For the past nine years, we have watched the rise and fall of actress Lindsay Lohan, all the while rooting for her success.
It seems as if the troubled star could be back on the path to making a career comeback, so we wanted to take a look back and see how her appearance has changed with her many trials and tribulations. We've put together some of her best, worst, and most-memorable moments.

February 8, 2012
In New York for an amfAR benefit, Lohan looks as if she's trying to clean up her act. Just 21 days later, she tells Matt Lauer that the slew of drug busts, jail stints and theft charges made her realize that it's time for a change. "I could see where it could be scary for people to invest in me and I don't want people to have that reason to be scared anymore."
March 29, 2012
A month later, Lohan seems to be on the up and up. After a successful hosting gig on "Saturday Night Live," and despite years of court appearances and threats of jail time, Lohan leaves the Los Angeles Superior Court free from formal probation for the first time in four years. According to the Associated Press, "Lohan thanked Superior Court Judge Stephanie Sautner for her patience and let out a sigh of relief as she exited the courtroom after the brief hearing," She looks happy and healthy, and we are hopeful that perhaps her wild days are finally behind her...
June 8, 2012
But that doesn't last long. A few months later, Lohan makes news once again when her Porsche collides with a truck in California. Just a week after that, reports of Lohan being found unconscious are negated by her rep who tells E! news that she was merely in a deep sleep, exhausted form long hours on the set of "Liz and Dick." She later tweeted, "Note to self.. After working 85hours in 4days, and being up all night shooting, be very aware that you might pass out from exhaustion & 7 paramedics MIGHT show up @ your door.... Hopefully theyre cute. Otherwise it would be a real let down."
Will Life Imitate Art?
Lindsay Lohan will star as Hollywood legend Elizabeth Taylor in the Lifetime movie "Liz and Dick." We can't help but wonder if Lohan will be able to escape her wild ways, or if she will fall prey to the same tumultuous past as screen legend Taylor.
Despite her enthusiasm, many in the industry still doubt the 25-year-old can forgo her past erratic behavior. We want to know what you think. Could this role be the start of Lindsay Lohan's comeback?
