Lindsay Lohan has been forthcoming about her struggles with alcohol and drugs, but she insists her time on acting sets has always remained booze-free. "Elizabeth (Taylor) was drunk on sets," says Lohan, who plays Taylor in the upcoming Lifetime movie Liz and Dick, which premieres on Sunday. "I've never been drunk on set, ever. I did my time I respect the law." The tabloid fixture even says that her time in jail was the inspiration to straighten her life out: "as hard as it was for me to admit it when I was in denial, it was a blessing in disguise." She was initially sentenced to 90 days in jail back in July 2010 for a probation violation in her DUI case, but stayed for under two weeks due to overcrowding. "Marilyn Monroe went to an institution and said, 'I may not belong here like the world thinks I do, but I might as well take what I can get here and use it and help other people,'" says Lohan. "I think that’s what everyone should take from those experiences." The troubled star is once again facing significant jail time after violating the terms of her probation last June, when she lied to cops about being behind the wheel during a traffic accident. The judge in the case is expected to revoke her probation as early as next week and may send her to jail.
