still went on the show to promote her latest movie Scary Movie.
Honestly, the interview was pretty awkward in parts as David didn’t hold back on asking questions relating to her stints in rehab and her problems with addiction but he also made a very good point.
Letterman said that despite the fact that she’s the butt of a whole load of jokes at the moment, she’s still had the balls to come on a chat show and do publicity, he even said that he was pretty sure that he’d never see the actress doing an interview again.
He is completely right, if the entire world was talking about you in a bad way would you want to show your face?
Yes, she’s done some pretty ridiculous things and she does deserve to go to rehab, I mean realistically she should be in jail, but she’s also incredibly brave to face the public like that.
I would even go so far as to say that she’s earned my respect. She’s had a pretty tough time yet she’s still willing to do what it takes to promote her films and make a fresh start, I doubt many would do the same in her situation.
Yes, she turned on the water works but don’t think that made me soft, I think it just reminded me that she’s only human, so cut the girl some slack and move your negative quips to the more deserving – Amanda Bynes, for example.
