What the Hell Happened to Lindsay Lohan?

lindsay Lohan 2013

Lindsay Lohan isn’t just a train wreck.  She is a train that is perpetually wrecking.  It’s as though someone keeps rewinding the tape and replaying the same disaster over and over and over again.  The situation has gone from sad to funny and back again more times than I can count.  It’s hard to remember, but just ten years ago Lohan was the most promising actress in Hollywood.  She seemed poised for greatness.  On screen, she had a talent and composure beyond her years.  In reality, she was ill-equipped to deal with the pressures of her life.  Her public melt-down is in danger of lasting longer than her career.

What the hell happened?

Lindsay was the oldest of four children all of whom have been pushed into, I mean chosen a life in show business.  By now, most people are familiar with Lohan’s loving parents,  Dina and Michael Douglas Lohan, Sr.  Dina is known to have brought camera crews to film her visiting her daughter in rehab.  She also claims to be a former Rockette despite that no one at Radio City has any record of the claim.  Michael was a former Wall Street trader who was convicted of criminal contempt of court and sentenced to three years.  Since then, he’s been consistently in trouble with the law and in and out of rehab.  Guess that apple didn’t fall far from the tree.

It would be charitable to say that the Lohan clan is lead by deeply flawed people.  For now, I will leave it at that.

lohan - child model

Lindsay Lohan signed with the Ford Modeling Agency at the age of three.  How does a three-year-old sign a contract anyway?  My four-year-old can write her first name.  But something tells me that’s not legally binding.  I feel terribly guilty when I drop her off at daycare some times.  But her parents seemed okay with the head-trip of signing a contract with a modeling agency for their three-year-old.  Different parenting styles, I guess.

Lindsay Lohan and Mischa Barton

Here she is with a young Misha Barton in an ad for a clothing company called Caravan.

Lohan - Abercrombie Kids

Here she is in an ad for Abercrombie Kids at age 12.  I wonder how the two kids she has in a headlock are doing today?

lohan - calvin klein

And here’s Lohan’s serious face in an ad for Calvin Klein.

Lohan also appeared in tons of TV commercials like this grape J-ello commercial starring Bill Cosby:

Lohan - Another World

At the age of 10, Lohan started appearing on the daytime soap opera, Another World.  A soap magazine referred to her as a show biz veteran.  Here’s a clip:

She was the best actor in that scene.

Lohan - The Parent Trap

After a year in soaps, Lohan made the leap to the big screen in Nancy Meyers’ adaptation of the 1961 family comedy, The Parent Trap.

In the original, Haley Mills played a dual role as twins trying to reunite their divorced parents.  In the remake, the parents were played by Dennis Quaid and Natasha Richardson.  Lohan played the plotting twins.

The trailer actually ends with “… and introducing Lindsay Lohan”.  Disney had no idea what it was unleashing on the world.  Reviews for the remake were good and it became a surprise hit of the summer.


In 2000, Lohan appeared next to fellow model, Tyra Banks, in the TV movie, Life Size.  Lohan played a girl who brings her doll to life when she wishes to bring her late mother back to life.  Banks played a life-sized piece of animated plastic, so type casting.

I looked for a commercial for this movie, but I couldn’t find one.  You can watch the whole thing on YouTube if you are so inclined.  But after watching this painful clip of Banks lip-synching, I don’t think you will be inclined.

Disney is planning a sequel with Banks.  Presumably Lohan won’t be involved.

