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.

dreamon The rest, yeah, are bitter angry people that Lindsay wouldn't piss on if they were on fire.

@dreamon LOL so true it's sad that her people have noting better to do than to lie and enable Lindsay. She'd be much better off if they just told her the truth. Instead of being mad at the world she should be mad at herself, in the end she's only got herself to blame.

Unbeleiveable. She sticks her nose in the air to the court system. It is a joke. She is a joke. All the people that go to jail on violation of probation for the nothings in life. This girl has repeatedly violated her probation and no doubt struck the Betty Ford employee and stole that necklace!

@SugarBear. Most people can accept a person who makes mistakes and admits them so they can go on to do better.

Judge Sautner described her as brazen. If she still thinks she can brazen this out, in spite of her Q ratings, she's got more surprises coming.

A lot of horney guys love and underdog hot mess of a girl. It makes them feel more capable. LOL.

Who the heck is she kidding. They have signs all over the place stand appulse, laugh and so on. Leno ripped her with his video of Lohan ripping off Holleys jewelry. Funniest thing Leno's done in years.

I predicted this yesterday when it was announced the star of Mean Girls would do a pre-taped interview on Leno. I knew she would get a standing ovation. Believe me, there is no love for Lindsay Lohan. If anyone has ever been to a taping of a show, stagehands simply tell the audience what to do, as many of already mentioned. As for "sources" saying she's being offered SEVERAL offers by late night talk shows, good freaken God gimme a break. She probably hijacked Leno's Stanley Steamer as she left the Burbank studio. Shouldn't she be signing up for her 400 plus hours of commuity service right about now?

LOL It seems to just kill the hardcore Lohan haters that she could get any type of positive response from anybody. Clue in, there is a whole world beyond the TMZ comment boards and not everyone hates this kid. I bet if you went out on the streets in any midwest city and asked random people if they hated Lindsay Lohan the answer for the most part would be either; No, why? or Who?

Oh, yeah, she's "in the clear now". What she is saying (IMO) is that she's not going to do the jail time. She will continue to use her resources to say a big FU to the system, and will drag this out for years. She absolutely refuses to own up to her actions, good or bad. She is living in a dreamworld called delusion and this appearance on Leno is her way of saying that she's Lindsay ****ing Lohan and can do whatever she wants.
Only problem....is that other people are living in this world and all but about 3-5 of those people are not simply extensions of her who live only to do her bidding.
Which means no matter how "focused" she is (as in focusing on her delusion that she doesn't deserve jail and is the object of a witch hunt) she will not be able to achieve what she has previously claimed she wanted.
Bet you she could lose her minor role in Gotti, if they can't find a director that is willing to work with her.

I guess MiLo called and begged Leno the way he did Letterman. We are sick and tired of having this lying, doping, thieving piece of insignificance shoved down our throats. while LA may be sucking up Leno tonight the rest of the country will be looking elsewhere.
Lohan is trash, not entertainment.

Lindsay's having her lawyer spend this week petitioning the court to allow Lindsay's assistant Elenor to come with her. Lindsay says she needs someone to pick up the trash and sweep and such while she gets her beauty sleep. She also wants to know if there are any 4 star hotels next to the Woman's place or the morgue, cuz she doesn't do mornings very well. She needs someplace nearby that she can crash in style once she's checked in for the day.

They also have a director telling them what to do.
The audience should get paid.

Lindsay on this "it isnt fair" campaign is going to backfire on her. The judge already reduced the charge, but Lindsay wants more.

She's telling the truth for once - she felt kind of numb after the judge threw the book at her because she had just snorted a line of coke at lunch.

@vinsetta.

If she's getting late night offers,(big if) it's so she can be satirized. Get it Linday?

pay scale for talk show 600- 1200............
can't go on ellen as it will reconfirm her lesbianism, can't do letterman since she did the no show, dave no like that.
who else is there? duh winning, leno
lohan did score two new roles on what turned out to be 'great friday' for lindsay lohan
#1 lindsay will play "morgue assistant, crime fighter"....in the role she will fight crime by telepathy as her gift is being able to touch corpses and know they are dead, some scene will include her searching the bathroom for clues to the crime, and hanging out in the men's room at chateau marmont to fight crime,
#2 she will be undercover agent at a tough innercity woman's shelter as a "mother teresa" type who councils and consoles wayward and down and out women, with her special talent of knowing where to 'touch them' she's booked solid for 400 hours of work............marc fiore the world famous producer with many credit to his name bringing mister stutterer to the big dvd screen said " I knew i was right in hiring lindsey lohan for a walk on bit part, since I don't have any financing, no director, and cant' get insurance, it was great lindsay negotiated her fee up to: a pack of marboros, a 6 pack of red bull, a half gallon of popov, and some blow (wink wink)
a source said "lindsay lohan is the modern day marilyn taylor"
the source also said " hey I've go another daughter that needs a job"..........
