A Look Back at Lindsay Lohan's Winding List of Roles
In The Canyons
, Lindsay Lohan's latest film, the 27-year-old New York native plays Tara, " a woman who could be a Hollywood climber but who really, maybe, just wants to survive. The boyfriend she's latched onto is suitable only on the surface: Christian (the adult-film performer James Deen) is an egotistical trust-fund kid who dabbles in producing horror movies." Lohan's latest role continues her path toward more adult roles--her tumultuous personal life notwithstanding. Here's a rearview look at the films of Lohan, from her time as a spunky child actor to break-out roles in movies like 2004's Mean Girls
to straight-to-TV (Liz and Dick
) and now indie fare. No matter how small the role, Lohan seems to always drawn attention -- from her defenders and gossip bloggers alike.
