Standing ovation for Lindsay Lohan

Lindsay Lohan apparently received a standing ovation from the crowd after a candid interview on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno.

In an appearance taped to air on the US talk show tonight (Tuesday), the host asked the troubled actress about touchy subjects including her court appearance and brief jailing, her family and what she's learned from her experiences.

The Mean Girls actress is a late addition to the show, knocking a scheduled guest, Broadway and Glee star Kristin Chenoweth, to another date.

The 24-year-old also talked about 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 if her legal woes might affect it.

A Los Angeles judge sentenced Lindsay to 120 days for violating her probation by taking a designer necklace, a charge the judge reduced from felony grand theft to a misdemeanour. The actress's lawyers appealed the jail sentence, Lindsay's fourth, and she was freed on bond after a few hours behind bars.

Lilo apparently told Leno she found the sentence "shocking" and said it her left her "kind of numb".
