Lindsay Lohan Does the Tonight Show with Jay Leno - Video

Lindsay Lohan appeared on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno Tuesday night.

It’s her first appearance on TV since she was sentenced to 120 days in jail for violating her probation.

Jay Leno seemed to be an overall supporter of the troubled actress, at times sounding more like her father than a talk show host and comedian.

They talked about her upcoming role in the new Gotti movie where she will play the wife of Gotti Jr. The movie will also star John Travolta and Joe Pesci.

When talk of her recent troubles came up she said she realizes she has made a lot of poor decisions and knows she has to work to gain back the trust she has lost with the industry.

They also talked about Lindsay’s time in jail – and the most recent sentence of 4 months plus community service at the county morgue and a battered women’s facility.

One little “Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon” moment happened when it was revealed that Lohan’s lawyer, Shawn Chapman Holley, is the wife of the lead singer in Jay’s Tonight Show band.

The audience erupted into applause when Leno asked if she thought her fans still supported her, and she got a standing ovation when she left the stage.
