In anticipation of her three-month stint in a lockdown rehab facility, Lindsay Lohan revealed everything -- about her sexuality, drug and alcohol abuse, rehab and volatile family life -- in one of her most candid interviews ever.

The actress, 26, sat down with CNN's Piers Morgan for an interview with The Daily Mail, where she opened up about her many troubles while living in the public eye.

The sit-down, conducted nearly a month ago, shed some light into Lohan's frame of mind, veering from introspection to delusion, oftentimes within the same sentence.

Here are some of the highlights:

On her reported drug abuse, specifically cocaine: "Everyone thinks I've done it so many times," said Lohan. "But I've only done it maybe four or five times in my life. I don't like it. It reminds me of my dad. I took it four times in a period from about the age of 20 to 23, and I got caught twice. I've never taken heroin either, never injected myself with anything, never done LSD," she added. "Those things all scare me."

Other drugs she's tried: "[I've used] pot, obviously. And ecstasy. I liked that better than the others," she said. "I didn't drink on it, so I was just chilling. It's something that a lot of people experience when they're in college. I just should have known that being in the public eye, someone was bound to say something or try to make some money off it."

If she thinks rehab will work for her: “I’ve been court-ordered to do [rehab] six times. I could write the book on rehab. Constantly sending me to rehab is pointless. The first few times I was court-ordered to rehab it was like a joke, like killing time."

What she thinks would work better than rehab: "I think there are other things I could do instead of going to a rehab center that would benefit me more. The best thing they could do for me would be to make me go abroad to different countries and work with children."

On her sexuality: "I know I'm straight. I have made out with girls before, and I had a relationship with a girl. But I think I needed to experience that and I think I was looking for something different."

On her relationship with Samantha Ronson: “There’s something just different about it with a woman. When I was with Samantha, I didn’t want to leave, because I didn’t want to be alone. It was very toxic. And her family controlled anything she did.”

On her volatile family life, specifically her relationship with father Michael Lohan: “He won’t change. I just think there comes a point where you just kind of have to accept what it is. Whenever I do try to bring him back into my life, he creates chaos for me and uses it to his advantage. He’s been really good and then really crazy my whole life.”

The unhappiest she's ever been: "The day I had to turn myself in to jail, and I had to see my mum’s face. I spent 12 days inside and I felt utter shock and cried for four days straight.”
