WE ARE FAMILY

Lohan, the oldest of four kids born to Dina, 41, and Michael, 44 (pictured in 2003), grew up on Long Island, where she was home-schooled from 11th grade on to accommodate her work. As for college, "It's definitely something I'm interested in," she says, but "I want to focus on (acting) because this is where I want my career to be."
