Lindsay Morgan Lohan ( /ˈloʊ.ən/; born Lindsay Dee Lohan on July 2, 1986) is an American actress, fashion designer, model and recording artist. She began her career as a child fashion model when she was three. She was on the TV soap Another World for a year at the age of 10. At age 11, she made her motion picture debut in Disney's 1998 remake of The Parent Trap, a critical and commercial hit. She made two Disney TV movies, Life-Size in 2000 and Get a Clue in 2002. Her next major motion picture was Disney's Freaky Friday remake in 2003 which was a success at the box office and with critics. With Mean Girls in 2004, another critical and commercial success, she became a household name and a frequent target of paparazzi and tabloids. The two films earned her several MTV Movie Awards and Teen Choice Awards.
In 2004, Lohan's debut album as a recording artist was released, Speak, which went platinum. It was followed by A Little More Personal (Raw) in 2005 which was certified gold. The same year she starred in the Disney movie Herbie: Fully Loaded, another box office hit. In 2006 she received positive comments on her work in independent films including Robert Altman's A Prairie Home Companion and Emilio Estevez's Bobby. In 2007 two driving under the influence incidents led to Lohan being put on probation, and together with three visits to rehabilitation facilities caused the loss of several movie deals.
In 2008 and 2009, Lohan worked as a fashion model and released the clothing line 6126 Collection. Resuming her acting career, she appeared as a recurring guest star in the TV series Ugly Betty in 2008, and starred in the TV film Labor Pains in 2009. She had a part in Robert Rodriguez's 2010 feature film Machete. She spent much of 2010 and 2011 entangled in legal issues stemming from probation violations and a necklace theft. In 2012, her supervised probation was lifted and she did further TV work, including starring as Elizabeth Taylor in the TV-movie biography Liz & Dick.
