Lindsay Lohan got her showbiz start on soap operas such as "Guiding Light" and "Another World," but quickly became a household name after she was cast in projects such as "The Parent Trap," "Mean Girls," and "Freaky Friday." Lohan's fame skyrocketed and she became one of the most popular young stars in Hollywood, but her fame came with a price as the media never seemed to shy away from reporting on the good, the bad, and the ugly details of the actor's private life.


In addition to her movie career, Lohan also grabbed attention for her singing chops, releasing the album "Speak" in 2004, followed by "A Little More Personal (Raw)" in 2005. The albums debuted songs such as "Rumors," "Confessions of a Broken Heart," "Over," and more. At the time, Lohan was grouped into a young Hollywood pop culture scene that included names such as Britney Spears, Ashlee Simpson, Paris Hilton, and Hilary Duff. However, as her fame grew, so did the drama surrounding her and the media coverage of nearly every aspect of her personal life.

Over the years, Lohan has suffered a lot of ups and downs and moved through tragedy before finding some light at the end of the tunnel. However, it was a long road to get there.

Although Lindsay Lohan proved to be a talented actress and singer, she ultimately became well-known for her legal troubles. As a young Hollywood star, Lohan began to struggle with substance abuse and she was arrested several times, leading to years of legal issues, jail time, and court appearances. Lohan's first arrest came in May 2007 when she was charged with DUI, drug possession, and a hit-and-run in Beverly Hills. Just a couple of months later, she was arrested once again for DUI and drug possession, per CNN.


In 2010, she was arrested when she failed to show up for a court hearing, but posted bail. The following year she made headlines when she was arrested for stealing a necklace, and in 2012 she was taken into custody yet again when she was allegedly involved in a hit-and-run accident and later for assault. In 2013 she was arrested for reckless driving. She was arrested a total of 7 times between 2007 and 2013 and served a limited amount of time in jail and 35 days of house arrest. She was also sentenced to probation for eight years during that time.

After her final arrest, Lohan told Piers Morgan that she learned from her troubled past. "I believe things happen for a reason," she said (via Daily Mail). "I live without regrets. There are certain things I have done, mistakes that I made, that I would change, but I don't regret them at all, because I've learned from them."

Over the years, Lindsay Lohan's struggles with drugs and alcohol have sent her to rehab on several occasions. Lohan's first trip to rehab came in 2007 when she was just 21 years old, per Daily Beast. She voluntarily checked herself into a Los Angeles treatment center, where she stayed for 30 days. A few months later she was back in rehab after her DUI arrest. She completed a 45-day program in Malibu before being released and forced to wear an alcohol and drug monitor. Just weeks later, she was back in rehab after being found with cocaine. This time she opted for a Utah treatment center. "I very much want to be healthy and gain control of my life and career and have asked for medical help in doing so," she said at the time (via ABC News).


Lohan went back to rehab in July 2010 but was released early when she was seemingly misdiagnosed with mental health concerns. Sadly, less than a month later she returned to rehab after she failed a court-ordered drug test. She checked into the famed Betty Ford Center where she stayed for more than three months. Her sixth rehab stay came in June 2012 when she received treatment at the Cliffside Malibu Center.

In 2014, Lohan talked to David Letterman about her sobriety and revealed she was doing well. "My life is in a good place," she stated.

The actor also admitted to Andy Cohen on "Watch What Happens Live" that she believes someone took a photo of the list while she was moving and later sold it to the tabloid.

"You know what, I'm going to get serious for a second . . . That was actually my fifth step in AA at Betty Ford," she said. "And someone, when I was moving during the OWN show, must have taken a photo of it. So that's a really personal thing, and it's really unfortunate," Lohan added.

Meanwhile, the "I Know Who Killed Me Star" has also spoken out about her father's behavior toward her.


"My father is known for talking to the press and selling stories," she previously told Daily Mail. "He loves the attention. In the past he's said I've done drugs, he put my number on the internet. Who does that? Some of the stuff he's done proves to me he doesn't care about me," she added. In 2010, Lohan admitted that she was forced to grow up too fastbecause of the things her father subjected her to.
