The Disappearing Girl

Every time you turn on the television or go onto the Internet there’s tons of rumors circulating about her and her supposed nightly drug and alcohol  escapades. In the past two years, Lindsay Lohan has made three stints to rehab, yet, nothing seems to be working. Her career has all but evaporated before her eyes -much like what her body is doing before our eyes.

Lohan originally captured our hearts in Disney’s remake of The Parent Trap, but since then, a combination of too much fame too young and a rocky home life has led Lohan to spiral out of control. Now she makes headlines for her weight and not for her talent as an actress.

After a very public breakup with her girlfriend, Samantha Ronson, it seems as though Lohan will do just about anything for some attention. And that includes starve herself. These recent pictures of Lohan illustrate just how dangerously skinny Lohan has become.lindsay-2

According to Dr. Kent Holtorf, Director of the Holtorf Medical Group in Los Angeles (who does not treat Lohan) the 5’5” starlet weighs around 95-100lbs with a Body Mass Index (BMI) of less than 16. But in order to be considered “healthy” she should be at least 113-149lbs with a BMI of 18-25.

There are signs of muscle wastage, clearly her bones are protruding and she looks quite rigid. She looks like skin and bones at this point, Lindsay clearly looks malnourished and unhealthy for her frame. Holtorf told Fox News

Although the news media is finally speaking out about Lohan’s weight, it comes as too little too late. She, and many other celebrities like her, have been too skinny for too long now. It just so happens that Lohan isn’t as pretty to photograph anymore because her bones are protruding -and she doesn’t seem to mind.

Lohan does have a serious problem, but the media needs to address that she isn’t the only one. Bodies like hers have become the norm in Hollywood.
