Mini Hollywood-me: Lindsay Lohan's lookalike sister steps into the limelight

Last updated at 11:58 06 March 2008

Lindsay Lohan has always faced stiff competition from other Hollywood starlets.

But now the young actress is facing a threat somewhat closer to home.

Lindsay's 14-year-old sister Ali Lohan was seen out in New York looking uncannily like her older sister at the premiere of film 'High School Confidential'.

Meanwhile Lindsay was out and about in Manhattan the same evening wearing an identical outfit.

Lookalikes: Ali Lohan left, in New York last night, wears her sister's favourite leggings, a cropped jacket and boots. In Manhattan the same evening, Lindsay stepped out in an identical outfit

Dressed in tight black leggings, black boots and a cropped leather jacket, Ali appeared to have borrowed heavily from her sister's style.

But the teenager isn't content to just look like her sister - she also wants a Hollywood career like 21-year-old Lindsay.

Ali, whose real name is Aliana, has modelled as a child and has some limited acting experience appearing in small roles in movies such as "The Parent Trap."

She told Teen Vogue: "I grew up watching Lindsay. It made me want to do what she does.

"Just the whole vibe. Being there, being on camera, or onstage, with everybody listening to's so cool when people look up to you."

Following in her footsteps: Ali, 14, is eyeing a TV and film career, just like her older sister. Their resemblance was even more evident last night when Lindsay let her hair down

The 14-year-old has her sights set on Hollywood, and is planning a singing and acting career.

Mother Dina is masterminding her entry into Hollywood, and it was recently announced the younger Lohan sister has been filming a new reality series for a US TV channel which documents her fledgling acting career.

"Living Lohan" promises to take audiences inside the suburban New York home of Dina and Ali. It starts this summer on US cable network E!

"It's not all that fake stuff," says Ali. "It's just what we do in our everyday life."

The show will also feature her 11-year-old brother, Dakota.

By August, Lohan was in treatment at a rehab facility in Utah. In recent months she has mostly stayed out of Hollywood's limelight.

Dina Lohan came under criticism for, perhaps, allowing her daughter to live a late-night life of Hollywood club-hopping, and E! acknowledged she has faced "intense scrutiny"

But Lisa Berger, executive vice president of original programming for E!, said Dina Lohan "is an incredibly hard-working, passionate mom that I think our viewers will find both relatable and highly entertaining."

E! said it had been given unprecedented access to the Lohan family, including two Lohan bothers -Cody, 11, and Michael, 20.

Meanwhile, Lindsay Lohan is still close with her ex-roommate, Courtenay Semel, but there's a big reason Courtenay had to move out of their LA home — Lindsay is a slob!

According to an insider, Courtenay, 28, ditched the living arrangement because Lindsay, 21, is so messy.

The two thought it would be a good idea to bunk together because Courtenay is sober and a positive influence on the recently rehabbed actress.

But "they just can't live together," a friend told America's In Touch magazine.

A former roommate of the actress says, "Lindsay was always a mess. She had piles of clothes on the floor and on her bed all of the time."

Lindsay Lohan began modeling as a child and created a name for herself as an up-and-coming teenage actress in Disney movies such as "The Parent Trap," "Freaky Friday" and "Mean Girls."

But last year, Lohan's personal life took a tumble as she battled drug and alcohol abuse and was twice arrested twice by police.
