BIOGRAPHICAL PROFILE

Lindsay Lohan

Lindsay Morgan Lohan (born Lindsay Dee Lohan; July 2, 1986) is an American actress, model, and singer. 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 success. Her next major 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 focus 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. 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 TV work in 2008, and starred in the TV film Labor Pains in 2009. She appeared in Robert Rodriguez’s feature film Machete (2010). Between 2010 and 2013, Lohan went into rehabilitation three times, and spent much of her time entangled in legal problems stemming from misdemeanors and probation violations. In 2012 and 2013, she did further television work, including starring as Elizabeth Taylor in the biographical TV film Liz & Dick (2012). In 2013, she starred in Paul Schrader’s independent film The Canyons. In 2014 the docu-series Lindsay aired on the Oprah Winfrey Network and Lohan made her stage debut in the London West End production of Speed-the-Plow.

Lindsay Lohan was born on July 2, 1986, in New York City, and grew up in Merrick and Cold Spring Harbor on Long Island, New York. She is the eldest child of Dina Lohan (born Donata Melina Nicolette Sullivan) and Michael Lohan. Her father is a former Wall Street trader who has been in trouble with the law on several occasions, while her mother is a former singer and dancer. Lohan has three younger siblings, all of whom have been models or actors: Michael Jr. (who appeared with Lohan in The Parent Trap), Aliana “Ali”, and Dakota “Cody” Lohan. Lohan is of Irish and Italian heritage and was raised as a Catholic. Her maternal antecedents were “well known Irish Catholic stalwarts” and her great-grandfather, John L. Sullivan, was a co-founder of the Pro-life Party in Long Island. Lohan attended Cold Spring Harbor High School and Sanford H. Calhoun High School, where she did well in science and mathematics, 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. They separated again in 2005 and finalized their divorce in 2007.

Lohan began her career as a child model with Ford Models at the age of three. She modeled for Calvin Klein Kids and abercrombie, and appeared in over 60 television commercials for brands like Pizza Hut and Wendy’s, as well as a Jell-O spot with Bill Cosby. By the age of 10, when Lohan played Alexandra “Alli” Fowler in the television soap opera Another World, Soap Opera Magazine said she was already considered a show-business veteran.

Lohan remained in the role for a year, before leaving to star in Disney’s 1998 family comedy The Parent Trap, a remake of the 1961 movie. She played dual roles of twins separated in infancy who try to reunite their long-divorced parents, played by Dennis Quaid and Natasha Richardson. The film earned $92 million worldwide, and received largely positive reviews. Critic Kenneth Turan called Lohan “the soul of this film as much as Hayley Mills was of the original”, going on to say that “she is more adept than her predecessor at creating two distinct personalities”. The film won Lohan a Young Artist Award for best performance in a feature film as well as a three-film contract with Disney.

At the age of 14, Lohan played Bette Midler’s daughter in the pilot episode of the short-lived series, Bette, but resigned her role when the production moved from New York to Los Angeles. She also starred in two Disney television movies: Life-Size opposite Tyra Banks in 2000, and Get a Clue in 2002.

2006–07: Independent films and career interruptions

Lohan’s next widely released film, the romantic comedy Just My Luck, opened in May 2006 and, according to Variety, earned her over $7 million. The opening weekend box office takings of $5.7 million “broke lead actress Lindsay Lohan’s winning streak” according to Brandon Gray. The film received poor reviews and earned Lohan her first Golden Raspberry nomination for Worst Actress. Following Just My Luck, Lohan focused on smaller roles in more mature, independent movies. Robert Altman’s ensemble comedy A Prairie Home Companion, in which Lohan co-stars with Meryl Streep and Lily Tomlin, had a limited release in June 2006. Peter Travers wrote for Rolling Stone that “Lohan rises to the occasion, delivering a rock-the-house version of ‘Frankie and Johnny’.” Co-star Streep said of Lohan’s acting: “She’s in command of the art form” and “completely, visibly living in front of the camera.” The Emilio Estevez ensemble drama Bobby, about the hours leading up to the Robert F. Kennedy assassination, was released in theaters in November 2006. Lohan received favorable comments for her performance, particularly a scene opposite Sharon Stone. As part of the Bobby ensemble cast, Lohan was nominated for a Screen Actors Guild Award.

Lohan’s next appearance was in Chapter 27 as a John Lennon fan who befriends Mark David Chapman, played by Jared Leto, on the day he murders Lennon. Filming finished in early 2006, but the film was not released until March 2008 due to difficulties in finding a distributor. In May 2007, the drama Georgia Rule was released. In the film, Lohan portrays an out of control teenager whose mother (Felicity Huffman) brings her to the house of her own estranged mother (Jane Fonda). Owen Gleiberman of Entertainment Weekly wrote that “Lohan hits a true note of spiteful princess narcissism.” During filming in 2006, Lohan was hospitalized, her representative saying “she was overheated and dehydrated. At the time Lohan was going through a breakup with Hard Rock Cafe heir Harry Morton which contributed to her problems on the set, according to Allure. In a letter that was made public, studio executive James G. Robinson called Lohan “irresponsible and unprofessional.” He mentioned “various late arrivals and absences from the set” and said that “we are well aware that your ongoing all night heavy partying is the real reason for your so-called ‘exhaustion’.”

In 2006, Lohan attended Alcoholics Anonymous meetings. Lohan, who has suffered from asthma since the age of two, is also a smoker. In early January 2007, production on the film I Know Who Killed Me was put on hold when Lohan underwent appendix surgery. Later in the month, Lohan admitted herself to the Wonderland Center rehabilitation facility for a 30-day stay. During the stay she continued shooting the film, returning to the facility at night. Shortly thereafter, Lohan withdrew from a film adaptation of Oscar Wilde’s A Woman of No Importance, her publicist stating that Lohan needed to “focus on getting better.” Lohan was replaced in The Edge of Love in April 2007, shortly before filming was to begin, with the director citing “insurance reasons” and Lohan later explaining that she “was going through a really bad time then.”In May 2007, Lohan dated British TV personality Calum Best.

Lohan made her stage debut in October 2014, starring in the London West End production of David Mamet’s Speed-the-Plow, a satire about the movie business. She portrayed Karen, the secretary of a Hollywood executive, in a role originally played by Madonna. Reviews of Lohan’s performance were mixed, with the Associated Press describing critical reception overall as “lukewarm”. The Stage said she was “out of her league” while The Times wrote that she “can act a bit” and The Guardian said she “holds the stage with ease”. In December 2014 the free-to-play video game app Lindsay Lohan’s The Price of Fame was released for iOS and Android. Polygon said it was “funny, trashy and surprisingly self-aware” while Vulture called it “a crappy knockoff of Kim Kardashian: Hollywood”. In May 2015, a judge ended Lohan’s probation after she completed the community service that resulted from her 2012 reckless driving, making it the first time in nearly 8 years that she was probation free.
