Ahead of her three-month rehab lockdown, Lindsay Lohan met Piers Morgan for the first time.
The British CNN anchor, known for his forward interviewing style, grilled Lohan, 26, on everything from her family life to her sexual orientation, but, most notably, Morgan asked the embattled actress about her substance abuse issues.
The hard-hitting exchange, transcribed by Morgan and posted to the Daily Mail's website, reveals the "Mean Girls" actress is strongly in denial about her drug and alcohol use.
When bluntly asked how many times she's done cocaine, Lohan explained that she isn't as bad as people think.
"Everyone thinks I've done it so many times," said Lohan. "But I've only done it maybe four or five times in my life. I don't like it. It reminds me of my dad. I took it four times in a period from about the age of 20 to 23, and I got caught twice.
"I've never taken heroin either, never injected myself with anything, never done LSD," she added. "Those things all scare me."
Lohan admits to having smoked marijuana on occasion, but revealed her personal preference was Ecstasy.
"I liked that better than the others," she said.
The "Liz & Dick" actress explained she's "never been a huge drinker," despite her two arrests for driving under the influence and subsequent stints in rehabilitation and Alcoholics Anonymous.
She also thinks rehab is "pointless" because she doesn't have a problem, she said.
"I don't think I need to be on lockdown for three months. I don't think that's rehab," Lohan explained.
"I've been court-ordered to do it six times. I could write the book on rehab. Constantly sending me to rehab is pointless."
Now, officially checked in at California's Betty Ford Center, Lohan told Morgan that she hopes to come back afterward "fully focused on work."
"I look at it as a good thing," she said. " I can come back afterwards and be fully focused on work. But I think there are other things I could do instead of going to a rehab center that would benefit me more. The best thing they could do for me would be to make me go abroad to different countries and work with children."
