Lindsay Lohan has to complete a 90-day court-ordered rehab stint as part of a plea bargain from misdemeanor charges following a car crash in June 2012.
Lohan has been in the public spotlight since she was a toddler, and it hasn’t all been pretty.
The former child fashion model appeared on the soap opera "Another World" when she was 10, and she starred in a remake of Disney’s "The Parent Trap" when she was 11. "The Parent Trap" was followed by "Freaky Friday" in 2003, "Mean Girls" in 2004 and "Herbie: Fully Loaded" in 2005. She would host "Saturday Night Live" several times, the 2004 MTV Movie Awards and the 2006 World Music Awards. She also cut several critically acclaimed CDs.
Lohan recently appeared on Fox’s successful musical drama series "Glee" and FX’s "Anger Management." She also starred as Elizabeth Taylor in Lifetime’s production, "Liz & Dick."
Despite her troubles, or perhaps because of them, Lohan remains a target of paparazzi and has more than 6.5 million followers on Twitter.
