Lindsay Lohan holds a special place in my heart like many of my favorite former childhood actresses. I mean, I can’t name the amount of iconic movies she’s starred in on just my two hands if I tried.
But if you need a refresher, I’m happy to list a few of the best movies she’s been in—*ahem*—The Parent Trap, Freaky Friday, Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen, and Mean Girls, for instance.
Since she’s been acting since she was three (yes, three) years old, you can imagine that her career has been, well, long. At 36, her net worth has taken a little bit of a roller coaster ride amid her arrests and legal troubles.
But now, the recently married actress is thriving, living in Dubai, and making her return to acting. Ahead, learn about Lindsay’s ups and downs with her net worth, and what made her the most money.
Making Movies Has Come In, Um, Clutch For Lindsay.
She made nearly $28 million from movie salaries alone, according to Celebrity Net Worth. Want exact numbers? For Freaky Friday (2003), she took home $550,000, while she made $1 million each from Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen (2004) and Mean Girls (2004).
But then things really kicked up a notch—she made $7.5 million each from Herbie Fully Loaded (2005), Just My Luck (2006) and Georgia Rule (2007). You go, LiLo!
By the 2010s, Lindsay was making a little less, due to the media highlighting her personal life and struggles, which affected how much she made. She made $300,000 for Liz & Dick (2012), $200,000 for Scary Movie 5 (2013), and $6,480 for The Canyons (2013).
She Became A Big Spender.
In 2012, the Mean Girls actress rented a Beverly Hills mansion for $8,000 per month, while some of her other expenses were a $40,000 tanning salon bill, a $90,000 limo company bill, a $144,000 storage locker bill, and a $46,000 hotel bill from Chateau Marmont, per Celebrity Net Worth.
She also bought a Porsche for $80,000 and gifted her mom $40,000 to prevent their house on Long Island from going into foreclosure. She was also arrested multiple times and has spent almost $300,000 in attorney fees, the outlet reports.
By 2011, Lindsay Was Almost Bankrupt.
She earned some more cash—$1 million, to be exact—by posing nude for Playboy in October of that year, before the IRS took control of her bank accounts in December 2012, per Celebrity Net Worth. By doing so, they forced her to pay back the $233,000 she owned in federal taxes that she forgot to pay for the 2009-2010 year, as reported by the outlet.
In March 2014, she made $2 million alone from filming some interviews with Oprah Winfrey for the Lindsay docuseries, which was put away for taxes, rehab fees, and IRS debt, the outlet reports.
She got into real estate.
Yeah, you read that correctly. Lindsay got involved in two different resorts in Greece: one in Mykonos in May 2018 called “Lohan Beach House Mykonos” and the second in Ialysos Beach, Rhodes called “Lohan Beach House Rhodes.” In July 2018, she inked a deal with MTV to star in her own series, Lindsay Lohan’s Beach Club, about her business ventures, which premiered in January 2019. It was canceled after one season.
Today, Lohan Beach House Mykonos is still thriving. Lohan Beach House Rhodes, however, seems to be closed.
She recently married a financier.
Her new hubby is Bader Shammas, a Dubai-based financier. He currently works as the Assistant Vice President at banking firm Credit Suisse. His exact net worth is still TBD, however, some outlets report that it’s around $100 million.
Today, Lindsay still has a high net worth.
She’s worth $1.5 million (and counting), to be exact, according to Celebrity Net Worth.
It’ll surely grow as she continues with her podcast, The Lohdown With Lindsay Lohan, which she started dropping episodes in April 2022.
She also has had a two-picture deal with Netflix, per Deadline, and is starring in the upcoming Netflix holiday romantic comedy film, Falling For Christmas, which I, for one, cannot wait to see.
Plus, she’s already partnered with Allbirds and posted the collab on Instagram, which I suspect will continue in the future.
