Lindsay Lohan gets `Tonight Show' ovation
LOS ANGELES (AP) -April 26, 2011 (WPVI) -- Troubled actress Lindsay Lohan can count a "Tonight Show" studio audience among her boosters.
In an appearance taped to air on the talk show Tuesday, Lohan received a standing ovation from the crowd, according to a person connected with the show.
"Tonight" host Jay Leno asked the 24-year-old about touchy subjects including her court appearance and brief jailing Friday, her family and what she's learned from her experiences.
The person spoke on condition of anonymity because NBC had announced Lohan's appearance but not its details.
Lohan's interview with Leno was taped separately at the conclusion of Monday's show. The "Mean Girls" actress is a late addition to Tuesday's show, knocking a scheduled guest, Broadway star Kristin Chenoweth, to another date.
Lohan 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 if her legal woes might affect it.
A Los Angeles judge sentenced Lohan to 120 days for violating her probation by taking a designer necklace, a charge the judge reduced from felony grand theft to a misdemeanor. The actress's attorneys appealed the jail sentence, Lohan's fourth, and she was freed on bond after a few hours behind bars.
Lohan told Leno she found the sentence "shocking" and said it her left her "kind of numb."
