See Lindsay Lohan Reveal How to Actually Pronounce Her Name

There has rarely been a time in the last several decades that Lindsay Lohan was not causing discussion in some way. Today is no exception, and like all Lohan-related matters, this one is a little weird. The star of The Parent Trap, Herbie: Fully Loaded, and Mean Girls recently joined the social media giant TikTok and posted a brief (even by TikTok standards) video just to let everyone know she had joined the social media platform. However, when the actor addressed the camera against the scenic background of what appears to be a generic city block, the pronunciation of her own last name made things a bit odd. That is because when she pronounced “Lohan,” she said it with the emphasis on the O, and did not stress the A. Say it out loud, give it a try. Feels weird, doesn’t it? Check out the video here: 

Lindsay Lohan began as a model at the age of three and shifted to acting in soap operas at the age of 10. After being cast in a dual role in the 1998 remake of Disney’s The Parent Trap (which she also made a self-referential TikTok about recently), she transitioned to more film roles like Freaky Friday and ​​Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen. Around the same time, she began a music career, releasing two albums that sold well but did not stick in the public memory. After the success of the high school movie classic Mean Girls, her image began to sour in the public eye. Lohan became notorious for clubbing and substance abuse. In many ways, her career and life mirrored that of her peers Britney Spears and Paris Hilton, all of whom received outlandishly intense examination and treatment by the media in the early 2000s. In recent years, the tide has begun to turn on that treatment, and there has been a series of documentaries and critical examinations of the time period, much prompted by the public outcry against Spears’ controversial conservatorship. 

In more recent years, Lindsay Lohan has attempted to stage a number of comebacks with varying degrees of success. She appeared in a number of middling films like Chapter 27 with Jared Leto, the psychological thriller I Know Who Killed Me (which tried to repeat the success of featuring Lohan in a dual role), and the notoriously campy Lifetime movie Liz & Dick. She has also done the requisite stints on reality TV with Lindsay and  Lindsay Lohan’s Beach Club. She also tried to get into the ever-controversial NFT game with a furry version of herself. She will also be starring in a Netflix holiday film called Christmas in Wonderland. A TikTok seems like a funny way to subtly let us know we have all been mispronouncing her name. But at this point, she has literally spent her entire life in the public eye. It’s kind of awkward knowing that we were all mispronouncing her name for this long. It feels like it would have if it turned out Lohan’s longtime frenemy Paris Hilton actually pronounced her name “Par-EE.” Now, that would be weird too.
