Following appearances on “Good Morning America” and “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon,” Lindsay Lohan continued to hit the media circuit with a stop at “The Tonight Show,” where she opened up about canceling on Barbara Walters and her latest movie, “Liz & Dick.”

Lohan’s “Tonight Show” appearance came days after she backed out from a scheduled interview with “20/20’s” Barbara Walters, a move that irked the veteran journalist.

“You canceled Barbara Walters, and Barbara looked a little … upset,” host Jay Leno observed. “So what happened there?”

The actress, whose actions of late have landed her on numerous tabloids, said the timing for the interview just “wasn’t right, right now.”

“I love her, I’m a big fan of Barbara Walters,” Lohan said. “So when it’s right, she knows she’ll be the first person I sit down with.”

During the wide-ranging interview, which managed to incorporate Tim Tebow, Thanksgiving traditions and Lohan’s half-sister, the actress spoke candidly about her life in the limelight, stating she “never” regrets entering showbiz at the tender age of three.

“I love doing it, it makes me happy,” Lohan said. “I think I had to step back and take myself out of everything and kind of get my head straight … you get caught up in everything, it’s important to kind of find yourself.”

The “Mean Girls” star also touched on her latest movie, Lifetime's Elizabeth Taylor biopic “Liz & Dick,” and how she went about preparing for her role. Lohan confided to Leno that she “became good friends” with Taylor’s nurse, who eagerly shared little anecdotes about the big screen star.

“It was nice to kind of have the inside things that I didn’t know about Elizabeth,” Lohan gushed. “When she was home in bed she would karaoke sometimes to [radio station] 103.1!”
