See Lindsay Lohan’s Epic Transformation From Child Star and Legal Troubles to Comeback Queen

She’s come a long way! Lindsay Lohan first started as a child actress in The Parent Trap. Over the years, she became known for her friendship with Paris Hilton and made headlines for her legal troubles, which landed her in jail. The Mean Girls actress then moved out of the country and became a club owner in Mykonos, Greece, which was documented on the reality show Lindsay Lohan’s Beach Club. It seems as though she’s really found herself in recent years with a career comeback.

In March 2020, she made her long-awaited return to music. “I’m back!” she declared on Instagram at the time. The next day, she dropped her first single in more than a decade. The track was called “Back to Me” and was about the New Yorker confronting and coming to terms with her tumultuous past.

“My life is full of ripped up pages / I’ve been weak, contagious / But I’m comin’ back, I’m comin’ back to me,” one verse reads. “Oh, but I know that everything changes / Hard things turn to basics / Now I’m comin’ back, I’m comin’ back to me.”

In April of the same year, she shared a silly video on Instagram as she practiced getting back into gear to promote her new project. “Practice makes perfect,” she joked in the caption. The following week, she issued a “Back to Me” challenge, which encouraged fans to get rid of the “BS” in their own lives and rediscover their genuine mindsets and hearts.

During an April 202 interview with comedian David Spade, LiLo shared more of what her life looks like living in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. “I first came here in 2008 when they just finished building the Atlantis [The Palm] hotel,” she explained. “I live here. … I have been here for about six years. But I go to New York a lot to see my family … and I was in London before this.”

She has remained close to her family, despite living overseas. Lindsay was bunking with her little sibling Aliana “Ali” Lohan at the time, and they were also working together. The experienced actress was helping manage her model baby sis, with hopes that their careers would eventually land them both back to the United States.

In May 2021, the announcement of Lindsay’s return to acting set the internet ablaze, as Netflix revealed she would be starring in an original holiday film set to premiere the following year. 

“Lindsay Lohan will star in a new romantic comedy about a newly engaged and spoiled hotel heiress who finds herself in the care of a handsome, blue-collar lodge owner and his precocious daughter after getting total amnesia in a skiing accident,” read a statement on the official Twitter account of the streaming service, which the actress retweeted with a string of red heart emojis. 

In November 2021, the streaming giant announced that Glee alum Chord Overstreet would play Lindsay’s love interest in the holiday movie, Falling for Christmas, with George Young, Jack Wagner and Olivia Perez rounding out the main cast.

That same month, Lindsay got engaged to her boyfriend, financier Bader Shammas, captioning a sweet snap of the pair on Instagram, “My love. My life. My family. My future. @bader.shammas #love 💍 11.11.21.”

The former child star expanded her career comeback in March 2022 when she signed a multi-movie deal with Netflix, and though the streaming service has yet to reveal any details about the upcoming movies, it says it is “thrilled” to continue working with Lindsay. 

“We’re so happy with our collaboration with Lindsay to date,” said Christina Rogers, Director of Original Independent Film at Netflix. “We look forward to bringing more of her films to our members around the world.”

As for Lilo’s personal life, she’s also in a great place since her 2022 marriage to her longtime love, Bader.
