The controversial actress credited Oprah Winfrey for helping her start fresh, saying, "I have a really strong bond with her," after they filmed a docu-series for OWN together.

Has Lindsay Lohan undergone a lifestyle transformation? 

The 27-year-old actress looked clean-cut and angelic when she appeared on The Tonight Show on Thursday, telling Jimmy Fallon that her brushes with the law were a thing of the past.

Wearing a pale primly buttoned-blouse and her hair back to its natural rich red shade, Lohan credited working with Oprah Winfrey on an upcoming docu-series for the OWN channel for aiding her road to recovery.

Aptly-titled Lindsay, the eight-episode series debuts on March 9 but its star said she hasn't watched it yet. "I have seen nothing," she told Fallon. "It is really interesting as I kept hearing my name [on trailers] and I get really uncomfortable with it."

"It is a television show so they want ratings -- they picked the first two months after I got back to New York after I had been in treatment," she went on to explain about the show, which follows her life after a string of public dramas. 

"I became really spiritual over this past year and I have been trying to find peace and serenity in my life. So of course they take the chaos of me moving after eight years of living in L.A. back to the city of New York," she revealed. "So, it's like 'Oprah reprimands Lindsay!'"

"I think your dad [Michael Lohan] comes off really smart," said Fallon amicably. "What we know is what we read in the magazines and see from paparazzi and the red carpet ... going to court -- we put two and two together in our heads and don't know what to do," he said of his guest's tarnished reputation.

As for the repeated bad behavior that has landed her in court, behind bars and in rehab over recent years, Lohan claimed, "That is the past. I feel really lucky to be able to work with someone like Oprah and create. I have a really strong bond with her where I can call her for advice and she has become someone I can learn from in life," she said, admitting there has even been the odd "butt dial" to O!

With her fresh new look and healthy attitude, Lindsay was reminiscent of the talented star of Mean Girls, and said she would definitely consider doing a reunion.

"I saw Tina [Fey] and she mentioned doing a reunion. She said she was talking to Lorne [Michaels] about it. She's talking to the big boss."

First, Lindsay will be heading back to L.A. to start filming Inconceivable in April, and will appear in the April 14 episode of 2 Broke Girls on CBS. 

After tackling some serious life issues, Fallon and Lohan embarked on an all out "water war," which she admitted was far wetter than she anticipated. "I didn't realize there is as much water as there is in this game," she said.
