Lohan started in show business as a [[Child modeling|child fashion model]] for magazine advertisements and television commercials. At age 11, she made her motion picture debut in [[Walt Disney Pictures|Disney's]] 1998 remake of ''[[The Parent Trap (1998 film)|The Parent Trap]]''. Lohan rose to stardom between 2003 and 2005 with leading roles in the films ''[[Freaky Friday (2003 film)|Freaky Friday]]'', ''[[Mean Girls]]'' and ''[[Herbie: Fully Loaded]].'' She subsequently appeared in independent movies like [[Robert Altman]]'s ''[[A Prairie Home Companion (film)|A Prairie Home Companion]]'' and ''[[Bobby (2006 film)|Bobby]]''. Her career was interrupted in 2007 as two [[Driving under the influence|DUI]] incidents and three visits to [[Drug rehabilitation|rehabilitation]] facilities led to several lost movie deals. She guest starred in the TV series ''[[Ugly Betty]]'' in 2008 and filmed [[Robert Rodriguez]]'s ''[[Machete (film)|Machete]]'' in 2009. Lohan launched a second career in pop music in 2004 with the album ''[[Speak (Lindsay Lohan album)|Speak]]'' and followed up with ''[[A Little More Personal (Raw)]]'' in 2005.

Her ad work led to roles in [[soap opera]]s, and she was already considered a show-business veteran in 1996 when she landed the role of Alexandra "Alli" Fowler on ''[[Another World (TV series)|Another World]]'', "where she delivered more dialogue than any other 10-year-old in daytime serials" of the time.{{cite web | |title=Lindsay Lohan at Filmbug UK |url= |accessdate=January 22, 2006 }} Lohan gave up ''Another World'' for the big screen when director [[Nancy Meyers]] cast her to play the dual roles of the estranged twin sisters who try to reunite their long-divorced parents ([[Dennis Quaid]] and [[Natasha Richardson]]) in the [[The Parent Trap (1998 film)|1998 remake]] of ''[[The Parent Trap (1961 film)|The Parent Trap]]''.

Music career

Lohan in 2002
Aiming to become a triple threat—actor, singer and dancer—similar to Ann-Margret and Marilyn Monroe, Lohan began showcasing her singing talent through her films. For the Freaky Friday soundtrack, she sang the closing theme, "Ultimate"; she also recorded four songs for the Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen soundtrack. Producer Emilio Estefan, Jr. signed Lohan to a five-album production deal in 2002. Two years later, Lohan signed a recording contract with Casablanca Records, headed by Tommy Mottola.

Her debut album, Speak, was released in December 2004, and peaked at number four on the Billboard 200. By early 2005, it was certified Platinum. Though primarily a pop album, Speak was introduced with the single "Rumors", described by Rolling Stone as "a bass-heavy, angry club anthem". Its sexually suggestive video reached number one on MTV's Total Request Live and was nominated for Best Pop Video at the 2005 MTV Video Music Awards. "Rumors" eventually earned a Gold certification in America. The album spawned the second single "Over" and the third single "First", which was featured in Lohan's 2005 film Herbie: Fully Loaded.

In December 2005, her second album, A Little More Personal , debuted at number 20 on the Billboard 200 chart, but fell under the top 100 within six weeks. Slant magazine called it "contrived ... but for all the so-called weighty subject matter, there's not much meat on these bones." The album was certified Gold on January 18, 2006. The music video for the album's first single, "Confessions of a Broken Heart "—directed by Lohan and featuring the acting debut of her sister, Ali—was a dramatization of the pain Lohan says her family has suffered at the hands of her father. It was Lohan's first song to chart on the Billboard Hot 100, peaking at #57.

Following a switch to Universal Motown, Lohan began working on a third album in late 2007 and in May 2008 the song "Bossy" was released. In November 2008 she stated that work on the album had stalled and that she wanted to avoid the stress of working on movies and music at the same time.

Other work


In 2004, at age 17, Lohan became the youngest ever host of the MTV Movie Awards. Following Mean Girls, which was scripted by Tina Fey and featured several alumni of Saturday Night Live, Lohan was asked to host the show three times, in 2004, 2005 and 2006, when she also hosted the World Music Awards. She was a guest judge on US TV style contest Project Runway sixth season premiere episode, which aired in August 2009.

In 2005, Lohan became the first person to have a My Scene doll released by Mattel. She also voiced herself in the direct-to-DVD My Scene Goes Hollywood film based on the series of dolls. Lohan makes a cameo in the drug themed music video for the May 2008 N*E*R*D song "Everyone Nose". In April 2009, following her break up with Samantha Ronson, Lohan appeared in a skit on the comedy website Funny or Die. The self-deprecating video is a spoof of the personal ads on dating website eHarmony. It was viewed 2.7 million times in the first week and received favorable comments from the media.

