Lindsay Lohan called her 120-day jail sentence “shocking” and said it left her “kind of numb” when she sat down with Jay Leno for a surprise appearance on the “Tonight Show” scheduled to air tonight. Lohan was greeted with a standing ovation as she walked on to the set to discuss her recent legal troubles.

“At what point did you realize, ‘Oh my God, I could lose this, this could slip away from me?'” Leno asked the starlet. “I think that when, you know, being young and being in the position I was in, you don’t really take the time to appreciate what you have and it’s all kind of a whirlwind, and people make decisions for you,” she replied. “But I’m not a kid anymore–I’m 24. I’ve made a lot of mistakes and I recognize that. I’m in the clear now, and as long as I stay focused, I can achieve what I want to achieve.”

Lohan was sentenced to 120 days in jail after she was charged with a probation violation for allegedly stealing a $2,500 necklace from a Venice jewelry store. Lohan’s attorney, Shawn Chapman Holley, appealed the decision, which allowed the actress to post bail and be released three hours later.
