Lindsay Morgan Lohan, born Lindsay Dee Lohan; July 2, 1986) is an American actress, fashion designer, model and recording artist. She began her career as a child fashion model when she was three, and was later featured on the soap opera Another World for a year when she was 10. At age 11, Lohan made her motion picture debut in Disney’s remake of The Parent Trap (1998), a critical and commercial hit. Her next motion picture, Disney’s remake of Freaky Friday (2003), was also a success at the box office and with critics. With the release of Mean Girls (2004), another critical and commercial success, Lohan became a household name and a frequent target of paparazzi and tabloids. The two films earned her several MTV Movie Awards and Teen Choice Awards.
Lohan’s debut studio album, Speak (2004), was certified platinum. Her second album, A Little More Personal (Raw) (2005), was certified gold. Earlier in 2005, Lohan starred in Disney’s Herbie: Fully Loaded, another box office success. In 2006, she received positive comments on her work in independent films, including Robert Altman‘s A Prairie Home Companion and Emilio Estevez‘s Bobby. In 2007, two driving under the influence incidents led to Lohan being put on probation, and together with three visits to rehabilitation facilities caused the loss of several movie deals.
In 2008 and 2009, Lohan worked as a fashion model and launched the clothing line 6126. She resumed her acting career with recurring appearances in the TV series Ugly Betty in 2008 and starred in the TV film Labor Pains in 2009. She was featured in Robert Rodriguez‘s feature film Machete (2010). She spent much of 2010 and 2011 entangled in legal problems stemming from probation violations and a necklace theft. After her supervised probation was lifted in 2012, she did further television work, including starring as Elizabeth Taylor in the biographical TV film Liz & Dick (2012).

At three, Lindsay Lohan was a working model. As a kid she appeared in ads for dozens of products from Pizza Hut to the Gap, and co-starred with Bill Cosby in a Jell-O commercial. At six, she was one of the trick-or-treaters who rang David Letterman‘s doorbell on a Halloween Late Show. Her costume was made from garbage allegedly found on the D-train, and Letterman gave her a garden hose. At ten, Lohan was a semi-regular on the soap opera Another World, as Alexandra “Ally” Fowler. The following year, she made her motion picture debut as twins in Disney‘s 1998 remake of The Parent Trap with Dennis Quaid.
After a few years’ break from her career, Lohan moved to Los Angeles without her parents, and for a while shared an apartment with actress Raven-Symoné. Lohan briefly dated babyfaced actor Aaron Carter, until she learned he was also dating Hilary Duff. Duff and Lohan feuded loudly about that for months, before Lohan decided that the whole rivalry was rather “high school”.
She re-teamed with Disney for another hit remake, Freaky Friday with Jamie Lee Curtis, and in Tina Fey‘s Mean Girls she played a high school girl drifting toward bitchdom. In 2002 she signed a multi-album deal with Emilio and Gloria Estefan‘s Estefan Enterprises. Her first album, Speak, went platinum, and her 2005 follow-up A Little More Personal (Raw) went gold.
As an adult, Lohan’s night life with celebrity pals like Paris Hilton became legendary. In October 2004 she was hospitalized with “a high fever”, in February 2005 she was hospitalized with “chest pains”, in January 2006 she was hospitalized after an “asthma attack”. In July 2006 she was hospitalized with “heatstroke and exhaustion” while filming Georgia Rule with Jane Fonda, but after that incident witnesses said Lohan had been partying at a Hollywood nightclub the night before. James Robinson, CEO of the Morgan Creek studio, wrote Lohan a letter blaming her “all-night, heavy partying” for her chronic lateness and absences from the set — and released the letter to the media. Similar accounts followed, of Lohan’s social life causing delays on Herbie Fully Loaded and Bobby. In January 2007 she was briefly hospitalized for “an appendectomy”, her publicist said, and she was seen partying til dawn the day after her alleged surgery. Even Tara Reid has told reporters “Lindsay Lohan is way more wild than I was when I was her age.”
