In an interview on NBC's "The Tonight Show," the actress says her legal woes won't affect her role in the new Gotti movie.

Lindsay Lohan pre-taped an appearance on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno on Monday. It will air Tuesday.

The actress says she is still set to play John Gotti Jr.'s wife, Kim, despite her legal woes. On Friday, she was sentenced to 120 days in jail and 480 hours of community service for violating probation by allegedly swiping a necklace from a Venice, Calif. jewelry shop.

She said she thought the sentence was "shocking" and it left her "kind of numb," according to the Associated Press.

She received a standing ovation from the studio audience.

She also allegedly knocked off a scheduled guest, Broadway star Kristin Chenoweth, to another show.
