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 faced criticism after posting a picture dressed as the murdered Tate on her Instagram account.
Lindsay Lohan has caused controversy on Instagram, after posting a picture of herself dressed as murdered actress Sharon Tate. The Mean Girls star had picked an unfortunate day to pay tribute to the late actress, as it happened to be the 81st birthday of Charles Manson, who ordered Tate’s murder in 1969.
If Lohan is elected will we all have to wear pink on Wednesdays?
The 2020 Presidential election looks like it's shaping up to be one big star studded affair. Weeks after Kanye West announced he’d be running for election in five years time, it seems the next star looking to add their name to the ballot papers is Lindsay Lohan, who announced her intentions on Instagram, Friday (cause where else?)
The actress is reported to have stripped off and claimed she had been drugged during a pal’s lavish nuptials.
Actress Lindsay Lohan reportedly made quite the scene during the wedding of her millionaire friend Justin Etzin to model Lana Zakocela in Italy last weekend. According to US Weekly, all eyes were on Lohan during the wedding party as her antics included, stripping off, claiming she had been drugged and painting her nails during the ceremony.

LiLo has officially completed her community service sentence following a last-minute rush to complete over 100 hours in a fortnight.
Lindsay Lohan has described the end of her probation as a “clean slate” and a “fresh start”. After nearly eight years, the former Mean Girls star learned on Thursday that her probation period had come to an end after Judge Mark Young ruled that she had completed her community service hours dating back to a 2012 reckless driving incident.
In a statement to People magazine, the troubled 28 year old actress said “I am very grateful to those at Brooklyn Community Services, Duffield and The Ali Forney Center for welcoming me into their services and allowing me to finish my court ordered community service hours.”

LiLo completed her 125 hours just before the Thursday May 28th deadline.
Lindsay Lohan has triumphed in her effort to complete her community service hours in the time allowed – but only just!
It means that when her lawyer Shawn Holley appears in court tomorrow (Thursday May 28th), he is expected to be able to satisfy the court that his client has fulfilled all the requirements made of her, and thus free her from probation for the first time in nearly seven years.

But we must confess, it is a little pricey.
Fancy owning a piece of teen movie history? Well if you’ve got the cash you could become the proud owner of Regina George’s actual Mean Girls mansion, how fetch does that sound? The only problem is, it'll set you back a cool $14.8 million.
Rachel McAdams played Regina George in the 2004 movie.
The Toronto mansion features in the 2004 movie as the home of The Plastics’ queen Regina George, who occupied the 20,000 square foot estate with her ‘cool’ mom and little sister. The property is being sold by Sotheby's International Realty, who describe it as ’an architectural beauty of impeccable standard’.
The actor, who played high-school hottie Aaron Samuels, has confirmed once and for all that he isn't interested in the idea of a 'Mean Girls' sequel.
It's still his most famous role, more than 10 years after Mean Girls hit cinemas and became a cult favourite, but Jonathan Bennett has zero interest in another outing as pin-up pupil Aaron Samuels. When Us Weekly asked the actor about the possibility of reuniting with Lindsay Lohan, Rachel McAdams and the rest of the cast, the 33-year-old didn't exactly mince his words. "I don't give a f**k," he said.
Jonathan Bennett: don't ask him about a Mean Girls sequel
"If anyone asks me one more time if there's going to be a Mean Girls reunion, I'm going to kill someone," he continued while attending the Reality TV Awards in Los Angeles on Wednesday (May 13).

Lindsay Lohan is still behind on her community service – 125 hours, to be exact, which she must complete in 20 days, as declared by a judge earlier this week.
Lindsay Lohan might not manage to stay out of jail for too long.
According to TMZ, even the ten hours that Lohan had allegedly completed are now coming under scrutiny. Court documents allegedly obtained by the gossip site state that indsay got credit for organizing and posting pics on the Facebook page of the London-based community service org. But the legitimacy of those hours fell in question, when it turned out that a staff member gave Lindsay a memory stick, which allowed her to do the work in the comfort of her apartment.

Lindsay Lohan has only completed 10 of the 125 hours of community service she was sentenced to in February. A judge ordered her to complete the hours by the end of May or else...
Lindsay Lohan didn't even attend a court hearing on Thursday (7th May) but still managed to irritate a judge to the extent that he promised there would be "consequences" if the 28-year-old did not complete her community service hours. Lohan is currently living in London and was unable to attend the hearing which took place in Los Angeles.
