Lindsay Lohan's family keep her sane.

The troubled actress - who has endured a string of legal problems and could soon face jail for violating her probation amid claims she lied over a car accident - is thankful for the support she receives from her mother Dina and siblings Michael Jr., 25, Ali, 19, and Cody, 16.

Asked what is helping her through her problems, Lohan told E! News: "Family. You can't get through anything without the family. Family is everything."

The Liz & Dick star recently admitted she has only just realised how much she enjoys working, and she is only just learning to adapt to having downtime.

Speaking about working on upcoming erotic thriller The Canyons, she said: "I needed time to figure out all the c**p in my life that I'd created for myself, essentially, and I kind of realised, 'What am I doing? I like doing this. I like being here. This makes me happy.'

"There was a line in the Elizabeth [Taylor] movie where she says, 'I'm so bored, I've never been taught what to do when I'm not working,' and I'm kind of figuring that out now."

The star recently moved in with her mother in New York. A source close to the 26-year-old told gossip website that she is now "flat-out broke" and can't afford to rent an apartment on her own in Los Angeles.

The insider said: "Lindsay is being forced to live at home with Dina because she can't afford any other options at the moment.

"Lindsay is flat-out broke and can't even afford to rent a two-bedroom apartment in North Hollywood. There's simply no way she would pass a credit check right now, and even if she could she wouldn't be able to muster up a security deposit, let alone meet the rent every month.

"Lindsay's been telling everyone that she moved to New York because she was sick of Los Angeles. But that's just not true, she would love to move back west, but she can't afford to.

The source also claims that Lindsay is struggling to cope living in such close quarters with her mother again, saying: "Dina seriously cramps Lindsay's style because she always wants to go out partying with her.
