Lindsay Lohan At amFar Gala: Actress Reveals What Keeps Her Sane (PHOTOS)

Lindsay Lohan made a surprise appearance at the 2013 amfAR Gala in New York on Wednesday night, and despite the turmoil she's gone through in the last few months years, the starlet looked fairly put-together in her Roberto Cavalli gown.

Of course, looking good and doing well are two totally different things, but the perpetually troubled 26-year-old actress revealed what keeps her sane in these troubled times better known as her life.

"Family," Lohan told E! News. "You can't get through anything without the family. Family is everything."

Really, Lindsay? Are you talking about your family?

We're not sure if she's talking about her father, who runs his mouth off to TMZ at every opportunity, or her mother, with whom she got in such a fight last year that she called her father claiming that her mom was doing cocaine and was overheard screaming at her mother, "This is what you do. You ruin people."

Chalk that up to just another night with the Lohan family, because Lindsay later admitted she had been lying when she called her father to say her mom was on drugs. Good thing Dina Lohan doesn't hold a grudge, since Lindsay is reportedly so broke that she's had to move back in with her mom.

Between her legal bills, unpaid taxes, and the fact that she's not making $7 million per film anymore (Lohan was actually paid $100 for each day she worked on her latest film "The Canyons,"), so it's no wonder that Lindsay was struggling to pay the rent on her $8,000 a month Beverly Hills home.

A source told the New York Daily News that Lohan has been using her mother's house as her home base for the last three months, and though Dina is happy to have her back so she can keep a better eye on her, the actress isn't thrilled to be living in her teenage bedroom on Long Island.

While Lindsay may claim her family keeps her sane, the source also revealed that Lohan had been fighting to stay on her own, and even tried to work out a deal with Donald Trump for an apartment, which fell through when the Donald wouldn't give her a break on the rent.