Next: Freaky Friday and Mean Girls

  1. midnight in pars was much different so was time travellers wife and she had alot of screentime in holmes almost much as law and downy jr her career is doing good not every actor can expect to have every leading role to be a hit not everyone is cruise hanks and ford supporting in successful movies are just as valid its better then doing leads in shit movies as long as there is alot of screen its good she is talented and doing since supporting roles dont mean lets take star wars away from ford


  2. your right they said downey would never make a comeback but he made it i remember a lot of people were pissed when they announced him for iron man but now when it came out nothing but praise goes to him same thing with rourke his career then boom back in a list with wrestler although to be he never reached a list until iron man most of films before iron flopped some critically acclaimed but never really an audience and is considered forgotten then iron man came all of sudden he was mister blockbuster and is now considered a draw but i doubt lohan can come back she was never a respected actress just a cute disney girl with no real acting chops once she got old the cute roles dried up and she wasnt talented enough for real roles before iron man downey was mocked for being a drug addict but was still considered a great actor even got an oscar nom too


  3. he was dumb to turn down hangover sure heathers role was short but maybe it would help branch lindsey a bit in adult roles


  4. The time traveler’s wife is her playing another sweet girl in a chick flick romance. And downey and law were onscreen in nearly every frame in sherlock holmes. Her name may follow them in the credits, but her screentime was nothing compared to them. I thought anyone could’ve played her part.


  5. she played it well and it success still helped her theres argument the sucess do sent count for law or downey since sherlock was already established franchisee people didnt see because of them watch family stone she was not sweet in that or a wanted man with exception of 2 well established franchise sherlock and iron man none of downeys movies made money


  6. i’m sorry, but no one went to see sherlock because of rachel mcadams. Like u said, it probably helped her career, but she was just lucky to be in it. U don’t have to like them, but law and downey are the whole movie. Sherlock and iron man may have been established before downey and both probably would’ve made money with another actor in the roles, but there’s no way robert downey did not add to the success of those movies. Tons of downey’s movies make money. tropic thunder made a lot of money and he was nominated for an oscar, so did due date. I’ve seen the family stone, yes, her character was a little different.


  7. iam sure her name got star power before sherlock holmes he was on verge of comeback with iron man but rachel was a big name of actress she had lots of hits before then most downys movies besides iron man dont make money tropic thunder was hit cause ben stillers silly comedies make money robert didnt carry it.due date was the only non franchise lead that made money however the plot was similar to hangover and zachs hangover success must of helped alot too rachel still has a better body of work then robert her career is doing fine iam sure they choose her for holmes cause of her star power


  8. Tropic thunder may have been a hit because of ben stiller, but robert downey got the oscar nomination. It’s just what u said about richard gere in primal fear. He was the star, the movie was a hit, but edward norton got the oscar nomination. Yes, i’m sure she was cast because of her name, don’t think the director would want to go with an unknown for her part, but rachel does not have star power at the box office. She’s been in a lot of hits, but they’ve been other people’s movies. The one time she was the lead, in morning glory, the movie flopped. Her character in holmes was important, but she was definitely not the reason people went to see the movie.


  9. only difference between primal and tropic is tropic made money primal did decent at best i forget he got nom for tropic primal dosent count as a hit for gere cause the only success it came from nom for norton tropic made alot of money primal didnt she was co lead in notebook she can carry a movie


  10. Primal fear made money, check boxofficemojo. And i’m not saying rachel can’t carry a movie, she’s better than a lot of young actresses out there, but she’s not the star of sherlock holmes. The movie’s called sherlock holmes, not irene adler.


  11. it still counts as a hit for her actually primial fear did ok it did decent it wasnt a smash only 4 of geres movies made alot of money those are office and gentleman pretty women runawa bride and chicago primal did decent it didnt make alot of money sherlocks holms did more for her career then primial did for gere


  12. Yes, it counts as a hit for her, but primal fear was definitely a hit for gere. Whether or not u get an oscar, if your movie makes 100 million at the box office, i’d call it a hit.


  13. primal fear didnt make that much only 4 of his movies made that much primal fear didn it did ok


  14. it made 56 millon in the states


  15. 102 million worldwide.


    • You’re looking at it the wrong way. 56 Million in today’s dollars at the box office is nothing; that would be a modest box office take today. In 1996, almost 20 years ago, 56M domestically was a solid box office hit. Keep in mind, in the mid 90’s Hollywood still considered $100M to be the magic number to cross to be considered a blockbuster, so if Primal Fear made $56M back then it wasn’t a blockbuster by any means but it was a respectable hit for Gere at that point.


