Lohan Dodges Substance Abuse Questions

This morning on The Today Show Matt Lauer tried to drill LL on her Vanity Fair article and her disappointment with what was written. He brought up "substance abuse" and she acted all confused and tried to change the topic to eating disorders. In fact, she was shocked with the drug question and you could tell she was taken off guard and trying to blow it off.

Thanks to Gawker for the transcript and description below and if you are not on a mac you can actually watch the clip here.

Lauer: You weren’t happy with the Vanity Fair article that came out, and you released a statement saying that some of your words had been misconstrued. So let me just ask the blunt question: No problems in your life right now, in terms of substance or anything? You’re fine?

Lohan: [Shakes head, looks exasperated and then genuinely perplexed] Substance abuse — I don’t believe that was brought up. [Audible sniffing begins here.]

Lauer: Well, just talked about some experimentation with drugs and things like that.

[Lohan sighs, waves this away as if it were ridiculous.]

Lauer:You’re OK?

Lohan: [Eyes roll] Yeah, everything’s fine. Vanity Fair, you know — the great thing that came out of that with the whole eating disorder issue [eyes roll] was it gave younger girls, I think, any younger girl who picked it up, they can go to their parents and talk to them about it and know that it’s better to be verbal and talk to people if you have any sort of problem, whatever it may be. And that it’s not worth it. [Makes serious face. She wants you to get help.]
