19 Joaquin Phoenix
Back in 2006, it was rumored that Lindsay and "J.Pheonix," as she would call him, dated. The story came from an unknown source, therefore, not many media outlets reported on it.

Joaquin is an actor, producer, and activist. He has won many awards, such as a Grammy Award, a Golden Globe Award, three Academy Awards, and was nominated for a British Academy Film Award. Joaquin apparently had not been seen in the Hollywood scene often because he was working on a project. When he reengaged in the Hollywood party lifestyle and was out in public, he was spotted with Lindsay. Those who saw the two partying together said that Lindsay was all over Joaquin. Despite the two never actually confirming the status of their relationship, Lindsay did admit she had a relationship with the actor by placing his name on her list.
18 Wilmer Valderrama
Best-known for his role as Fez on the hit sitcom, That’s ‘70s Show, Wilmer and Lindsay dated for around a year and a half back in 2004. The couple made their relationship public and Wilmer did not hide the fact that he was in a relationship with Lindsay. In 2006, Wilmer was on the Howard Stern’s radio show and discussed the couple’s relationship in detail. He might have given listeners a little too much information, but surely, Lindsay did not mind hearing that she made her boyfriend happy. The couple dated back when Wilmer was only 24 and Lindsay was 17. It did not matter that when the two started to date, Lindsay was technically underage. Once Lindsay turned 18, the couple was unable to fix their relationship and they split up. Despite no longer being together, Wilmer admitted that he still had feelings for Lindsay, but Lindsay never made it clear if she felt the same way. However, those feelings did not stick around for long and disappeared once he started to date his now ex-girlfriend, Demi Lovato. This relationship was no secret as the couple made many public appearances together.
17 James Franco
James Franco found his name on Lindsay’s former lover list. The actor has joked about being with Lindsay while filming his movie, This Is The End, however, he denies anything actually ever happened between the two. He announced that he is unsure why his name was on that list. He has publicly stated that Lindsay has tried to make a move on him, but he had turned Lindsay down and was never in a relationship with her. When Lindsay found out that James was denying their encounter, she decided to come forth with the details of what took place. She goes into detail about the conversations they had that day and how everything went down. James also commented by, once again, denying it and also saying that she had issues and was delusional for even including him on that list. However, he does claim they were once good friends but are no longer close like they once were. He may be on her list of lovers, but there is no clear evidence that the pair actually dated. There was no explanation given as to why James Franco was on her former lover list, therefore, we do not know the truth behind what happened between the actor and actress.
16 Aaron Carter
In the early 2000's, Lindsay dated the singer, Aaron Carter. The two were around the same age and, due to their careers, they were often around the same group of people, therefore, it comes as no surprise that the two would date. This relationship caused a lot of drama in the media because it starting to form while Aaron Carter and Hilary Duff were still dating. Aaron admitted that after dating Hilary for over a year, he was getting bored with their relationship, therefore, he started to get to know Lindsay Lohan on the side. When Aaron and Hilary broke up, Aaron and Lindsay started to date. However, the feud between Hilary and Lindsay lasted much longer than the relationship between Aaron and Lindsay. Once the couple split, Hilary and Lindsay started a silent war by showing up at each other’s red carpet movie premieres. They knew how to bother one another and knew how to make each other mad. It was not long until the war went public, which led Hilary to ban Lindsay from her film, A Cinderella Story's, premiere. Hilary never spoke negatively about Lindsay, even though Lindsay made it known she was no fan of the Lizzie McGuire actress. It is not clear what started the feud between the two actresses, however, it has been speculated that it had to do with Aaron.
15 Heath Ledger
Another name on Lindsay’s former lover list is Heath Ledger. Lindsay’s mother, Dina, confirmed that her daughter was secretly dating the actor before he died in 2008. Despite this confirmation, Lindsay states that the two were just really good friends and never confirmed that the two were actually in a relationship. This led to many suspicions as to why her mother would confirm something that her daughter denies. With conflicting statements, the public could only think that the couple kept their relationship a secret and out of the media. According to the DailyMail, back in 2011, Lindsay's private diary was made public and she wrote in it that she was in fact in love with Heath and that he was the love of her life. The diary hints that there was a romantic relationship between the two. Whether they were in a relationship or not, on the anniversary of the actor’s death, Lindsay tweeted that he will forever be in her and his daughter’s hearts. Many people speculated that Lindsay must have been close with Heath’s daughter, therefore, there must have been a special relationship between the two.
14 Max George
Late in 2012 through 2013, Lindsay dated Max George, who was a singer in the band, The Wanted. Max George was from the United Kingdom, however, he spent a lot of time in Los Angeles because of his music career.

In numerous interviews, the singer has confessed that Lindsay was his celebrity crush. Max would not confirm whether or not they had anything serious between them. When asked about the couple, his rep would not comment on the relationship between Max and Lindsay. When no one is willing to make a comment, then there must be more to the story that no one wants anyone to know about. Whether if they were in a serious relationship or not, Max has admitted that he called Lindsay after she went to rehab to check up on her and to show his support. This proves that he still cared about her well-being, even if they were no longer in a relationship.
13 Samantha Ronson

Despite not being good for each other, Lindsay and Samantha are still friends and do what they can to maintain a positive friendship. She explained that two toxic people cannot be good together, therefore, they decided to go back to the way things used to be between them since it seemed to work out better when they were just friends. This relationship was major for Lindsay and the media, it was the first public lesbian relationship for the actress and it shocked the public. Their relationship got mixed feelings when it came to the public and how it was preceded in the media. Lindsay admits that even though she felt bold enough to announce that she likes a girl, it put her in a situation where she was being attacked every day.
12 Adam Levine

She would always turn to Eilat when she needed someone to talk to. Those close to her said that the relationship was not good for Lindsay because she was totally obsessing over Eilat and would always be around her and never left her side. Their relationship only lasted a short month and it was not disclosed what happened to the pair or if they remained friends after separating. The media did not hear about Eilat after their split.

Either their relationship never happened or it did not mean anything to Lindsay, therefore, she forgot all about it. This relationship still remains a mystery.
3 Chris Pine
Chris Pine co-starred with Lindsay in the movie, Just My Luck. It is not unusual for people to speculate co-stars dating as it happens often.

Photos surfaced of the two getting cozy while shooting. Despite spending so much time together on set, Jared stated that he did not have many conversations with Lindsay. In fact, he said he did not talk to anyone. He would stay in character all the time and his character was very isolated, therefore, he took that approach as well. This movie was a sensitive topic and he wanted to approach it in the most respectable way possible. The rumors about him and Lindsay being in a relationship were not on his radar.