  16. Very true


  17. iam pretty sure in 90s 100 millions was the magic number and 56 million would still be et average back then its budget was 50 million it made back its budget didnt double it


  18. rachles most wanted man is getting reviews while the judge is on the other end


  19. I’m sorry, im still wondering why u think rachel has more star power than robert downey jr?


  20. rachel has success in different genres most of downey success is from iron man


  21. All of rachel’s box office hits have been other people’s hits, she’s been the supporting role. Robert is an oscar nominee, one of the highest paid actors in hollywood, and the star of two successful franchises. There’s no way she has more star power; that’s like saying kate hudson has more star power.


  22. notebook was co lead with gosling people did not see iron or holmes for downey jr those were 2 established franchise look at the reviews her latest movie wanted man got better reviews the the judge which looks like crap http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/a_most_wanted_man/ http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/the_judge_2014/


  23. No one, and i mean no one, saw sherlock holmes for rachel! A movie of rachel’s getting better reviews does not mean more star power. Like it or not, downey is popular. Everyone saw iron man and holmes for downey, he’s the star and the title character. Those are his franchises. The one time rachel was the lead in morning glory, the movie flopped.


  24. If people didn’t see it for downey, then they probably were pretty disappointed, because he was in nearly every scene in both series. I think people were probably aware of that going in.


  25. but its like saying people say batman for keaton it was already established role the holmes movies made before downy was in it them iron man was popular comic book character downey had alot of flops before iron man he had more flops then rachel


  26. Again, rachel’s hits have been other people’s hits. She’s never the reason people went to see the movies. Channing tatum got most of the credit for the vow. her most memorable movie is still the notebook. Batman is a good example because remember when george clooney was batman? He was horrible, fans were upset, he never made another movie as batman. robert has played iron man in three movies, plus the avengers. He absolutely is part of the success of the series.


  27. but iron man would have been successful without him tobey was in 3 spiderman that made money is he an a list.when vow came out channing was still fairly new so rachel was bigger star


  28. This is gonna sound weird, but money and success is kind of different. george’s batman movie made money but it’s considered a disappointed and did damage to everyone’s careers. Iron man probably would’ve made money with another actor in the part, but robert is absolutely essential to the movie’s success, just like johnny depp with pirates. U think people went to see that because of orlando? Are u saying u don’t consider downey an a lister? He’s one of the biggest stars on the planet. Channing certainly wasn’t a new star, he was a new star when step up came out. I’ll admit rachel’s probably the better actor out of her and tatum, but he was a star then.


  29. he had 1 hit going for a rising star but not yet star rachel had a bucnh downey was not a draw before iron man he was not important part of success


  30. Step up, gi joe and dear john were all hits, they all had channing in them. 2012, when the vow came out, was probably the biggest year of his career with that, magic mike and 21 jump street. He was a huge star, probably thanks to teenage girls. Yes, iron man launched downey into superstardom which he hadn’t really experienced before that. U don’t have to like him, but it’s pretty ridiculous to say he contributes nothing to the success or iron man or holmes. Just because these things were established before he played them didn’t guarantee they were going to be a hit. Look at ryan reynolds in the green lantern, which bombed.


  31. but his name didnt bring people in to iron man most of his movies post iron man flopped solosit


  32. If his name didn’t bring people to iron man, they would not put it above the title. Yes, the soloist flopped, but that’s one movie, he got an oscar nomination for tropic thunder. just because the judge got a few bad reviews doesn’t mean it won’t be a hit. They might not have seen the first one for him, but they kept coming back and making the movies more successful. the third one made more than a billion dollars. Clearly fans love him in the role.


