Lindsay Lohan went to prison for all of two weeks back in 2010, getting out early despite her 90-day sentence due to overcrowding in the California prison system. But before anyone thinks she was having a grand old time, living it up with her fellow high-brow criminal offenders, think again: Lindsay has revealed that she spent the whole time in solitary confinement… and actually kinda liked it.
From The Daily Mail:
The actress told Jonathan Ross on his chat show that her fourteen days in solitary confinement was was an extreme sentence for the charge she was put away on.
‘Solitary confinement is actually very different, you leave your cell for one hour a day and you don’t go outside,’ Lindsay, 28, explains during Saturday night’s episode.
‘I don’t think anyone knows that but the other girls in the other cells were in there for murder… They [the Prison Officers] said it was for “safety purposes”, I said, “what am I going to do?”
‘I made a mistake, I went to a club and then I drank and I drove home and that’s not the right thing to do but to put someone in that position, it was very scary, it was very jarring.’
‘The weirdest part for me was I finally had silence in my life,’ Lindsay recalled. ‘As terrified as I was and as scared as I was, I finally felt like I didn’t have to answer to anyone and I didn’t have to do anything for anyone. That was the weirdest part of it.’
When Jonathan asked if perhaps it was a good thing for her in that case, Lindsay said, ‘Two days would have been enough.’
Huh. Well, it’s a miracle that she’s stayed out of prison for the past 4 years, but I doubt it’s the last she’ll see of the inside of a cell, unfortunately. She looks well, though. I’m just skeptical to believe that she’s actually going to be able to hold it together for any amount of time, unfortunately.
