Lindsay Lohan

'Grateful' for Jay Leno

4/26/2011 10:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Jay Leno won the battle for Lindsay Lohan because the actress feels "grateful" for the way he's treated her over the years ... sources connected with the actress tell TMZ.

Lohan pre-taped an episode of "The Tonight Show" yesterday ... set to air tonight ... and according to reports, she received a standing ovation when she walked on to the set.

Sources connected to Lohan tell us she has been receiving several offers to appear on talk shows since she was sentenced to jail last week ... but chose Leno because, "He has been nothing but good to her and her family over the years ... and has always been protective of her."

Of course, Lohan was furious with Letterman earlier this year -- when the comic ripped her on his show following a booking fiasco. Video of Lindsay heading to the studio below.042611_lohan_inf_still



During the interview, Lohan talked about her sentence -- telling Jay she felt "kind of numb" after the judge threw the book at her.

Lohan also talked about the "Gotti" movie -- reconfirming that she WILL be playing the role of John Gotti Jr.'s wife.

what a complete joke she has become, now crashing talk shows on top of all things. Was she not wearing a bra on Leno's show either? She'll be whaling again in Lynwood soon enough, pissing off the other inmates.

Lindsay probably did NOT send flowers to Jen Heger.
But she should have.

Gee, didn't Lindsay trot out the exact "I was young and made mistakes speech" on the Georgia Rule red carpet 4 years and 5 rehabs ago?

LOL he's always been so "kind" to her and her family! What a joke, he's ripped on her just as much as Lettermen and anyone else out there. NOBODY gives a **** about her or is "protective" of her.

I find it amazing that people are proud of Lindsay for getting a felony changed to a misdemeanor, or for only doing 24 hours in Lynwood instead of 120 days. Like these are good things.

How twisted are these people?

Another reason to add to the long list of reasons NOT to watch Leno.

Jay Leno... who watches Jay Leno? If you went to this show please give me a good answer to "why you would give this girl a standing ovation"? What a sad sad world we are living in.

Why is Milo trolling the boards? Doesn't he have some celebrity boxing match coming up? Shouldn't you be training for that? You're fighting a 3rd grader right? The chest pains you get right before the fight or when you have to go to jail is fear. Just take a couple of deep breaths and breathe through it. You'll be ok. No reason to call it off and go to the hospital.

I can't say what goes on during the taping of the Leno show, but Letterman's show has people out there in front of the audience to get them all jacked up, and has applause signs. I'd bet money some dumbass was out there flailing his arms up coaxing everyone to stand up. I can't believe there would be an audience full of people that would willingly give her a standing ovation...
