Lindsay Lohan (born July 2, 1986) is an American actress, recording artist, and model. She began her career as a child fashion model before making her motion picture debut in Walt Disney‘s 1998 remake of The Parent Trap at the age of 11. Lohan gained further fame with leading roles in the films Freaky Friday (2003), Mean Girls (2004), and Herbie: Fully Loaded (2005). Subsequently, she also appeared in various independent films including Robert Altman‘s A Prairie Home Companion and Emilio Estevez‘s Bobby. In 2004, Lohan launched a second career as a recording artist, releasing her debut album Speak that same year, which was followed by A Little More Personal (Raw) in 2005.
In 2007, her career was interrupted when two driving under the influence (DUI) incidents and three visits to rehabilitation facilities led to the loss of several movie deals. Resuming her career, she guest starred in ABC‘s Ugly Betty in 2008, and starred in the 2009 comedy film Labor Pains. In 2010, she appeared in Robert Rodriguez‘s film Machete. She has attracted a great deal of publicity, particularly surrounding her personal life.