  33. it got 58 % on rotton tomatoes it got more then a few bad review it dosent look like the type of movie that bring huge numbers since its an indie


  34. That’s true, but sometimes an indie can be a modest success.


  35. true like Napoleon dynamite but we will have to wait see downy and duvall got amazing reviews for acting they could still score acting noms however when a movie bashed the academy idnores acting noms even if performances are good they make wide release since downey is still coming of the avengers success


  36. Let me know if it’s good if u see it at the festival


  37. I can see Miley Cyrus becoming the next Lindsay Lohan:

    I don’t think so. The Cyrus family seems (from what I know of looking at the cover of In Touch and People while waiting in line) like a solid, country-fried unit. That was Lohan’s problem; she has a s****y family and had no support system when she in trouble, everyone around her was enabling her drug and alcohol problems. I remember reading a Tina Fey interview a few years back and she was like “Lindsay, girl, please get your s*** together.”

    I guess I feel kinda bad for her (even though she’s rich and whatever) because she was just used as a money machine by her parents — her Dad even sued her at some point — and every tiny thing she does is picked over by “entertainment media”, like the entire world talks massive shit about her all over the internet and in print. That’s got to f***ing suck. And because this is how she grew up, she doesn’t know how else to live. I would kill myself.


    • Not to defend Lohan, but unlike Cyrus Lohan was once quite good at her chosen career path; The Parent Trap, Freaky Friday, and Mean Girls were all very good movies and she performed quite well in them. Furthermore I thought Lohan was legitimately smoking hot back in the day, while Cyrus was never as attractive in comparison. Cyrus wasn’t all that good before or after this train-wreck, she’s sort of like the musical version of Tara Reid.

      Lindsay Lohan>>>Miley Cyrus:

      I’m not sure how much of a decision they have in picking their projects or what projects are picked FOR them, but it’s gotta drive some of those younger actors crazy when they keep doing movies aimed at an audience that they’ve outgrown (or that’s outgrown THEM). I mean, when you’re talking about someone like Lohan, if you look at her work, she had a period of maybe a year or two where she was a really big deal, but then she kept doing the same bulls***, and it got really old. Meanwhile, you’ve got actresses like Dakota Fanning and Abigail Breslin who were doing movies early on that WEREN’T necessarily aimed at people their own age, and they’ve gone on to be perfectly sane people with no problems and careers that are likely to continue for quite some time. It might be a combination of people looking out for them and having parents that AREN’T sociopaths that does the trick. Jesus, Lohan’s parents have probably had more screen time in recent years than she has, and they are terrible, terrible people…

  39. Report: Tom Cruise and Lindsay Lohan Dating?


    Apparently, Tom Cruise may be exactly what Lindsay Lohan needs to save her struggling career, and she’s head over heels for the Risky Business star, reports Fox411.


  40. Good lord, I cannot believe that phony story is being posted here. I’ve never heard of anything more ridiculous in my life. I feel sorry for anyone who actually buys into that bull. It shouldn’t even be posted here as joke, it’s insulting to even put Tom’s name next to that trainwreck’s.

  43. EW’s ‘Mean Girls’ reunion: The cast looks back on the 2004 hit:

    One sure sign of a film’s legacy: Does it inspire its own holiday? If you happened to be anywhere near the Internet on Oct. 3, you probably noticed an outpouring of nostalgia for 2004’s Mean Girls. The reason? A throwaway line uttered by Lindsay Lohan’s Cady: “It’s October 3rd.” That may seem a pretty slim thread to hang an entire day on, but it’s indicative of the fervent fan base for this new-classic teen comedy. Written by Tina Fey and directed by Mark Waters (Vampire Academy), Mean Girls stars Lohan as a high school student at a new school who infiltrates the Plastics, »

    • The Casts Of “Mean Girls” And “Ghostbusters” Reunited And It Is Just Perfect:

      For its 10th anniversary, Entertainment Weekly finally got the Mean Girls cast back together! Oh, and they made an awesome Ghostbusters reunion happen too.


      • This is exactly the kind of reunion Ghostbusters should have. Not a sequel. This right here. Perfect.

        EW had a really interesting interview with Ernie Hudson about his love/hate relationship with the film.


