Sometimes getting where you need to go in life requires swallowing your pride. It seems like Lindsay Lohan had to do just that in order to get on "Saturday Night Live" this weekend.

"I was calling Lorne [Michaels,” she told Jimmy Fallon on his show last night. “I kept asking and kind of, not harassing him, but I wasn't giving up."

All that haranguing paid off though. She bumped into Michaels in Los Angeles and he offered her the gig on the spot.

“You know Lorne, he’s very straight to the point,” she said. “He was like, ‘What about March 3?’ I’m like, ‘I’m free!’”
