'Painful' Lindsay Lohan Interview Resurfaces As David Letterman Asks Actor About Rehab

A shocking Lindsay Lohan interview from 2013 has resurfaced and viewers are taken aback by the way host David Letterman treated the actor.

"Aren't you supposed to be in rehab?" Letterman asks her in the clip, as Lindsay (who was 26 at the time) becomes visibly uncomfortable.

He continued: "What are they rehabing? What is on their list? What are they going to work on when you walk through the door?"

Fed up with Letterman's relentless prodding, Lindsay eventually hits back: "You can't make a joke of it. That's so mean."

"You can't do that, it's my show now," she said.


Some viewers were a bit disturbed with the way Letterman was talking to her.

One user wrote: "He should've been fired for that."

A second added: "She's visibly uncomfortable. She should've got up and walked out but then she would've been cancelled for that."

While a third said: "That was SO painful to watch."


A final user concluded: "She knew she couldn't get combative because that's exactly what they wanted to see."

The resurfaced footage went viral on TikTok, racking up 4 million views and 1.4 million likes.

Paris Hilton said earlier this year that she felt 'purposefully humiliated' by Letterman during a 2007 interview.

While Hilton went on the show to discuss her new movie, Letterman immediately went in on her 45-day jail sentence (of which she only served 23 days) for violating her probation by driving without a valid licence.


He asked: "Looking back on that experience, what have you learned? What's different about you?"

Hilton, who looked nervous, replied: "Obviously it was a very traumatic experience, but I did it, so I feel like I can do anything."

Nevertheless, Letterman continued, saying: "I suppose the food was awful. Did you have three meals a day?


"Did you start with breakfast? What would the breakfast be?

"Lunch? Is there a mid-afternoon snack? Do you go right to dinner? Are you eating alone in your cell or was it a common dining area?

"What was dinner usually?"

Hilton said she didn't want to talk about it any further, but the host persisted, arguing she could be a role model for kids who see a celebrity facing the same consequences as anybody else.

Hilton told E! News: "I was just getting so uncomfortable and I was so upset. Just being up there, it was like he was purposefully trying to humiliate me."
