Happy 27th Birthday Lindsay Lohan! Here's Your Life In Pictures
GALLERY >> The Highs & Lows Of LiLo
From a child star cutie to being carted off to rehab, we've seen Lindsay Lohan go through many highs and lows in her career. The star turns 27 today and will be spending her birthday in the Betty Ford Clinic after she was sentenced to 90 days in rehab. Not ideal, we admit, but better than celebrating behind bars, right? So what better time than now to chart the highs and lows of our Li-Lo...
1. Child modelling
Little Lohan began her career as a child model with Ford Models at the tender age of three. Here she is with her pout on for Calvin Klein Kids. Doesn't she look sweet? If slightly psychotic.
2. The Parent Trap
She rose to fame in 1998 thanks to the brilliant Disney remake of The Parent Trap. She looked ridiculously cute and proved her acting talents by playing dual roles of estranged twins who try to reunite their long-divorced parents.
3. Mean Girls
Tina Fey's film redefined the teen-movie genre and gave us Rachel McAdams, Lizzy Caplan and Amanda Seyfried. Lindsay was brilliant as social guniea pig Cady Heron trying to fit into the world of girl.
4. Music moment
Cut to 2004 and LiLo decided to focus on her singing chops, signing a recording contract and releasing her debut album, Speak.
5. Getting flaky
James G. Robinson, a studio executive on teen film Georgia Rule, complained about Lindsay’s flaky behaviour on set in a letter stating, ‘We are well aware that your ongoing all night heavy partying is the real reason for your “exhaustion”.’ Eeks, last thing you want your boss to say!
6. Car crash
In January 2007 Lindsay entered rehab and successfully complete a 30-day stay. Sadly, May saw her pick up a DUI when she lost control of her car while drunk. She again entered rehab, but soon after failed a sobriety test. She served 84 minutes in jail, was sentenced to ten days community service and was ordered to attend an alcohol education programme; all in one eventful summer.
7. Releasing her inner stripper
The horror flick saw Lindsay star as a stripper with a split personality (obvs) and opened to dismal reviews. It won Lindsay both first and second place in the in the worst actress category at the Golden Raspberries.
8. A fashion venture
Lindsay’s fashion line 6126 launched in 2008 and is now sold all over America and in some international stores. Her line with Estrella Arch for Emanuel Ungaro in 2009 however, was less successful. The New York Times reported onlookers at the show in Paris Fashion Week were 'aghast' at the heart-shaped pastiches covering the models' nipples. WWD called it ‘an embarrassment’. Awkward.
9. Dating Samantha Ronson
How cute were these two?! Mark Ronson’s big sis and Li-lo weren’t exactly a match made in heaven-very public barneys all over LA became commonplace-but they did keep us entertained!
10. More Jail Time
After missing AA meetings and educational classes as per her court agreement, Lindsay was sentenced to 90 days in jail then 90 days in rehab. She left jail after 23 days, and rehab after 14.
11. ...and then theft
After being charged with the theft of a necklace in 2011, Lindsay was sentence to 120 days in jail and 480 hours of community service. She was released early before being incarcerated again for violating her probation.
12. Hello Playboy!
Jan 2012 saw Li-Lo grace the front cover of Playboy dressed (or undressed) as Marylin Monroe. She looked fabulous-better than she’d looked in years-but was this female empowerment or another stumble on the way down? You choose.
13. Dina Lohan does Dr. Phil
In a bizarre interview earlier this month, the American chat show host grilled a distressed Dina Lohan about Lindsay’s problems. Dina’s confusion and anger caused Li-Lo take to Twitter to blast Dr. Phil and defend her mom.
14. Liz and Dick
The pics from the set of Lindsay’s upcoming Lifetime film Liz and Dick which sees her play Elizabeth Taylor, look ah-mahh-zing. Fingers crossed means the beginning of the end of Li-Lo’s troubles.
15. Charlie Sheen gave her some love
In September 2012, Lohan filmed scenes for Scary Movie 5 alongside Charlie Sheen. Six months later and the actress guest starred as herself in an episode of Charlie's TV show, Anger Management.
And finally: another mug shot for the collection
Another month, another mug shot. In March 2013, Lindsay was sentenced to 90 days in rehab due to reckless driving and providing false information to a police officer. She was also signed up for 30 days of community service and 18 months of mandated psychotherapy. Here's hoping she'll be back to her best soon, eh?