        • I personally, wouldn’t have minded a proper third “Ghostbusters” movie (of course, the first one was always going to be a tough act to follow regardless), it’s just that they waited way too long (even before the passing of Harold Ramis). I wish that they would’ve done it back in the early to mid-90s (e.g. around the time that Dan Aykroyd cameod as Ray Stanz in “Casper” and/or when the “Extreme Ghostbusters” animated series came out).


          • I’m perfectly okay with it never happening. If Ghostbusters 2 taught us anything, it’s that some things are better left alone. You can’t hope to catch that lightning in a bottle twice.


            • I think the problem w/ “Ghostbusters 2″ is that Ivan Reitman, Harold Ramis, and Dan Aykroyd really didn’t bring anything new to the table. They pretty much redressed the script/basic plotline of the first movie. It was as if they didn’t want to rock the boat too much so they kept close to the formula that they felt worked. Another problem is that because of the success of the animated series (and because it was still in production at the time), a lot of the content or humor had to be toned down to make it more “kid-friendly”. What didn’t help is that Raimis and Aykroyd from my understanding, actually didn’t plan or envision “Ghostbusters” on being a franchise. In other words, they thought that the ending of the first movie was pretty stand-alone or neatly tied up. So the end result was that “Ghostbusters” basically hit the reset button by having the gang depicted as down on their luck underdogs again.


              • I agree with all of that. But I will add that the best parts of Ghostbusters were alchemy. The ingredients just came together. You can’t force that to happen a second time. They tried. And the end result is Murray looking bored while Aykroyd gets his rivers of slime.


        • The reunions are my favorite issues of Entertainment Weekly; heck I liked “Sports Night” back in the day. Yet, busting ALWAYS makes me feel good!


        • The photos just highlight even further how badly Lindsay Lohan has aged (due to her substance abuse issues/chronic hard partying combined w/ cosmetic procedures) in the past ten years when compared to her “Mean Girls” co-stars.


          • 9 Celebs Who Looked Better Before Plastic Surgery:

            1. Lindsay Lohan

            Lindsay Lohan may be totally unprofessional, a complete liar and an unapologetic party animal but, at one point, she had a really beautiful face. Around 2009, however, there was a sudden change and not one that can be attributed to hard living. The troubled star’s lips started to look plump and stiff; her cheeks appeared unnaturally full; and her forehead was suddenly unnaturally smooth. She obviously had work done – and it wasn’t even good work.

            The whole situation is really sad. Lohan wasn’t even in her 30s and she was already messing with something that was fine. If she felt like she looked unattractive before, she looks a lot worse now. She has become a dire warning for all young starlets. If they want to just have a good time and play with their faces, they might just end up with a career like Lohan’s and a face like hers too. If that doesn’t scare these starlets straight, we don’t know what will.


            • Celebrity plastic surgery before and after: Lindsay Lohan’s disaster:

              Lindsay Lohan is talented American model, actress. She was born in New York City on 2 July 1986. Her modeling career started when she was only three years old. When she was eleven, she got a role in the movie The Parent Trap. After her roles in the movies such as Freaky Friday and Mean Girls, she became really popular. She became a name that was so frequent in media, especially for paparazzi and tabloids. For years, Lindsay had serious problem with drugs and alcohol abuse and she needed to go to rehab. She did not finish rehab programs, and she was even in jail. All those situations made her even more interesting to the tabloids and paparazzi. Lindsay turned from one really cute and intelligent girl to very problematic and hard to work with girl. Her appearance also has changed a lot. So the rumors about Lindsay Lohan plastic surgery started, but truth to be told, no one was actually surprised.

              Apparently, Lindsay Lohan used to be a lovely girl. She had got a sweet smile, twinkle eyes. She was an idol of teenagers through family and teen movies.

              Fresh-faced Lindsay Lohan started out as a child model and rose to fame in Disney’s The Parent Trap.

              As soon as gossips about her plastic interventions started, there are a lot of Lindsay Lohan plastic surgery before and after videos and photos on Internet, and everyone really could realize the diferent on her. From cute and charming girl that everyone loved, her face seemed older. The celeb plastic surgery procedures did not really improved her looks, because she was no longer natural. The celeb plastic surgery included Lip injections, Facelift procedure, Breast implants.

