Lindsay Lohan (born 2.7.1986) is an American actress, singer and model. She rose to fame with the 1998 Disney remake of The Parent Trap but in latter years, has become renowned for her controversial off-screen antics, which have landed her in trouble with the law.
Childhood: Lohan was born in New York City, to Donata and Michael Lohan. She has three younger siblings, all of whom are also either actors or models. Lindsay's parents married in 1985 and separated four years later. They were reunited once more but finally separated again in 2005, divorcing two years later.
Lohan began working in show-business at the age of three, when she started working as a child model with Ford Models. She modelled for the likes of Calvin Klein and Abercrombie Kids as well as appearing in a Jell-O ad with Bill Cosby. By the time she played the role of Alli Fowler in Another World, at the age of 10, she was already considered a showbiz veteran.
Career: Lindsay Lohan's big break came in 1998 when she landed the role of estranged twins trying to reunite their divorced parents (played by Dennis Quaid and Natasha Richardson). The film was a huge box office success and film critics flagged Lohan's potential as a future Hollywood star.
Another key moment in Lindsay Lohan's career trajectory was the release of Freaky Friday. The film, released in 2003, starred Jamie Lee Curtis and led to the respected film critic Roger Ebert comparing Lohan to Jodie Foster. It also gave her the ability to show off her vocal talent, as she sang on the film's soundtrack, including the closing number 'Ultimate'. She also recorded four songs for the soundtrack to Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen. The film was billed as a 'teen musical' and also starred Megan Fox and Adam Garcia.
Confessions. received mixed reviews but luckily for Lohan, she redeemed herself with the release of Mean Girls. The movie - the first of her films to be produced outside of the Disney stable - was a critical and commercial success, penned by Saturday Night Live star Tina Fey. Fey also co-starred in the film, along with Rachel McAdams and Amanda Seyfried.
In 2004, Lindsay Lohan released her debut album, entitled Speak. It was soon to be certified Platinum and debuted at number four on the Billboard chart - a credible position for a child actor turned pop star. That year, she also started filming Herbie: Fully Loaded, during which she was hospitalised for a kidney infection, which was attributed to stress in her personal life.
Her second album, A Little More Personal (Raw) was released in 2005 but didn't fare quite so well as its predecessor, as it debuted at number 20. Her next major film came the following year - Just My Luck - which reportedly earned the star over $7 million, despite poor reviews and a 'Worst Actress' nomination at the Golden Raspberries awards.
Lohan then began to focus on smaller, independent movies, such as Robert Altman's A Prairie Home Companion, which also starred Meryl Streep, Lily Tomlin, Woody Harrelson and Kevin Kline. She then went on to appear in Bobby, written by Emilio Estevez and starring Sharon Stone, Laurence Fishburne and Heather Graham. In Chapter 27, Lindsay Lohan plays the role of a John Lennon fan who befriends his killer, Mark David Chapman (played by Jared Leto). The 2007 film Georgia Rule saw Lohan appear onscreen along with Jane Fonda and Felicity Huffman.
2007 proved to be a troubled year for the actress, who withdrew from filming an adaptation of Oscar Wilde's A Woman of No Importance. The official line from her publicist was that she needed to focus on 'getting better'. Her Alcoholics Anonymous' attendances had already been widely documented at this point, as had her visits to rehab. She was also unable to start filming Poor Things as she was - not once but twice - arrested for DUI (driving under the influence) just before filming was due to start.
In 2008, Lindsay Lohan made her first screen appearance in a while, when she appeared on Ugly Betty, guest starring in four episodes. In 2009, she starred in Labor Pains, a comedy about a woman that pretends to be pregnant, although the film was eventually demoted to a TV network special, rather than receiving a theatrical release.
Despite being cast as Linda Lovelace in the film Inferno, film producers have stated that Lohan is 'impossible to insure', owing to her previous erratic behaviour, much of which directly affected her ability to work. She did, however, go on to appear in Robert Rodriguez's exploitation movie Machete. The film was hugely popular and also starred Jessica Alba, Michelle Rodriguez and Steven Segal. This, however, was to be her last onscreen performance for a while, as speculation over her private life started to overtake interest in her acting abilities.
Personal Life: Lindsay Lohan has been romantically linked to a number of high profile men, including Calum Best (son of British footballer George Best), Aaron Carter and James Blunt. She also famously dated Dj Samantha Ronson, the sister of the record producer Mark Ronson.
Lohan has been arrested a number of times for driving under the influence of alcohol. She has also been arrested for breaking her bail conditions, failing alcohol tests whilst under house arrest and for possession of cocaine.
The actress has previously suggested telling harassment stories made women look 'weak'
American actress Lindsay Lohan has apologised for controverisal comments she made about the global #metoo movement and the 'hurt and distress' they may have caused.

Lindsay Lohan attracted a backlash over comments on the #MeToo movement this week.
Lindsay Lohan is on the receiving end of a social media backlash after she stated in a recent interview that she believes the #MeToo movement against sexual harassment makes women “look weak”.
The 32 year old actress made the comments in a recent interview for The Times. Despite saying that she didn’t “have much to say on the matter”, as she’s never experienced abuse herself directly, Lohan said that women should go public straight after the incident, not wait years to speak about it in retrospect.
“You make it a real thing by making it a police report,” she opined, when asked about the movement that emerged late last year in the wake of the Hollywood sexual abuse scandal.

Lohan had argued that a character from Rockstar Games' 2013 game 'GTA V' bore a resemblance to her.
Lindsay Lohan has lost a court battle with the makers of Grand Theft Auto V, over what she claimed was their creation of a character in the hit video game that bore a likeness to her.
An attorney representing the 31 year old actress argued in New York’s Court of Appeals this week that Take-Two Interactive Software, which owns Grand Theft Auto makers Rockstar Games, violated her privacy by using several “lookalike” images of her in the 2013 game, which became the fastest-selling entertainment product in history.
However, handing down their ruling on Thursday (March 29th), the court said that they were simply satirical representations of a young woman, intended to be stereotypically “modern and beach-going”, and were not similar enough to Lohan.
The actress is currently vacationing in Thailand.
