Lindsay Lohan has spoken out about cancelling her interview with Barbara Walters.

The 26-year-old actress angered the talk show legend by turning down an appearance on 'The View' in favour of Jay Leno's chat show, but now claims she is a massive fan and would be willing to appear on her show when the time is ''right''.

Speaking to Jay on 'The Tonight Show', Lindsay confessed: ''Well, sort of. The timing wasn't right right now. I love her. I'm a big fan of Barbara Walters. I met her when I was very young. And so, when it's right, she knows she'll be the first person I sit down with.''

Barbara was very vocal about her annoyance at Lindsay's decision as she has known her since childhood and had been promised exclusive interviews by the starlet herself.

Ranting on 'The View', she said: ''[I was told] 'Lindsay doesn't feel up to it.' Well, I mean, she has a lot of problems, and it was just one more. I said, 'Poor girl, I hope when she feels like it, she will do it with us.'

''I spent a lot of time, doing a lot of homework, watching the actual movie. . . and then her longtime press agent resigned. That should have been a clue.''

Lindsay's new PR team is thought to have been worried Barbara would ask her tricky questions about her recent troubles, including the discovery of her illegitimate half-sister and pending legal issues.

Lindsay's new Lifetime biopic 'Liz & Dick' has been panned by critics.
