Lindsay Lohan

Lindsay's family name was originally pronounced LOW-han but, by 2005, the actress and her mother seemed to settle on LOW-en, suggesting a return to its European roots.

Lindsay is of Irish and Italian heritage.

Shortly after an apparent digital photograph of her California Driver's License was released on the Internet (after her card case was misplaced or stolen from a New York nightclub in 2004), Lindsay was asked her middle name by an audience member on the cable television show TEENick. She answered that it was originally (and, apparently, still is legally) Dee, but she later changed it to Morgan.

Lohan is involved in charity projects such as The Carol M. Baldwin Breast Cancer Foundation, Save the Children, The United Cerebral Palsy Association, and her own charity organization, Dream Come True.

Lohan has three younger siblings, Michael, Aliana ("Ali") and Dakota ("Cody"). Aliana is an aspiring model and actress.

Lohan's father, Michael Lohan, has had multiple problems with the law. In May of 2005, he was ordered to serve 1½ to 4 years in prison after pleading guilty to several charges, including aggravated unlicensed driving, attempted assault, and failure to pay a hotel bill. Michael Lohan begged for long-term alcohol rehabilitation, but was denied. He admitted to a drinking problem, saying he was being kept away from his children, but failed to address the reasons for the estrangement.

Lindsay Lohan's management has publicly suggested that she distance herself from her father because of his legal problems; still, on Father's Day, 2005, she told reporters, "I hope he's well. God bless him and I love him."

On June 1, 2005, Lohan suffered minor injuries in a car accident involving a paparazzo who was following her for a photograph. Police arrested the man after they determined that he hit her car intentionally.

Lindsay Lohan Says

Young Actress Lindsay Lohan has stated that she will never do nude scenes in films, like Jodie Foster and Julia Roberts.

The teenage star has admitted to wanting to do more adult roles, but said she would not bow to pressures and unwarranted demands to go nude for love scenes.

"You don't see Julia Roberts going naked or going against her natural beauty. She never has. And look at what a great body of work she has. The people I've always admired, like Jodie Foster and Julia Roberts, have not had to compromise themselves. Some day I'd like someone to say that about me," femalefirst quoted her as saying.

Lindsay has made the claim in several interviews, gaining the respect of many fans, while disappointing many onlookers. By the way, Jodie Foster has appeared nude in more than one film. To be fair, and hopeful for some, Miss Lohan did say, "unwarranted."
