Exclusive: Lindsay Lohan's First and Only Interview
In her first interview since leaving rehab, actress Lindsay Lohan breaks her silence and tells "Extra's" Jerry Penacoli about her days in treatment, her fears for the future -- and offers a look inside her new life.

Lohan invited "Extra" inside her new home in Los Angeles for a deeply personal and revealing conversation.
Penacoli asked Lohan how she was feeling. "I feel great. I feel happy," the actress smiled. "There's always things, you know, bumps we have in the road and as long as I am focusing on the one thing I need to put first in my life, which is my recovery and stuff, and I'm doing good and that's most important for me."
Lindsay continued, saying the one thing she has missed most is working. "I miss being on set. I really do miss it. I know there's going to be a lot of steps I'll have to go through to prove myself again and get the trust from people I respect to work with, but I'm willing to do what I have to do to get there because that's my passion."
What does she want to do when she's ready to return to work? "Great films, tell great stories. That's what I aspired to do my whole life, and personal instances in my life have gotten in the way. But I don't want that to be what I am known for, the tabloid stuff, that's not me. I don't like the attention. I don't want my attention to come through my films and the work I am doing, not from going to the hair salon."
Lindsay admitted that to achieve her goal, she is going to have to take it "one day at a time."
