Lindsay Lohan reveals the 'worst mistake' she's made in her career

Lindsay Lohan was fairly candid when she visited Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen.

Despite being a very successful young actress, Lindsay struggled with drug and alcohol addiction.  Host Andy Cohen asked Lohan, " What do you think has been the worst mistake you've made in your career?" To which she quickly replied, "Drinking and driving."

In May of 2007, Lohan was charged with a DUI and possession of cocaine after wrecking her car in Beverly Hills.
