A very level-headed Lindsay Lohan stopped by to chat with Jay Leno last night,  after a judge sentenced her to 480 hours of community service for allegedly stealing a necklace from an L.A. jewelry store, and violating the terms of her probation. Booed by a few people when she was first introduced, the contrite actress quickly won the crowd over, eventually receiving a standing ovation. The star talked candidly about her previous time in jail, her rocky relationship with her father and her shocked reaction to her sentence. But she also accepted responsibility for her actions. "At 24 I'm not a kid anymore,” she told the lantern-jawed talk show host. "I've made a lot of stupid decisions in my life. All I want to do is overcome this public misconception of me." Lohan was released from a long stint at Betty Ford several weeks ago. Since then, she's gotten into trouble again for allegedly heisting a necklace from a Venice Beach jewelry store. As penance for her crimes, Lohan was recently sentenced by an LA County judge to "120 days in jail, 360 hours of service at Women's Center on L.A.'s skid row and 120 hours at the the city's coroner's office." The judge also reduced the theft charge from a felony to a misdemeanor. Though the actress is appealing the sentence, she's obliged to start her community service hours within a week and finish them within a year. The big question: What will she wear?
