"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 (that's Lo-HAN, as in Rohan; born July 2, 1986) is an American Actress, Model, Singer and Songwriter.

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 The Parent Trap and Freaky Friday, then later in the Tina Fey-penned 2004 film Mean Girls.

Lohan was anointed by the media as 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 her acting career.

  • Fiery Redhead: She's a natural red and has played quite a few feisty characters.
  • Follow Your Heart La Bella Vita, Fastlane, Disconnected, I Live For The Day, Anything But Me
  • It Is Pronounced "Tro-PAY": Believe it or not, Lindsey says the proper pronunciation of her surname is "Low-an" (the H is silent); despite this, people tend to pronounce it like it's spelt.

She has been in relationships with Wilmer Valderrama and Samantha Ronson, though her father did not approve of Samantha because she is a woman (and because he believed her to be a bad influence on Lindsay).
