Lindsay Lohan on New Liz Taylor Role: I'm "Only Going Up, Up, Up from Here"

The actress, who received an exemplary review at a probation hearing Wednesday, tweets with fans about her big acting comeback

Lindsay Lohan: Troubled Starlet is so five minutes ago. We are now living in the era of Lindsay Lohan: Comeback Kid. After having her share of ups and downs and legal woes over the past couple of years, the 25-year-old has booked two big TV jobs in one week. First, she landed a hosting gig on Saturday Night Live's March 3 episode, and now, according to Access Hollywood, she's nailed down the much-sought-after role of Elizabeth Taylor in the Lifetime movie Liz and Dick. 

So how is Lohan planning to make sure nothing goes wrong this time around? According to Lohan: by staying "focused."

The Machete star took to her Twitter account Tuesday night to chat with some of her fans. She responded with enthusiasm and grace -- even to her haters -- and showed that she actually might be ready to start her long-anticipated comeback.

One fan wrote that Lohan had been his childhood crush, and he doesn't care what people think about that.

"Omg! really? that's so cool hahaha thank you xoxo," Lohan responded. "sorry for the ups and downs... only going up up up from here!"

Another fan wrote to say, "Congrats Lindsay on SNL and the Liz role." And Lohan replied, "Thank You So Much!"

Other fans expressed their love for the former child star, to which she answered, "I'm a tough cookie! a focused tough cookie! :)"

Lohan explained that she is "only on (Twitter) for quick moments at a time" because she has been busy completing her community service.

And, thanks to the exemplary review she received during a court hearing Wednesday, she is very close to officially putting her legal problems behind her. "You're in the home stretch," Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Stephanie Sautner told the actress, referring to Lohan's probation stemming from a 2007 DUI case and her 2011 necklace theft case. "You seem to be getting your life back on track."

We'd certainly say so: Lohan now has just 14 days of community service at the Los Angeles County morgue and five therapy sessions left before she fulfills the requirements of her probation. She is due back in court March 29 for what could be her final hearing. Keep up the good work, LiLo!
