Lindsay Lohan stopped by Jay Leno‘s “Tonight Show” yesterday for a pre-taped interview that will be airing this evening. She received a standing ovation from the audience when she walked in. In the interview, a very mature sounding Lohan speaks very positively about her currently situation and future outlook:

“I think that when, ya know, being young and being in a position that I was in, you don’t really take the time to appreciate what you have. It’s all kind of a whirlwind and people make decisions for you, but I’m not a kid anymore, I’m 24…. I’ve made a lot of mistakes and I recognize that. But I’m in the clear now and I feel like as long as I stay focused the I will be able to achieve what I want to achieve.”

You hear that? Apparently, she’s in the clear now. Lindsay chose to do her interview with Leno because she was appreciative of how he had treated her over the years, in comparison to some of the others. Aside from the personal drama in her life, Lohan also talks about the acting kind and reconfirms that she is going to be playing the role of John Gotti Jr.’s wife in the movie.

The full interview will be on The Tonight show…well, tonight at 11:35 p.m. ET.
