Lindsay Lohan insists she wants to "prove herself".
The troubled actress - whose career has been plagued by addiction and run-ins with the law - says she has put the partying behind her and now wants to work on rebuilding her career.
She said: "I went out, actually, a few months ago with a friend. And I was so uncomfortable. Not because I felt tempted, just because it was just the same thing that it always was before. And it just wasn't fun for me. I've become more of a homebody. And I like that."
The 25-year-old Freaky Friday star - who has been in and out of jail and rehab since 2007 when she was arrested for drink driving and cocaine possession - is currently carrying out court-ordered community service at Los Angeles County morgue.
But having been dropped from movie projects in the past, Lindsay is seeking a fresh start and hopes her hosting slot on Saturday Night Live on March 1 and her role as the late Elizabeth Taylor in a forthcoming Lifetime film could herald a new beginning.
In an interview with NBC's 'Today', which will air tomorrow (01.03.12), she said: "I think I still need to go through the process of proving myself, you know, with SNL', being on time, being, you know, keeping my - can't say the word, but - stuff together."
She added: "I could see where it could be scary for people to invest in me. And I don't want people to have that reason to be scared anymore.
"Being able to have this opportunity with 'SNL' and the film, I'm going to do what I'm supposed to do, and enjoy doing it, and do it as best as I can."
