Lohan made her return to SNL over the weekend and openly mocked her past troubles in her monologue, where she received a mock pat-down by Kristen Wiig.
Killam told reporters on Sunday (March 4) at the Secret Policeman's Ball in New York City that Lohan was very easy to work with during her week at Saturday Night Live.
"She was fantastic and really a good sport... She let us go there, and we tried to handle it as gently as possible," Killam said, reports People.
The comic went on to say he admired Lohan's willingness to poke fun at her rehab stint and legal woes.
"She was the one who was, like, 'Go to town'," Killam revealed. "She really wants to turn it around, and she was great. I was surprised. She was a real trooper."
Moynihan - who co-starred with Lohan in a 'Scared Straight' sketch - added that he was similarly impressed by Lohan's first appearance on SNL in six years.
"She really wanted to do a good job, and I think she did it," Moynihan insisted. "She was super nice, very calm and normal."
Lohan's latest SNL appearance puts her in the company of fellow four-time hosts Dana Carvey, Ashton Kutcher and Ben Affleck.
Jonah Hill and musical guests The Shins star on this weekend's Saturday Night Live, airing at 11.30/10.30c.
