Lindsay Lohan is back on the front of glossy magazines almost 10 years after she starred in her last high-profile movie, The Canyons.
On Monday the former child star — who is best known for the films The Parent Trap and Mean Girls — looked elegant as she was seen on the cover of, shot by Jingyu Lin.
The 36-year-old siren is facing a comeback with the new romantic comedy Falling For which co-stars Chord Overstreet, but worries about the ‘pressure’ it comes with.

‘Whenever you slow down, you realize that every little thing can make you happy in a different way,’ Lohan shared with the magazine.
She moved from Los Angeles to Dubai eight years ago and acted only now and then. But last year she signed on for Falling For Christmas.
‘It’s hard to explain the rush of happiness that I got because I hadn’t done a movie in so long,’ she said as she told the writer she felt ‘grateful’ for her comeback.
And she chose Falling For Christmas specifically because it felt like the old Lohan. ‘I wanted to do something where people felt like I hadn’t left,’ she admitted.
‘You know a lot of people say «comeback» and stuff, and that puts a lot of pressure on the situation, and I’m not one that wants that attention.’
It was a strange return as films are made faster and cheaper these days.
‘The world of film now is just so different,’ Lohan shared. ‘You can put a blue screen up anywhere and make the backdrop anything, and as actors, our job is to imagine that we’re in that place, whereas with something like The Parent Trap, we shot in London. We shot in Napa. We shot in L.A. Everything is such a quicker process these days. Everything got sped up in a way,’ she adds.
And she also said she just loves being on set.

‘I love the routine. ‘I love my matcha latte, or now, I’ve switched to oat-milk coffee, which I feel fancy even saying.
‘I am that really cheery person every morning on set. I love greeting my crew and doing my own audio mic. And I always look forward to my short 30-minute lunch break. It just excites me.’
Singing may even be on the horizon. ‘I slowed down on the singing because my sister’s biggest passion in life is singing, and I really wanted her to have that path and didn’t want to distract from that at all,’ she shared. ‘I’ve done a ton of songs that are sitting, waiting. Maybe five years down the line, I’ll do another album.’
She was happy to be back on set: ‘I love the routine. ‘I love my matcha latte, or now, I’ve switched to oat-milk coffee, which I feel fancy even saying. ‘I am that really cheery person every morning on set. I love greeting my crew and doing my own audio mic’
She also hopes to one day direct a film herself, something she’s actively pursuing.
She now has a two-picture deal with Netflix to work on. Next is Irish Wish, which is set to be released next year. ‘It’s a bigger movie in a sense,’ she explained.
‘It’s a lot more physical comedy. I get to really go deep. It was nice for me to be able to go there because I had to get my feet wet and do Falling for Christmas, and I really wanted to push it more for this one. The one thing that I haven’t done that I’d really love to do is enter the Marvel Cinematic Universe. That’s my dream.’
And she might do Freaky Friday 2. Jamie Lee Curtis expressed interest in a sequel to the 2003 film in which she played Lohan’s mom. ‘We have always remained very close,’ Lohan says of Curtis.
‘It would be a very exciting adventure to go on, and I would be more than happy, and I would not say no. I would say yes. We’ll see.’
For WWW, Lohan looked stunning in the pink dress that consisted of a ruffled neckline with sheer fabric and polka dots.
The top came down into a V-shaped corset. The skirt was a pale colored satin number with a high waistline.

The actress was married in Kuwait in April and has been living with her husband in Dubai.
‘I feel like we skipped like a lot of time because we were in lockdown together. And in Dubai, it was very locked down, so we really got to know each other, which was the best part; there was nothing left to hide,’ she said.
Commenting on life in Dubai, Lohan said, ‘It’s not much different, uh, it’s like life anywhere else. It’s a city, and I mean it is a built, man-made city, but um, it’s beautiful, it’s, there’s no paparazzi, so that’s a whole different thing there.’
Netflix film: Lohan promoted her new Christmas film Falling for Christmas which has been receiving good reviews
The plot of her new movie follows a romance between a wealthy heiress named Sierra suffering from amnesia who falls for a lodge owner named Jake, played by Glee alum Chord Overstreet.
Lohan added that there is an homage to Mean Girls at the end.
It came about when Lindsay proposed the idea in a conversation with the directors and producers.
Lindsay said sarcastically, ‘It was my brilliant idea to bring it up in a conversation with the directors and the producers, and I was like, ‘Oh wouldn’t it be fun if we did a blooper reel at the end and we all kind of did the Christmas scene from the talent show in Mean Girls.»
