Facts about Lindsay Lohan
Lindsay Lohan Biography
Actress Lindsay Lohan got her start as a red-haired, wide-eyed and freckled child star. She began modeling at age three and then appeared in dozens of TV ads as a youngster, including a Jell-O pudding spot with Bill Cosby.
The role of Alli Fowler in the soap opera Another World (1996-97) gave Lohan her first real long-form experience. As she entered her teens she starred in a string of kid-friendly Walt Disney films: as long-separated twin sisters in The Parent Trap (1998, with Dennis Quaid); bringing a favorite doll to life in Life-Size (2000, with supermodel Tyra Banks); switching bodies with her mother (Jamie Lee Curtis) in the 2003 comedy Freaky Friday; and driving a famous Volkswagen Beetle in Herbie: Fully Loaded (2005, with Matt Dillon).
Lohan showed a few less freckles and a few more curves in the high school comedy Mean Girls (2004, with Rachel McAdams); the film was a big hit and made her a star. At the same time she became a tabloid magazine favorite as she grew up and then struggled in the public eye. A wild child fond of late-night revels, she made a brief stay at a rehab facility in January of 2007, then was arrested that May and charged with drunk driving. She entered rehab briefly again, but made headlines the following July for another arrest for driving under the influence. In 2010, a judge sentenced her to 90 days in jail, plus another 90 days in rehab, after Lohan skipped court dates and otherwise seemed to thumb her nose at various legal requirements rising from her arrests. A string of other wrangles with the legal and judicial branches of government followed.
Her other films include the Manhattan romantic comedy Just My Luck (2006), director Robert Altman’s last film, A Prairie Home Companion (2006, based on the radio show of Garrison Keillor), Georgia Rule (2007, starring Felicity Huffman), Labor Pains (2009), the horror film Among the Shadows (2019), and Falling for Christmas (2022). She also had a cameo in the 2024 musical remake of Mean Girls with Angourie Rice in the original Lohan role.
Lindsay Lohan also has dabbled in pop music, releasing the albums Speak in 2004 and A Little More Personal (Raw) in 2005. She played legendary actress Elizabeth Taylor in the 2012 biopic Liz and Dick. She also had a reality show, Lindsay Lohan’s Beach Club, on MTV in 2019.
