Lindsay Morgan Lohan was born July 2, 1986 in New York. Lindsay is the oldest of four children in her family. Her career started when she was the first red-headed child to join the prestigious Ford Modeling Agency in New York. She appeared in over 60 commercials for clients like The Gap and Wendy’s before landing the role of Ali Fowler on the soap opera Another World in 1996.

Lindsay’s next big break came when she was cast in the Disney remake of The Parent Trap (1998) with Dennis Quaid and Natasha Richardson. She followed that with another Disney movie, Life-Size, in 2000. That same year she made was cast in the pilot for the short-lived TV series Bette, starring Bette Midler, but was replaced by Marina Malota after the show decided to move production to California.

She appeared in another TV movie in 2002, Get a Clue, and the following year struck gold with Disney’s hit remake of Freaky Friday with Jamie Lee Curtis. Keeping busy in 2004, Lindsay starred in Confessions of a Drama Queen and Mean Girls, which was written by SNL head writer Tina Fey.

The tabloids kept busy with Lindsay’s private life, hyping a feud between her and fellow ‘tween star Hilary Duff who found out they were both dating pop star Aaron Carter. Meanwhile, photographers and magazine layouts focused on Lindsay Lohan’s breasts, a situation the 17-year-old made fun of in her May 2004 Saturday Night Live appearance.

2005 saw Lohan in another Disney film, Herbie Fully Loaded. She got a chance to work with the legendary director Robert Altman in 2006’s Prairie Home Companion and joined an all-star cast for Emilio Estevez’s Bobby. In July 2006, Lohan came under heavy fire for her behaviour during the filming of Georgia Rule opposite Jane Fonda. James G. Robinson, the CEO of Morgan Creek Production, sent her a letter which quickly became public. In the missive, Robinson wrote that, “We are well aware that your ongoing all-night, heavy partying is the real reason for your so-called exhaustion.” The executive threatened legal action if her actions continued to affect the filming and called her “discourteous, irresponsible and unprofessional.” Co-star Jane Fonda felt Lohan was lacking a good support structure around her, telling the press that, “I just want to take her in my arms and hold her until she becomes grown-up. She’s so young and she’s so alone out there in the world in terms of structure and, you know, people to nurture her. And she’s so talented.” The media blitz against her actions continued when her Bobby co-star William H. Macy was quoted as saying that Lohan should “have her ass kicked” for the unprofessional way she delays productions.

Unfortunately, the partying continued. Like Paris Hilton and Britney Spears, Lohan was frequently photographed exiting vehicles without underwear in what many saw as a bizzare, yet obviously successful, way to garner publicity. In December 2006, the underage Lohan admitted she had been going to AA meetings for a year and hadn’t touched a “drink in seven days”. In January of 2007, the talented, yet troubled, actress entered a Los Angeles rehab clinic, issuing a statement that “I have made a proactive decision to take care of my personal health. I appreciate your well wishes and ask that you please respect my privacy at this time.”
