Lindsay Lohan Hot Vids and Pics
Who is she?
"I don't want to have a drink and have someone whip out a camera phone and Disney getting it. It's not worth it! I don't want to risk my career for a night of having fun." -Lindsay Lohan
Lindsay Dee Lohan (born July 2, 1986) is an American actress and pop music singer. Lohan started in show business as a child fashion model for magazine ads and television commercials. At age ten, she began her acting career in a soap opera; at eleven, she made her motion picture debut by playing both twins in Disney's 1998 remake of The Parent Trap. Lohan's breakout role as a leading actress came six years later with 2004's Mean Girls, which shone the media spotlight on her professional and personal lives-including her nightlife and her parents' marital and legal struggles.
As an adult, Lohan began to take on more varied roles and projects, including Robert Altman's final film, A Prairie Home Companion. While filming Herbie: Fully Loaded in 2004, Lohan launched her career in music, recording and releasing her first studio album, Speak; her second album, A Little More Personal (Raw), was released in 2005.
Every generation has its share of emerging stars and Lindsay Lohan is proving to be just that. In only a few years, she has become an idol for teenage girls everywhere and a pinup for their male counterparts.

Early Years - The Child Star
Lindsay Morgan Lohan was born in New York City on July 2, 1986. Her mother Dina is a former Radio City "Rockette" while her father Michael was a long-time Wall Street trader before he struck it rich with a family pasta business. He has now redirected his energies into film development and producing.
Along with her three younger siblings, Michael, Aliana and Dakota, Lindsay was raised in Long Island. Lindsay was such a natural beauty that she began modeling at the age of 3. In fact, she was the first redheaded child ever signed by the renowned Ford Modeling Agency.
But Lindsay Lohan wasn't just a pretty child; she was also talented. Capitalizing on her flair for performing, she was cast in over 60 TV commercials for companies such as Abercrombie & Fitch, Wendy's, the Gap, Pizza Hut, Calvin Klein, and Jell-O, in which she shared the screen with Bill Cosby.
When she was 7, Lindsay was required to dress up as garbage for a Halloween skit on the Late Show with David Letterman called "Things You Find on the Bottom of the Subway." It was her first real acting job.
In 1996, Lindsay got her second big break when she was cast on the long-running NBC soap opera, Another World. For only one season, she became the third actress to portray Alexandra "Alli" Fowler.
Shortly after, she hit the highway to fame when Disney sought to remake the hugely successful family comedy, The Parent Trap (1961). There was a six-month casting search and in January 1997, Lindsay got a phone call from director Nancy Meyers to announce that she had received the role that Hayley Mills made popular in the early '60s.
In the 1998 version, Lindsay starred as estranged twin sisters Hallie Parker and Annie James, who meet for the first time while at summer camp and later devise a plan to make their parents fall in love again. Not only was it a blockbuster, but Lindsay also came away with a Young Artist Award for Leading Young Actress, which she shared with Jena Malone (Stepmom).
