Lindsay Lohan has admitted she made poor decisions in the past, but insists she's ready to deal with the consequences.

Appearing on the Tonight Show on US TV, the Mean Girls actress said she was shocked by last week's court ruling sentencing her to jail. But when asked by host Jay Leno if her treatment was fair or unfair, Lindsay said she was "treated the way I should be treated".

"I'm a big girl," the 24-year-old said, "and I'm gonna do what I'm told to do."

On Friday, Lindsay was sentenced to 120 days in jail for violating her probation by taking a designer necklace. The troubled actress' attorneys appealed the sentence and she was freed on bond after a few hours behind bars.

She told the Tonight audience she is playing the wife of John Gotti Jr in the crime family movie, Gotti: Three Generations. Her casting in the role was announced last week but it was unclear whether her legal woes might affect it.

Lindsay said she had "let a lot of my fans down by putting myself in situations when I was young and wasn't thinking clearly," but expressed hope she could get her acting career back on track.

"As long as I stay focused, then I will be able to achieve what I want to achieve," she said.

Asked by Leno where she saw herself by the time she was 30, she replied: "Hopefully sitting here after I've won an Oscar. That would be ideal."
