Lindsay Lohan: Snapshot

Lindsay Lohan
Date of Birth
July 02, 1986
Birth Place
New York City, N.Y.
Praised by Meryl Streep and compared to screen legend Diane Keaton, Lindsay Lohan declared at 20 that she wanted to win an Oscar by 30. Instead, by 24, she completed numerous stints in rehab and was arrested for driving under the influence twice.

As a freckled-faced youngster, Lohan delighted Disney audiences with her dual roles in The Parent Trap, and kept the family friendly hits coming with Freaky Friday, Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen and the 2004 teen blockbuster Mean Girls. But the burgeoning It Girl soon ditched her PG-persona in pursuit of a fast-track lifestyle, which tarnished her work reputation and halted her promising career.

In between multiple stints in rehab, Lohan attempts to rebuild her career with roles in the TV movie "Liz & Dick" and video on demand film The Canyons. The actress went on to do a not-so-flattering documentary series on Oprah Winfrey's OWN network, where she revealed that she had suffered a miscarriage.