Modelling and fashion

Lohan was voted #10 on the list of "100 Sexiest Women" by readers of FHM in 2005. Maxim placed her at #3 on its 2006 Hot 100 list. In 2007, Lohan placed at #1 on the Maxim "Hot 100". Lohan has been the face of Jill Stuart, Miu Miu, and Dooney and Bourke, as well as the 2008 Visa Swap UK fashion campaign. Lohan was also the face of Italian clothing company Fornarina for its Spring/Summer 2009 campaign.

Lohan has a long-lasting admiration for Marilyn Monroe going back to when she saw Niagara during the The Parent Trap shoot. In the February 25, 2008 Spring Fashion edition of New York, Lohan re-created Monroe's final photo shoot, known as The Last Sitting, including nudity. Though her mother said doing the photo shoot was an "honor", The New York Times critic Ginia Bellafante found it disturbing: "the pictures ask viewers to engage in a kind of mock necrophilia. ... At 21 [Lohan] seems even older than Monroe, who was 36 in the originals ... [and] the photographs bear none of Monroe's fragility".

In 2008, Lohan launched a leggings line, whose name 6126 was designed to represent Monroe's birth date (June 1, 1926). In April 2009 she released a self-tanning spray under the brand name Sevin Nyne in collaboration with Sephora. On September 9, 2009 it was announced that Lohan would be an artistic adviser for the French fashion house Emanuel Ungaro. The first collection, by designer Estrella Archs with Lohan as adviser, was presented on October 4. Entertainment Weekly and New York described the reception by the fashion world as "disastrous". Fashion trade journal WWD called the collection "an embarrassment", "a bad joke" and The New York Times compared Lohan's work to "a McDonald’s fry cook taking the reins of a three-star Michelin restaurant."

Personal life

Family background and education

Lohan was born on July 2, 1986 in New York City and grew up in Merrickmarker and Cold Spring Harbormarker on Long Islandmarker in New Yorkmarker. She is the eldest child of Donata "Dina" (née Sullivan) and Michael Lohan. Lohan has three younger siblings, all of whom were child models: Michael Jr., who appeared with her in The Parent Trap, sister Aliana ("Ali"), who is also an actress, and Dakota ("Cody"), the youngest Lohan child. Lohan is of Irish and Italian heritage and was raised as a Catholic. Her maternal family were "well known Irish Catholic stalwarts" in Merrick, with her great-grandfather, John L. Sullivan, being a co-founder of the Pro-life Party in Long Island. Lohan attended Cold Spring Harbor High Schoolmarker on Long Island where she did cheerleading and played basketball, soccer and lacrosse, describing herself as a "jock". She went to high school until grade 11 when she started homeschooling.

Lohan's parents have a turbulent history. They married in 1985, separated when she was three, and later reunited. Her father has been in trouble with the law repeatedly. He was a Wall Streetmarker trader and in the late 1980s he served a four year sentence for stock fraud. He went to jail in 1998 for a probation violation, and in 2000 after violating an order of protection to prevent him from seeing his children. In December 2005, Michael and Dina Lohan signed a separation agreement. According to Vanity Fair, Dina Lohan accused Michael of threats and domestic abuse in the legal papers. Michael Lohan in turn insinuated through the media that Dina had been drinking and doing drugs, possibly together with Lindsay. In 2007, Lohan's parents announced that their divorce proceedings had been finalized.

Lohan spoke in 2007 about her childhood: "I feel like a second parent in the sense that I helped raise my family." ... "I was put between my mother and father a lot. Well, I would put myself between them to try and keep the peace, and I felt good doing that." Despite the conflicts, Lohan calls herself "a family girl" and has spoken very fondly of her family, including her father. However, in 2007 and again in 2008 she stated that she was no longer in contact with him, describing his unpredictable behavior as hard to deal with.

Lohan has suffered from asthma since the age of two, but despite this she is a smoker as of 2008. Following Mean Girls in 2004 Lohan spent several years living out of hotels in Los Angeles, two of those years at Chateau Marmontmarker. In fall 2007, after settling down in more permanent residency, she explained that she spent so much time in hotels because she "didn't want to be alone" but that "it wasn't a way of life ... not very consistent."

