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.
Hilary Duff is on Tinder but, in case blind dates weren't awkward enough, is reportedly filming them with a view to create a reality television show around her dating life.

Lindsay’s translating skills have left her looking like a bit of an ass on Instagram.
Oh dear, Lindsay Lohan has suffered a bit of an embarrassing Instagram fail, after posting an image of an Arabic phrase on Tuesday which she thought meant “You’re beautiful”.

Lindsay got her words a little mixed up on Instagram.
Lohan quickly removed the image once she realised the error, but by that time it had of course already been screen capped and shared all over the internet. According to E! Lohan’s post ‘literally reads as "you're a donkey," with the context of telling someone they're an ass.’

Forget the Allstate guy, the world of insurance commercials has a bright, calamity-prone star. Say what you will about Lindsay Lohan, but her Super Bowl ad was sorta the best. The woman is a real pro at self-irony. This year, Lohan did a spot for Esurance, where she played a hot mess driver. It was all very meta, full of self-irony, the way Super Bowl ads are meant to be.
Is Lindsay Lohan the new Allstate Guy?
The video sees Lindsay pull up to a school, knocking out a traffic sign in the process. Lindsay’s trying to pick up her kid, who turns out to not actually be her kid. She’s insistent though, as she’s “sorta” like his mom – 25-35 years old, on the go, pretty much all the information that matters for an insurance policy. Get it? That’s pretty clever, right?

Would you take a lift from LiLo?
It looks like Lindsay Lohan will be able to enjoy the Superbowl from the comfort of her own home this weekend, after completing her community service hours in the nick of time. It’s good news for the actress as aside from the fact jail is pretty unpleasant, a stint behind bars would mean Lilo would her appearance in Esurance's Super Bowl advert on Sunday.
Phew. Lilo is said to have escaped jail time
TMZ reports that the actress completed her required 240 hours at the Community Service Volunteers (CSV) center in London. She will receive a letter of completion which will be presented to a Los Angeles judge by her lawyer Shawn Holley on Wednesday.
The actress has three days to complete 15 days' worth of community service. Okay then...
It’s community service or bust for Lindsay Lohan (bust means jail in this scenario). Back in 2014, Miss Lohan was sentenced to a month of community service, 15 days of which she is yet to complete. As of November 6, her final deadline, Lohan had served half of her term. However, the judge then extended her term until this coming Wednesday. Lindsay went to the Community Service Volunteers in London Friday and Saturday, and her plan was to go Sunday, Monday and Tuesday, according to TMZ.
Lindsay allegedly said she will get it done by Wednesday.
With the Wednesday deadline approaching, it looks like Lindsay will have to scramble to get it done ASAP. Over the past few months, Miss Lohan has had plenty of reasons to put off her community service – from her vacation in Bora Bora to her hospital stay last week for Chikungunya – a disease she allegedly contracted during said vacation. Her detractors have suggested that this might be no more than an excuse to get out of her remaining community service.
