Films: 'Mean Girls' cemented her status in Hollywood, addiction eroded it
Lohan catapulted to fame after starring in the 1998 reboot of The Parent Trap. She was just 11 then. After this, she did many hit films like Freaky Friday, Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen, and Mean Girls, which cemented Lohan's status as an A-list star, and made her a household name in Hollywood. But her drugs and alcohol addiction snatched it all away.

To get away from the media circus around her and get a fresh start, Lohan even moved abroad in 2014 and lived in Europe and UAE. After possibly reassembling her life, she wanted to return to celluloid, a wish she had expressed in 2019 on CNN's New Year's Eve special. "(I want to) come back to America and start filming again," Lohan had shared.
