Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

When it came time to locate the proper actress for the coveted role of identical twins in a remake of Disney's Hayley Mills classic "The Parent Trap" (1961), an exhaustive casting search occurred around the world. After three callbacks and one screen test, freckle-faced Long Islander Lindsay Lohan won the role. Although just 11 years old when cast, it would be her affiliation with Disney that would make her a household name amongst the teen set, particularly young girls who followed the actress/pop singer's every move. As the tomboy redhead grew into a curvy, beautiful teenager, she continued to impress critics with her work in the family films "Freaky Friday" (2003) and "Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen" (2004), but it was apparent the talented girl was about to outgrow her mouse ears. With the release of Tina Fey's dark comedy, "Mean Girls" (2004), Lohan's fame catapulted to a new level of mainstream recognition. Her effervescent, no-holds-barred performance in the instant classic made her the star of the moment that year.

When it came time to locate the proper actress for the coveted role of identical twins in a remake of Disney's Hayley Mills classic "The Parent Trap" (1961), an exhaustive casting search occurred around the world. After three callbacks and one screen test, freckle-faced Long Islander Lindsay Lohan won the role. Although just 11 years old when cast, it would be her affiliation with Disney that would make her a household name amongst the teen set, particularly young girls who followed the actress/pop singer's every move. As the tomboy redhead grew into a curvy, beautiful teenager, she continued to impress critics with her work in the family films "Freaky Friday" (2003) and "Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen" (2004), but it was apparent the talented girl was about to outgrow her mouse ears. With the release of Tina Fey's dark comedy, "Mean Girls" (2004), Lohan's fame catapulted to a new level of mainstream recognition. Her effervescent, no-holds-barred performance in the instant classic made her the star of the moment that year. However, at the peak of her fame, inevitable dramas began to unfold - mysterious hospitalizations, drastic weight loss, public break-ups with famous boyfriends, occasional fender-benders and reported bad behavior on set - all of which caused a shift in perception. Things went from bad to worse following several arrests for DUIs and even a carjacking incident which left even her most vehement supporters scratching their heads. Like many fallen child stars before her - a la Corey Haim, Drew Barrymore and countless others - her off-set behavior began affecting her ability to secure work. But drug arrests, paparazzi photos of a seemingly inebriated Lohan, and a public battle in the press with her family cast a dramatic pall over a once promising career, causing friends, family and fans to eventually fear not only for her career, but for her life.

Notes

Lohan has her own website at www.llrocks.com

"I'll probably pursue doing more movies, but not horror or movies with killers in them. I'll try to stick to happy movies. I want to act and direct like Jodie Foster. I admire her because she went to college and she's still doing the same thing." --Lindsay Lohan quoted in DAILY NEWS, July 22, 1998

Lohan was named one of People Magazine's 50 Most Beautiful People for 2004

"I'm 17, says Lohan. I'm learning, and I'd rather make my own mistakes and learn from them than have to be sheltered my whole life."---Lohan on her reputation in the media to People May 24, 2004

"I don't know what the Hollywood rules are exactly, but I know I don't like them."---Lohan to Interview June 2004

"I feel like a lot of the time the tabloids build you up just to take you down. I think it's because I'm 18, and I could go off the deep end, and they could make up rumors about me doing drugs and going crazy and never acting again. Or I could prove myself and mature into an actor."---Lohan quoted to GQ, October 2004.

"In a way I think it's cool that people want to know about me. But in another it's weird because they don't get the full story anyway."---Lohan to Movieline's Hollywood life, May/June 2005.
