Oprah Winfrey is still a proud Lindsay Lohan supporter!

The talk show queen and beloved personality flew to London this weekend to see the one and only Lohan in her new production.

"@LindsayLohan backstage at her new play in London. #SpeedthePlow," Oprah wrote on Instagram while sharing a smile with the actress.

Lohan added, "So thrilled to have @Oprah and @Lupita_Nyongo in the audience tonight. I'm a lucky girl! XXo #Myfairygodmother."

Lohan has been hard at work while starring in David Mamet's play Speed-the-Plow alongside Richard Schiff. The popular production is a satirical dissection of the American movie business and features three different acts.

Lohan has been starring in the play since Sept. 24 and the initials reviews aren't bad at all.

"On the first night of previews, a work-in-progress feel is to be expected," one review said. "Lohan remained charming throughout."

Oprah's arrival proves that she still has faith in a woman who opened her life up to cameras on the Oprah Winfrey Network docu-series, Lindsay.

During the show's eight episodes, Lohan allowed cameras to follow her journey, which included a stressful move to New York City, several business meetings and even a shocking confession that she miscarried during the series.


Although she admitted to a few "bumpety-bumps" during filming, Winfrey remained positive about Lohan.

"I think she's doing really okay," Winfrey told David Letterman during a surprise phone call. "I think, you know, to have cameras following you around for every phase of your life, and you are trying to pull your life together, I think that's a really difficult thing, so yeah, we're really pleased she's making some progress."

Although the future of Lindsay remains up in the air, the star remains focused on maintaining a healthy and busy lifestyle.

"Every night feels more natural and comfortable," she recently told The Mirror. "Everyone has been really great. I love the stage manager...they've all been kind, gracious and comforting."
