Lindsay Lohan Responds After Return to Acting In Christmas Film That Soars to No. 1 on Netflix

Actress Lindsey Lohan has certainly had her share of ups and downs during her career, but she appears to be flying high once again after returning to acting in a rom-com Christmas film that has climbed to No. 1 on streaming giant Netflix.

Lohan took time this week to acknowledge the accomplishment and thank her fans and supporters after the film “Falling for Christmas” topped Netflix streaming charts.

“I can’t even begin to tell everyone how grateful I am for this incredible moment!” the 36-year-old Lohan wrote on Instagram. “To all of the fans and longtime believers in me, I appreciate you.”

“My heart is filled with so much love and gratitude thank you [Netflix] for letting me bring this story to life with such a wonderful cast, director, producers and crew!” she added.

Her post also contained a graphic with her and the film’s stars along with the caption: “‘Falling for Christmas’ number one movie in the world on Netflix.”

The film represents the actress’s return to the romantic comedy genre after more than 10 years. In it, she plays a hotel heiress who, after a series of incidents and obstacles, winds up with amnesia. A man who owns a quaint lodge in town is played by Chord Overstreet of “Glee” fame, and the two of them, along with Overstreet’s on-screen daughter help Lohan recover in many ways.

Lohan is best known for her earlier work in memorable fils like the 1998 remake of the Disney classic “The Parent Trap,” 2003’s “Freaky Friday,” and 2004’s “Mean Girls.”

Recently in an interview, the actress discussed how she had become somewhat envious of young starts today due to the spread of social media and being able to control their “own narrative.”

“No, it is nice,” she told Cosmopolitan magazine. “Because now I feel like … when I first started out in the business, none of us had a say in how to control our own narrative.

“There were paparazzi pictures, and then people ran with it,” she noted further. “So I think it’s really good that in this day and age, people can say who they are and who they want to be. And I admire and appreciate that.”

“I’m a little jealous because I didn’t have that,” Lohan also said. “But I think it moves really fast, and I just try to keep up as best I can. And I check everything before I post it. I’ll send it to people. Because you have to.”