Through the spring and summer of 2005 Lohan appeared excessively thin, triggering speculation of anorexia or bulimia. Lohan denied any problem, but after several months she urged young girls to “learn from my mistakes”, and admitted to a bout with bulimia. She then demanded a retraction, claiming the quote had been fabricated by reporters at Vanity Fair, but the magazine had the interview on tape.
In November 2006, perhaps unclear on the concept of “anonymous”, both Lohan’s publicist and her mother told the press that the actress had been attending Alcoholics Anonymous meetings. Her mother, however, stressed that Lohan was not an alcoholic, but only attended meetings to show her support for her friends. In January 2007, about five months before she would be old enough to legally drink alcoholic beverages, Lohan checked into a Los Angeles rehab center, and she has returned to rehab several times since then. While ensconced at the pricey Cirque Lodge rehabilitation center in Utah, she reportedly had sex in a toilet stall with another rehabbing resident, Tony Allen, a musician in the band Dead Stays Alive. Allen’s wife, British millionaire Stephanie Allen, later named Lohan as “the other woman” in divorce papers.
In May 2005 she was in an auto wreck, and said her car was forced off the road by paparazzi pursuing her. Weeks later she said she had almost been in a second accident caused by media hounding. In October 2005, with no reporters nearby, she was in an accident in Beverly Hills. In November 2006, again reportedly being pursued by photographers, she crashed her car in Los Angeles, then told reporters later that she feared she would “end up like Princess Diana“. A week and a half later she was in London with Calum Best, son of soccer star George Best, when their vehicle rammed into a police car. In March 2007 Lohan struck a photographer with her BMW in Los Angeles. In May 2007 Lohan’s Mercedes was in a fender-bender on Sunset Boulevard, and she was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence and possession of cocaine. In July 2007 she was arrested again, for drunk driving and possession of cocaine. In August 2007 she allegedly stole a friend’s vehicle to chase the mother of an ex-employee, and cocaine was found in the vehicle Lohan was driving, but she assured police and reporters that it was not her cocaine.
She has been repeatedly accused of taking items that do not belong to her. In 2008, a mink coat disappeared from a New York night club, and Lohan was publicly suspected. In 2009, a $400,000 necklace she wore for an Elle magazine photo shoot vanished. In 2010, it was claimed she had “borrowed” a $35,000 Rolex from a friend without permission. She was not prosecuted in any of these incidents, but in 2011 she was charged with felony grand theft for allegedly stealing a $2,500 necklace from a California jewelry store. Lohan maintained that she had merely borrowed the necklace, with the shop’s permission. More recently, she has continued to make headlines for a litany of petty arrests and altercations. As of late 2012, Lohan has made 19 court appearances, and gone through rehab five times.
During Lohan’s well-publicized problems her father, Michael Lohan, has repeatedly gone to the media to berate her. He demanded millions in alimony as he divorced her mother — “his share” of his daughter’s earnings — and while she was still a child star he reportedly threatened to kill both Lohan and her mother. He was arrested several times after his daughter became famous, once for pummeling her uncle with a shoe at communion, once for drunk driving, and twice for violating an order of protection taken out by Lohan’s mother. In 2005 he pled guilty to drunk driving, attempted assault, aggravated harassment and criminal contempt, and was sentenced to four years in prison. After serving almost two years at the Collins Correctional Facility near Buffalo, NY, he was released in March 2007. During his jail time he found the Lord and became an ordained minister. In April 2010 he announced his engagement to former tabloid reporter and Jon Gosselin ex Kate Major, and three months later she obtained a restraining order against him, alleging that he had kicked her in the head. In August 2010 he announced that he would be opening a God-based drug and alcohol rehabilitation center.
 Publicist/blogger Jonathan Jaxson wrote in April 2007, “I would love to name all the young Hollywood she has slept with, but I will keep that for the book. Maybe she was tired of the boys and that is why she decided to spice it up with BFF Samantha Ronson. Here she gets a boy and a girl packaged all into one.” In September 2008, Lohan and Ronson confirmed their relationship during a phone call to Los Angeles radio show Loveline.