              Plastic surgery made her look more “plastic”. Plastic surgeries have completely ruined that natural, girlie look she used to have before all the partying and cosmetic interventions that were supposed to refresh her and erase marks of all the drinking, possibly drugs and sleepless nights. When it comes to Lindsay Lohan lips it is obvious that they appear fuller and plump, but not in a natural way. Lip fillers have once again proved to be one bad choice, among several others. Lip fillers in her case have stretched her lips unnaturally, making her pout totally stand out, and not in a good way. Now, when it comes to facelifting procedure, it is evident that hers hasn’t been done properly, making her cheeks look unnaturally sharp and altered, even changing shape of her face. About her breasts, her breasts are bigger but they are really artificial.

              Although only 26, Lindsay Lohan looks older than her years following lip injections, botox, a rumored rhinoplasty and derma fillers in her cheeks.

              Celebrity plastic surgeon Dr. Garth Fisher gives Celebuzz his expert opinion on her appearance, after some have speculated she’s had plastic surgery. Dr. Fisher, is not her plastic surgeon and did not treat her. After seeing at the most current photos of the Hollywood celeb, particularly in very contrast to only several years ago or before 2006, he mentioned that it looks like Lindsay Lohan has had several work done.He says :“She looks like she has had an excessive amount of filler injected in her face,” , adding, “I’m not a fan.”

              Dr. Fisher also stated that seemingly she appears like she has had too much amount of filler injection on her face. He added that he does not really like it. He explained that dermal fillers are non-persistent, non-surgical injections applied in the lips, cheeks and beneath the eye. These can be applied to level out scars and in other parts to reform the surface look of the face. Juvederm was very well-known filler several years back, however, many doctors have begun using Radiesse to improve superficial shapes or soften facial furrows and crinkles because it tends to remain a bit longer. These also have a more excessive pleasure percentage amongst patients who got the plastic surgery.

              Lindsay Lohan is one among many younger Hollywood actresses that have chosen to improve her look artificially, but the celebrity plastic surgery was her bad luck. It also warn someone that sometimes plastic surgery can be a bad thing- especially when it becomes addictive.


  44. oBYTuary: Lindsay Lohan


    No “celebrities” were harmed in the writing of this column. Its purpose is to mourn the loss of their careers, status, and in all likelihood bank accounts. This is an homage to their life’s work, both well-received and utterly humiliating. I have the utmost respect for all of them, even if they no longer have respect for themselves.

    As far as I know Lindsay Lohan might actually be dead. Never has a star shined so bright and quickly, only to fall so hard…into jail…multiple times. Although who am I to criticize that? I’ve been to jail a few times myself. A night here, a night there, two weeks once with a girl who stabbed her boyfriend in the eye with the heel of her pump. That’s not the real problem here. What is the problem? Who knows. Both of her parents seemed to be pretty fabulously dysfunctional. They remind me of one of my favorite poems, by Philip Larkin: “This Be The Verse.”

    Genetics can be a cruel mistress. I speak from experience, but what Lohan had and I lacked is access to an endless supply of money and absolutely no one to stop her from abusing it. God that sounds great, doesn’t it? So what in the hell happened, she isn’t the first starlet to go bad, but she is doing a spectacular job of not digging herself out of it.

    In 1998 Lohan had her first role on the big screen in the remake of “The Parent Trap,” which also starred Dennis Quaid and Lohan as 2 girls. She was a cute, freckled red haired girl and no one even minded the fact that Haley Mills did a much better job of it over 25 years prior to the remake. She was only 12 years old. In Barrymore years that’s halfway to full-blown alcoholic but she managed to keep her shit together. This garnered her a 3 picture deal with Disney who we all know is the Evil Empire. Do not fuck with Disney.

