Lindsay Dee Lohan (born July 2, 1986) is an American actress. She is also a model, singer, songwriter, director, and producer.
Lohan 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 success. Her next major motion picture, Disney’s remake of Freaky Friday (2003), was also a critical and commercial success. With the release of Mean Girls (2004), another critical and commercial success, and Disney’s Herbie: Fully Loaded (2005), another commercial success, Lohan became a teen idol sensation, a household name and a frequent focus of paparazzi and tabloids. However, Lohan’s next starring role in the romantic comedy Just My Luck (2006), received poor reviews and was only a modest commercial success. Following Just My Luck, Lohan focused on smaller, more mature roles in independent movies, receiving positive comments on her work, including A Prairie Home Companion (2006), Bobby (2006) and Chapter 27 (2007).
After recording several songs for her movie soundtracks, Lohan signed with Casablanca Records. Lohan’s debut studio album, titled Speak, was released in December 2004 and became the first high-seller from Casablanca in several years, selling 1 million copies in the United States alone and peaking at number four on the Billboard 200.
The 8-part docu-series Lindsay was transmitted in March and April 2014 on Oprah Winfrey’s OWN cable network. The series followed Lohan’s life and work as she moved to New York City after leaving rehab. In the final episode, Lohan said that she had had a miscarriage which had interrupted filming of the series.
In July 2007, Lohan’s home was burglarized by the Bling Ring, a group of fashion-motivated burglars whose ringleader considered Lohan to be their ultimate conquest. Video surveillance of the burglary recorded at Lohan’s home played a large role in breaking the case.
During the 2008 US presidential campaign, Lohan offered her services to Barack Obama’s Democratic election effort, but was declined.In a blog post, Lohan criticized the media and then Republican Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin for not focusing on policy, and described Palin as homophobic and anti-choice.Lohan had previously expressed an interest in going to Iraq, during the Iraq War in 2006, on a USO tour with Hillary Clinton. In the 2012 presidential election, Lohan supported Republican candidate Mitt Romney, something that prompted ABC News to call her a “political turncoat.Only weeks later, she tweeted words supportive of Obama.
Lohan reportedly dated fellow teen star Aaron Carter between 2000 and 2001. The relationship garnered media attention with reports of a love triangle between Lohan, Carter, and actress and singer Hilary Duff. Lohan began dating actor Wilmer Valderrama in 2004. She also guest-starred in an episode of That ’70s Show, where Valderrama was a regular. After their break-up, Lohan wrote her second single, “Over,” about the experience. Lohan dated Hard Rock Cafe heir Harry Morton in 2006. In May 2007, Lohan dated British TV personality Calum Best.
