Oprah asks Lindsay Lohan: 'Are you an addict?'

Oprah Winfrey doesn't mess around in her upcoming interview with troubled actress Lindsay Lohan. "Are you an addict?" Winfrey asks "The Canyons" star in a teaser from their upcoming chat on "Oprah's Next Chapter."

First Look: Lindsay Lohan on Oprah's Next Chapter

Viewers aren't shown Lohan's response, but Winfrey is really just warming up.

"What does it feel like to be both an adjective and a verb for 'child star gone wrong'?" Winfrey is then seen to ask.

Again, there's no response shown from Lohan — but that's what makes the clip a "teaser." Winfrey and crew are hoping curious fans will tune in to "Oprah's Next Chapter" on Aug. 18 at 9 p.m. on the talk-show host's OWN channel and find out how the actress responds.

The OWN network also is preparing an eight-episode documentary series about Lohan's life after she left a Malibu, Calif., rehab center in July. That series will air sometime in 2014.
