In an interview on NBC's "The Tonight Show," the actress says she's "dealing with the consequences" of her mistakes.

Lindsay Lohan says she's made poor decisions in the past, but insists she's ready to deal with the consequences.

Appearing on NBC's Tonight Show With Jay Leno on Tuesday, the troubled actress acknowledged feeling shock at last week's ruling by a Los Angeles judge that sentenced her to jail. But when asked by host Jay Leno if her treatment was fair or unfair, Lohan said she was "treated the way I should be treated."

"I'm a big girl," the 24-year-old Lohan said, "and I'm gonna do what I'm told to do."

Leno also asked about her new role as John Gotti's daughter-in-law in an upcoming movie.

"This is the first really good news you've had in a while, isn't it?" Leno asked, per Gawker. "Were you worried that a lot of these phone calls were not gonna happen, that people were not gonna be calling you as much, that some of these roles might not come around?"

"I've, um, I've made a lot of poor decisions in the past, and I'm dealing with the consequences of those decisions," Lohan responded.

On Friday, Lohan was sentenced to 120 days in jail for violating her probation by taking a designer necklace. The actress's attorneys appealed the sentence. Lohan was freed on bond after a few hours behind bars.

Her Tonight Show interview had been taped Monday.
