->''"Our younger readers know Lindsay Lohan as a sort-of porn star and constant reminder of our society's sick and destructive relationship with pretty things, but before that, she was an actress who was paid lots of money to be in normal movies."''

Lindsay Morgan Lohan ([[ItIsPronouncedTroPAY that's Lo-HAN]], as in ''Rohan''), born July 2, 1986, is an American model, pop singer, songwriter, and actress.

A former child actor and model, Lohan rose to fame when she began acting and landed several major film roles, notably the Disney remakes of ''Film/TheParentTrap'' and ''Film/FreakyFriday'', then later in the Creator/TinaFey-penned 2004 film ''Film/MeanGirls''.

Lohan was anointed by the media as [[HollywoodHypeMachine the "next big thing"]]. Unfortunately, the newfound attention from the media got to her, and she started drinking while underage (with her own mother no less) and partying all the time. Soon she ended up with two D.U.I.s, two more arrests for drug possession, and went under rehabilitation which slowed down her career considerably and since then she's been more well-known for her legal troubles than acting career.
