Ten years ago, everything was falling into place for Lindsay Lohan to transition from a child star, the freckle-faced kid from Disney movies like The Parent Trap, to a grown-up sex symbol who could star in comedies with cross-generational appeal like Mean Girls.

She’s remained a top target for the paparazzi, even as her film career has dissipated, with studios wary of trusting her with roles in major films. With her once-promising film career a distant memory, Lohan is now the star of her own reality show on OWN.
