Lindsay Lohan: biography
Scandalous and bold Lindsay Lohan is the brightest and rather sad example of what can happen with the child because of the glory. In all fairness, it is worth saying, that even adult and mature persons often don't withstand the trials of the copper pipe. What to say about the little girl whose parents began to make a star of her when she hardly turned three years.
At present Lindsay Lohan is not only a famous American model, a movie star, a singer and a designer. In recent time her name appears in the press more and more often in connection with new scandals. The girl tirelessly becomes the center of the scandals pleasing paparazzi or fans of "yellow" press who are looking forward to the sensational news.
The charismatic red-haired girl was born in New York in July 1986. She was a fidget and free spirit as well as many children. But her parents have recognized the future actress in their daughter. Her parents had resources that's why they decided to invest their money in the promotion of the future star. The head of the family Michael Lohan, who was a stockbroker, inherited multimillion "macaroni" business from his father. He sold his business and started to invest funds in independent Hollywood projects and his daughter.
Lindsay’s mother, Dina Lohan, a former dancer and member of "Radio City of "Rockette", is an artistic person and a gorgeous woman. In due time she tried herself as an actress. But she wasn’t successful in this sphere. She made up her mind to realize her dreams of big cinema in her baby Li-Lo. Since the age of 3, Dina took her daughter to different auditions and shootings.
A little girl with thick red braids and freckles was vibrant in all senses, and the representatives of the famous Ford model agency noticed her. Lindsay Lohan appeared in the commercials "Wendy's & Jell-O", "Gap" and "Pizza Hut". This way, people saw Li-Lo when she was just three years old. Insignificant commercials, she appeared together with the famous comedian Bill Cosby.
Until the age of ten, the girl has got more than 60 works in advertising in her asset. Lindsay received an offer to play the character of Alli Fowler in the popular series "Another World". She appeared in a couple of episodes, but the directors managed to pay attention to her. Red-haired Lindsay Lohan felt uninhibited in front of the cameras as Lindsay began her career at the age of three. From the first take, she did everything that the director demanded. She wasn't capricious and behaved like an adult actress.
At the age of 12 years, the cinematic career of Lindsay Lohan suddenly began to take-off. This accident happened after the release of the excellent family comedy "The Parent Trap" in which the young actress got two roles at once – she embodied the characters of the twins Hallie and Annie. It is remarkable that despite their similar appearance movie sisters had cardinally different traits of character.
The actress has played her role brilliantly, and after the comedy came out on the big screens in 1998, she became famous overnight. She was in a blaze of her glory and was happy with her first awards. She got the titles of "Breakthrough of the Year" and "Best Actress of the Year". She gave interviews and took part in the shootings for newspapers and magazines. And Walt Disney Pictures studio offered Lindsay Lohan the advantageous contract for the participation in three projects at once.
The mother of aspiring actress Dina Lohan, who already was a socialite at that time, began to coordinate all the contacts and her daughter’s working schedule. Lindsay’s career was taking off. Three other younger children of Dina – Michael, Aliana, and Dakota lacked their mother's care and attention. Though, Dina was patronizing Lindsay too much. Dina understood that her elder daughter was very talented and was a "profitable investment".
Dina Lohan filtered the flaw of the offers from the directors with skill and diligence to choose impressive and memorable roles. She at once rejected ordinary and boring works. This way, the daughter didn't spend her energy on secondary and low budget projects not to become a mediocre actress.
The melodramas "Anger Management" and "World Revolutions" have come out. These movies enhanced Lindsay Lohan in the status of the young star, and the audience remembered her. The girl got an invitation to the popular TV show about children’s health of children under the title – "Healthy Children". Li-Lo visited this show together with her mother and business manager.
Lindsay Lohan’s life wasn't that easy. Except for the numerous shootings and auditions she had to study. At first, her progress was rather good, and she even demonstrated remarkable abilities to the exact sciences. But her work in cinematography took all her time and at last Lohan have given preference to the movie industry.
Within the contract with Walt Disney's studio, the actress took part in high rate comedies as "Life-Size" where she appeared together with Tyra Banks, "Get a Clue" and "Freaky Friday". In the latter movie, she appeared on the shooting stage in the duet from Jamie Lee Curtis. This comedy directed by Mark Waters in which Li-Lo received the main role was the first commercial project of the aspiring actress. The audience could listen to Lindsay Lohan singing in this picture. She sang the song under the title "Ultimate".
The actress achieved the peak of glory after the premiere of "Mean Girls" in which Li-Lo has performed her last teenage role. This movie is a classical "school" comedy which tells the story of the teenage girl Cady and reveals the unpleasant truth about behind the scenes of the American school. It was the first time when Lohan met Rachel McAdams on the movie set.
Lindsay enriched her list of awards with one more MTV figurine for Best Actress. The same year 2004 the admirers of the actress saw their favorite actress in the fantastic comedy "Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen" where she acted together with prominent actors - Adam Garcia, Glenne Headley, and Megan Fox.
Later Lindsay received "adult" roles in serious projects. Lindsay Lohan who began to get comedy roles more often was dreaming of trying herself in another role for a long time. She had a burning desire to finish with the comedies after the failure of the next picture of the light genre under the title "Just My Luck".
Soon her dream came true. In 2006 Lindsay Lohan got the offer to play a role in the historical drama "Bobby" about Robert F. Kennedy’s shooting. A year later one more drama came out on the screen. It was a psychological thriller "Chapter 27" about John Lennon's murder. The actress received the role of Lennon’s fan who makes friends with his assassin.
Sharon Stone and Meryl Streep highly appreciated acting skills of Li-Lo in this movie. They told that "the girl was living a life in front of the cameras". Only the film crew knew how difficult it was to work with Lindsey Lohan, who was constantly being late and breaking the working schedule. In 2007 "Maxim" magazine entitled the actress the sexiest woman of the world and she headed the list of the most seductive women.
It seems that the comedy genre was pursuing the celebrity: during that period the actress took part in the humoristic comedy "A Prairie Home Companion" in which Meryl Streep and Kevin Kline performed the leading roles. The project was hugely successful, and Lindsay again began to love the comedy genre.
That’s why when the director Garry Marshall invited Lindsay Lohan to play a role in the comedy "Georgia Rule", the actress accepted his invitation at once.
