Happy birthday, Lindsay Lohan! 27 reasons we're still fascinated by you

27 years ago today, Lindsay Morgan Lohan — née Lindsay Dee Lohan — was born in New York City.

It would be easy enough to mark the occasion by snarking about the state of her career — or with a much darker headline. Somehow, though, doing that wouldn’t feel right. Despite everything — and I do mean everything — Lindsay has said, done, and struck with her car over the past nine-ish years, there’s still a part of me (and maybe even a part of you) that wants to see her bounce back from her self-imposed train-wreckitude and emerge newly born, like a phoenix rising from an ashy nest of hair extensions and cigarette butts.

But why, exactly, am I rooting for Lindsay — and still fascinated by her, after all these years? Let me count the ways:

1. Her ace black and white court attire. It’s the duality of Lohan, guys!

2. Mean Girls, which — let’s face it — may as well be reasons 2-27 on this list. Some movies give an actor a lifetime pass, no matter what else they do professionally or in their personal lives; Mean Girls is one of those movies.

3. Her first-ever television appearance — on Letterman, in 1992, as a trick-or-treater dressed as garbage.

4. Her close and, by all accounts, genuine friendship with Charlie Sheen.

5. Her intense love triangle with Hilary Duff and Aaron Carter, circa 2003.

Lindsay Lohan rasps her way through a gentle 'Tonight Show' interview -- VIDEO

The last time Lindsay Lohan stopped by The Tonight Show, Jay Leno steered the beleaguered actress through a surprisingly frank conversation about her legal woes, her jail time, and what she’s learned from her rocky post-Mean Girls years. “I made a lot of poor decisions in the past,” she told Leno. “And I’m dealing with the consequences of those decisions. So, yeah, there were times when I was concerned [about getting work], but I’m a fighter. And I know I have to work to gain the respect back. And I’m willing to do the work that I have to do to follow through with being an actress.”

Alas, Lohan’s most recent Tonight Show interview wasn’t nearly as candid — though between bouts of nervous hair-playing, she did briefly address canceling on Barbara Walters and the news that she apparently has a half-sister. Of the former, Lindsay said vaguely that “the timing wasn’t right” for a probing 20/20 sitdown; of the latter, she drily commented, “I guess I could give her one word of advice: Good luck with my dad.” READ FULL STORY
