So she had a lesbian phase and a crackhead one too but I think she's still pretty hot. Do you think she could act her way out of a wet paper bag? I think the only film I ever saw her in was Mean Girls which was great because of the writer Tina Fey. Anyways, what do you think of Lohan?
Well, if I must: she's a has been. She had a good thing going on until Freaky Friday. After that, I consider that her career as an actress and as a singer has gone down the drain. She can make a comeback, but she's gonna have to work very hard.

Lindsay is what I call a successful failure in her current phase of her career. She is successful because she has a good lawyer and she can get away with things (and knows it), she can do things (crime) without consequence, she has been and most likely is still a hard and fast living person and has a grandiose sense of herself, (she says she deserves Oscars and will earn them). Another asset is that she despite her aged facial complexion and chain smoking habit is that she is hot by most people, she has a nice rack, red hair, raspy voice, a good height and though her ass is flat, her boobs and general stature compensate for that. Even though she still gets acting jobs, models for magazines, goes to major parties and celebrity events she will never revive the legitimacy of her prior movie success that she had had in "The Parent Trap" and "Mean Girls", even though Lindsay believes her best days are ahead and I guess who can blame her with all that she had gotten away with and with things that are still available to her, she will never revive her prior success, she will get movie rolls and TV rolls like in Glee but that is it, what she does in film may likely be poorly reviewed and worst of all she has lost legitimacy with most moviegoers, thats where she fails.

Really really. Don't bother posting if you don't have an opinion. This thread topic was made quite popular by Concordeboy many many moons a go. I subjected myself to Mean Girls tonight and got to thinking she is still pretty hot. Case in point.

The answer to "what do you think of Lindsey Lohan" can easily be answered with two words; not much !
As the rules indicate that one line posts are probably not "worth much"...........I'll be a bit more specific as to why I say that;
I may be "ancient" by many people's yardstick, but I still appreciate good looking women as much as the next guy; that is, until they start making a career out of acting like idiots in public; anyone who acts like an idiot in public, I have no use for, whether they are female, male, "hot", "famous", or whatever. I put L.L. into the same class as a few more well known idiots, such as.............Charley Sheen, Paris Hilton, Alec Baldwin, Sean Penn, and all the rest of the schmucks who think because they have "big bucks", they are "above" the rest of humanity. Guess what.........ask you question again in 20 years, and 98% of the answers will be, "who the hell is that" ? In the proverbial grand scheme of things, extremely few so-called "movie stars" will be remembered more than a generation or two, at best.
But as long as there are people, they'll still be talking about Einstein, Archimedes, John Wayne, (and probably even Clint Eastwood ! (That oughta be enough to make me legal) (and Bob Hope)

I think she's pretty close to the definition of a celebrity, which is someone who is famous for being known without having much in the way of talent to back it up, but always comes with a large sprinkling of hotness and the ability to have private videos leaked on the innerweb. Paris Hilton is one, Kim Kardashian another.
Don't have any time for celebrities or celebrity culture, so I think very little of Miss Lohan or any of her ilk, but that certainly doesn't mean I wouldn't shag her or, preferably, all of them silly given half a chance.

Quoting einsteinboricua (Reply 1): Well, if I must: she's a has been. She had a good thing going on until Freaky Friday. After that, I consider that her career as an actress and as a singer has gone down the drain.
Check out: A Prairie Home Companion (dir. Robert Altman), a very good ensemble production. LiLo held it together for that one and I for one, possibly being fooled, think she can act. But more below.
Quoting 2707200X (Reply 2): Lindsay is what I call a successful failure in her current phase of her career. She is successful because she has a good lawyer and she can get away with things (and knows it), she can do things (crime) without consequence, she has been and most likely is still a hard and fast living person and has a grandiose sense of herself, (she says she deserves Oscars and will earn them).
Agreed. LiLo to me displays a lot of narcissistic behaviours, basically "Look at me, look at me" type things - drugs, public drunkeness, over the top statements about herself, and so on. Not saying she has to be perfect, and all of us can/should look in the mirror from time to time and ask if we have ever done similar.
That said, she has displayed streaks of acting talent (Mean Girls and Prairie Home Companion standing out, to me) so she should be able to continue to land parts. I don't think she has the stones to carry a movie, but if she can get squared away mentally that there is a life being a supporting actress (Diane Wiest comes to mind, 2 Oscars) then she can still salvage her career and/or life.
Forget about being a cover girl and/or full-time model, face looks fairly worn at 25. What living hard will do to you. Reminds me of a line a friend told me, who attended the Gretzky/Jones wedding many moons ago: "she's got a lot of miles on her".
If she can't get a grip on her behaviour then I think a Whitney Houston end might be in store.
Unfortunately I think you are right. It is just sad to see someone so young destroy their life and their future.
Quoting B777LRF (Reply 8): without having much in the way of talent to back it up,
She has a fair amount of acting talent. The roles I've seen her in - mostly she does very well. Even in Mean Girls - though a great script helps tremendously - bad acting cannot be covered up completely.
Remember Glen Cambell's line "People ask if I've ever acted. I say No. And I have two hours of film to prove it."
Quoting B777LRF (Reply 8): Paris Hilton is one, Kim Kardashian another.
Those two have some real talent - in promoting themselves. Lohan doesn't come close to their ability. Also that pair have strong support from family who help them build their 'personal brand'. Lohan's family on the other hand only sees her as a golden goose.
Quoting connies4ever (Reply 11): If she can't get a grip on her behaviour then I think a Whitney Houston end might be in store.
I'm thinking more of an Amy Winehouse end than Whitney. Lohan is 25 - two more years. Unless she changes her behavior drastically - she'll never last into her 40s.
Lindsay is just another of so many talented young people who get caught up in the "Never Say No" world of celebrities, and like so many others, will probably die very young, or end up drugged out and abandoned when the money runs out.
This is not a new story. It has been happening in Hollywood for 80 years, and before on the stage.