    In 2003 she banged out another remake with Disney, “Freaky Friday,” alongside the Scream Queen Jamie Lee Curtis. I’m partial to the original because it starred a pre-Accused Jodi Foster who was a delightful Tom Boy in the film. In the 2003 version Lohan played a misunderstood youth in a band. Stop right there. Her 3 blond highlights weren’t selling it for me. The only legitimate angst in the film was the anxiety I felt while watching it. Apparently it got an 88% on Rotten Tomatoes but what does that site know. It gave “Back to the Future 2,” a 64%. Come on.

    In 2004 she starred in “Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen,” which probably hit closer to home for her. Frankly this movie made no sense to me. I saw it in theaters, sadly.

    She also starred in “Mean Girls” opposite amazing actors like Rachel McAdams, Lizzy Caplan, Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Tim Meadows and Amanda Seyfried. Tina Fey penned this wonderful modern-day Heathers and for that I am forever grateful…though honestly Caplan/McAdams and Seyfried stole the film. Lindsay was just a piece of cardboard.

    Between 2004 and 2006 Lohan somehow managed to host “Saturday Night Live” 3 times. Is she trying to break the Baldwin record? She did okay, in terms of former Disney stars she’s no Timberlake. Then she did that thing where she made an album. It did alright. I’ve literally never heard a song on it.

    Now I have. It’s not the worst thing in the world.

    After one more Disney reboot in 2005, “Herbie: Fully Loaded,” Lohan was finally free to take her money and almost literally set it on fire.

    She nailed it in “A Prairie Home Companion,” but things started to take a turn in 2007 when she was arrested for a DUI and police found cocaine on her, or in her. Whatever. Her arrest record is far too lengthy and fun to type out but please click on that link for all the good times.

    Let’s not forget her rocky relationship with Samantha Ronson, her bizarre fascination with Marilyn Monroe (a drug addict who died of an overdose, great role model!), her clothing line (what?), and the fact that when she offered to speak on Obama’s behalf during his 2008 election run he politely declined saying she was “not exactly the kind of high-profile star who would be a positive for us.” God I love him. Oh and remember that time she pulled a Winona and stole some jewelry? Or how about the time she “forgot about a court date” while at the Cannes film festival? And of course there is the failed film “Liz and Dick,” where she tried to play the role of Elizabeth Taylor. Oh really?

    In a recent court date for God knows what Lohan was offered 90 days of house arrest or rehab but guess what? She wants to start after Coachella. Hey Lindsay, I get it! My recent court date was the day before I left for SXSW and I told my lawyer to push for a jury trial so I could get more time to hang out and bang out in Austin, TX. We are kindred spirits!

    So, where does that leave her career-wise? Ummm, she’s played herself a few times and has had a recurring role on the aptly named show “Anger Management,” starring Charlie Sheen. Will we ever see our little LiLo again? Or will she continue to put the Freak back into Freaky Friday? Maybe she’s just stuck in her parents’ trap. Whatever the reason it would be nice to see her make a comeback, or just stop getting arrested.

    Lindsay Lohan may still see herself as an actress; however, the rest of us see her as more of an out of control has-been who still has delusions of grandeur. It has been a long while since she’s had a real acting opportunity in Hollywood and by long we mean about a decade. “Mean Girls” was pretty much as good as it will get for this troubled redhead. It has been nothing but DUIs, drug busts and one too many rehab stints ever since.

    In Hollywood (and the rest of the world), Lohan has a reputation for being irresponsible and untrustworthy. Things have progressed so poorly over the years that there are very few people in the industry who trust her enough to work with her. The troubled actress doesn’t get this though. She wants her career to be back where it was when she was commanding $7.5 million a movie,. Sorry, Lindsay, but it is way too late.


  46. Fox News responds to Lindsay and Dina Lohan’s defamation lawsuit:

    “We will defend this case to the fullest,” a Fox News spokesperson says of the cocaine allegation. “The remark about which Lindsay and Dina Lohan complain was made on live television by a guest nearly a year ago. We removed the segment from our archives altogether last February and also apologized on-air.”


  47. What am I missing here? Lindsay Lohan was never in The Time Traveler’s Wife or Sherlock Holmes…you are thinking of Rachel McAdams, not Lohan
