Lindsay Lohan's Comeback: Looking Back At Her Troubled Life In Hollywood

Lindsay Lohan is making a return in Hollywood. The 36-year-old actress featured in the Netflix holiday film "Falling for Christmas", which was released earlier this month. This is her first significant acting job in almost a decade. Lohan, a former child star, was one of Hollywood's reigning girls in the early 2000s before her promising career was derailed by a string of highly publicized legal problems and substance abuse issues.
Lindsay Lohan is no stranger to the spotlight. "For me, my whole life, acting is like riding a bicycle. It’s just in me," Lohan told the Hollywood Reporter last month. In "Falling for Christmas", Lohan plays spoiled hotel heiress Sierra Belmont, who is left with amnesia after a skiing accident. She is taken in by a kindhearted widower and local lodge owner Jake Russell (Chord Overstreet). In the days leading up to Christmas, Sierra finds herself falling in love with Jake and learning to embrace the simpler things in life.

While Lohan’s success in Hollywood continued with the release of Mean Girls in 2004, her issues began to overshadow her career. The “Confessions of a Broken Heart (Daughter to Father)” songstress appeared in court more than 20 times amid her substance abuse struggles from 2007 to 2012.
While reflecting on some of her darkest hours, Lohan revealed at the time that she had no regrets about her troubled past. “I got arrested for my first DUI when I was 20 and they found me with drugs,” Lohan told Piers Morgan in 2013. “And from then on the press was on me all the time. It was the first time I’d taken drugs; I was out in a club with people I shouldn’t have been with, took cocaine, and got in the car. It was so stupid”.