She is another cautionary tale of being a child/teen performer. She has poorly grounded and troubled parents with their own serious issues including alcohol abuse, a need of attention and greed. Even when well below the age of 21, she was illegally being served alcohol at licensed clubs. She hung around other older and celebs types who encouraged bad behaviors and rarely got caught. The Los Angeles area is very reluctant to enforce laws as to celebs like her fearful of chasing out their money from the area. She also has to deal with the paparazzi looking at her all the time for any stupid behavior. She never learned to live a 'normal' life growing up.
I would also suspect she has underlying psychological and mental health issues including a propensity for addictive behaviors. Yes, she does have a certain sexy attractiveness and some acting skills, but her erratic behavior cannot be ignored in our Internet era. That means she won't get much in the way of serious acting opportunities as doesn't offset them with being able to bring in enough box office money.
I suspect she will be either be dead or 'find God' in a few years.

She already has one problem which makes good acting roles almost impossible to find
Movie and television production companies have taken out insurance on their 'stars' for each film for a long, long time (back to the 30s).
The insurance is to offset the losses if they get into a film, and something happens to the star. Thus a 20 million dollar film budget would be wasted if a star were injured or killed or for other realsons unable to do the acting necessary to finish the movie.
Lohan has already lost at least a reported dozen film roles because there is not an insurance company serving the Hollywood market that will insure a production company against losses if she were to fail to complete the filming.

I think if she continues on her present course by the time she's forty she's going to look like hell. Assuming she lives that long. Even though she's only in her mid twenties she looks like someone fifteen- twenty years older. Another case of talent wasted.

All her problems aside:
She could have been a very successful actress. Her latest works I really liked were "Prairie Home Companion" and "Georgia Rule." In both instances, she was a great lead/supporting actress and if she'd just lay off the drugs she'd be going places. In "Georgia Rule" she was pretty much spot on, then again, it's hard not to be spot on when you are practically portraying yourself.
The flippant attitude she has is a classic symptom of drug use, and not necessarily who she really is. She needs a good year clean time before one can really make accurate judgments about her character. Drug use is really hard to come out of for most people who find themselves in that position.

She is still a hottie, and even if she was not famous, well you know!
I don't judge people, I cannot imagine what it is like to go through your teens, in the Hollywood environment? You are suddenly famous, have money, your parents are cashing in on you, everyone is kissing your ass, everyone watches everything you do in the press, the insecurity of knowing it will end one day, and you have no other skills. How many actors are recognizable that do not get work anymore, and have to go get a job at the mall; that would be pretty humiliating?
I understand there are millions of people in the world with greater problems, but we all deal with things in our own way. I wish the best for the girl, and hope that she gets her life back together, on whatever level it may be.

She's a bright and good looking person but she has no class. Scarlett Johansson, on the other hand, does have it. One of them earns respect as she goes through life, and the other one loses it. From the American public! We don't ask for much.

I always thought she was and still is hot. Yes, she's had her issues with the law but at least she hasn't gotten knocked up and had a litter of bastard babies with different boyfriends (celebutarts getting knocked up and unmarried a big Hollywierd trend and actually promoted and trumpeted by the trash entertainment media. She was saddled with a loser set of parental units which doesn't help matters much. She has a chance to turn things around and avoid crashing and burning. Sadly if she meets her maker prematurely they won't lionize her and elevate her to saint hood like they did with Michael I like boys Jackson and Whitney, my singing was mediocre and over the top Houston.
