8 reasons we’re still rooting for Lindsay Lohan

She could still turn it around! Right? RIGHT?

A LONG BANK holiday weekend like this is perfect for watching family films, and one of those on offer from our TVs this weekend is 2003′s Freaky Friday, starring Lindsay Lohan and Jamie Lee Curtis.

The thing is, it’s difficult to enjoy films like this these days, with Lindsay Lohan all over the papers, magazines and news for all the wrong reasons.

However, we haven’t given up on her.  Here are eight reasons we’re still rooting for Lindsay Lohan.

Because once upon a time she looked like this

Because she wasn’t just cute she was smart and charming


Because she co-directed this heartbreaking video for her song Confessions of a Broken Heart

Her family is really messed up.


Because she was amazing in Mean Girls

Look at her having the craic with Amy Poehler and Tina Fey!  She was fun!  She was alive!

Because she used to be in magazines for the right reasons


Because she was great when she hosted the MTV Movie Awards in 2004


Because Meryl Streep is praying for her

They worked together on a Prairie Home Companion, and Meryl said on Bravo television that she prays for her.  We reckon having the Streeper in your corner counts for a lot.
