Troubled actress Lindsay Lohan can count a Tonight Show studio audience among her boosters.
In an appearance taped to air on the talk show last night, Lohan received a standing ovation from the crowd, according to a person connected with the show.
Tonight Show 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.
The Mean Girls actress was a late addition to last night’s show, knocking a scheduled guest, Broadway star Kristin Chenoweth, to another date.
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.
