Lindsay Morgan Lohan (born July 2, 1986 in New York City, United States) is an actress and pop music singer. Lohan was raised in Merrick, New York. She began her rise to fame as a
Freckle-faced, auburn-haired Lindsay Lohan began her career as a model for Ford Models at age three, at a time when blue-eyed blondes were in highest demand. She later worked for Calvin Klein Kids and Abercrombie Kids. Lohan has been featured in such diverse magazines as Vogue, Elle, Bliss (UK), Ð¥Ð°Ð¹ ÐšÐ»ÑƒÐ± ("High Club", Bulgaria), and Blenda (Japan).
As a child, Lohan appeared in more than 60 commercials and was a regular on soap operas, spending several months as Allison "Alli" Fowler on Another World, "where she delivered more dialogue than any other 10-year-old in a daytime series."
As a teen, Lohan starred in two Disney Channel original movies, Life-Size and Get a Clue. She also played Bette Midler's daughter in the first episode of the short-lived series Bette before bowing out when the production moved from New York to Los Angeles.
Three years later, Lohan was Punk'd by Ashton Kutcherâ€”a practical joke that led Lohan to believe that her limousine driver had missed the birth of his child. On 8 November 2004, Lohan made a much-publicized cameo appearance on That '70s Show, playing Danielle opposite Kelso (Kutcher) and Fez (then-boyfriend Wilmer Valderrama).
Lohan has hosted Saturday Night Live twice.
Lohan gave up her role on Another World when Nancy Meyers cast her as estranged twin sisters who try to reunite her estranged parents (Dennis Quaid and Natasha Richardson) in The Parent Trap (1998). Film critic Janet Maslin said Lohan (at age 11) "plays the dual role with ... so much forcefulness that she seems to have been taking 'shy violet' lessons from Sharon Stone."
Her next feature, Freaky Friday (2003), starred Jamie Lee Curtis and Lohan as a mother and daughter who get trapped in the other's bodies. Critic Roger Ebert wrote that Lohan "has that Jodie Foster sort of seriousness and intent focus beneath her teenage persona."
Lohan was given the lead in two films: Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen (Disney's first non-remake involving Lohan) and Paramount's Mean Girls, both of which were released in 2004. Drama Queen was only a moderate success at the box office; reviews of the film were dismal, though Lohan's performance fared better with critics. Mean Girls, her first PG-13 (and first non-Disney) film, is considered her breakout role; the critical and commercial hit grossed over US$86 million, "cementing her status as the new teen movie queen."
In 2005, Lohan starred in Herbie: Fully Loaded, the fifth film in Walt Disney Pictures' long-dormant Herbie series. Her next film, Just My Luck, is set for release in March, 2006. In July, 2005, she finished work on A Prairie Home Companion (due out in the summer of 2006), an independent film directed by Robert Altman.
By December, 2005, Lohan was shooting the independent Emilio Estevez film Bobby, opposite Elijah Wood. The month before, Variety also reported her involvement in Chapter 27 with Jared Leto
