Who Is Lindsay Lohan?
Lohan was born on July 2 in The Bronx, New York. She grew up in Long Island with her three younger siblings. She attended Cold Spring Harbor High School for three years but left so she could be homeschooled. Lohan started working as a model and then began appearing in commercials while she was young.
When she was just 10 years old, Lohan was cast as Alli Fowler in Another World. She was on the show for less than a year and ended up leaving after she landed the lead role in the remake of the beloved Disney film, The Parent Trap.
Lohan originally wanted to play the role of Regina George in Mean Girls and was about to do it, but the producers felt she was a better fit for Cady Heron. Though she was initially resistant, she ended up being OK with the decision. She was also offered the role of Jade in The Hangover, but she turned it down. Heather Graham ended up with the role.
Along with acting, Lohan has also tried her hand at a singing career. She has released two albums, Speak — which came out in 2004 — and A Little More Personal (Raw) — which was released in 2005. Speak actually sold over 1 million copies and featured her most famous song, Rumors.
