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.

Standing ovation for what? Being a criminal? This is why America is in the ****ter, because people show respect for people like this piece of garbage.
Leno is a hack and I'd expect nothing less from him to treat a criminal drug addict in this manner.
It will be very amusing when she gets booted off the Gotti project for one reason or another, her jail time, or her difficult ways because she has these delusions that she's still a huge star.

She better stop burning her bridges, you have to promote your projects as an actor and you will one day need to appear on all those talk shows so you need to shut your trap you idiot.

Leno set her up so the whole world can laugh at her. Get a clue Lindsay, take care of yourself for once and stop letting people make a fool of you.

Disney wants her for a live-action Donald Duck feature. She's already got the lips for the part.

LOL The judge did not "throw the book" at her. She is crazy and why is a criminal hasbeen getting a standing ovation? The public cant stand her I am sure they stood up because the light up sign for the audience to read said "stand up and clap". I know, I have been to talk shows thats what happens, they tell you when to clap and stand.

Good for her. It's been said many times that the public is forgiving and loves a comeback story. Many people are still rooting for her to work everything out and get back to making movies. Hopefully she's finally in the right place to start putting all this behind her and start putting her life back together.
