The interview by chat show queen Oprah for Oprah's Next Chapter is the first of the actress since she left rehab. It promises to be a glimpse into the actress's battle with addiction and her road to recovery and will be aired on 18 August.
In the exclusive chat, Oprah asks Lindsay hard-hitting questions such as "Are you an addict?" and "What does it feel like to be both an adjective and a verb for child-star-gone-wrong?"
The Mean Girls star sits across from the talk show presenter wearing a bright orange frock with her hair pulled back into a pony tail.
The interview comes as part of a documentary about the 27-year-old’s life, being produced by Oprah Winfrey's OWN network.
The eight-part series will document the actress' efforts to remain healthy and her acting comeback following her three-month rehab stay.
As part of the deal, Lindsay did a guest-hosting stint on Chelsea Lately which is set to air on Monday.
A source told E! News, "She is taking this really serious. She wants people to know the days of her clubbing and partying are over and she is a new girl."
The young actress was first ordered into rehab as part of her plea deal for reckless driving and giving false information to police about her involvement in a car crash in June 2012.
She spent the first part of her treatment at the Betty Ford Center in California, but requested a transfer halfway through the process. She then went on to complete the rest of the court-ordered rehab in the Cliffside Malibu Rehab Center in California.
This is not the first time that Lindsay has been admitted into rehab and has also been sentenced to jail before. In 2011 she was given 30-days in a Los Angeles County prison but served less than five hours due to overcrowding in the jail.
