Lindsay Lohan

'Grateful' for Jay Leno

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.

a standing ovation? Why? Americans idolize the strangest of creatures. No wonder we have become a laughing stock everywhere else in the world, we truly have become a joke, a bad joke. Boo to us.

@Nikki. ;)

How is it, do you think it is, that the Lohans can't put together their rapacious and stupid preocupation with being daily tabloid fodder with Lindsay's plummeting Q rating and reputation?

Lohan is the bottom of the barell. Movie is a flop. No director. No money! Travolta as the "GODFATHER" - c'mon are you for real... We hear "adopted son" Lewis Kasman is doing a TELL ALL book on the Gotti's...... That should be a winner!

I find that hard to believe.. unless the audience was paid to do this.

She is not liked and that is a fact. The next movie she does (if that ever happens) will prove that when no one bothers to see it. I know I am totally turned off by her and would not spend my hard earned money on a drunk driver crackhead with no remorse.

Sounds like the movie itself is a rumor at this point. The only confirmed actor is Travolta, Pesci and Lindsay are listed as 'rumors'.. no director, shooting for a 2013 release? Yeah this is the hot track comeback of the year... not.

A standing ovation? LoL What has she done to deserve that? Sounds like ridiculous PR (Dina) lies to me.

HAHAHAHAHAH    

I wish nothing but the best for Lindsay. Even though she has made many mistakes, she still deserves to be able to get her life straight and get back to doing what she loves to do. I really do think she will get it right this time. I think she just needs to focus, work hard, be with family, and leave the clingers behind. Yes she has had a ton of chances but sometimes people need more than one downfall to really get back up. I wish you well Lilo! Show em what you got!

Being daily tabloid fodder, is how they make their money
Dina doesnt work, Lindsay hasnt worked since??????
Mike jr. Ali, and Cody are not bringing in any income..Even Douche Bag Daddy counts on the tabloids for his income

All the Lohans do is sell lie after lie