Car accidents, DUIs and rehabilitation

Lohan has had a series of car accidents that have been widely reported, with minor crashes in August 2004, October 2005, and November 2006, when Lohan suffered minor injuries because a paparazzo who was following her for a photograph hit her car. Police called the crash intentional, but prosecutors said there was not enough evidence to file criminal charges. Lohan is well known on the celebrity party scene. In 2006, Lohan attended Alcoholics Anonymous meetings.

On January 18, 2007, Lohan checked herself in to the Wonderland Center rehabilitation facility. Through her representative, she issued a statement saying, "I have made a proactive decision to take care of my personal health". Lohan checked out on February 16, 2007 after completing a 30-day stay. On May 26, 2007, Lohan lost control of her car and ran the vehicle up a curb. Beverly Hills police also found what they preliminarily identified as a "usable" amount of cocaine in her car. After receiving treatment for minor injuries, Lohan was arrested on a misdemeanor charge of driving under the influence of alcohol. Two days later, Lohan entered the Promises Treatment Centers rehabilitation facility, where she stayed for 45 days.

On July 24, 2007, Lohan failed a field sobriety test in Santa Monicamarker and was taken to a police station where her blood alcohol level was found to be above the legal limit. While conducting a search, the police found a small amount of cocaine in her pocket. Lohan was booked on a felony charge of possession of cocaine and misdemeanor charges of driving under the influence and driving with a suspended license. In August 2007 Lohan entered Cirque Lodge Treatment Center in Sundance, Utahmarker for a third stint at rehabilitation, staying until discharge on October 5, 2007.

On August 23, 2007, Lohan pleaded guilty to cocaine use and driving under the influence and was sentenced to one day in jail and 10 days community service. She was also ordered to pay fines and complete an alcohol education program, and was placed on three years probation. "It is clear to me that my life has become completely unmanageable because I am addicted to alcohol and drugs," Lohan said in a statement. On November 15, 2007, Lohan served only 84 minutes in jail. A sheriff spokesman cited overcrowding and the nonviolent nature of the crime as reasons for the reduced sentence. The probation was extended with an additional year in October 2009, following several instances of Lohan failing to attend the court ordered substance abuse treatment classes.

Political positions

In 2004, Lohan stated that she did not like to talk about politics because she did not want to risk alienating any part of her fanbase. However, in 2006 she expressed an interest in going to Iraq on a USO tour with Hillary Clinton. During the 2008 US presidential campaign, she offered her services to Barack Obama's election effort, including hosting events aimed at young voters; but her offer was declined. An unnamed source within the Obama campaign told the Chicago Sun-Times that Lohan was "not exactly the kind of high-profile star who would be a positive for us." She nonetheless posted MySpace blogs with her opinions on the election, urging voters to support Obama, criticizing media coverage of vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin, and describing Palin as homophobic, anti-abortion and anti-environmentalist.


Lohan began dating singer Aaron Carter in 2001. It was reported that Carter left Hilary Duff for Lohan, but soon broke up with Lohan and resumed dating Duff. On March 23, 2007, Claymation facsimiles of Lohan and Duff appeared on the celebrity wrestling series Celebrity Death Match episode "Where's Lohan?". Duff and Lohan were later reported to have been involved in a feud with each other over their relationship with Carter. In 2007, Duff and Lohan had reconciled. Lohan attended the release party for Duff's album Dignity and Duff told People magazine that she thought Lohan was "fun" and "a nice girl". Lohan started dating Wilmer Valderrama in 2003, though the couple were not seen together until May 2004 and didn't go public with their romance until Lohan's 18th birthday bash at the Hollywood nightclub Avalon two months later; the couple broke up in late 2004. Lohan has also dated Pink Taco restaurant owner Harry Morton and British TV personality Calum Best. While seeking treatment at the Cirque Lodge in Utahmarker, Lohan met and began dating Riley Giles; however, in late November 2007, it was announced that they had split up. Lohan's mother, Dina Lohan said, "[Riley] took desperate measures to hurt Lindsay because she broke up with him".

In 2008, Lohan and Samantha Ronson were regularly seen being affectionate in public, and in July several newspapers described their relationship as romantic. In September Lohan wrote in an e-mail to the New York Post about Ronson: "I care for her very much and she's a wonderful girl ... She loves me, as I do her." In the December 2008 issue of Harper's Bazaar she said "I think it's pretty obvious who I'm seeing ... I think it's no shock to anyone that it's been going on for quite some time." While speaking about her sexual orientation, Lohan said she was not a lesbian, but when asked if she was bisexual, she responded "Maybe. Yeah." She then added, "I don't want to classify myself." Lohan said her family, with the exception of her father Michael, had been supportive of her relationship with Ronson. The couple broke up in early April 2009. Lohan was interviewed about the break up in Us Weekly.
