What is Lindsay Lohan's net worth and Salary?

Lindsay Lohan is an American actress, singer, songwriter, businesswoman, and producer who has a net worth of $2 million. As we detail in the next section below titled "Career Earnings," during her film career, Lindsay Lohan earned around $28 million from movie salaries.

Lindsay Lohan's introduction to the entertainment industry began at a young age, with her modeling for brands like Calvin Klein Kids and Abercrombie & Fitch. She also appeared in over 60 television commercials, including spots for Pizza Hut and Wendy's. This early exposure paved the way for her breakthrough role in the 1998 remake of "The Parent Trap," where she played dual roles. Her performance was widely praised, and this success led to a contract with Disney.

In the early 2000s, Lohan continued her ascent in Hollywood, starring in a series of successful teen movies. "Freaky Friday" (2003), where she acted alongside Jamie Lee Curtis, was a critical and commercial success. This was followed by another major hit, "Mean Girls" (2004), a teen comedy written by Tina Fey, which became a cultural phenomenon and further cemented Lohan's status as a teen idol.

However, as Lohan transitioned into adult roles, her career faced significant challenges. She encountered legal troubles and publicized personal issues, which overshadowed her acting career. Despite these setbacks, she continued to work in film and music. Her credits include "A Prairie Home Companion" (2006), "Bobby" (2006), and "Chapter 27" (2007). Lohan also ventured into music, releasing albums like "Speak" (2004) and "A Little More Personal (Raw)" (2005), which received mixed reviews but showed her versatility as a performer.

In the 2010s, Lohan's public image and personal struggles continued to dominate her narrative. She made several attempts at comebacks, with projects like the docu-series "Lindsay" (2014) and stage performances in London's West End production of "Speed-the-Plow" (2014).

Career Earnings

Lohan's career in show business began at just three years old, when she was discovered and signed by Ford Models. She modeled in advertising campaigns for brands like Abercrombie Kids and Calvin Klein Kids in addition to acting in commercials for Wendy's and Jell-O. Eventually she landed a role on the soap opera Another World in 1996, but that role was cut short after a year for what would be her really big break in the 1998 remake of The Parent Trap. At that point, she became part of the Disney machine, starring in two television movies before starring in another remake for the studio, Freaky Friday, alongside Jamie Lee Curtis, for which she pulled in $550,000 in 2003.

Lindsay Lohan's first big paycheck came from the 2003 comedy "Freaky Friday", for which she earned $500,000. Not bad considering she was just 17 years old at the time! Freaky Friday solidified Lindsay as a bonafide Hollywood star and landed her the starring role in 2004's "Confessions of Teenage Drama Queen" and a cool $1 million paycheck. Her big breakout role came later that year in Tina Fey's comedy "Mean Girls", for which she again received $1 million. Mean Girls would eventually gross $130 million worldwide and lead to Lindsay to a string of fresh roles like "Herbie Fully Loaded" and her biggest pay day of all time, when she earned $7.5 million for the 2006 movie "Just My Luck".

After earning a little more than $27 million from movie salaries alone, Lindsay is famous for leading an extremely expensive and controversial lifestyle. She has faced many legal and personal problems that have eaten up a huge percentage of her net worth. Prior to appearing in Playboy in October 2011, Lindsay Lohan was reportedly close to bankruptcy. She earned $1 million to pose nude for the men's magazine.

Her first seven figure salary came for starring in Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen in 2004, as well as Mean Girls that same year Рboth parts earning her a cool million bucks each. Just a year later, her earning power increased drastically, with a $7.5 million paycheck for yet another Disney remake, this one 2005's Herbie: Fully Loaded. While her movie career hit its peak she also continued modeling and even released a solo album entitled Speak at the tail end of 2004.

Lohan was able to secure two more $7.5 million movie star gigs: Just My Luck in 2006 and Georgia Rule in 2007. And this was when things started to go downhill for the multi-talented artist, with myriad financial, legal, and personal problems conspiring to eat away at her fortune and leave her close to bankruptcy. In 2011, she scored a high paying gig of another kind when she did a nude pictorial for Playboy magazine, for which she earned a million dollars, but the following year the IRS came down hard on her bank accounts owing to $233,000 in back taxes. That same year (2012), she was in another movie, Liz & Dick, for which she made $300,000 Рa tidy sum but nowhere near her standard fee from just a few years before. Her highest paying job in 2012, in fact, turned out to be a multi-part interview series with Oprah Winfrey, for which she made a reported $2 million (much of which went straight to the IRS as well as her high rehab fees and other debts).

In 2013 she filmed a cameo for the spoof comedy Scary Movie 5, but work is work and she got $200,000 for the part. That same year, she did a much more artistic, independent film project with director Paul Schrader, The Canyons, for which she earned a very artistic and independent $6,480.

In the 2024 "Mean Girls" musical, Lindsay earned $500,000 to make a cameo.

Financial Problems

One major problem with Lindsay's life choices is that as her paychecks dried up, her lifestyle did not slow down. Lindsay spent much of 2012 renting a Beverly Hills mansion that cost $8,000 per month. She somehow also to racked up a $40,000 bill at a tanning salon, a $90,000 bill at a Limousine company, a $144,000 storage locker bill and a $46,000 tab at luxury hotel Chateau Marmont. Lindsay purchased an $80,000 Porsche, gave her mom $40,000 to save their Long Island home from foreclosure and still managed to be seen partying around the world nearly every night. She also was arrested on numerous occasions (shoplifting, DUIs, etc) and has spent nearly $300,000 on attorney fees since 2010. Oh, and by the way, Lindsay forgot to pay $234,000 worth of taxes for 2009-2010.

Without any consistent income and plenty of outstanding debt, Lindsay posed nude in Playboy magazine in December 2011. She earned a $1 million paycheck for the spread which unfortunately barely kept her head above water.

In 2013 sources close to the actress reported that Lindsay was forced to move back in with her mom in Long Island because she did not have enough cash or credit to qualify for even a simple two bedroom apartment in Los Angeles. The source claimed that not only was Lindsay's credit horrible, she just simply did not have enough liquid funds that would be required for a first month, last month and security deposit. Considering an average two bedroom apartment in Los Angeles would cost roughly $2,500 per month to rent, that would imply that Lindsay Lohan didn't have $7500 to her name.

$1 Million Playboy Payday
