Biography Lindsay Lohan
Lindsay Dee Lohan (born July 2, 1986) is an American actress, model, and pop singer. Lohan was born on July 2, 1986 in New York City and grew up in Merrick and Cold Spring Harbor on Long Island in New York. She is the eldest child of Donata "Dina" (née Sullivan) and Michael Lohan. Lohan has three younger siblings, all of whom were child models. Lohan is of Irish and Italian heritage and was raised as a Catholic. Lohan attended public school on Long Island and was a cheerleader. She went to high school until grade 11 when she started homeschooling.
Lohan spoke in 2007 about her childhood: "I feel like a second parent in the sense that I helped raise my family." ... "I was put between my mother and father a lot. Well, I would put myself between them to try and keep the peace, and I felt good doing that." Despite the conflicts, Lohan calls herself "a family girl" and has spoken very fondly of her family, including her father. However, in 2007, 2008 and again in 2009 she stated that she was no longer in contact with him, describing his unpredictable behavior as hard to deal with.
Lohan has suffered from asthma since the age of two, but despite this she is a smoker as of 2008.
Lohan began her career with Ford Models at age three a child fashion model for magazine advertisements and television commercials, but found little work as a fashion model. She persisted and eventually appeared in more than 100 print-ads for companies like Toys "R" Us and fashion brands like Calvin Klein Kids and Abercrombie Kids. Lohan's first auditions for television work were not successful, she decided togive up her efforts if she did not get the job. She was hired, and went on to appear in over 60 commercials, what eventually resulted in getting roles in soap operas, and she was already considered a show-business veteran in 1996 when she landed the role of Alexandra "Alli" Fowler on Another World.
Lohan rose to stardom between 2003 and 2005 with leading roles in the films Freaky Friday, Mean Girls and Herbie: Fully Loaded. She subsequently appeared in independent movies like Robert Altman's A Prairie Home Companion and Bobby. Her career was interrupted in 2007 as two DUI incidents and three visits to rehabilitation facilities led to several lost movie deals. She guest starred in the TV series Ugly Betty in 2008 and filmed Robert Rodriguez's Machete in 2009.
Lohan launched a second career in pop music in 2004 with the album Speak and followed up with A Little More Personal (Raw) in 2005.
Lohan has a long-lasting admiration for Marilyn Monroe going back to when she saw Niagara during the The Parent Trap shoot. Aiming to become a triple threat-actor, singer and dancer-similar to Ann-Margret and Marilyn Monroe, Lohan began showcasing her singing talent through her films.Her debut album, Speak, was released in December 2004, and peaked at number four on the Billboard 200. By early 2005, it was certified Platinum. Though primarily a pop album, Speak was introduced with the single "Rumors". Its sexually suggestive video reached number one on MTV's Total Request Live and was nominated for Best Pop Video at the 2005 MTV Video Music Awards. "Rumors" eventually earned a Gold certification in America. The album spawned the second single "Over" and the third single "First", which was featured in Lohan's 2005 film Herbie: Fully Loaded.
In December 2005, her second album, A Little More Personal (Raw), debuted at number 20 on the Billboard 200 chart, but fell under the top 100 within six weeks. The album was certified Gold on January 18, 2006.
Following a switch to Universal Motown, Lohan began working on a third album in late 2007 and in May 2008 the song "Bossy" was released. In November 2008 she stated that work on the album had stalled and that she wanted to avoid the stress of working on movies and music at the same time.
In 2004, at age 17, Lohan became the youngest ever host of the MTV Movie Awards.Following Mean Girls, which was scripted by Tina Fey and featured several alumni of Saturday Night Live, Lohan was asked to host the show three times, in 2004, 2005 and 2006, when she also hosted the World Music Awards.
Lohan was voted #10 on the list of "100 Sexiest Women" by readers of FHM in 2005. Maxim placed her at #3 on its 2006 Hot 100 list, and at #1 in 2007. Lohan has been the face of Jill Stuart, Miu Miu, and Dooney and Bourke, as well as the 2008 Visa Swap UK fashion campaign. Lohan was also the face of Italian clothing company Fornarina for its Spring/Summer 2009 campaign.
In 2008 Lohan launched a leggings line, whose name 6126 represented Monroe's birth date (June 1, 1926).
