The anticipated Lindsay Lohan interview aired on Thursday on the Today show, and the actress, who has been plagued with legal problems for the past couple of years, is serious about getting back into what she’s famous for in the first place – acting.

Lohan has been more known for her personal turmoil than her acting career, so this weekend’s Saturday Night Live appearance should be one of the first to get her back on track.

“I regret the choices that I’ve made, but I’m grateful for where I am today, because of them,” she told Lauer, ABC News reports. “I don’t need to see any more negative stuff. I don’t needs to put myself in those places any more.”

She continued about her negative image, “If I harped on that and only focused on the negative and the people that doubted me, then I might be right back where they think I’ll be,” she said.

Instead, she’s adamant, “I want to move forward with my life … I want to keep growing and I want to keep growing in the right ways.”

In five years, Lohan said she hope she would “just come from the Oscars this past weekend,” adding, “I want to get back to acting.”

MSNBC reports that while the actress is arguably making a comeback at the age of 25, she explains "I'd rather it be now and not have to deal with it -- go through it later.”

Calling her community service work at the L.A. County Morgue “humbling,” Lohan also wants to “keep growing in the right ways.”
